set the same comment to multiple issues (not copies)

Post by chrislegato »

I see it's possible to add comment to multiple issues, but as far I can say (by comment IDs and editing), issues get separate copies of that comment.

Is it possible to have the same (in terms of later editing) comment attached under multiple issues?

This is not possible out of the box.
You would have to change source code of Mantis or write a plugin to get what you want.

Sad, because such feature would be very useful for my projects.

For now, the only way around I see, is to manually reedit entries in database and start from there, I guess.
I don't speak php, unfortunately.

Editing database entries works and is easy to use, so the issue is partially solved.

However I would expect some updates on that in the next iteratios of mantisBT.
It's really useful to moderate only one comment, that is common to multiple issues.
