Feedback for Tiki7 Use file galleries for wiki attachments

r35073: bug: if you upload a file to a wiki page, the file gallery is created but the file is not uploaded to this newly created gallery fixed for 7.1




  • File gallery names are chopped off at 80 characters, but wiki pages are sometimes longer
  • What happens if page is renamed or deleted?
    • File Gallery is not deleted and there is no way to manually delete ex.: tiki-list_file_gallery.php?galleryId=272 has no delete button and since it's not browseable like most file galleries, I can't delete from parent view
  • Once you activate, existing attachments are no longer available
    • yet, they are still in tiki-admin.php?page=wikiatt
  • There should be a way (beyond WebDAV) to navigate all file galleries that are linked to wiki pages
    • It would be nice to have an optional column here: tiki-listpages.php
  • There is no script to move data back and forth from wiki_attach to file_gal?
  • It creates a file gallery for each page (even if it doesn't yet have a file attached) and thus, since your last visit grows.
  • Archives are working at tiki-list_file_gallery.php?galleryId=6 but not on the wiki page
    • Workaround is to not use archives

UI to improve

  • All operations (Replace, edit properties, etc) should send you back to the wiki page after.
  • wiki attachments in File Gallery: search result link doesn't link to wiki page?
    • Can be fixed more easily with improvements in Tiki8

to test

  • Watch : does it work for file gallery attached to wiki page?
  • Search in Files : test with Lucene (expected to be OK)
  • Check if perms are OK

Making Image galleries obsolete

Please indicate below what is needed to make Image Galleries obsolete. (and thus they can be removed because everyone will be using file galleries).

  1. A data migration script.
    • See Robert Plummer, who has a basic script
  2. Redirect scripts so old URLs work
  3. Features/characteristics that image galleries have that file galleries don't:
    • Separate thumbnail files are created
    • Can set size of thumbnails and regenerate
    • PNG images don't seem to lose transparency like they do with file galleries
    • Can scale images (although this has never worked for me)
    • Can browse full size images with one image per page with related info
    • Can sort thumbnail view by name, date, hits, user, size

Keywords [toggle]

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.
