So far, there are three modes. Categories, tags, and assignment. You can drag topics between lists to change the corresponding attributes:
Lists are ‘lazy-loaded’, so performance is reasonable, even for very large numbers of categories. You can enter fullscreen mode for even more space to organise your projects:
The default board mode will be automatically determined using these criteria:
If this is the top level, use categories mode
If this is a category, and there are sub-categories, use categories mode
Otherwise, use tags mode. (Lists built from ‘top tags’ list)
You can change the board mode using the filter button on the left, and configuration changes will be reflected in the URL. Users can bookmark their favorite configuration in their browser. Administrators can customize the defaults per-category in the theme settings.
Hi @ninjapenguin, thanks for the PR - I put a response on there. Unfortunately it still needs some changes before we can merge it. In particular, the issue around multiple AJAX requests needs to be resolved, otherwise clients will be rate-limited.
The other thing that I think I want, and I usually hate stuff like this, is to have another set of tags that can be used to set the color. I have today in a column but want to have colors for different types of jobs. How hard is it to add a div for tags?
There is this version which makes the kanban boards work with tags, and adds a ‘board’ tab to tag pages. It contained an error which sent too many requests, and so was never merged into the main plugin.
Unfortunately the developer who made the update dropped out and so the bug was never resolved, although it’s been running fine on our site until the latest Discourse update. You’d be very welcome to use it if that would resolve your issue. @david commented on what needed done here, before it becomes a part of his main Kanban plugin code
Great work, @david. We have one use case where it would be helpful if the topics in each column were sorted by date created, rather than date of last reply. Is this possible? If it’s not a simple thing, I can go to #marketplace, but any clues would be appreciated.
I’m on current tests-pass and version 1.0 of the component.
How do I set kanban as the default category view? Using tags mode. Board shows up as a selectable option in the menu, but I’d like to assign it as the default view for the category. I’ve tried customizing the component settings, but it just won’t display as default category view.
Is there any way to set this to only show tags from one tag-group sitewide?
I have it on tags mode and only want it to create a list for some tags across the site and not others. Users will be able to use tags like normal and the only ones which will create a column in the tags board are the tag-group ‘manufacturers’.
On my site the Kanban component is set to only create Kanban columns on all boards for the tag-group ‘manufacturers’.
If a user creates a thread and enters these tags: Honda, Convertible, Frank, Paris. The only tag which would create its own list in the board is ‘Honda’.
I get the impression this is already possible using the params in ‘default mode’ setting, but i tried for hours and cant work it out.
