The ability for users to engage in a dialogue about project issues is an important part of what any issue tracking tool should provide. One way to achieve this is to allow users to leave comments directly on the issues. The comments will form a conversation about the issue and provide an immediate, as well as historical context to help track the full lifespan of any issue. We will also use comments to demonstrate using Yii widgets and establishing a portlet model for delivering content to the user (for more information on Portlets , visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portlet ).
In this article by Jeffery Winesett, author of Agile Web Application Development with Yii1.1 and PHP5, we will focus on some of the nice-to-have features in our TrackStar application.

Sometimes, the default color combinations may not be suitable for presentation or publication.
