How best to deal with Entries that may overlap?


I am trying to design my sites structure and have decided to make a catalogue similar to your confirmed bugs catalogue in which it will hold fixes. The thought occurred to me that sometimes you may make a fix to a certan file only to later discover another bug in that same file that needs fixing also.

Now what would be the best way to deal with the existing catalogue entry that fixed one issue in that same file but now there is a newer version of the file with more fixes so that someone looking for the original fix gets the latest version of the file? (Are you folowing me here? hehe)

Is it Possible to maybe strike thru and reference the new fix from the original entry or do you think it better to just delete the original entry and or modify the original entry and not add a new bug entry? Or do you have even better approach method ideas?

difficult but there is a 'reference' catalogue field type, for cross referencing

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
