This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



A simple bug-tracking/issue-tracking/case-management system.

Create new issues just as you would a post. Each issue can be assigned a status, priority, and issue type. Issues can be assigned to specific users on the site.

Projects are stored in a separate taxonomy. Issues can be assigned to projects just as you assign posts to categories.

Issues can be update or reassigned through the comment form.

  1. Download and unzip the plugin
  2. Upload the BuggyPress folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Create new issues (the Issues menu is just under the Posts menu)

Upgrading to 0.2 from 0.1.x

There is no clean upgrade path from version 0.1.x to newer versions of BuggyPress. The Project taxonomy has disappeared, and has been replaced with Project posts. All projects will have to be re-created, and issues will not be automatically associated with projects.

After upgrading be sure to visit your permalinks settings page to update permalinks. Then visit the BuggyPress options page to designate permissions for Projects.

Want to write an update script to fix this? Let me know. I’ll be happy to include it in the plugin (or make you a committer, if you’re so inclined).

My comment form doesn’t have options to update issues.

Your theme must implement the comment_form template tag. Otherwise, the plugin will not be able to modify the comment form to insert the necessary fields.

How do I attach files to a comment/update?

BuggyPress doesn’t yet support this. You might try another plugin, like Easy Comment Uploads to add this functionality.

Is this compatible with multi-site installs?

Yes. Each site will have its own projects and its own issues.
