Annotations: should have lost edit protection
On UI.tikiwiki.org, I can add a few annotations to some images, but if I forget to click "Save changes to annotation", I will lose my annotations.
I'd like to see some sort of an "autosave". That way when you're engaged in editing a really lengthy page, it will save itself periodically. For those of us that have flaky internet connections, this would be a huge boon. My edits wouldn't necessarily be lost if my internet connection goes pouf for a few minutes.
Browser session expired when you click the save button: how to avoid?
[cjh] When a user's session times out while they are composing a message, give them a special login screen which displays the message and allows them to log in again to resume their message with all data intact.
[jan] Show timeout warning if session is about to expire.
disable or dealy auto logout
I keep on getting logout from admin although I am still trying to edit.
Either the time is too short, less than 5 minutes, or the activity detection isn't working properly.
Keep form data after back button (when CAPTCHA typo / session expired)
If you're editing a page and you fail the CAPTCHA or your session expires, your whole edit is lost. Most users expect their browser to have saved the form data, many would know enough to log back in then hit the back button to get back to the form (or at least, hit "back" and copy the data for later pasting after login). This does not work - after a "back" the form is empty!
I'm ranking this bug as priority 7 because it is very serious - data loss and angry users. I think the solution is trivial, too: see below.
login timeout during "contact us" drops message, no error message
If the session times out during use of the "contact us" form, and the anon user doesn't have perms to use the form, the message is simply dropped and no error message is displayed. (Even if you had the error message, the cache is set wrong, so that you have to retype the message, but that's another bug I posted a few days ago, with a nice link to how Drupal fixed it).
misleading error message on saving a wiki page after session time-out
If I timeout a session, it tells men:
"You have mistyped the anti-bot verification code; please try again."
It should be something else.
reduce losts on forums posts and trackers due to session expired (similar solution as in wiki?)
Session expiration is producing some losts on forum posts (in a similar way it was happening on wiki edits...). That solution by ricks99 was very smart on wiki edits. Could it be added also (or similar behavior) to forum posts?
update: Do the same on trackers!!! (show some popup if you are going to loose your session on that site)
I had lost that information because I my session (apparently) expired... (maybe there was a conflict of cookies with the ones on other 1.9.9 tiki sites I was loging in and working in right now)...
Warning message when moving away from an edit box (by clicking "back" or clicking an email link)
The problem: Say I am multi-tasking.
1- I start editing a wiki page
2- I check my thunderbird email.
3- I click a link in my email
4- That link could take over my browser and I lose what I was editing. Not fun.
This is what we need:
And that solution also works when you are clicking a link in an email. (not just back button)
other causes of ((doc:lost edit)) are listed in documentation.
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.
