In the early days of TikiWiki, we used a bunch of modules (last_modified_wiki_pages, last_articles, Last this, Last that, etc.) to show recent changes to visitors. We ended up with many modules and it was cluttered.
All this became a lot better once the "Since your last visit" module came around to adding all the features. As a bonus, it checks permissions and shows the information since the user's last login. Very sweet.
Now, I am hoping to get to the same result for the many edit/input boxes.
In version 3.0, the quick_edit module checks (with Ajax) for names of existing wiki pages to edit. This avoids duplication. Great stuff. Wikipedia does something similar when you are searching for a page name.
I almost always have the search box on.
However, I also add "search page name" because the general search engine may not return the page I am looking for as the search result.
Here is an idea:
A new module which combines three modules:
See top right of http://moinmo.in/ for an example.
The action buttons are grayed out until text is entered in the text box. -> Very nice
Button should be WYSIWYCA
Alternatively, we could combine search page name and search text, and in the search results, we would first show pages names, and then, search text. This involves more work, but could be better for the end user UI.
If we make the contents of the drop down easy to customise or at the very least document how to add to it. For example the CRM function could add items to the drop down for "Contacts" and "Accounts", webmail could add "Mail Messages" and so on.
I do agree the wikipage create/edit module should be included in the top right search function.I think this is an example of where considering the future openness of the solution would be very important - MatWho

Unable to connect to show2.tikiwiki.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.tikiwiki.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.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.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.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.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.tikiwiki.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
