BANNER in siteheader crashes tikiwiki 1.9.11
Installing BANNER in siteheader crashes with error message about unrecognised BANNER

The same banner works prefectly with 2.0 RC2 and RC4

Banner display setting: To and From Time loads incorrectly
When configuring a banner, it is possible to set a to- and from-time when the banner can be displayed. Setting and saving these times work OK.
The times are stored as specified (assumed local time for server)

However, when the settings are reloaded/reviewed, the times seems to auto-adjust the times, based on an assumption that the times are stored in UTC.
I am in the GMT+2 timezone, thus both times are incremented by 2 hours when they are reloaded.

Unless this error is detected and manually corrected before re-saving, the time settings will be altered. This will occur every time.

Banner stats are unreliable
Tested on 1 site.

Banner stats are unreliable. Generally, they count 3 times each click. Needs to be verified on another site.

Banner: Impressions are not counted properly
One one site, (needs to be checked elsewhere), the number of impressions seems to be triple the actual number.

Please comment if banners are reliable for you.

Banner: timezone shifting problem on editing of banners
Normally, we want banners from 0h00 to 23h59 and this works well.

However, on banner edit, 3 hours are added (depends on server).

This is a new problem introduced by a fix a few months ago. Tiki 1.10 has much better handling of timezones.

Workaround: On each edit, make sure to change back to 0h00 to 23h59

Banners don't work
Banners show as just an empty box when displayed. Images don't work, text doesn't work, nothing will get it to display anything but an empty box.

{banner zone=XXXXX} doesn't work either.

Banners: having a way to point to a custom tpl or to a wiki page
Suggested on IRC:
(4:39:16 PM) mose: maybe what is missing in banners feature is a way to point to a custom tpl


This would give more flexibility. It would be easy to add Javascript, or very special banners or using variables (language, etc)

If a wiki page, we could easily delegate management and maintain edit history.

Generate valid RSS feeds from wiki pages, useful for ad serving and remote management of content, like a site footer
This is an RSS feed:
http://sourceforge.net/export/rss2_projsummary.php?group_id=64258


It's not the traditional way of using RSS but it can be very useful :-) It permits us to get up to date info (Ex.: number of devs, number of downloads, etc.) from SourceForge, using RSS. We can then publish on http://info.tikiwiki.org/



This idea could be used for serving ads.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_serving

This is also in the same idea as:
http://dev.tikiwiki.org/Connect
http://tikiwiki.org/Viral+Tiki

Two immediate uses
# Manage the footer of all *.tikiwiki.org sites from one place
# Permit to push news & calls to action (Current version of Tiki, vote for Tiki in an Award, new release, etc)

Image will not work in Banner
Version 5.3.3

When setting up a banner, "text" works fine. When switching to use of an image for a banner,the image uploads directly to some location other than the file directory I have chosen and am using for images. I cannot tell where it is going. It is not going to the chosen file directory for images.

When putting in {banner zone='xxxx'} and the banner has an image for content, just the word "Banner" appears on the page. Apparently it cannot find the image, or load it.

Also, it is odd that it forms a link, because no linking has been given. According to the documentation, when the link field is empty, no linking will occur.

Banner cache is not cleared when using 'Clear all Tiki caches' feature
TikiWiki 6.6

When using banners, and you update the banner table manually, the changes are not visible because the banners are cached. (so far so good).

However when clicking 'Clear all tiki caches' the banner cache (which resides in the /temp dir) is not cleared.

Need a way to insert SCRIPTS into banner code
Many banner advertisers use a javascript for banner adverting. Currently, there is no way to add a JS-based banner.

Siteheader ad banner "activate"/"publish" checkboxes emptied by Look & Feel setting change
The first problem (maybe local) is that the ad checkboxes on tiki-admin.php?page=ads tend to not stay checked. Please confirm if this is true for other users.

The bigger problem (on two servers): when I switch the logo from left to right on the Look & Feel admin page, the ad checkboxes on tiki-admin.php?page=ads get emptied. Maybe any update on Look & Feel resets the ad activate and publish checkboxes to empty; I didn't check.

Also, on the ads and banners admin page, only the bottom "Apply" button works, for me.

Site header banner ad configuration worked before it was split off as a separate page, afaik. Maybe a bug was introduced by the move to its own page.

Theme and Tools for MediaWiki migration
Maybe some of you will think of this as a "marketinhg" thing, but let's face it : for most users on the Web "wiki" is synonym with "MediaWiki-powered sites that look like wikipedia".

What I propose is to create the theme and tools to facilitate migration of mediawiki powered sites to tikiwiki the (very) easy way : fill a form during install that points to the Mediawiki database, and extract all the info to automagically populate the Tiki. I'm willing to participate, but I do not feel I have the required knowledge at this moment to be able to do something useful in the coding part : I know little to no PHP or MySQL stuff, I even wasn't able to install Tiki properly here (shame on me).

Using Flash with Tiki banners
Tiki banners can now handle images, text, html and external image. To use Flash, one must make an html file (with the Flash) and call that via an iframe.

Adding native support to upload and use a Flash file is next step.

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.
