Name Type
Dynamic Variables do not Handle Consecutive '\' Characters Properly
When entering the backslash character twice in a Dynamic Variable's content, e.g. \\servername\share, Dynamic Variables act unpredictably:
* You need to enter four '\' in order to get two '\' chars in the first occurrence of the DV. All other occurrences have all four '\'s
* If there are more than one DVs with more than one '\' chars, upon updating one DV, 1/2 of all '\' chars will be lost in all the DVs on the page. E.g.:

||DV name |Stored Text |Editable Displayed Text |Non-editable Displayed Text |Stored Text after saving ANY DV on the page.
~np~%dv1%~/np~ |\\\\server1\share |\\server1\share |\\\\server1\share |\\server1\share
~np~%dv1%~/np~ |\\\\server2\\share |\\server1\share |\\\\server1\\share |\\server2\share||

test dynamic items list per Bernard Sfez email of 24 May
In Bernard's email he recommends the following:

---
Go to https://dev.tiki.org/tracker5 Insert new item, go to "Area" select any.

---
As I'm creating this enter, after selecting Area: Main Feature, in the Drop-down for Sub-Category I'm seeing, as he said a list of meaningless catId's. (Bernard: "Check sub-category, instead of showing category name, it show catId.") As far as I know this problem exist since the rewrite of tables in v.9.x During TikiFest in Montreal in April, ca 12-14 April, Louis-Philippe fixed this problem for me in 11.x (then still Trunk). Sorry but I'm still in Africa, with expensive, and very unstable internet, so I can't check updates, but perhaps this can help someone find the solution. I'll be available for the group again, but only starting someone coming Monday, 27 May. No promises but perhaps I can find a solution then, but it will take time. olaf-michael (omstefanov)

Only the first instance of a dynamic variable in a wiki page is editable v2.2
Not sure if this is a small bug or a feature request - but now that I have used the very useful Dynamic Variable feature in a number of sites I realise that a quirk of the feature is that only the first instance of the use of an individual variable in an individual wiki page is editable.

If you use the same variable a number of times in an individual page then the 2nd and any subsequent uses are not linkable to the edit facility.

This seems a bit inconsistent and it would be much more useful if any/all instances could be used to update/change the variable.

If this is unavoidable then it would be useful to declare this in the documentation.

Closing this as its not that important any more (Geoff Aug 2013)

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.
