I have a 3.3 Tiki Application with a File Gallery configured to store files in the MySQL database. It IS possible to upload zip files and unzip them during the upload. Very useful!
I'm testing a 4.0 instance of the same application, and now the "batch upload" feature does not upload and unzip *.zip files.
I noticed the following comment in the Tiki docs....
"Note that you can use the Batch uploads only when you don't use the database to store the content of the files!"
Was some functionality taken away?! I sure miss it.
If I change to storing files in a directory (instead of the DB),
will that also mean the loss of full-text search capabilities?
UPDATE - Not A True Work-Around January 13 - 2010
Attached are a Word and PDF doc that describe the
changes (hacks) in filegallib.php that restore the
"unzip zip files" functionality to Tiki 4.1, when
configured to store binary files in the MySQL database.
Unfortuately, my crude hacks circumvent the new file quota checks,
but that feature seems to be the source of my problems. There
is no documentation on how to properly configure quotas, and
the default settings seem to lead to the unzipping problem.
This hack seems to break the full-text search feature that
is provided by connecting Tiki to utilities like "catdoc"
and "pdftotext". Also, this hack seems to break uploading
of multiple files one at a time.

Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
