ST to RT Investigation: Changes Requests for CSCF/MFCF RT Queues

Change requests, by term, most recent first. Before items will appear here, they will be reviewed by CSCF and possibly MFCF to determine what are our priorities. See ST To RT Requests And Issues.

Summary Custom Field: Implementation Details

  • We want our summary to be much wider than the default text field. And, ideally, type=Wiki.
  • RT will allow multiple Custom Fields with the same Name. We'd prefer "Summary" but if there's a reason you prefer not to, we could use "Summary (Wiki)"
  • Making it display wide will require a second step, after the field is created, which depends on the ID number generated for it. As previously discussed, Jeff and I will handle that part.

  • Implementation: Admin menu -> Tools -> Theme -> Add text (at top) :
  • Replace "129" with ID in source-code or CF overview page.
textarea.CF-129-Edit { 
   width: 400px !important; 
}
