"TermA TermB" searches should be "termA AND termB" not "termA OR termB."
This is the default behavior in search engines like Google

{QUOTE(replyto=BillMac)}
I have found that, if I want to find something on tw.o sites, I should disregard TW's search feature and use Dogpile to look things up. The TW search capability is so weak that it is almost "a missing feature." At the very least, "TermA TermB" searches should be "termA AND termB" not "termA OR termB." The plus/minus markers are fine if you're in the know, but they don't work well either. Using the category/group filters renders a whole different set of answers; not GOOD answers, just different. Without those filters, unauthorized users see parts of pages they are not supposed to see at all. Not a missing feature, a broken feature.

Gosh, I hate to be so negative.

1-click access to be able to do certain actions (view a page, edit a page, edit user tracker, etc)
Sometimes, we want people to participate to one wiki page, to access their user tracker to update personal information or access a ((workspace))

Right now, we need to

#create a user
#create a group
#assign user to the group
#give permissions to group ( in general or for a specific item)
#inform this person, typically by email, on how to access this page


Instead, I would want to
#add an email
#pick the permissions this person has
#any limitations (works x times, or for x days/weeks)
#an optional message

And the system should send a 1-click login email (an email with a link in it which is unique / very difficult to guess).

Whoever clicks that link
*Would be authenticated with the appropriate permissions and according to the limitations.

Some stats for CVS and SVN activity :: looking for a volunteer to host stats server and maintain app
Once upon a time, we had http://sourceforge.net/projects/cvsmonitor/ running on cvs.tikiwiki.org It was taken offline because it needed 4 gigs of RAM to run (!)

This provided some fun and useful stats about CVS activity. It would be nice to have something like this again.

There are some nice demos of what we could have.
http://statcvs.sourceforge.net/
http://statsvn.sourceforge.net/

We could have stats.tikiwiki.org to aggregate all stats from the TikiWiki community.

Any volunteers?

Admin>Login>User defaults or Admin>Groups: Ability to Subscribe new users to specific Tiki objects
It would be lovely to set some new user defaults at
* Admin (home) > Login > User defaults, and/or
* Admin > Groups > (Edit a single group)

The ability to Subscribe/watch/monitor new users in the site or to that specific group, to specific Tiki objects.

Which tiki objects?: I would say, in this order:
# specific forums
# specific blogs
# specific calendars
# specific newsletters (ML: we can already subscribe groups to newsletters)
# specific wiki pages
# specific structures
# specific trackers
# specific categories
# new articles

This is specially useful for new users of the site, where they don't know yet how to subscribe to specific areas, etc. Very needed for educational scenarios, but I can see many other places where new users are a bit lost for some time while they learn how to use the Tiki site.

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.

allow seing username in user tracker at registration time, step 2 (filling user tracker item)
I've set up a user tracker at registration time on tw.o, when TwCOmmunity group is chosen between the two listed right now at registration time.
http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-register.php

This tracker mainily requests selecting a checkbox to indicate that the user understands and will follow the rules and guidelines of TW Community, etc.

I've set up a user field at that tracker, so that we can see when each users decided to join TW Community by selecting that checkbox. And while the compulsory checkbox is not acting as compulsory (due to bug), which users did accept and which ones didn't accept.

Announcements: There should be an easier way for ppl to stay up to date
Currently, an administrator of a Tikiwiki installation has to hunt for upgrades, updates, and security related information of his installation. It is often cumbersome and sometimes dangerous, think of the delay in fixing a crucial vulnerability, it has happened elsewhere before. It might also be nice to know that ppl are using current and feature complete software.

Backlinks between trackers and wiki pages (and maybe forums)
In a tracker item, we often refer to wiki pages. From those wiki pages, we should be able to see the trackers in the backlinks.

Better support for external search technologies like Sphinx, Lucene (Solr), Google Site Search, etc.
Tiki has internal ((doc:search)). It is fully integrated, checks permissions, and works on shared server, etc.

However, in some contexts, better support for external search technologies would be useful.

Better way to track referrals from Powered by TikiWiki link
TikiWiki.org gets a lots of referral links from other sites that have the "Powered by TikiWiki" footer enabled. It would be great if we could take advantage of this.

I propose that the referring site's URL should be appended to the link, so that we could create (if desired) custom landing pages for incoming links from high-traffic sites (such as the FireFox support site). I envision the incoming list to be something like:

http://www.tikiwiki.org/powered+support.mozilla.org

Then on the wiki page "powered+support.mozilla.org" we could "sell" Tiki, explain why it was chosen to power that particular site, specific features, etc. In the .htaccess we could have a fallback page (simply "powered" to collect all other referrals that do not have a custom page.

Character substitutions in page names, search engine, usernames, etc.
Since wiki page names should avoid special characters, we'll need to think about maybe using character substitutions in page names (a instead of à, _ instead of ') and use the description field for the exact format.

Check & report broken links
*.Tiki.org sites have a large number of external links. It would be nice to have a tool to check all the links and to report on status. Possibly this could be related to the cacheing feature.

Custom javascript: a future-proof way to handle
Tiki has a lot of features. But sometime, we have to hack it up with various things that we can't share back to the project.

So we want to modify Tiki, yet, keep upgrades easy.

It is already possible to add custom language strings.
It is possible to override Smarty .tpl files with our own
It will soon be possible to add custom CSS strings


It would be nice to have this for javascript as well.

A custom.js somewhere. If it can be kept in the database, it makes site migration and backup even easier

Or it could be in styles/*/custom.js


It would be nice to have the option of putting towards the top or towards the bottom. Maybe Site Identity custom areas already permit this?

Dead Video Links and Errors - e.g., Videos Not Accessible
Hey Guys - I'm new to tikiwiki and have been trying to access the movies on this page -> http://tikiwiki.org/TikiMovies BUT most of the ones referencing USA point to an expired account and the ones mentioning Europe generate an error saying i don't have permission (even when logged in) ..??..

e.g., in the section "Preliminary_Settings", the USA link resolves to this -> http://esc45.midphase.com/suspended.page/ even though the link is coded for this address -> http://www.teluguvaariki.com/sri-addons/tikiwiki_videos/Wiki ... and when i hack the url to just the root domain, i get the same error and suspect this user's account is DOA ... i should note that i tried this a week or so ago and got the same response hence delayed sending this thinking it might clear up by now ..??..

and then when i click on "Editig a wiki page (Europe)" i get error - ie., "You do not have permission to use this feature" ... that link shows as -> http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-listmovies.php?movie=Wiki.swf&action=Display

the same thing happens with the other videos in other sections like "Editing a wiki page", "Image Galleries", "Articles", "FAQs", etc ... the only video link that does work is the 24 minute intro with David Lankes - which is excellent by the way :>)

accordingly, please advise ... i would really like to watch these videos to get up to speed as i'm already having numerous problems ... a) i was able to install okay but the images in the gallery won't upload, or when they do appear to upload, i get a blank screen and see no images ... b) i can't get the secure login link to work with my dedicated server that shares a SSL cert across domains ... thus i installed tikiwiki on avantigroup.com/tiki but for the https i need to make a url callout that is https://secure.cooltea.org/avantigroup.com/tiki but tikiwiki won't let me do this from admin control panel and forces https://avantigroup.com ... ugh ... sure, i could go in and hack the template but this kind of defeats the smarty template approach but i digress ...

thanks in advance for your attention to this matter and on positive side, it does look like you have a lot going for your project and i look forward to diving in further ... to be continued ... cordially, chuck scott

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.
