External Wiki: optional micro icon for link, title (mouse-over), and option to open new window
Say I need to make a link such as:
{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()}
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argument_map|Argument map]

I could use an ((doc:external wiki)) link which is like this:

{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()}
((wp:Argument map))

Even nicer would be an image (instead of {img src=img/icons/external_link.gif}) so the visitor knows he'll be sent to Wikipedia.

Also, would need:
*optional title: to explain what this site is about. (ex.: this is a sister community)
*option to open new window
these would be set centrally and you could override.

Perhaps the direction to take is to build with ((doc:plugin alias))

Feature request: record video from webcam in page or post editing
There was a question in the forum (by freeman57) about how to let users use their webcams to record a video to insert in a wiki page, etc. After checking around, I came across a plugin for Wordpress that does this, using Kultura: [http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-video-pack/]. It would be great if someone could do a Tiki version, or equivalent, of this plugin. There doesn't seem to be any installation needed in the server except for the plugin files.

Actually I think just a subset of what's in the Wordpress plugin would be needed. That plugin includes other video and audio display options along with a TinyMCE install, which wouldn't be needed for Tiki.

This would be a nice additional feature for sites and users and would tie in well with Kultura integration.

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.

Global site reference tool
This feature request is for a tool that would enable easy quoting and referencing of any content on a Tiki site, for example, to quote a forum post on a wiki page, or one blog post in another, etc.

Maybe it would be activated by clicking a switch in a module (side column), then selecting some text. Then in the referencing page, when you paste, it pastes not only the selected text but also wikiplugin syntax in which the text is the data and the url of the text's source as a parameter. The quote is displayed like a quote plugin output, and the source is displayed as a link.

The use case that started the thinking about this was a question about how to easily cite Tiki forum posts from a wiki page, without a lot of copying and pasting. Rather than hardcoding it to be forum and wiki specific, a global copy-paste site content referencing tool could be useful in other ways.

Improvements in SNARF plugin to help keeping doc.tw.o and xxx.tw.o sites documentation in sync.
Suggestion taken from doc.tw.o authors forum:

Re: Styles and Themes
en: Dm 19 de Jun, 2007[05:06] respon
> Use this thread to discuss the page:: ((doc:Styles and Themes))

About the new content here, I think it might be better not to duplicate the themes.tw.o information at this site. As I understand it, the information at each Tiki site (tw.o, doc.tw.o, etc.) should be unique and just linked to if it needs to be available to users at another site. When putting themes.tw.o together, some content was moved from tikiwiki.org to there, to avoid having it in two places.

Pages duplicated at different sites will become out of sync when one side is updated. If we want to actually display the information at more than one site, is it possible to have an intertiki include plugin so updates are automatic?

I believe the focus of doc.tw.o is how to use the standard Tiki package. That means info on extending the default Tiki would be at mods.tw.o, themes.tw.o, etc.

Re: Styles and Themes
en: Dv 22 de Jun, 2007[11:52] Editar respon
Hi Gary,

I agree. My my reason to add a copy of documentation work in themes.tw.o is that is included in next pdf file produced from doc.tw.o Documentation structure with the rest of documentation (there was a big lack of information in current documentation site about the state of the art of themes and styles available in Tiki community...)

A solution could be using SNARF plugin, but it's not available at doc.tw.o right now, and some coders don't like to allow snarf splugin to be available for registered users, since the regex param can be dangerous to allow control of your tiki site to others...)

So the best solution "could be" (from my point of view) having a modified version of SNARF plugin like this:

1. allowing registered users to call it (and snarf'ed content viewable by anonymous), but having the regex param restricted to editors or admins (through adding a new perm tiki_p_snarf_regex or similar, assignable to some groups and off by default for registered).
2. having a new optional param to avoid getting lateral columns for tiki sites. (maybe allow avoiding header and footer from content snarfed from tiki sites, also?)

This way, content could be evolving in the source sites, and being automatically updated at view time in doc.tw.o.

But we need help from benevolent coders to make this happen...

Btw, current documentation is (only) at:

And an example of usage [http://gclub.ub.es/tiki-pagehistory.php?page=prova&preview=5|here], showing the problems when snarfing tiki sites like doc.tw.o with left column...

HTML Purifier removes lots of html tags

The HTML Purifier feature, when enabled, seems to clean really too much the HTML tags.
* when used with Allow HTML feature and there are some html codes on the page
* when used with Allow HTML feature and some html codes are encapsulated with PluginHTML
It is impossible for exemple to use tags such as <script>, <form>, <input type>
The only case where the HTML Purifier feature was not problematic was:
Allow HTML disabled + HTML Purifier enabled + html code encapsuled in PluginHTML

I finally disabled HTML Purifier, and I didn't have any problem anymore with Allow HTML enabled and/or with PluginHTML.

The problem with HTML Purifier can be easily reproduced in a wiki page by inserting any HTML code for a form, and/or by inserting some javascript parts.

Plugin WantedPages not functioing for v6.7 without WikiWords being enabled
Since upgrading from v4.3 to v6.7 the WantedPages plugin is no longer functioning for us.

The documentation for WantedPages at [http://doc.tiki.org/PluginWantedPages] has a note "Best Results - for best results, enable the WikiWordsPlugin, I found that if this plugin is not enabled, several desired page links will be recorded in the 'tiki_links' table, but not displayed in the list result of this plugin."

I've tested our site and did see good output from WantedPages when configuration option WikiWords at Admin -> Wiki -> Features was temporarily enabled.

We did not have this option enabled on our v4.3 wiki and Wanted Pages worked. Because our Genealogy One Name Study site [http://thereevesproject.org/data/HomePage_Wiki] contains community contributed transcripts from old wills, deeds etc, enabling WikiWords is not a valid option for us since these old documents often contain CaMelCase words which we want accurately transcribed and we would not want automatically generated wiki links created for those words.

This may also be related to an existing issue [http://dev.tiki.org/item2675] but I don't think its exactly the same.

Shouldn't the ability to produce a full and valid list of Wanted Pages be independent of other wiki features being enabled or disabled?

Thanks in anticipation,

Tables of Contents (maketoc) can be broken when headings call plugins (such as ANAME and FOOTNOTE)
Calling plugins in headings in pages where maketoc is used can cause breakage. For example, this happens when calling the ANAME or FOOTNOTE plugins.

Although Tiki generates anchors for all headings automatically, I find using ANAME is a great way of creating manageable and easily memorable Anchors for otherwise unwieldy headings
If a heading within a tiki page is coded as follows
{CODE(caption="1. Tiki Source Code snippet" wrap=1)}
!! Fourth and Even More Forgetful Heading{ANAME()}Quick4{ANAME}
{CODE}then Tiki generates the following HTML code
{CODE(caption="2. Generated HTML snippet" wrap=1)}
<h3 class="showhide_heading" id="Fourth_and_Even_More_Forgetful_Heading"> Fourth and Even More Forgetful Heading<a id="Quick4"></a></h3>
{CODE}which can be exploited by
{CODE(caption="3. Tiki Source Code snippet" wrap=1)}
{ALINK(aname=Quick4)}Link to Fourth Heading by its Quick4 Anchor{ALINK}
{CODE}All the above works flawlessly.

However, add MAKETOC to the page above the source line where ANAME is last used and it breaks the ANAME anchor(s). For this example, the maketoc is restricted to level 2 headings only as ~np~{maketoc levels="2"}~/np~ which makes the generated HTML a little more compact.
Tiki generates the following HTML in response to the inclusion of maketoc
{CODE(caption="Generated HTML for maketoc snippet 3" wrap=1)}
<ul><li><a href='#First_Level_Two_Heading' class='link'> First Level Two Heading</a>
</li><li><a href='#Second_Long_and_Equally_Unmemorable_Heading' class='link'> Second Long and Equally Unmemorable Heading</a>
</li><li><a href='#Third_Painfully_Difficult_Heading' class='link'> Third Painfully Difficult Heading</a>
</li><li><a href='#Fourth_and_Even_More_Forgetful_Heading' class='link'> Fourth and Even More Forgetful Heading<a id="Quick4"></a></a>
</li><li><a href='#Fifth_Long_and_Not_Very_Memorable_Heading' class='link'> Fifth Long and Not Very Memorable Heading</a>
</li></ul></li></ul><!--toc--></div><br />
{CODE}Note how the entry for the Fourth Paragraph has the anchor "Quick4" associated with it. The HTML code generated for the Fourth Paragraph heading remains identical.

The effect of this is that the tiki anchor Quick4 is now incorrectly linked to the TOC entry, being the first instance of HTML ANCHOR within the HTML file.

If the MAKETOC plugin is included below the ANAME, then the ANAME works as intended, since that is the first occurrence of the generated HTML ANCHOR statement.

I have a couple of test pages which illustrate this issue, if they are of any use in your testing.

! Effect on FOOTNOTE
Calling FOOTNOTE returns an HTML A element with an id, so using that same identifier twice causes invalid HTML. Additionally, since browsers favor the first element using the identifier in such cases, the TOC's instance wins if ~np~{maketoc}~/np~ precedes headings, which is not what we want.

! Cause
Plugin calls are executed in parse_first(). (Calls to plugins in "html" format are replaced by alphanumeric fingerprints.) After, parse_data_process_maketoc() is called and expands "~np~{maketoc}~/np~" to headings, so that each plugin call in a heading in the TOC has its result (or fingerprint) twice in the source. (After, replace_preparse() replaces fingerprints with the result of plugin functions (stored during parse_first's execution).)

This issue happens because maketoc therefore causes a plugin call's result to be repeated in the TOC (instead of possibly executed again specifically for TOC-s), which has 2 problems:
* plugins don't expect their output included twice in the page, so some (such as ANAME) may use HTML's id attribute in a manner incompatible with maketoc, causing invalid HTML
* plugins don't expect their output to be included in an HTML A element, so some (such as FOOTNOTE) for example generate links themselves, again causing invalid HTML

PluginGroup breaks PluginCode v6.7 & dev.tiki.org
! GROUP Plugin breaks CODE Plugin

Affects both v6.7 and this site. Worked OK on v4.3

{CODE(caption="1. Code outside Group" wrap=1)}{GROUP(groups=>Registered|Admins, notgroups=Editors)}some content{ELSE}other content{GROUP}{CODE}

Now add a ~np~{GROUP(groups=>Registered)}~/np~ include the same code snippet and close out the ~np~{GROUP}~/np~. Start of CODE within GROUP

{CODE(caption="2. Code inside Group" wrap=1)}{GROUP(groups=>Registered|Admins, notgroups=Editors)}some content{ELSE}other content{GROUP}{CODE}

End of CODE within GROUP. On v6.7 the code box is displayed and the code snippet is truncated at the start of the Else statement fro a registered user. On this site, the code box is not displayed and the code is truncated at the same point for a registered user.

For an anonymous user, on both versions, there is no code box and the user see ~np~"other content{GROUP}{CODE} "~/np~

Repeating the code snippet again outside of the restricting Group statement works
{CODE(caption="3. Code outside Group" wrap=1)}{GROUP(groups=>Registered|Admins, notgroups=Editors)}some content{ELSE}other content{GROUP}{CODE}.

The code example is lifted from [http://doc.tiki.org/PluginGroup] with a caption statement added.

Plugin Redirect Improvement

i found it annoying that you cannot redirect to an anchor or that if you use sefurl you you will still be redirected to a tiki-index.php site - so i wrote a small bugfix you can find in the attachment.

When using field names with text for group titles, only the last part of the string is used. For example
GROUP [project_name] "AAA [project_name] ZZZ":H1
If the project name is "upgrade system", the group title should be "AAA upgrade system ZZZ" Instead I get "ZZZ"
Using: GROUP [project_name] "AAA [project_name]":H1 I get "upgrade system"

It looks like the parser that is separating text literals from [field names] is discarding all but the last one.

Plugin Approval - plugin contains {{user}} => approval required for each user
A plugin requires approval. The fingerprint of the plugin is recorded, and if it is already approved, another user can use the plugin (in other words can display the page which contains the plugin).

But, if the plugin contains the fragment "/{/{user/}/}", for example
~np~{SQL(db="LOPC_XF")} SELECT `Date`, `Subject`, `From` FROM vwMessages WHERE `To` IS NULL OR `To`="/{/{user/}/}" {SQL}~/np~

then the plugin needs to be approved for each user individually.
NB - I had to put extra slashes in the above fragments to stop my username being substituted!

My guess is that the username is being substituted BEFORE the fingerprint is evaluated, which means that there is a different fingerprint for each user.

I consider that this is a bug, and that the fingerprint should be evaluated BEFORE the username is substituted, thereby allowing the plugin to be approved just once.

It ought to be a one-line fix - swap round the order of two actions - but I haven't been able to work out where in the code this fix is needed.

Unescaped '\e' in lib/equation/class.latexrender.php
I couldn't get the equation plugin to work. Tracked it down to a '\end{document}' latex command that should be '\\end{document}' since PHP saw the '\e' as an escape.

The problem is around line 189 in lib/equation/class.latexrender.php.

Suggest that all strings that are written to the latex file should have lead with a '\\' within the 'wrap_formula' function, even though the only line that was giving me a problem was the '\end...'.

Tiki exchange of document with others marked up languages and project management
For future versions 11 ? 12 ?


There are several main marked up languages that we know well.

I think that it will be useful to be able to exchange (import, export) documents with other selected marked up languages.

!!I particularly think to two categories :

!!!1- The task and documents managers used by development tools : Eclipse-Mylin Aptana environment and Bugzilla

Remark :
About this category, I redact documents using textile to describe the developments integrated into projects and bugzilla.
This because I have near fifty elementary project developed since 4.0, stabilized at 8.3 and that I am preparing for 10.x. (They remain for most of them available and someones must be adapted - galleries particularly)

!!!2- The wikies
The problem is to exchange data with users of main wiki.

The need is to use the large capabilities of tikiwiki to hold projects management and documentation. But as it is not specialized it cannot be directly used.

!!There are several ways, this is completely opened :
1- Be compatible i/O with textile which is very closed from basic tiki marked up language. This for basic articles.
2- Develop a plugin using tikiwiki as marked up language for Mylin
3- Look farther with a full XSL XSL-Fo (note that with eclipse all marked up supported languages can be exported as XSL-

!!On the way, proposal
1- First : list of major marked up languages for wiki and task managers
2- Links import export existing from one to another
3- Choose the optimum
Aim :
- Prepare use of tikiwiki in project management
- Be compatible with environments as Eclipse to with other project management tools

- Tiki provides a lot of coherent and very useful tools to manage the content of projects (documents and detailed task management, studies) and groupware life and management which is the core of project management (the classical tools for planning are only in my mind a little part). __But it cannot be connected with specialized existing tools and information systems in various businesses. The problem and aim is to prune efficiently tikiwiki into these organizations.

Tiki SMARTY Plugin no longer works with 'eval' option
Since Tiki10 the Tiki SMARTY Plugin, using the 'eval' option to simply display a smarty variable, no longer works because the underpinning smarty function.eval.php is no longer part of the Tiki distribution - the SMARTY Plugin code checks for the availability of function.eval.php in either lib/smarty/libs/plugins/ or the lib/smarty_tiki/ folders and gives an error message "Incorrect parameter"  if it is not found. Its removal is probably due to the move Smarty 3  but it is not clear whether there is Smarty 3 version of eval available. The Tiki 9 version of function.eval.php does not work in 10/11/trunk (gives fatal errors) so this doesn't give us a 'quick fix'.  

Solution needed to be able to 'eval' and display any smarty variable type not just strings

maketoc needs backlinks from headings to TOC, heading formatting options, outline numbering, etc.
A small collection of related issues with maketoc:

^{maketoc} -=Maketoc issues=-^
!!! ''TOC and heading type sizes''
* This is an issue that seems to crop up repeatedly on tw.o. Users would like to be able to easily control type size of both the TOC itself and headings created by maketoc. Type size for both seems to be theme-dependent now, with many themes using very large type size for headings, some with a type size for TOC entries that is too small for users with only slight vision loss. It would be a Good Thing if TOC and heading type sizes could easily be set globally, per object type, and by category, with switches available to vary those settings on a per page or object basis.
!!! TOC and heading character attributes
* It would help reduce inconsisistencies in TOC and heading character attributes (as in this tracker item) if the attributes could be set globally, per object type, and by category, with TOC switches available to vary those settings on a per page or object basis. However, the ability to manipulate emphasis within a single TOC/heading entry should be retained, so that for example, a single word could be italicized in a TOC/heading entry.
!!! Vertical linespacing between headings and text
* Under some themes, vertical linespacing between text and headings is too much for taste, or as in the theme affecting this tracker item, too small for taste. This is another setting that should be unleashed from the themes and made easily selectable by a Tiki admin through global, category, and object type settings, with switches for per page or object variation.
!!! ''Backlinks from headings.''
* Links from the TOC to headings are now 1-way. For larger pages, maketoc would be much more user friendly for those viewing pages if clicking on a heading would take you back to the TOC.
!!! Outline numbering.
* TOC formatting and heading formatting would be friendlier to the eye if both could be assigned numbering schemes such as 1., 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.2 or I., A., 1., a., II, etc. Settings might be implemented as described for ''TOC and heading formatting.'' If developed, this might be implemented for lists as well.
!!! Headings indentation.
* Many power users in the word processing and outliners worlds expect headings to inherit the indentations of the corresponding TOC entry. This would help break up the visual clutter that happens when many headings are close together vertically as a result of short text elements separating them, as in this tracker item (but it is far worse when there are subtopics and corresponding subheadings). Settings might be implemented as described for ''TOC and heading formatting.''
!!! Text indentation
* Many people used to word processors' outlining or stand-alone outliners expect text to be left-indented one tab more than its heading. Relevant settings might be implemented as described for ''TOC and heading formatting.''
!!! Associated features
* Display current settings in editor, change current settings from editor. Make changes to settings made from the editor apply only to the object being edited, so that users do not accidentally apply per object settings to other objects. Admins should have option to disable deviations from admin-set settings.
* maketoc is commonly used in conjunction with list features. Any changes to maketoc should not unintentionally impact the list feature and ''vice versa.''
* Need to ensure that all enhancements suggested render correctly when Tiki objects are exported as PDF.
!!! Future options
* Future options might be kept open by maintaining compatability between Tiki objects containing maketoc elements and various formats used by outliners such as OPML, XOXO, OML, or OpenDocument XML. (See corresponding Wikipedia articles.) E.g., it might be feasible at some point to directly export an outline file to Tiki where it is imported as a wiki or blog page and ''vice versa.''
