I can confirm the issue on a local trunk installation. It does only occur for new users which have not yet an entry in the user_preferences table. Following r3194, the my page layout is initialized empty instead with DEFAULT_LAYOUT. The attached patch fixes this and provides some tests.

  • Category set to My page
  • Status changed from New to Confirmed
  • Affected version (unused) set to 2.2.1
  • Affected version set to 2.2.1

I can confirm this misbehaviour.

This is still included in Redmine 2.2.1.

The patch looks good in my opinion. It should correct this bug.

  • Target version set to Candidate for next minor release

There's even a test, woohoo.

#4 Updated by Marius BALTEANU 10 months ago

  • Status changed from Confirmed to Closed
  • Resolution set to Wont fix

I'm closing this issue because "My page" was refactorized in 3.4.0 and "Personalize" mode doesn't exists anymore (the widgets are edited inline). Please reopen it if I'm wrong.
