Description

Using Tiki 6.0, I have encountered the following problems with staging and approval process:

  • Staging copies are not deleted upon approval, when the Delete staging pages at approval option is enabled.
  • Impossible to create a brand new wiki page when using staging and approval.
  • If a staged edit is rejected, Tiki still approves the page.

Solution
Correct the issues and return staging and approval feature.
Workaround
  1. Staging copies are not deleted upon approval, when the Delete staging pages at approval option is enabled.


verified - this is an issue. Why not just leave the staging pages around? That was the way the feature was when it was first written.

    • Because then the pages appear in the page list and search results. Also, with these "invalid" pages still in the staging category, it is impossible to get an accurate number of pages that are awaiting approval.

      • this is now fixed in r31552/3

  1. Impossible to create a brand new wiki page when using staging and approval.


This works for me. What do you mean impossible to create a brand new wiki page? The normal procedure to create a page to staging is simply to put it manually into the Approved category. The next time someone tries to edit it, it will create a staging page. If you first put the page in the staging page, you get a warning saying that you have to manually move the page to the approved category to "approve" it for the 1st time.

  • I was using a early 6.0x/trunk. I'll retest with 6.1

  • Do you mean the issue I fixed in r31555/6?


  1. If a staged edit is rejected, Tiki still approves the page


This is an issue - the rejection functionality is broken. When was this added? Modify the UI to hide all the rejection functionality for now. If you want to reject an edit, just revert the changes of the staging page, and approve again.

    • If by "revert" you mean rollback, that is a very mess workaround, as it requires a different set of permissions :-(

      • I did some forensics and the "rejection feature" actually never worked before. And yes, by revert I did mean roll back unfortunately, so you have to give the approvers rollback perms on the staging category. Otherwise they have to manually adjust the edit.

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.
