 Note

This page is to document “what Tiki ‘’should’’ do”. For feature documentation (what Tiki does), please see corresponding page on doc site
Mods is code that is not distributed with the main Tiki. You need to install separately. See mods.tikiwiki.org Type of page »  Feature page

Mods

Mods are barely used anymore. No one has volunteered to maintain the feature. The only use is PluginR and for themes. With the upcoming move to Bootstrap, the only remaining active use will be PluginR. Starting in Tiki13, can we find another way to distribute it (ex.:profiles or Composer), or fix license issues and add to the core like all the others? Marc Laporte

We are currently looking for someone to lead the development on this feature

Feature request for mods installer

  • Usually, modular systems have a *forge approach where each extension/module/plugin can have a mini community. There is currently no way to provide feedback/ratings on mods. No way for people to know what works and what doesn’t. Mods.tikiwiki.org should be a community site, where people can report bugs, document, rate mods, etc
  • Mods which are dead code should be distinguished from mods for other reasons To Mods or not to Mods
  • Mods do not handle version compatibility (this mods is for version 1.9.x, this for 2.x, this for 3.x)
  • There is no help / documentation for manual install of mods in case installer fails.
  • There are command line instructions to run in online help, which is no good for FTP users.
  • Usually, modular systems have a *forge approach where each extension/module/plugin can have a mini community. There is no way to provide feedback/ratings on mods. No way for people to know what works and what doesn’t
  • improve mods installer to be a suitable distribution mechanism for language files and themes
  • How to deal with?
