Every time a new object gets created (wiki page, blog entry etc) the item recieves only global permissions.
It would help a lot if the admin could define 'standard permissions' for each group for specific features.
(needs to be integrated with improvements to "permissions by category" introduced in 1.9 - which provides a coherent approach for "object" based permissions to compliment user based perms.)
To keep wiki pages inside the group, the admin would assign the read right only to that group, and a member of that group posting a new item would not have to worry about security as much.
Am not sure what to do when user is member of multiple groups... maybe she can select in a drop-down which is the one that wins, or maybe the admin determins that when creating the user?
Reccomendation: Inherit permissions. (particularly for wiki)
The default behavior for a new object should be to inherit permissions from the page it was created from (global if none). Particularly in a wiki, this would facilitate the use of "private areas" - key feature for tikiwiki as groupware so committees. groups, etc. can operate in privacy, if so desired. Whoever create the page should be able to disable this inheriting, but it should be on by default. Admins can then create private wiki spaces by customizing perms on one page (the group home page).

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://. 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:///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:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
