Description

When you try to access a wiki page which doesn't exist, Tiki offers you a list of similarly named pages, to search for that word, to create the page, etc.

Good.

When you try to access other contents in Tiki (articles, blog posts, etc.) that don't exist (either have been deleted, moved, not yet published, protected, etc.), you get a Tiki error message.

Good as well.


But what if you try an URL which is just not possible?

Ex.: If you migrated from another system to Tiki and you are still getting hits with the previous URLs?

Of course, you could check your access logs and add nice redirects. But how can we make this easier for site admins?


The bundled _htaccess file (which you need to rename .htaccess to make active) has an example line:

Image
ErrorDocument 404 /tiki-index.php?page=Page+not+found


This is good.

Now, how could we use this to provide the Tiki admin with a top-x error pages? And thus, it would help to detect broken links, etc.

Could .htaccess include some configuration info from Tiki? So a Tiki admin could add configuration information without using FTP, all in Tiki, possibly with a secret "system" wiki page.

Great inspiration:

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.
