Tiki5

Tiki5 release is a bit late. As soon as we address the blockers (but not the other sections) on this list, we'll release official 5.0

Schedule

[+]

Blocker (non code)

  1. Finish fivealive.css (mainly modules & middle section) -> http://branding.tikiwiki.org/FiveAlive+Adjustments (Simon, Seb & Gary)


Maybe there needs to be some discussion on whether this is a blocker or not. The mockup image for the modules and middle section hasn't come from Simon yet so the CSS, etc. hasn't been done, but if the basic styling of this part of the page is "good enough," then it can be finished up for 5.1 or so when the design is done (IMHO). — Gary

Blocker (code)

  • several upgrade script errors
    • sylvie: since now the tiki-schema is not updated if an error occurs - the error can be legitimate - as you backport something .... We need a tool to say that the script is ok and as been added to tiki_schema
      • should be ok with 26926
  • regression with commit 26283: categories perms on individual files are no more tested
    • JB: I tried but got lost and only managed to make it worse - sorry
    • Rodrigo: I did a rollback commit of the changes in revision 26283. We don't have a regression anymore but permission check for galleries with individual permission is now broken in some cases (as it was before).
  • tiki-calendar.php shows nothing! (reported by some other user in devellist, and confirmed by Xavi in another site upgrade from 4.2 to 5.0rc1 - r27205). Example: http://intercanvis.net/tiki-calendar.php Fixed in r277354

Important

  • preferences modified via profiles should be in tiki-syslog.php, the same as manual changes
  • http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_articles.php has "Array" in browser title fixed in latest 5.x
  • Admin panels
    • review tiki-admin.php?page=features for new vs experimental vs programmer, etc
  • Ensure that old spreadsheets (before Tiki5) can be opened in any of both editors in Tiki5. Some examples from Xavi can't be edited after upgrade to Tiki5 with any of both editors. example


Todo

Issues testing an upgrade from 4.2 to 5.0

After upgrade from 4.2 to 5.0rc1 (r27205) in http://intercanvis.net (I saw some blank screen after the step when _I saw that in theory all sql commands were executed successfully - maybe due to the fact that max_execution_time was 6 seconds by default in the server):

  • Some external feeds showed nothing after the upgrade. However, they seem to be working in info.tw.o, for instance, and they were working in intercanvis.nert with tiki 4.2. What changed in external feeds between 4.x and 5.x?
    • The problem seemed to be with refresh view, which doesn't refresh the external feed. And upgrade was performed on a new path in the server, so no external feeds saved on disk at the new path.
  • site language can't be changed: always stays as English (neither from "Admin > i18n" nor from side module switch lang).
  • submit article ( http://intercanvis.net/tiki-edit_submission.php ) doesn't show the horizontal menu that it's displayed in all the other screens. Same for tiki-list_submissions.php
  • header with this code shows the image to the right, and no more to the left, as in 4.2 (I've added a space after the "<" sign so that I can post html code here:
    < div style="float:none" align="left">< a href="index.php">< img src="show_image.php?id=37" width="100" /></a></div>
  • tiki-syslog.php contains some db error messages from the moment of the site upgrade from 4.2 to 5.0rc1. Those lines say something like:
    Unknown column 'tfg.backlinkPerms' in 'field list' -....

    I'm not aware of setting anything related to backlinks perms...
  • Minify javascript and minify css work fine, but "Minify CSS into a single file" (tiki_minify_css_single_file) breaks layout for me when enabled.

Affects *.tikiwiki.org but not most sites


Icons

This whole section is (?????)

  • Payment deployment
    • Need icon for Tiki Payment to appear in tiki-admin.php and link to tiki-payment.php
    • link to tiki-payment.php in menu
  • Metrics and Ratings deployment
    • Need icons for tiki-admin.php?page=metrics and tiki-admin.php?page=rating
  • tiki-admin.php?page=bigbluebutton admin panel


jonnyb's wishlist

If any one else wants to do some of these, please do go ahead! eek

  • Upgrade jQuery to 1.4.2 and jQuery.UI to 1.8
    • Will mean upgrading other plugins too probably.
      • all seems ok, yar?
    • JB working with Robert Plummer on jQuery.sheet 1.0x now
  • Upgrade FCKeditor to 2.6.6
    • Done, i think sept_7 sorted it
  • Refactor new user / change password code (we have 3 versions at least?)
    • others have mostly done this - thanks. needs a re-look and tidy-up for 6.x (ok for 5.0 i think)
  • Remove the stupid, annoying, buggy, misleading getElementById function in tiki-js.js
    • for 6.x deffo - too disruptive for 5 now - lots more jqueryifying needed too generally....
  • Webmail from account fix
    • not sure what this means now biggrin - fixed the "from email" thing somewhere in 5.x, needs more attention in 6.x

Nice to have

  • Finish all Preferences (Pkdille, help needed)
  • 30 minutes fixes
  • Tiki4 leftovers
  • Define min spec
    • PHP 5.?
    • MySQL 4.1?
    • Apache (relevant?)
    • Memory
      • for server - 256MB is painful
      • and for php.ini memory_limit is 32MB still enough?
  • Admin panels
    • feature_bot_logo depends on feature_bot_bar (but not in admin panel)
    • tiki-admin.php?page=ads -> should not be conditional to banner ad feature
  • tiki-edit_translation.php not working for articles (excellent for wiki though)


See Roadmap


Documentation

Documentation for the end user of the changes and improvements included with this new release:
http://doc.tikiwiki.org/Tiki5

  • WebDAV : documentation for the end user is missing, and Xavi hasn't been able to make it work under GNU/Linux (maybe some configuration is missing). Marc managed to make it work, it seems, under ms windows. Done (better than nothing): WebDav

  • xavi has been requesting a copy of the documentation structure to coordinate a new version of the documentation in odt & pdf. See Printing the Documentation to attempt to print that structure in one single html + images (WSOD so far for the last months). Help is needed
    • user coaboa offered to produce a new odf/pdf out of that Documentation. Xavi packaged all documentation in a single html file, and coaboa is analyzing the best way to handle such long 2000 pages document (after correct pagination it could be hundreds of pages shorter).

  • Documentation is needed about how to use the worksapces, while there is not easy worksapces GUI.

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.
