Mantis Bug Tracker Comments

hasn't aged well

Negative Comment by stevenlewis
about Mantis Bug Tracker Jun 2016

This software hasn't been really fixed or improved upon for over a decade, save yourself the pain and just find some other tracker.
I decided to give this software another shot: I installed it and then immediately found that I couldn't create users - you can CREATE users, but you can't give them a password from the administrator console, which seems ludicrous. The default PDO is the depreciated mysql (not mysqli, although that is an option)
I needed to create about 20 users and saw that this was pretty much impossible to do easily, so I gave up and looked to find something better.

Great if only it wouldn't be a hassle to set up.

Pro:
There don't seem to be many free bugtrackers out there but MantisBT does a great job once you get it set up correctly and spend hours of time exploring its capabilities.
The bug lists are clear and neat.

Contra:
I spend a lot of time going back and forth between admin pages to find what i am looking for, which can be a bit aggravating at times.

I upgraded the software once, only to find there were a ton of error messages popping up and those backups came in handy. It only seems to be getting worse with newer releases, so i've decided to stop trying.
It's a shame though, i like MantisBT, i really do!
Maybe i'm just doing something wrong, who will tell?
