Description

The 'New Ticket' link on the trac system is very prominent. Many people don't see the link to the TicketHowTo before they make a new ticket or feature request. This is a patch to the trac system that adds a link to that wiki page directly to the 'New Ticket' web page.

I made this patch on my trac system which I think is an older version to the one used by myth. While I doubt it will apply cleanly, I suspect it will be very easy to port.

On my system, I edited the file: /usr/share/trac/templates/newticket.cs

with the following patch:

--- newticket.cs.orig	2006-01-09 20:19:52.072614974 +1100
+++ newticket.cs	2006-01-09 20:24:27.295559059 +1100

 <div id="content" class="ticket">
 
 <h3>Create New Ticket:</h3>
+<p>Have you read the <a href="<?cs var:$trac.href.wiki ?>/TicketHowTo">Guide for submitting MythTV Feature Requests, Bugs and Patches</a>?</p>
 <form id="newticket" action="<?cs var:cgi_location ?>#preview" method="post">
  <div class="field">
   <label for="reporter">Your email or username:</label><br />

I'm guessing you can just copy that one new line directly into your instance of newticket.cs

Be well,

Will :-}

Thanks, that's a good idea.
