"GZip output" (feature_obzip) causes encoding errors in CSRF and error screens
"Gzip output" (feature_obzip) is defective in two different tikis (in 2 different servers).... proposals/6x and trunk

Once enabled, when I attempt to visit a few pages as anonymous, for which I should see the "Error, your are not logged in. Go to Log in Page" message, I see instead a message from firefox saying that there is an error in the enconding of the content (attempting to use a compression method not valid or that it doesn't work in this application):

Error de codificació del contingut

No ha pogut mostrar-se la pàgina que esteu intentant visualitzar perquè utilitza una forma de compressió no vàlida o que no funciona en aquesta aplicació.

* Poseu-vos en contacte amb els propietaris del lloc per a informar-los del problema.

Once I disable the gzip output, tiki behaves normally.
Moreover, this issue might have been the reason why the new spreadsheet features being developed in trunk by robertplummer were failing (Chrome just says that the server is temporarily unavailable) recently in a test we were doing in the same server.

And that might be the (potential) responsible for the issues with sending newsletters in prposals/6x (just before the release of tiki 6.2).

Fix for Bug Ticket ID 2184
I have confirmed this bug (2184) in Tiki 6.3 using Chrome and IE7/8.

PluginButton locks entire wiki in 500 internal error when included in a user plugin
When the PluginButton plugin is included in a User Module and that User Module is used on the wiki, it will lock down the wiki in "Internal Error 500" mode. So no matter what page you visit, you will get "500 internal error".

6.x: accepting a structure sent between tikis fails (column 'page_alias' cannot be null)
After sending a structure between 2 tiki sites (using the send pages features between tikis, xmlrpc, etc), once I clicked on the button to accept the received structure in the target tiki site, I got this error:

Column 'page_alias' cannot be null

The query was:
insert into `tiki_structures`(`parent_id`,`page_id`,`page_alias`,`pos`, `structure_id`) values(?,?,?,?,?)



The built query was likely:
insert into `tiki_structures`(`parent_id`,`page_id`,`page_alias`,`pos`, `structure_id`) values('0','70',NULL,'1','0')

6x: Webmail account can't be deleted (& unreliable behavior)
((GroupMail)) is not working for me any more since I updated a site to 6.x from 4.x
In 4.x it was working me (I created most of the documentation in doc:((doc:Groupmail))

Maybe that's because Webmail is not working either...?

What I did:
* installed a new tiki proposals/6x tiki site in localhost
* added ajax_xajax feature to the groupmail profile (it was missing)
* applied Groupmail profile
* followed instructions to setup a new group (web)mail account
* the module groupmail is spinning all the time, and no messages are shown
* I've double checked that the user and pass info for that email account are all right

I also applied that profile on a remote server (a production site) and no luck either. No email is fetched.
I checked the webemail account (by means of other webmail software) and I confirm that it has plenty of read email, and 2 new messages pending to be read.
Weird, after I tried to unsuccessfully delete that account in the remote (production) server, it seems that webmail started to work!

:-/ Well, it looks boggy to me, or at least, for sure it's been unrealiable behavior!

At elast, for sure tehre is a bug at removing a webmail account: which is not removed (even if you ckick again at the confirmation step, the account is still there)

attachements to forum posts get lost if the user clicks to preview the post first
Using tw.o forums and 2.0 (afaik):

You add a screenshot attachment to a reply in a forum post, and if you click on "preview" first, (as you would do on wiki pages), the image is lost (no tag is inserted on the forum post to help you link the attachment).

However, if you do the same attachment on a post, and click to post it (without previewing it first), the attachment link is shown.

Example at tw.o forums where it recently happened:

according to comment added to this bug report, this issue is still present in branch Tiki5 still (so probably also in trunk)
Unbelievable, bug still present in forum posts in 12.x since 1.x! (with forum replies, there is warning, at least, but not yet with brand new posts in the forum and attachment is lost indeed) {sign user="xavi" datetime="2013-11-22T09:45:52+00:00"}

Category Permissions not taken care properly for showing wiki pages
Please help since we have invested much time and effort in this project, believing Tiki could filter rightly wiki pages based on perms, and since I cannot find a workaround.

When not logged in, Some wiki pages are shown, and Some others Not, while they all have exactly the same set up. They all have been categorized only in "Public Content" category which is set to Show wikis to Anonymous users, while Global perms are set to not show them to anonymous.

At this moment we have two identical wiki pages as setup is concerned:
1) http://mi.solcentral.org/tiki-index.php?page=La+Funci%C3%B3n+Esencial+y+El+Prop%C3%B3sito+de+Vida
which doesn´t show to Anonymous users (and should do it)


2) http://mi.solcentral.org/tiki-index.php?page=Sobre+el+Sitio+SolCentral-org
which shows well.
Note that at the botton of this page, in the listing of pages related to the category "Contenido Público" (which is the translation of "Public content"), the page "The Esential Function And Life's Purpose" (wich is the translation of "La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida") that is the page 1)... Then if you click on it, it will not show presenting you with the login invitation, allthough is shown in the list as categorized "Public Content".

Other extraneous behavior is that when when you use the Plugin Toc to show the structure, only shows Some wikis on some structures, and on some other structures doesn´t show any wiki.
I have used this:~np~{toc structId="26" order=asc shownum=1 type=fancy }~/np~ in the wiki:

Actual estate of config is:

For anonymous:

If Perms on wiki: "La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida"

La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_view Categoría: Public Content
La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_view_backlink Categoría: Public Content

La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments Categoría: Public Content
La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_wiki_view_comments Categoría: Public Content

Category Perms of "Public Content" are

for anonymous group perms that are ON:

Can view wiki attachments and download (tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments)
Can view page/pages (tiki_p_view)
View page backlinks (tiki_p_view_backlink)

Global Perms are:

on Wiki:

Can view wiki attachments and download (tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments) is ON for Anonymous
Can view page/pages (tiki_p_view) is OFF for Anonymous
View page backlinks (tiki_p_view_backlink) is ON for Anonymous

Fixes tried:

Have tried the opposite: allowing everything to be shown to Anonymous, and then restrict on pages that should be hidden with a "invisible" category with perms tiki_p_view OFF for anonymous group.

And it didn´t work since - again - for Some wikis worked, and for some others not. Even if they are identical.

3. Click on Category, so it show the availabre Categories
4. Choose two categories, then click Select button. It reloads the page.
5. Click on New/Edit tab
6. Write a label: "New"
7. Chosse From and To options
8. Click SAVE. It goes to the List of Transitions
9. If I click on Edit icon, it deletes de transition and goes to the New/Edit tab, but empty... nothing selected or filled.

Danger with Watches and PluginGroup
When writing a particular wiki page, and being set this page to be watched to a group (let say Registered users).

Then if the page has plugingroup to hide particular peaces of special text that is not intended to be known by certain users. Then every time this page changes, a notification email is sent to all Registered users (this is ok), but in the content of this email all the source code is revealed to EVERY user on the Registered group, regardless if they have the right to see Source of wikis.

Don´t know how this could survive the testing and dogfood of this community. May be there is another way to let the Registered group to be acknowledged of a change in a wiki, without compromising content. Please enlight me on how to do this much of the work done on our live tiki portal uses plugingroup to restrict snippets of text to certain groups and other snippets has to shown, in the same wiki.

There should be an option to configure a watch to be sent in a way that only alerts the user that a particular page has changed without showing all source, in respect to a particular right to see or no to see the source.

I have checked on the proper user rights and object perms to avoid them to receive this notifications in the proper way, but tiki doesn´t seem to take it.

Dates format in all GUI

Because of partial translations of pages, I use French or English GUI translated and sometimes Spanish, Italian or German.
Because I Have defined complementary of elements of GUI dictionary, it is not so evident to take care the whole time with which language you are working and more the associated date format.

It is the reason, while, after, some errors in input dates in a wrong format that I do believe that the current format to input a date should be always repeated into display tpl or input title (displayed).

This makes the blog edition unusable in normal conditions because to edit a text we have to make horizontal scroll continuously.

Analysis : the calculation of the length of line written in text editors is always complex. Generally today there is no problem, but the system which is behind editors is very complex to take in account all display configurations.

fix sheets created directly from wiki SHEET plugin within wiki pages for managing tables visually
Spreadsheets can be created directly through wiki SHEET plugin directly within wiki pages. this allows managing big tables visually, as well as having the data ready for producing graphs, etc. (see documentation for tikisheets at doc.tw.o, if needed)

However, when you create a sheet through a call to the SHEET plugin from the wiki page itself, there are 3 issues which need to be fixed:
# you need to know the id you want to assign it to,
# after that, tiki-sheets.php doesn't list it (even if the sheet is really created, and you can import data to it, and show it at the wiki pages, etc.).
# the sheet is not shown with the right css

Even if we have wysiwyg option available, I still think that is worth improving tiki sheets usability to be used directly from wiki pages, once those 3 previous issues are fixed.
Updated on Feb. 2, 2011, using trunk (7svn)
# Steps to reproduce the first issue
## Edit a wiki page
## Use the plugin helper to create a new sheet in that page. And since it's a new sheet, it doesn't have a sheetId yet, so that you leave all fields empty in the plugin helper for the pluginsheet
++ this will add this type of code in your wiki page:
++ {CODE()}{sheet}{CODE}
## Save the wiki page
++ you will see an empty sheet shown in place at that wiki page, with the button at the bottom to allow the user to "edit it" (so far, so good)
## Once you click in the edit sheet button, you end up in some url like this one:
++ http://localhost/tiki7trunk/tiki-view_sheets.php?sheetId=&parse=edit
++ which produces a WSOD (blank page).
*** In my case, I guess that this url should have been:
+++ http://localhost/tiki7trunk/tiki-view_sheets.php?sheetId=2&parse=edit
+++ since I had only one sheet previously created, with sheetId 1, so that the next one should be 2. However, this new url is still producing WSOD for me. (tiki caches cleared, just in case, repeated this step, and same WSOD)

The expected behavior is that the user is the user would be editing a blank new sheet with the url:

and when the user saves that sheet, the new sheetId 2 exists, and the user is either sent back to the wiki page where he clicked at the button "edit sheet" (preferable option) or either sent to the corresponding tiki view sheet 2.

Images in webmail
Emails containing inline images fail to present when selected from the email inbox list. This is a problem for both jpg and png images. It does not seem to be relevant as to where the image appears in the email. I have tried with the image in the middle of the text as if the image has been sent as part of the content and at the very end as if a signature block with exactly the same result.

I rated this as a 7 as it makes the webmail feature unusable to the users of the [http://sistersafar.com|site] in question. This in turn makes the site itself, being designed to keep distant family members in touch with each other and friends, pretty much ineffective for the target audience. It does not however technically render anything but one site feature unusable so a rating higher than 7 does not feel justified.

In 6.x od dev.tiki.org tracker Bug and Wishes the "sort by date function" still crashes

Recurrent problem since 4.0. already reported, seems to had been solved, so may be it's a regression. To test.

The sort command (by clicking into header) leads to a crash.

Before we got an SQL error, now the current selection is cleaned.

__Important details :__
* not tested (again) for each column in "table header"
* not tested for various selections of tracker items
* Sure : after a selection of items (content of selection not empty normally without importance : category feature and feature requests for all), a click on date column header which runs a sort command leads to an empty page for a new search.

I am quite sure that an error still occurs into the sort SQL command, but the error is kept and a locate to new search is made.

__What I am going to do :__
* Test for the not tested various conditions (already done six month ago)
* Test on my development version 6.x with xdebug (show the requests, firebug and eclipse)
* Check the SQL request(s)
Then write here the report __

Installer in Tiki6 is not ensuring utf-8 in new db and tables (only on upgrade)
If you install a brand new Tiki6 site, and your database was created with latin1 charset (by sys admin, phpmyadmin, by whatever means), Tiki doesn't warn you at installation time that the db is using latin1.

Only when you upgrade the Tiki6 site, tiki detects that db and tables are not utf-8, and allows converting them to utf-8.

This can be reproduced easily with the TikiLiveCD 0.6, which came (from a customized Slax GNU/Linuxd distro) with an empty db called "test" with latin1 charset, that is to be used for Tiki installation.

Lack of default, when a page belongs to multiple structures
Using Tiki 6.x (proposals) and Tiki 7 (trunk)

I have a wiki page that belongs to multiple structures.

I have the "open page as structure" option enabled.

If I open the page directly, Tiki does not know which structure to use, so it opens the page __with no__ structure.

This means that the generated TOC is empty. The only way the end-user knows that the page is __supposed__ to be in a structure is by selecting a specific item from the __Structure__ drop list.

But the end-user may not have any understanding of what a "wiki structure" actually is.

There should be a way to set the default structure for a page.

Module Action Calendar : a way to activate the functions desired or desirable

I have tested and look at dev of the module Action Calendar on 6.0 and 6.x trunk.
It need to be polished.
There are some misfit.
Who read this must understand that the function where not ended for 6.0
This note is technical sometime for a good link to dev team.

The item 3650 relates that the popup which shows action buttons can't be reached.

In fact as the function is not polished the buttons are the same as module calendar, but they have not corresponding available functions.

As I test to set these popup as "sticky" it function as the main calendar. After I test various issues :
#Action link on the cell of a day -> go to show a calendar of a full week. Can display thousands of events.
#Buttons on popup goes quite nowhere

!Module Action calendar
Note that any cell is related to several events then any action must leads to a list of events,
!!What can be wished :
!!!Global action buttons (nav.tpl):
Add a button to go directly to calendar for the current span of time (day,week, month..), two buttons : calendar or list (to earn time) in the future 7.x full page calendar
!!!Action on the link of the cell (day)
Display the list of "events" (sometimes truncated into the popup as it is desirable) for __the corresponding date "day".__
!!!The list offers
* Link to the object
* Add a comment to event (first column of list)
* type of event , not already made
!!!Action on popup buttons
Any button which have action opens and operates on the list of events of the day. *The buttons can't be the same as main calendar
*As the events are system events they can't be updated neither deleted.
*The update could be to add a comment to but as it is a list... for the day it is into the list.
**the events can't be edited, but an enhancement can be to have the capability to add comment
**the events can be listed for the day (the function is not edit_item but calendar with date="date" viewmode=day and listmode=list)
**a button on the popup can activate directly the calendar view with options of time span "day, week, month" or list with same options

!Module Main calendar
Note that any cell is related to several events then any action must leads to a list of events,
!!What can be wished :
!!!Global action buttons (nav.tpl):
Add a button to go directly to calendar for the current span of time (day,week, month..), two buttons : calendar or list (to earn time) in the future 7.x full page calendar. Options : view only, view and add comment (if rights opened), edit
!!!Action on the link of the cell (day)
Display the list of "events" (sometimes truncated into the popup as it is desirable) for __the corresponding date "day".__
!!!The list offers
* Button update
* Button delete
* Button copy and edit
* Button repeat the object (daily, weakly, monthly, trimestrial, yearly, fiexed date - checked on calendar) option edit list generated after
* Link to the object
* Add a comment to event (first column of list)
* type of event , not already made, edit types (a structure only for events classification), modify type (check on structure)
!!!Action on popup buttons
Any button which have action opens and operates on the list of events of the day. The buttons can be
*Show the list (right can be only "show_calendar items" and not "edit")
*Display the list in edit mode
*As there are several event they can't be updated neither deleted directly only defined upon the list.
*Depending of opened rights the update button could be "show full list : can add comment " if right opened
Notes :
**the events can be listed for the day (the function is not edit_item but calendar with date="date" viewmode=day and listmode=list)

!For 7.x :
!!Calendar with Gantt presentation
!!Calendar content can content several types of objects with various rights.

Multiple issues with JQuery Infinite carousel
Seen in Tiki 5 and Tiki 6:

#Missing images:
The path location that Tiki generates for the Infinite carousel icons (next/previous, play/pause, etc.) is incorrect. Tiki is generating:

But the correct path is:

#Incorrect DIV height calculated
Tiki is calculating the height of the __div id="carousel" ..__ incorrectly -- the bottom 19px of all images is clipped. There needs to be an additional __19px__ added to overall height, to account for the play/pause button & padding

Tiki should close the entire __div id="carousel" ..__ within another __div__ with __overflow:hidden__ property. This way, Tiki will no longer display ''all'' images on the initial load of a page. Note, that the additional 19px will need to be added to the div's height, too, as noted in #3.

Multiple shoutboxes
There can currently only be one shoutbox to a site (at least by any research I have done). Personally, I think TikiWiki is the best poised software on the net to bring people's data back home by creating by giving the general public the ability to create their own sites instead of being data mined on the current social networking repositories. By enabling each family member to have their own shoutbox it would in a sense give each person their own "wall" feature on their own group pages.

I can see how putting in the ability to have multiple shoutboxes would also benefit company sites by giving each project team using the same TikiWiki site as their collaborative space to have their own rapid update system specific to their individual project needs.

By visitors subscribing to (watching) individual group page shoutboxes a "Twitter" like capability quickly begins to emerge. This is especially true when people begin watching each others shoutboxes this could become a platform for launching a broad feature set.

I'm sure the potential benefits wouldn't be limited to these scenarios alone.

Out of memory bug in tikidate-php5.php
__Background:__ I'm in the process of an overdue upgrade of two Tikis from version 2.2 to the new LTS version 6.x. Testing and adaptation of styles was done on XAMPP localhost under Windows and all worked fine. Problems began with installing on public server (Debian). Installation is done from shell (tar.gz and running setup.sh) and a fresh install works fine.

__Problem:__ When I use the existing database (no problems at database upgrading to 6.2 reported) then it also works fine for anonymous user. But as soon as I try to login as admin user, I get a long wait and then:

__Fatal error:__ Out of memory (allocated 110100480) (tried to allocate 157 bytes) in /home/hrusccbo/tikitest.hruschka.com/tiki-6.2/lib/init/initlib.php on line 185
''(Note: the line number 185 varies)''

In order to locate the error, I entered the following line in initlib:

171: print ("a:$errno, b:$errstr, c:$errfile, d:$errline");

The result is that Tiki starts displaying thousands of times, in an endless loop, until memory exhaustion:
a:2, b:DateTimeZone::__construct() [datetimezone.--construct]: Unknown or bad timezone (M), c:lib/tikidate-php5.php, d:182

From that I deduct that the error originates from line 182 of tikidate-php5.php

===Some other findings which might be useful:===

The last days I tried to enter dev.tiki.org and themes.tiki.org, but could not because the sites displayed exactly the same error. Yesterday I went to IRC chat and was advised to clear the cookies of my browser. After that it worked.

Looking at the cookies now, I found that "local_tz" (I assume that has to do with timezone) of my working tw_2.2 had the content "22%3A37%3A23", the cookie from tiki.org has now the content "UTC", but the cookies from working XAMPP/localhost and from the not working Debian 6.2 installation have both the content "M".

This fits to the origin of the error, as line 182 is "function setTZbyID" which calls "function convertMissingTimezone", where "M" is used in a switch/case statement.

But probably the bug is not really in the tikidate script, but where the cookies are set !!! (see below under "workaround")

Hope that helps to locate the bug and that it can be solved in 6.3. In the meantime I'll wait with migrating.

Thanks to all of you for your great work.

Suggest : Pages consultation from a pages selection, "return to list"

Referring to 5.3, when the a selection of page have been made into listpages, after the access to a page there is no else way to go back to the list with is filters than re-run listpage and set again the filter, browse the list often to view and modify the following element.

This is a great lost of operating time.

i suggest, as for the structure, to implement a button which returns to the list and into at the previous position.

Programmatically this needs to :
# - send to page-edit the parameter of the listpage we just have left
# - by the button run again listpages with options :
## - filter
## - current position into the list

This problems is accurate because of the new category features.
when the access rights to a "family of pages" are not the same, the good way is not to use a structure (not designed for this indeed) which access by category is applied to all structure elements, but the category or element access by groups or both.

For my own I use structured categories to access lists of pages. This is the right use, but this list can't at this time be use to browse the selected list.

tiki-register.php and tiki-login.php ironing
tiki-register.php has a few flows:
- the string "Passwords match" is not translated even if added to translations
- the string "Passwords don't match" is not translated even if added to translations
- the input fields (username, email, code, etc) are not aligned to the left, this is not nice

Trackerlist records can only be clicked at the values
- Imagine you have a record with ten fields, but you only have a 'n' in the last column. It is not easy to select this column.
- Since each field contains a separate field, it suggests that each brings you to some different page.
- If one link of a record is active, the record is not selected.

Unable to find images in gallery when uploaded, using only ID
Experienced with Tiki 6.1. Consider the following:

#User adds an image to a wiki page by uploading it to the File Gallery.
#After successful upload, Tiki automatically inserts the necessary code:
+{CODE()} {img fileId="99" thumb="y"... {CODE}
#At a later date, the user wants to update/replace the image. There is no way for the user to find the image in the File Gallery, if you only know the __fileId__.
Attempting to search the file gallery for the __fileID__ will ''__not__'' find the image.

Proposed solutions:
#Make the fileID searchable.
#When editing an image via the Edit Plugin, there should be a way to automatically go to the correct file gallery.
#Add an optional field in the __img__ plugin for fileId.

Update to Tiki >= 5.3 fails on Windows ("Cannot execute queries while other unbuffered queries are active")
On updating Tiki 5.2 and earlier to 6 errors occur during installation.

^Cannot execute queries while other unbuffered queries are active. Consider using PDOStatement
fetchAll(). Alternatively, if your code is only ever going to run against mysql, you may enable query buffering by setting the PDO MYSQL_ATTR_USE_BUFFERED_QUERY attribute.^

The problem is discussed [http://tiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_parentId=39458&topics_offset=5&topics_sort_mode=lastPost_desc&forumId=6|over here]

This does not happen upgrading from a clean install of 5.3 to 6.0. But it happens when upgrading from 5.0 to 6.0. The most problematic script appears to be 20100927_better_column_fix_tiki. The first query (getOne() on information_schema) seems to be the sticky unbuffered query sometimes, since the following, second query fails. I tried but couldn't find how to confirm what query is stuck. It's odd that this problem only happens in the installer. getOne() just like query() use fetchAll() so we shouldn't see this problem. Setting MYSQL_ATTR_USE_BUFFERED_QUERY doesn't seem to help. After some 10 hours of debugging I'm under the impression this is a PDO bug. This looks like http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=44081 If anyone wants to try fixing, I recommend speaking to me first. The PDO documentation is very poor, making this really difficult.
20100927_better_column_fix_tiki was introduced in 5.3.

I found upgrades would work with PDO in certain environments. I had the bug on PHP 5.2.13 but upgrading to 5.3.3 fixed. PHP 5.3 can use mysqlnd, which I suspect doesn't have this problem. The upgrade worked for me on vanilla PHP 5.3.3 or PHP 5.3.3 from EasyPHP, both with mysqlnd. I have no clue why this problem seems to only affect Windows, but I saw reports of similar problems on Debian etch, so it may not be completely Windows-specific. Anyone who experiences this problem, please report your PHP version, and if you use PHP 5.3, indicate whether you use libmysql or mysqlnd.

Usability improvements for File dialog (icon in wiki page editor)
!Problem Summary
The dialog structure for uploading a file and adding a link to it in wiki page is much better than it was, thanks to the introduction of the __File__ icon in the toolbar of the wiki editor. But it is still cumbersome and error prone. Here is the process below and the usability issues that I found at various spots.

# Click on the __File__ icon
# Pick __File Gallery/Archive__ in __Type__
# Click on __Pick a file__ link
# Click on the __Upload File__
# Click on the __Browse__ button
# Click on __Upload__ button
# Browse the file system and pick the file.
# Once the file is uploaded, click on its name.
# Click on __Insert__ button

Besides the fact that this is long, there are many places where it is misleading to the user (details later). I had to try this more than a dozen times, clicking on different items, to figure out how it works. And I had help from some experts on the mailing list!

Fortunately, there are a number of very small fixes that we could implement to address those issues. See below for a discussion of the various issues and proposed fixes.

!Issue 1: __Type__ should have a reasonable default
Currently, the type is set to empty. It really should be set to either __File Gallery/Archive__ or __Attachment__ by default. Personally, I would favour __File Gallery/Archive__, because I think it's generally a bad idea to attach files to a wiki page, because it limits your ability to link to those files from other pages. But the point is: the value should default to what users most commonly use.

In some cases, the picklist only has one option in it anyways (ex: if the feature for attaching files to wiki pages is off). In those cases, then the picklist should DEFINITELY default to that single value.

^Fix: Set the __Type__ to a sensible default... I vote for _File Gallery/Archive__^

!Issue 2: __Pick a file__ link looks more like a caption than something you can click on
I never realized that I could click on it to choose the file. Someone had to actually point that out to me. Others on the mailing list have said that they need to point this out to users all the time.

^Fix: Change the link to a button^

!Issue 3: Too easy to miss the __Upload__ button
Once you click on __pick a file__ link, you are presented with the general screen for navigating and managing the File Gallery. But at this point in time, you are only intersted in uploading or choosing a file from the gallery, and seeing this complex dialog is very disorienting. In my case, I managed to miss the fac that there was an __Upload__ button on that screen, and I thought I had mad a mistake and someone pressed the wrong button or link in the previous screen. I had to go back to the previous screen several times and click on different things, and finally come back to clicking __pick a file__, and then I saw the __Upload__ button.

^Fix: Instead of having a single __Pick a file__ link (well, button, if we implement the fix to Issue 2), we should have two buttons: __Upload__ and __Choose from Server__. Or something like that (I can't think of a good workding). The __Upload__ button will take you directly to the place you currently get to after clicking on the __Upload__ button in the File Gallery screen. The __Choose from Server__ button will still take you to the __File Gallery__ navigation and management menu.^

!Issue 4: Not clear that you have to click on the file name after uploading
In Step 8, there is nothing that tells you you need to click on the file name after you uploaded it. I went through the whole process several times and it never occured to me that I had to do this until someone from the mailing list told me.

Note that there is a message to that effec that appears if you hover the mouse over the file's name. That message really should be visible at all times, not just when you hover over the file name.

^Fix 1: Make it so you don't need to click on the file name altogether.

Fix2: If that's not possible, at least put a very prominent messages saying that the user needs to click on the file name^

!Issue 5: Insert button is not clear.
In Step 9, you are back at the original pop up, and you need to click on the __Insert__ button, otherwise the link to the uploaded file does not get inserted.

Again, I had to do the process several times before realizing I had to do this. My natural tendancy was to close the popup, either by Xing it or clicking on the __Close__ button. The result is that the file does not get inserted on the page.

I think the problem is that the two buttons at the bottom say:

__Close__ __Insert__

And you naturally tend to click on the first of these two, i.e. __Close__.

^Fix: Change the order and caption of the two buttons as follows:

__Insert link__ | __Cancel__

Also, if the user clicks on the X to close the window, the link should be inserted (in other words, __Insert link__ should be the default). The reason is that it's easier to recuperate from that error (you just need to erase the link) than to recuperate from the other error (you have to start again from the beginning, to insert the link).

Use of HTML into title and sub-title of site, not-allowed since 6.x, a way to a solution
I had tested and finally used in 5.3 HTML into the sub-tile of the Header.

This allows to comment or to have longer information and to be free of the content and look.

The 6.x version don't allows this anymore. So the title and subtitle is poor (fivealive style).

I do believe that the best way should be a table (not a frame because of HTML5) and the ability to define the content of to line (<tr>), one for title, the other for sub-title.
(then the sub-title could not be written, if long enough, under the login button... which can overlay it)

Both they could content HTML.

The style of each <tr> has the actual default value but HTML with common tags as <span> or <img> allows to build a good title.

Naturally there is a downside : The title and subtitle must be sometime used as text (to be print for example). Then we obviously discover (invent) that we have two different GUI objects :
*the title HTML block which should be displayed into the header
*the title as text

The technical solution is simple :
The syntax of an HTML title and subtitle "must" be :
<span id="site_title" title="the text title" ... {other attributes} > ... HTML content ... </span>
So it is easy to parse the content to get "text_title" and "text_subtitle".

This could be implemented for 6.1 and after into 7.x trunk

Clicking Wiki Editor tools like bold can re-apply instead of removing formatting
This isn't so much WYSIWYG as the wiki editor but see no such feature checkbox.

Anyway if you click a wiki editor button twice, like bold, I expect it to undo the action, like the WYSIWYG editor. Instead it tries to make the text doubly bold, which is apparently not possible.

Also if you use a button and drop focus from the editor, I expect the preview Ajax to update as usual, but it does not.

Wanted: default class for images added in wiki editors
Images that are added using the wiki editor (anyway the normal editor, I didn't check the wysiwyg editor yet) don't have a default class. This is the simple case of no containing box or anything added along with the image. Therefore it isn't possible for them to have a default style such as margin or border unless it is added manually by the page author. Or if it is specified by the stylesheet (.postbody img or .wikitext img, etc.) then ''all'' images in those divs get the treatment, including smileys and external link icons, etc.

I suggest adding a default class like "contentimage" to enable a default style. Page authors can always add a second class if needed.

Wiki text returned from plugn not parsed
__Tiki:__ 6.1

Wiki text returned by the SQL plugin is not translated. I used the "Quote" plugin to verify if this problem exists for all plugins returning Wiki text and the value translated as specified in the data passed.

We make fairly extensive use of the SQL plugin on our internal department site. A technique for implementing this plugin we use is to enclose the return value of a column in double parenthesis. This enables us to have a web page reference for each of the returned rows.

This technique is used in several circumstances. One is that we select from our database stored information on hundreds of servers making the server name a link to a detailed info page. The example below is used to link to project detail pages describing individual active projects.

{CODE(caption="Example SQL",wrap="0")}
concat( '((', p.project_name, '))' ) as "Project Name",
u.user_username as "Project Owner",
tdv.value as "Project Status"
projects p,
departments d,
project_departments pd,
tsi_dp_valsets tdv,
users u
where p.project_id = pd.project_id
and pd.department_id = d.dept_id
and d.dept_name = 'TSI-KPHC'
and u.user_id = p.project_owner
and tdv.ID = p.project_status
and tdv.value != 'Archived'
and tdv.value != 'Complete'
order by tdv.value;

This issue is not restricted to link specifications as bold (double underscores) no longer work when returned by SQL either.

I have rated this a "9" strictly from a personal importance perspective and not as a definition of impact to the overall Tiki project. The customers of our department rely on these returned links for information and updates.

I have been all through the Administrative areas hoping to find a feature flag to turn on wiki text parsing of plugins (before trying the above referenced "Quote test") and am also unable to find such a flag specific to the SQL plugin.

Wrong link encoding in Wysiwyg editor
When I create a link to a Wiki page, the editor changes the reference of the link until the fourth time when I edit the page, but this is not a problem. The problem occurs when the link points to a wiki that has a special character, for example - cabeçalho - which means header (in Portuguese from Brazil), since the editor corrupts the link and it crashes.

Here I have an example.

The link should point to the wiki - Projeto de Pesquisa Social: Quem somos nós ? Proeja 2010 - is corrupted by the editor and points for - Projeto+Pesquisa+Social:+Quem+somos+n%C3%83%C3%83%C3%83%C3%83%C3%83%C3%82%C2%B3s?+Proeja+2010 -

WYSIWYG_6x inserts !'s into text before any text formatted as a header, saved, then edited again
When editing or creating a page using the WYSIWYG_6x editor, setting any text as a header then saving the file works correctly, however if the page is edited again, the WYSIWYG editor inserts a ! before or sometimes after the text you decided to format as a header.

Looking at the source, it appears that it is inserting the following into the page:


Attempting to remove it by deleting the ! in the WYSIWYG editor just results in it showing up again, either immediately after saving or on the next edit of the page. This results in people not wanting to use the header feature or finding other workarounds such as larger font size.
