Description

Plugin developers very often overwrite queries helper column_value and column_content.

The problem is, that there two ways to overwrite it: prepend and alias_method. There is a conflict if one plugin uses prepend and the other plugin uses alias_method for the same method.

More and more plugins do not work together because of this reason. Because of this, there should be a better way to solve this wish to overwrite.

I added a patch to introduce two hooks, which could be used by plugin develops. With this approach there is no need for overwriting this method anymore.

Hi Go MAEDA

Can anything be done to bring forward the integration of this patch? This has the potential to solve a fairly sizable problem hampering plugin developers, and users of those plugins alike.

Quickly perusing what is listed in Candidate for next major release and it seems like many enhancements simply go there to die, numerous patches are 5+ years old. Please do reconsider whether this solution can be safely implemented within the next minor release.

Hi Alexander,

This is Dimitar from the RedmineUP Support Team.

Just for information, as a note, all our plugins are compatible with Redmine 5+ :)

Screenshot reference (by now the latest Redmine version is the one from the screenshot below ---> 5.0.4 stable):

If there are any problems with the compatibility (or any other questions) with the RedmineUP plugins, please feel free to contact us at . Thanks.

Hi Dimitar,

this issue is not about Redmine 5 compatibility, it is about prepend and alias_method incompatibility. If every plugin would use the more modern way with prepend, a lot of problems with compatibility would be solved. Sadly Redmineup plugins stick to alias_method.
