As a new user I thought that the issues I did not tagged as 0-Backlog would not appear in my backlog. I discovered that all issues with no huboard-tag will be listed in backlog.

I imagine how this can be wishable and useful, but in my case (and I think other cases) I use GitHub issues for many things at once:

  • Sprint tasks (Huboard rocks at this)
  • TRAC-like issues
  • TODO-like issues (like long term tasks "as soon as possible" that will not be planned in a sprint)

Maybe you could add an option in huboard settings to choose if we want to put all issues in backlog, or really only the ones tagged with index 0.

I could go about this two different ways...

One possibility is to add some configuration labels and prefix them some how.
Add a labels and document the default hash allowing people to override any of the settings
with labels like this...

turn it off globally
@huboard: :show_all: false

or configure an exclude label.
@huboard: :exclude_label: Label Name

I could pull in those labels and merge them into the defaults hash

@naholyr I've added the ability to only show issues tagged with 0 - Backlog

Add a label to your repository with the following name

@huboard: :show_all: => false

I'm currently working on a big redesign on the marketing branch so I haven't added the ability to
change settings in the UI yet so you'll have to add the label manually from

I wanted to push this out to you so you can start using it because it might be a few weeks before I push out
the new version of huboard.

See the readme for more details
