Bug Links


Bug Links will filter commonly used references to bug numbers into active links to those bugs. It supports numerous Free Software projects, and adding support for more, despite being a code change at the moment, is very straightforward.

It will filter bug references such as:

  • wordpress bug #55555
  • wordpress bug 55555
  • wordpress #55555

With or without space before the #.

If you would like your project supported in Bug Links, please send me the base bug URL for your tracker and a 16×16 icon (PNG preferred) to represent it.
