Description hno 1999-12-23 06:34:30 EST
It would be very convenient if there was a button to return to the bug list
when viewing/editing a bug in a query result. There exists buttons to
navigate thru the list, but nothing to view the actual list again.
Comment 1 Riley H Williams 1999-12-23 15:54:59 EST
I use my browser's BACK button for this, if that helps.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 1999-12-23 15:57:59 EST
I admit this would be nice but would actually not be a trivial addition. I will
look into this as time allows.
Comment 3 hno 1999-12-23 17:46:59 EST
It does not help much when you have navigated a few steps, added some comment
and so on.

Adding it should be quite trivial. You have the bugid list in a cookie, and it
should not be that much work to build a display from that by either using a
modified buglist script, or adding the functionality to the existing one.

Looking thru the script it is actually quite trivial. There is a SQL backdoor on
buglist.cgi, and you can use it to create any query. Simply create a link to


where 4753,7683,4532 is the current value of BUGLIST.

This diff should do it I think.. (not tested, don't have a bugzilla installed

Comment 5 David Lawrence 2000-01-24 13:48:59 EST
My fault. I did overlook that one feature of the Bugzilla system. You are right
using that functionality it is a simple task. I have added it and should show up
