Resolution: Affected version:1.1.2


Some parts of pages (specially some form fields) should be shown as left-to-right (LTR) even in right-to-left (RTL) locales.

Some important fields which should always be shown as LTR everywhere are:
  • Email address (line edit)
  • URL (line edit)
  • Host name (line edit)
  • Username (line edit)
  • Password (line edit)
  • Language (selection list)
  • Time zone (selection list)
  • Editor (selection list in admin settings)
  • Encoding (selection list in repository settings)
  • All numerical fields (examples: issue id of parent, estimated hours, activity hours, % Done, maximum file sizes, ...)

There may be other always-LTR fields. But finding all of them is an exhaustive task which I haven't done yet.

  • Target version set to Candidate for next major release

#2 Updated by Ebrahim Mohammadi over 11 years ago

Yet another important always-LTR field: Project identifier (line edit) which can only contain ASCII alphanumeric characters regardless of current locale.

#3 Updated by Ebrahim Mohammadi over 11 years ago

The first paragraph of /admin/info page (which shows name and version of running Redmine and name of the backend, both always in English) is always-LTR.

#4 Updated by Ebrahim Mohammadi over 11 years ago

"Age" and "Date" columns of repository view must be RTL in RTL locales. But they're currently always LTR wrongly.
