|13.x doc.tiki.org :: help doc links report "Page not found"||tracker item|
Add "help popup" for all lines/fields/configurable items when using Admin to set up your modules.
When setting preferences in each of the modules that Tiki supports, it would be of HUGE benefit and assistance to be able to click on a HELP ICON and get comments on what the setting or preference means and whether this should be used by you.
Advanced search help button in module search_box doesn't work
Tested in v3.1 on XP/IEv6, Vista/IEv7, Vista/Firefox. The help button (blue circle w/ question mark) next to "Advanced Search" in the module search_box does not bring up any help info. Instead, it points to the anchor #advanced_search_help on whatever page the user is viewing, but the anchor doesn't exist. IE shows an "Error on page" in the browser status bar.
Tested in XP/IEv6 with "Floating Help" UI feature on - same result. Unknown if "Floating Help" changes results in IEv7 or FF.
All help links should point to wishlist as well (only for admins)
All over Tiki, there are contextual links the relevant page on http://doc.tikiwiki.org/Keywords
This is pretty good for end users because they get access to info about the feature and the opportunity to improve it.
Now, it would be good for Tiki admins to see links to http://dev.tikiwiki.org/Keywords as well so they know what bugs have been reported and they get the opportunity to learn, share and participate.
Blue Help Circle will not drop down in IE works in Firefox
Bugs & Wish list
Full text search module needs Help
The full text search module should provide means to determine what operators work with it. Perhaps a large tooltip or a link to an "advanced search" page. Syntax for the module is [http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=FullTextSearch|here.]
Help System is not listed as feature on Tiki Tracks
Help System is not listed as a feature for Tiki Tracks. Is it the same as WebHelp? If so, then one or the other should be renamed for consistency
Help System Link on Admin::General goes to useless page
The "Help System" link on Admin::General points to non-helpful swamp on doc.tw.o
Help system: upgrade script should update to new destination on doc.tikiwiki.org
If the user didn't change the value of the destination of the help system, it should be updated to what the default value is now.
Need to hunt down what all the previous values were (ex.: http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=) and to update via sql
And for clean installs as well (of course)
However, if someone modified the default value, we don't touch.
Reminder to add a reset to default value in 3.0 (new admin panel should permit this)
Help URL's built incorrectly on tiki_admin.php pages
The URL's for the help buttons are not being built correctly. Users are unable to get help during the initial setup.
Tested on 1.10.0b1. To reproduce:
After a fresh install go to the Administration:Administration page
Click on the General icon.
Click on the help icon at the top of Administration General
The help URL will use the local host name instead of doc.tikiwiki.org
Help shows enabled on the features page (apparently enabled by default)
All pages reached through tiki-admin.php seem to have this problem
maketoc should have plugin help
No Plugin-Help when editing forum or trackers
When editing a Wiki-page and clicking on Wiki-Help there is a link to change the Help to Plugin-Help.
This link doesn't appear when editing forum or trackers..
|On tiki-listpages.php the "?" icon links to not found page on doc.tiki.org||tracker item|
Site customisation should be highlighted and All features enabled by default, empty header.tpl
a) I spent weeks testing these features one by one.
It will save time if all these features are enabled and complete with samples.
This is the approach used by Joomla and Mambo.
It also helps us learn faster.
b) The assist module is useful but asking users to read a tedious configuration as the first step will eat up too much time.
Site configuration or Look at Feel should be the first one.
It is also the most dangerous but essential.
c) Provide a clue, in the assist if possilbe, to replace a damaged header.tpl with a skeleton header.tpl

Tips about tracker plugins
Tracker plugins are great.
There should be something about them in the tips, when creating trackers.
Trackers:: field type helper
This is precisely what we would need for the trackers field type helper.
wiki help - plugin list sorting
The plugin section of the wiki help is listing the plugins aplhabetically based on their english name. When it is translated to another language the sorting remains based on the english name, it is quite confusing and looks a bit chaotic in other languages in my opinion. Is there a specific reason why the code here is written this way? If not, can this be fixed for Tiki 4? I dont know how to do it but would appreciate it :)
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.
