Description

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:
search_wiki_page
search_new
quick_edit

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


See top-right search box at:
http://www.ohloh.net/projects/tikiwiki
http://www.wikicreole.org/



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.

I think the existing layout for the search top right in TW is fundamentally good. A text box, then a drop-down then a button. Why because the drop down is more future proof than any of the layouts from the other sites you reference.


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

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.
