Depending on the Wiki server I use (it works on my home pc but not on the main server I maintain) old office documents (i.e. .doc, .xls, .ppt) are uploaded with mime-type application/vnd.ms-office. Instead they should have the mime-type application/msword for .doc, application/vnd.ms-excel for .xls and application/vnd.ms-powerpoint for .ppt. Note that the new formats (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) are set correctly.
The reason this is annoying (for me) is because I wanted to setup indexing of binary file content for searching. The search is based on the mime-type and with mime-type application/vnd.ms-office there is no easy way to assign it a binary-to-text-converter. If however the files had the correct mime-types I could assign the corresponding conversion program for each mime-type...
Again it would be nice if there was an option to fix mime-types based on their extension. If it works without that: fine! But I read at several places that Fileinfo extension is not really reliable. It would be nice if there was an option/program to make sure that all mime-types are set according to a Tiki-Wiki standard (independant of the web server used). It would also be nice if it could correct all existing files. Example:
I uploaded some files before the mime-type fix. They all have the type application/zip. After the mime-type fix the files upload with the correct mime-type but I still have the existing application/zip files that I now have to search and fix manually by reuploading...
All in all I think it would provide a nice tool for users that have issues with mime-types...

Unable to connect to show2.tiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
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.tiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tiki.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.tiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://jjermann-11519-4280.show2.tiki.org. 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://jjermann-11519-4280.show2.tiki.org/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.tiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http://jjermann-11519-4280.show2.tiki.org/snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
