can't install tiki 4.0, whereas tiki 3.3 ok with no problem. what's missing at the server side?
I installed a tiki3.3 on a server ( pangea.org ) with no remarkable issues, and the tikis seem to work fine:

However, I attempted to install a spare tiki4.0 for testing on the same server, and I can't install it:

I guess the server doesn't have pdo installed. I added the line in local.php to force tiki to use adodb instead (copied from tw.o forums, message from sylvie). With this change I can bo a bit further, but I cannot finish the installation proces. After the sql are run, I'm sent to the authentication page of tiki-install.php, instead of to the step of locking the installer and proceeding to tiki.

I went to the tiki-index.php then. and i could see it, and changed password for admin. But I can't login after that step neither with admin admin or with new admin pass..

PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY093] - when reloading a session (after database transfer SQL from Linux to Windows, with no direct relation to)

This happens in the same context as my others reports.

The database has been saved in SQL and loaded with upgraded versions of mysql, php 5.3.2.
There is in my opinion no relation with the context.

During start the current session prefs contain the query launch the previous current session.

A fatal error occurs in tikisession-pdo.php on line 44 function write statement <$sth->execute();>

PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY093]: Invalid parameter number: no parameters were bound in D:\Trebly\Teawik-ld8-422a\lib\tikisession-pdo.php on line 44

The var_dump($qry) in "prepare" function (see my interface in Class TikiDb_Pdo) gives (extract)

public 'queryString' => string 'update sessions set data='need_reload_prefs|b:0;serialized_prefs|a:9:{i:0;s:27:"feature....''

The problem comes from the fact that into the session->data you can find the HOMEPAGE article "title" which is, in this case (French):

''__s:46:"Page d'accueil spécifique des administrateurs";__''

so the " ' " not escaped generates the crash of the request.

_getGalleryChildrenIds{List,Tree} does not work correctly in php 5.2.x
Not all galleries are listed (for example when uploading a file).

The problem is (IMO):
#$allIds is given as reference
#foreach go through the array (with an internal iterator)
#in next recursion step an other foreach is called (but with the same $allIds-object)
#the iterator reaches the end of the array and the loop goes a recursion step back
#the "outer" forach continues, but the iterator of $allIds is at the end of the array
#no other item is checked, if one of the inner recursion steps reach the end of the array

'next page' link in forum threads doesn't list additional comments
Sometimes we have forum topics with a large number of comments. Let's say the default settings allow to display only the first 20 comments on the first page and provides a "next page" link to the following 20 comments.

But this link doesn't work correctly, there aren't any comments displayed on page 2 (only the initial posting).

I tried this behaviour on the tikiwiki demo page, too ... it's the same bug in the demo.

How can I correct this?

"Prevent automatic/robot registration:" interferes with OpenID
Problem noticed here:

{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()}
I'm trying to log in with my OpenID. I don't have a wiki-translation.com account yet.

After validating my OpenID, I'm taken to a Tiki page that prompts me to create a new account on wiki-translation.com to associate with my OpenID. I enter a username and password, but then get the following error:

Wrong registration code

"Submitted by" at dev.tw.o/tracker5 forgets username after 2nd edit => user can't edit his items.
To reproduce:
* As a user with non admin rights insert a tracker item to dev.tw.o/tracker5
* edit it again, and change something (add some text to a text areas, etc.) And save
* you are not able to edit that item any more because the "Submitted by" field has lost the record.
* edit that item as a user with admin rights, adn manually provide again the username of the poster.
* the poster can edit it one more time. But after that, he loses the ability again.

[tikiwiki4] Tikiwiki-importer causes apache segfault on Debian Etch/lenny 64bit
Uploading a Mediawiki-XML-Dump created by Mediwikis dumpBackup.php leads to an empty page and an apache segfault on debian etch 64bit.

From /var/log/messages

{CODE()}apache2[3658]: segfault at 7fff3f74cef8 ip 7f3837b9d2f7 sp 7fff3f74ce00 error 6 in libpcre.so.3.12.0[7f3837b8e000+25000]{CODE}

File is beeing uploaded correctly in /tmp, upload to File Galleries works correctly.
changed the following values in


upload_max_filesize = 128M
max_execution_time = 600
max_input_time = 600
memory_limit = 32M (also tried 64M,128M,256M)

Timeout 600

Running Debian Etch amd64 all packages actual version of the distri.

Ways to reproduce:
1.) create a XML-Dump from Mediawiki via {CODE()}php dumpBackup.php --full --contents > dump.xml{CODE}
2.) use tikiwiki-importer via ->admin->tikiwiki-importer
3.) Upload in 1. created xml-dump

Neither changing export settings of ~np~ dumpBackup.php --full or --current with or without --content ~/np~ nor changing import options in tikiwiki-importer changes outcome.

-Upgraded to tikiwiki4, upgraded to debian stable (lenny) as suggested
Problem still exists:

$prefs.language does not work properly?
This is related to the Custom Site Header section of Look & Feel on our Web site. We put a top navigation bar which is expected to be showin in different languages depending on the visitor's language (look at http://www.daav.cn/cms/tiki-list_file_gallery.php ). The code in Custom Site Header is like this:

<div style=...>
{if $prefs.language eq "cn"}
<li>link1 in Chinese</li>
<li>linkN in Chinese</li>
{elseif $prefs.language eq "fr"}
<li>link1 in French</li>
<li>linkN in French</li>
{elseif $prefs.language eq "de"}
<li>link1 in German</li>
<li>linkN in German</li>
<li>link1 in English</li>
<li>linkN in English</li>

however, it seems the top navigation bar is always shown in Chinese even when I set the default browser language to English only. At that time, our php-based language detector works correctly to identify the user/browser language as English (example: our homepage at http://www.daav.cn/ ) but tikiwiki remains in Chinese unchanged.

Is there anything wrong with the code or it's just because my Windows XP is in Chinese? Then how to get around this in Tikiwiki? What language do you get on the linked page that I included above?

Thanks for any hints.

4.0: changing newsletter editor from wysiwyg to normal produces blank page
I created a test newsletter on a new tiki 4.x (using recent svn, similar to tiki4rc1)

* Switched editor to wysiwyg
* copied some content from this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_R._Ehrlich (from the title "Paul R. Ehrlich" until the title "other activites" (so that, it's including also a few images available on the internet, in case it matters)
* cliked on the switch editor button (to go back to a normal editor showing wiki syntax)
* a blank page is produced, after 10-15 seconds.

4.0: editing tiki sheets at tw.o don't keep the changes made
editing tiki sheets at tw.o don't keep the changes made (no error nor warning message shown; everything apparently ok). But no sign of the changes made, not in the sheet, nor in the history of tiki sheet.


I did edit it as user "xavi", add some info the cell A2, save, and no record of the changes.
Looking at the tiki sheet history, nothing is shown either about the edit.

See a related post of users reporting other problems with tw.o sheets since tiki 4.0 (I couldn't reproduce their problem, though).

5.0rc2: content duplicated at saving time (seems related to usage of hidden headings)
This has happened to me seldom on different tikis (3.x, 4.x and nowadadays, even 5x!) on different servers, and it's very annoying for users or admins, since after you make a simple edit to some page, for some reason, it gets the content duplicated after saving your small edit. And it can be repeated 3 times, if you edit again, 4 time if edit again,. ..... I could only avoid it by rollbaking to the last version whithout those duplications.

Confirmed that this bug (related to the collapsible headings) is not fixed either yet in 5.0rc2. It seems to show up in some pages were collapsible headings; I mean:



Reproduced recently here:

I just editted the
{rss id=1}

to change it for
{rss id=1:2}

as far as I remember, after a few previews and changes in the content before saving.

Then, the content was saved twice.

See the diff above and the resulting page:

This site is using tiki5.0rc2 , no ajax, and wysiwyg editor enabled, even if not used on that page.

I can provide admin access to that site to any coder willing to check this issue.

Initially reported as a comment to this other similar bug report:

A SheetID is required shown when attempting to edit a sheet with jquery.sheet
Very similar to this bug that was fixed in Version 5:

Unfortunately, our host does not support version 5 yet, so I am dead in the water unless this same issue gets addressed in version 4.1

Basically, you can create sheets, but whenever you try to edit them, simply clicking on any of the links (Insert, Remove, etc.) causes a redirect to an error page stating: "A SheetId is required."

I haven't been able to import simple spreadsheets either, but that's another issue.

I would love if the Directory feature allowed one to enter an address. If using the directory feature for resources, this would then allow one to search for "local" resources based upon the address. e.g. Within 5 miles, 10 miles, 25 miles, etc.

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.
