Blog

Status/RoadMap

We have basic blogs, with flexible permissions, trackback pings, RSS feeds, etc. Blogs need a bit of work on features, and a lot of work of UI & stability. Tiki articles are similar and much more flexible and powerful.

A project: Blog Revamp

I don’t have time right now to do something detailed. But to get the ball
rolling, these are the features that are needed:

1) Users must be able to be designated as individual blog owners.

2) Blog owners must be able to admin blogs that they own but they are not
necessarily global blog admins.

3) Other users (i.e. tiki groups I suppose) must be able to be set by the
blog admin (whether global or individual blog) to have different
permission levels at the individual blog level (i.e they can be author in
one blog, but moderator in another blog).

4) Blog commenting should be a separate permission from wiki commenting
etc... all other commenting, and should be able to be set at the blog
level as well.

5) Blog moderating is necessary. Something like the article moderation
system but for blogs. This must respect individual blog ACL, see no. 3
above.

6) All of the above must be enforced using something other than the Tiki
category system, because the category system is still needed to categorize
blogs in the normal way.

7) Free tagging must be available for blogs. This includes tagcloud. This
is to be separate (i.e. in addition to) Tiki categories. It will be nice
to enable personal tags (i.e. creation of tag cloud that compose of only
one’s personal interests) as well.

8) Spam protection, not just Captcha but something backend based on IP,
repeated posts/whatever algorithm should be available to handle both
trackback and comment spam. See http://akismet.com/

9) Blogs should support XHTML, microformats, and allow structured
blogging. See http://structuredblogging.org/

10) Something like reblog will be nice. See http://www.reblog.org/


Ricks99 added:
Thanks for asking! Many of mine are the same as what you’ve already got:
- Better CAPTCHA support for anonymous postings/comments. Also need a better way to manage Trackback Ping SPAM.
- Automatic submission/ping support for major sites (Technorati, Feedster, etc.).
- Structured blogging support
- Assign polls to Blog entries (for rankings, like in wiki pages). Or some other rating system. Something similar to Digg.
- I like the permissions suggestion. I see three blog-level permission settings: Admin (Tiki admin/controls everything, Owner (Admin a specific blog), Contributor (Can post to a blog).

My biggest concern, though, is that the blog interface (both contributor and reader) is u-g-l-y. I know that everyone has their own opinion when it comes to “what looks good” and Tiki has unlimited theme flexibility, but IMHO, the default blog interface (http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_blog.php?blogId=26 ) looks bad and is confusing to use.

I’ll be the first to admit that my initial redesign attempt (http://www.keycontent.org/tiki-view_blog.php?blogId=1) isn’t great either. Better themes (http://themes.tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_blog.php?blogId=1) help, but it is still....I don’t know.... “messy” looking. Does that make sense?


Adding an image in the blog should use the new “pick from file gallery feature” and the old way should be discontinued

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
