If you do test, please let us know by updating the following page. If you don't know what to test this page will also help you find the testing gaps

Tiki12x Testing


All regressions have been assigned and being worked on.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do submit a bug report that is flagged as Regression, we would like that report to have the following information

  • What was the last version the feature was functional
  • Give a demo that shows the issue (either using Tiki Show or a link to one of our Community Sites)

Included from Regressions in 12x

 To who find/report a bug:

  1. Test on your website, test on neutral ground demo, test on different version (and log results).
  2. Report to the WishList/Bug Report tracker.
  3. Give short BUT COMPLETE explanation about the problem. (keep the essential remove the rest).
  4. Create an instance so next available Dev will have anything he need to try to solve the issue.
  5. Retest regularly with new release and for each test, confirm your input. Change date and improve explanation.
  6. Answer to the Dev request.
  7. Log any changes and mark as solved IF RESOLVED (pleassssseeeee).

To do on this page

  1. Modify Blockers reports so it shows only blockers and 12.x (regression).

Postponed modifications (previous input from Marc)

    • Regression 12x (categories 283 + 172)
    • Other bugs 12x (categories 283 + 187 or 174 or 192 or 56 or 57 but not 172 or 265)
  1. Explain for each what category you need to put it in to appear on the list
  2. Get rid of the "11.x Regression" category, which is confusing
  3. Change the name of the page from Regressions+in+11x to 11x triage (or something)



  • Perhaps the Composer issues mentioned by Bernard in live.tiki.org on 2013-11-20 (where is ticket?)

Potential data loss

Decision needed

  • pattern for php console.php
  • Recent changes to the DB error page, which takes you to the installer
    • This is problematic because we no longer get useful error messages (such as MySQL went away) Marc Laporte
    • Have been looking at this (for a while) and the only way i can see of even starting to fix this is to effectively roll back r48266, and even then the detailed error messages don't appear (for security reasons afaict), so will leave this alone now... Jonny Bradley

    • Menu entry under MyTiki? (but what to do when MyTiki section is not enabled (default pref)?) Undone, but link in the homepage, and at end of the Admin wizard. (Xavi)
  • Add a few screens of the Dev:Profiles Wizard (Featured, Useful, Demo), from the initial Tiki Setup Screen.
  • Backport menu icons from trunk (Xavi)
  • Maybe backport Jquery Spreadsheet 3.0 or 3.1 once it's proven to be stable in trunk?

  • Non disruptive preps for Bootstrap 3 (like layouts for wiki pages)
  • Menu revamp (drag & drop)
  • NLP progress (with Alain & Matthieu)
  • Realtime
  • Recurring Paypal
  • Theme multilingual improvement (rtl specific folder per theme - with Bernard & Olaf)
