Article translation doesn't work.
Hi!

First: Thanks for this great project!

When you try to translate an article (by clicking on the small globe that is near the edit icon), it sends you to the wiki translation page, and content is empty, ie, it doesn't get the article's content to translate, and off course, even if it did so, the interface is not correct for article translation (it should have the same article interface, with heading and stuff).

I hasn't tried latest trunk, but bug is present on 5.1.

I tried to search for a similar bug already open (because of this forum thread: http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?forumId=13&comments_parentId=33126), but I found none, thus: I'm opening this open.

Thanks!

Articles plugin: filter by language
To filter articles by language:
{CODE()}
{ARTICLES(lang=>)}{ARTICLES}
{CODE}


Using the nifty lang & notlang as below gives more flexibility:
{CODE()}
{LANG([not]lang=>code[+code+...])}text{LANG
{CODE}

Blog local perms are not deleted if group name contains spaces or special characters
You create a blog, Assing local perms to a group which name contains an space (or special characters such as é, è, ñ, ç, ...). Then when you attempt to delete the local permission, you don't succed. The url is something like:

http://domain/tiki-objectpermissions.php?referer=http%3A%2F%2Fdomain%2Ftiki-edit_blog.php%3FblogId%3D5&action=remove&objectName=BlogNAME

And it produces the error message saying somerthing lie "there is not enough information to show this page".

Buttons for available languages
Presently the scrolling list for the available languages of a wiki page is not visually very enticing. A list of buttons for available languages would visually entice to multilingual browsing, and would mean one click less for the locutor of an available language.

Also the inclusion of "Translate" in that list can be seen as a good idea, but you could also argue that "Translate" must only be a button at the bottom of the page, because after all it is a sort of editing too.

Thus browsing by the top icons, for users with read permission, and editing through the bottom button, for users with edit permission, are better separated.

Can not change article language - page not found error
As admin I view _article_, then click on the "Multilingual globe". This brings the translation page. At the bottom I select new language and press "Change language" button. All I receive is "Page not found" error.

change_language (Users can change site language) is enabled when feature_multilingual is not
If the default install, feature_multilingual is disabled since r11761. Nevertheless, change_language (Users can change site language) is still enabled by default.
Since r17625, controlling change_language is dependent on having feature_multilingual enabled.

This creates confusion, like luciash wondering where change_language was today. It's abnormal you have to enable a feature to disable another feature.

Character substitutions in page names, search engine, usernames, etc.
Since wiki page names should avoid special characters, we'll need to think about maybe using character substitutions in page names (a instead of à, _ instead of ') and use the description field for the exact format.

Please coordinate here: ((Character substitutions))

CKEditor contentsLangDirection by page language
The multilingual/translation support is integrated with the WYSIWYG feature in a way that if you are working in an English interface, the text direction in CKEditor remains LTR even when the page being edited is defined as being in Hebrew, which is RTL. I expect that this applies to any other RTL language.

Similarly, it seems to me (though I haven't tested it thoroughly) that a user working in a Hebrew interface would get RTL behaviour in CKEditor even when editing an English page.

I can only assume that use of the English-language interface for editing Arabic pages and Arabic-language interface for English pages is common, as such combinations are certainly common where Hebrew is involved. The forcing of direction according to interface language rather than page language is likely to be a significant annoyance in all such cases.

The ideal solution would be to make the editor direction dependent on the page language's direction, and only according to the user's language if there is no page language set (there is a CKEditor option which does that - see http://docs.cksource.com/ckeditor_api/symbols/CKEDITOR.config.html#.contentsLangDirection)

Comment into forums of various languages
When Comment Into Forum is activated, pages of whatever language will be commented into the same forum.

This violates the rule according to which you should never see involuntarily the languages you don't understand, which display is pollution for you.

This will compell you to browse through numerous languages you are not interested in in order to find those you can read.

Completely multilingual Tiki not just Wiki
I wish the wonderful multilingual features that the Wiki side of
TikiWiki has were available/applied consistently throughout the Tiki package.

So, it works really well to view wiki pages in your own languages,
translate into others and keep these in sync collaboratively.

While you stay in the Wiki side of things.

As soon as you leave to use files, forums and FAQs etc. etc. multilingual is patchy at best.

I'd like to be confident that whatever feature I enable, its possible
for all content in that feature to be truly multilingual.

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.
