The Joomla! Issue Tracker is an official Joomla! website focused on reporting Joomla! bugs, testing patches, submitting patches and submitting new feature requests. Four projects are currently integrated here:
We are always looking for more people to test patches, find and fix bugs, and help clarify issue reports on our bug tracker. Do not hesitate to join us. If you want to learn more about the process, please read, among others, the article on how to report bugs and issues on Joomla's Documentation Wiki.
The Joomla! Issue Tracker is powered thanks to the Joomla! Framework, integrating with GitHub's REST API and is a replacement for Joomla's previous issue tracking platform hosted on JoomlaCode.
The Joomla! Framework is a free and open source PHP framework which allows building powerful web applications by writing web and command line applications in PHP, without the features and corresponding overhead found in the Joomla! Content Management System (CMS).
The Issue Tracker application is the result of the hard work of Dmitry Rekun, Nikolai Plath, Michael Babker and Zehan Zhao. In addition to these 4 individuals, 23 others have contributed to the issue tracker. You can see all contributors on GitHub.
Until 2014, Joomla! was using JoomlaCode as a resource for developers to build and manage Open Source software projects centered around Joomla. In 2011, the Joomla! Project started to use GitHub for hosting its code projects and, in parallel, it was decided to migrate the issue tracking platform to GitHub as well. The issue tracker is an extension of GitHub's own issue management system and adds several features and workflows to enable Joomla! community members to actively contribute to the project.
Development on the issue tracker began in September 2012.
The first contributors to the issue tracker realised the importance of making our system open to the international community and this is represented in the core development of the issue tracker. Since nearly the beginning of its development, the issue tracker has supported a localised interface and has welcomed community translations, first from Transifex and now Crowdin. Today the issue tracker's interface is translated in over two dozen languages.
We welcome all individuals who wish to help improve the translations by joining the project on Crowdin.
