Thanks for the release!

New feature “Allow closing modals by clicking on the background” seems a little dangerous to me. If I start entering a new task and click accidentally on the background then all the data I have already entered is lost.
Is there a way to disable this feature?


I didn’t check it, but the correct way would be to inhibit closing when the content is modified.

Hi Alfred,

have already updated to 1.2.28.

Yes I think also there should at least be a warning if you try to close it with new or changed content and if you chekk the pull request Allow closing modals by clicking on the background by fguillot · Pull Request #5226 · kanboard/kanboard · GitHub then there are some hints that this was planned, but unfortunatly it’s not working this way. You can start entering data in a new task and then click on the background and all the entries are lost.

Will revert to 1.2.27 until this is fixed (and will open a new issue).


Sidenote: For me personally, the danger of accidentally hitting the ESC key in a modified modal dialog is much higher.


I thikn this commit should fix it:

Yupp! For me also: accidentally pusehd Mouse Button ‘next’ or ‘prev.`’
