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.

'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?

"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

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.

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.

add watch calendar event in tiki-user_watches.php
I know that calendars can be watched by users through links like:


But this link doesn't work like this other one:

I mean, Anonymous users clicking on the first link (calendar watch event, as it is right now), would not be offered any message to login or register first.

This is to make more easy for new users to know that they can subscribe by email to get info from calendars if they register to that tiki site.

after upgrade 3.1->4.0: admin sees in tiki-index.php 'Permission denied you cannot view this page'
after upgrading a ((tw:TikiLiveCD)) from 3.1 to 4.0, the user admin logs in to tilki-index.php and sees "__Permission denied you cannot view this page__"

^ admin livecd@tikiwiki.org Monday 16 de November, 2009 20:56:36 CET Assign admin to groups

All upgrade from 3.x to 4.x denies all permissions to admin

Relating to id2936 id2950 and another id lost (mine but when the author was not set always into track id data's.

It remains impossible to an admin to changed quite anything depending of admin (can create wiki, articles) but not to end any admin task.

The action as, change a user prefs etc, disconnect admin and send the ERROR Connect page __access not allowed__ so the corresponding sites are dead sites.

An installation of 3.3 or upgrade to 3.6 must be done again from database backup.

The problem is that if users has been connected between the upgrade and the necessity for admin to make some changes (I have made...) I had to manually add articles and wiki pages from sql.

We must admit that upgrade from 3.x to 3.x is impossible in some cases unknown, not yet found

I test today if an upgrade 4.2->4.3 had an effect but none.

Allow integrated search results from other Tikis (or other search sites)
It would be nice if visitors to info.tikiwiki.org could search all of the tw.o domains at once. What I envision:
1. A user goes to info.tw.o and searches for "WYSIWYG"
2. Tiki searches all of the *.tw.o domains and presents the results to the user, breaking the results by domain (e.g., all of the doc pages, dev pages, etc.)

Currently, the search results page will provide a box for users to extend their search to other tw.o domains, but (IMHO) it really needs to be automatic. See http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-searchindex.php?highlight=wysiwyg&where=pages&search=go for an example.

Maybe this could be expanded to fetch search results from other, non-Tiki search engines, too.

Automatically collapse or reposition tag cloud when displaying search results
Usability issue, but not so much a bug as feature design:

If the tag cloud is large in tiki-browse_freetags.php, search results are not immediately apparent on the screen. The user has to scroll down past the cloud to see the results, which is not necessarily obvious to new and/or less savvy users.

Ideally, the beginning of the search results should be displayed near the top of the page, but with a portion of the tag cloud still visible for further search filtering. The tag cloud could automatically collapse, with a large obvious control for expanding it again, or it could be positioned side-by-side with the results. Those are the only two solutions coming to mind.

Batch Uploading to Database Gone in 4.0 But Present in 3.3
I have a 3.3 Tiki Application with a File Gallery configured to store files in the MySQL database. It IS possible to upload zip files and unzip them during the upload. Very useful!

I'm testing a 4.0 instance of the same application, and now the "batch upload" feature does not upload and unzip *.zip files.

I noticed the following comment in the Tiki docs....

~~#f00:"Note that you can use the Batch uploads only when you don't use the database to store the content of the files!"~~

Was some functionality taken away?! I sure miss it.

If I change to storing files in a directory (instead of the DB),
will that also mean the loss of full-text search capabilities?

Call to ADONewConnection failing in plugins
I noticed that all the calls to the SQL plugin were killing my intranet website when going to version 4.x. Digging deeper I've narrowed it down to the ADONewConnection call of the wikiplugin_sql.php file. On that line of code PHP dies and I am left with a white page. I have tried playing with the call itself and even going to PDO which worked well enough to complete the page without dying, however I don't know enough about the PDO paradigm to actually retrieve data and rewriting the entire data retrieval strategy seems a bit extreme.

Upon learning of dbreport, the only other plugin I know of to also use ADONewConnection plugin, is also failing I've decided this might be an issue in the plugin engine itself which is beyond me to resolve. One black box at a time is my general approach to things and this now relates to ADO and the plugin engine.

I will continue to look at this issue, however assistance from bigger brains for PHP than my own would be a good thing.

Crash on a replication of site from Unix to Windows - and windows installation

~~#0c6:HELP, I spent 120 hours on the problem, and I am completely stopped in my Work because I can't install Tikiwiki on the development tool on windows. I could not find a way to understand why 4.1 installation seam's impossible on windows. A failure, that I could not find till know, on windows is not detected by the product.~~

Sorry for the length.

I try to install on windows to make test and developments an installation of tikiwiki 4.1 that is on a unix system (OVH provider with shared servers). So I can't have xdebug and many other facilities.
This local replication is needed to begin my participation to the dev.tikiwiki.org.

For this I have :
1- Changed the way to hold .htaccess (patch) For my apache I use the définition
AccessFileName access.htaccess
My various application are accessed via virtualhosts
this since six years.
2- Enable all needed extension for php : the lonely problem is that it not exists an adodb.dll for php 5.3.0 on windows (not found)

After I tried a manual installation :
- create mysql db with data 4.1
- create local.php

This crash on (see screen xdebug copy) the instruction in tikisession-pdo.php

But when I made the searches (this is the opportunity to go inside the product)
__I could not find the way how the instance of the class TikiDb inherit of the setAttribute method from probably Zend_Db_Statement_Pdo__
in lib\core\lib\Zend\Db\Statement\Pdo.php:411:

If the link exists I am interested in the fact to understand the structure.
If this come from the lack of the adodb.dll extension (functions and constants) this should be detected and I could not reach this execution point.

Generally may be a detection of php extension features could in the future avoid my "exploration".

I will redact when I will have solved all the problems a document about detail of a good implementation on windows.

Thank's for an answer, because I am locked till 15 days on this problem.

Trebly :

''__Nota1: __''I try new clean installation which don't functions, it crashes, after everything seems to be ended well installed the data are empty and a loop of to forms is without issue :

# because at the end we go back to the screen for validation of user and pass (second time) which calls the language form ad vitam.
The analyze shows that the POST('user') and POST('pass') are not got back into tiki-install.php and the failed installer is not run again.
Finally if I populate the data base with the data's (SQL) coming from one of the to implementations I reach the same as described upon.

Custom CSS values which overrides chosen CSS (and are kept in database to be future-proof)
I pick one of the themes included in Tiki (Codex.css for example). It is almost perfect for my needs. I would like to make a few modifications, which are not appropriate to share with the Tiki project.

A- If I edit the styles/codex.css, I will have to redo my change again at each upgrade.
B- If I duplicate styles/codex.css to styles/mycustomtheme.css, I will not be taking advantage of any future enhancements to the theme.

It is not possible to put CSS information as Custom code in Site Identity.

The other benefit is to distribute css adjustments via profiles, like:

1- Smarty doesn't like the curly brackets used in CSS. {literal} bla bla {/literal} could be used to get around this
2- It is not in <head> </head>

I jsut tested by putting the code below as Custom code in Site Identity and it works :-)
{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()}
<style type="text/css">
body { background-color: blue; }
p { color: yellow; }

Entering CSS "as-is" with curly brackets in Site Identity and having it render as internal CSS could be a solution.

or maybe a custom.css should be maintained, and cached from this data.

To reproduce:
* Log in as normal user to dev.tw.o (without admin perms) (ot test with user "xavi" if you prefer).
* report a bug/wish
* edit it in order to see the edit form
* click on the red cross to delete it
* after that, you are shown the list of tracker items, as if your tracker item was already deleted. No message indicating any problem is shown. However, the tracker item is not deleted.

dev.tw.o/tracker5: category fields are not pre-selected when editing tracker items
selection of category fields in tracker items is lost when you re-edit the item.

inserting tracker items in dev.tw.o works fine (through ((Report a bug)) and directly through [tracker5]. However, editing those bug reports seems not to be allowed as expected, because selection to the category fields is lost when you edit the tracker item again to update it, and thus, since one of them is compulsory, the changes can not be saved if you don't re-select the category checkboxes.

Discuss button on wiki page causes erroneous notifications on forum watch
One of our users reported that she was receiving watch notifications whenever she clicked the "Discuss" button for a wiki page, even though she was not posting anything in the forum topic.

The cause was a Watch on "A user posts a forum topic (forum_post_topic)" for the Wiki Page Discussion forum. (Our Tiki uses a forum for page discussion instead of page comments.)

The preferred behavior is that this type of watch would only generate a notification the ===first=== time the Discuss button is clicked for a page, when the new topic is actually created, rather than just accessed on successive clicks.

Editing tracker items fails when filtered by categories
If you filter on a category field in trackers, you cannot edit any viewed tracker items. The system returns a SQL error because filterfield is set, and filtervalue is null. If you filter on other fields, you can save, with no errors.

I have traced the problem to the calling of trklib->list_items (this holds the query that fails). This function is used to call and order the other tracker items for easy pagination of the filtered tracker items after a save.

However, the real problem is that $_REQUST['filtervalue'] and $tryfiltervalue get lost in tiki-view_tracker_item.php when the save submit action is done on the form. Other URL query parameters appear to be stored as hidden fields on save action in tiki-view_tracker_item.

For whatever reason, non-array filtervalue fields (e.g. plain text fields) are remembered and thus the pagination and call to list_items works just fine.

However, when there is an array filtervalue (like there is with category fields), then filtervalue gets lost on the save action, and the save fails on a malformed query.

Error: "A contribution is mandatory" after trying to save
When I edit and try to save a page when logged in as an administrator, I get the error "A contribution is mandatory" and it will not save. Registered users and all others cannot save edits either. We're only using the wiki feature and the files feature, so this makes it pretty useless if we can't edit it.

This error occurred in the previous version as well, but has carried over to the new version.

This apparently edited a previous report and will not allow me to change the selections. I'm now on 4x and it's a Wiki problem, not a File Gallery problem. I can't seem to submit a new report; it keeps editing an old report. So there's a problem with the Bug Report system.

external feeds don't show date any more (just bullet points) since upgrade to 4.x or 5.x (they seemed to work well in 3.x)
External feeds don't show anymore the date of the feeded content, and they used to do while in Tiki3. After upgrade to Tiki4 and Tiki5 (or with new Tiki5 installs), dates are not shown any more.

The problem might be in the Tiki providing the feeds, not the tiki getting them.

File Gallery directory field requires full path

Insert an image with editor
Critical Usability Problem With WYSIWYG Editor

Version 4.3

"Insert an Image" does properly put an image in the Web page but the editor does not preserve the "Vspace" and "Hspace" attributes in the source code. It is not possible to do spacing around an image in a Wiki page.

The editor properly shows the spacing around the image after inserting from file gallery and before preview. Looking at the source inside the editor before a preview or save shows only this example:

"{img src=/tiki-download_file.php?fileId=1&display height=211 width=200 imalign=left}"

While the editor properly shows the spacing (inside the editor), the source code is not set to save the spacing.

It is not possible to manually enter the "Vspace" and "Hspace" into the source and save or preview successfully; the "Vspace" and "Hspace" are deleted.

It looks like the source code is simply using the original Tiki text approach. This would be a deal-breaker for my users.

JavaScript Calendar Hidden in Insert New Tracker Item Screen for Tabbed Strasa Theme
JavaScript pop-up calendars get hidden behind CSS "layers" in Trackers, especially when using the tabbed view. I've noticed this problem with more than one theme (Strasa and Tikipedia). It's a shame, since the popup calendar (or date picker) is such a useful tool, and works well in the 4.0 Add Calendar Item interface.

Workaround - Turn "tabs" off when inserting a new item, or else use the date selector control (not as nice) also provided with trackers.

The hidden date picker / popup calendar occurs in the latest versions of Explorer and Firefox, so it doesn't seem to be a browser problem, but rather a stylesheet problem (?).

Language.php has strange characters codification
__Intro & Environment:__
*Italian language selected
*Tikiwiki 3.1

Many words in our Tikiwiki appears with strange characters instead of accented characters or special ones.

I looked for the /lang/it/language.php and:
*I opened it with the __vim__ on my server
*I opened it with __Notepad++__ on my notebook using various codification (utf8, ansi, UTF8 without BOM, UCS2....)

The result was that the accented words or special char words are always not matching the right codification.

For example, I find
"blog_ranking_top_active_blogs" => "blogs_classifica_blogs_pi�_attivi",
instead of
"blog_ranking_top_active_blogs" => "blogs_classifica_blogs_più_attivi",

I tried also to download the 4.1 version, the zip version and also the tar.gz one.
The result was the same.

Is this a regression bug?

Mailbox Messages: No pagination
3.0 and 3.1

When the number of messages in the mailbox exceeds the number set to display (regardless of the number set to display) no pagination tool appears so it is impossible to see the rest of the messages.

This is for read or unread messages.

It's happening on my live site, and it is also found in a fresh 3.0 installation under MAMP on my local machine.

It's a show-stopper!

__UPDATE: a clue__

So in Look n Feel=> General Layout

I turned off "Hide pagination when there is only one page"

and went back to the mailbox. Now it's showing

"page 1/1"

So it's not showing pagination tools to see more messages because it has concluded it is already showing them ALL.

So something can't count or can't subtract or has the wrong rule.

Minor changes still result in email notification
On at least two sites, running respectively 3.x and 4.x:

- jiamcatt.ourwiki.net (3.x)
- terminology.tikiwiki.org (4.x)

I noticed that if I change a wiki page and save it as a minor edit, email notifications are still being sent.

I think that this only happens when the user is part of a group for which a Group Watch has been set. When I tested on the 3.x site, that's the conclusion I had come to (this AM, UK time). But this PM (UK time), I tested on the 4.x site, and it seems that the minor edit is causing notification even if a user-defiined watch (i.e. as opposed to a group watch) is set.

BTW: This bug caused a minor incident on the JIAMCATT site. Someone did about 30 minor edits to a page that was being monitored by a large number of people, because he was a newbie and was trying to master the syntax for referencing a section inside a page. As a result, 30 notifications got sent to a hundred people, and some of them got pretty pissed off, and almost walked out on the site. One person asked to be "taken off this infernal web site".

So, if the bug can be fixed quickly, I can go back to this community and tell them that something was done to prevent that sort of problem in the future, which might diffuse the crisis.

Registering to a site : message sent to user - errors in mail structure and content

I am testing the registrations into one of the sites I develop (the first test 4.1)
The message sent to the user as various content and "structure" errors.

1- the system inserts HTML comment [<!-- TPL: mail/user_validation_mail.tpl -->]
because the option
(preference name: log_tpl) was activated
These comment are displayed into the message and placed (3 times) in not a right place.
A blank line into the mime definition is interpreted as begin of text.

2- Even the option is not used there is a blank line into mime commands so the second part of mime definition are not taken in account and appear as document text....

Join three file *.eml
*name ended "b-html_v4b.eml" which is sent with option log_tpl
*name ended "-b.eml" without option log_tpl
*name ended "-b-v5.eml" without option log_tpl with corrections integrated : mail well displayed has text:plain

This makes us unable to start normal exploitation of the site, till is not solved.
We track all messages display and check French translation.

I don't had time till know to go to the soft structure to find the error.

Scope operator to access PDO properties and methods for $Tikidb fails : execution fail wit php 3.3.1

These is a partial solution to ticket 3029 which I can't access.
I was wrong in my search of causes of the problem.

__The installation in my configuration described in 3029 don't supports the following :__

The TikiWiki sequence with tiki-setup_base and tikisession-pdo
first creates the object
$dbTiki = new PDO(......)
just after seems to extends the class by
TikiDb::set( new TikiDb_Pdo( $dbTiki ) );

Most installations are able to hold the following (tikisession:open)

and just after execute tikisession:read with this


This don't functions (probably php 3.3.1), the PDO methods and attributes can't be accessed by this mean.

The scope operator is not able to reach PDO (builtin by extension) class PDO in my context :
either windows version (improbable) and php 3.3.1
On my services provider OVH which run php 3.2.x everything functions

Zend uses interfaces and other objects.
In my opinion :
$sth must be set as new object with "PDO_Statement" properties (interface of zend and implementation)
When I implement the good properties and class I go much more further
in the execution.

But how to make function whole 4.1 with this scope operator problem ?

It should be easily reproducible on dev.tw.o.

Semantic link "alias" broken on 4.1 & still on 6.x in several sites, including doc.t.o
Semantic link "alias" broken on 4.1 for me (regression)

it shows an error page, suggesting similar page, search box, and the option to create the page (as reg. user)

However, the page name "Pendents" is defined as an alias of "pendent", as it can be seen here:

which has underneath (inside the "[[+] Fet" box):
(alias(pendents)) | (alias(Pendents))

So this looks broken to me (at least, with common settings as I have).

Reproduced in doc.t.o with http://doc.tiki.org/PluginRR (which has an alias link from http://doc.tiki.org/PluginR )
Discussed (with more details) on irc:

UPDATED: Fixed in current branches, at least (9.x, 11.x, 12.x)

Start of tikiWiki with Windows and PDO extension (Apache-php-mysql win) - DB Main Classes problem and functions calls - Makes unable to start Tikiwiki

This is a new formulation of 3029 problem after near 200 hours of test and debug.

!The problem is now precise and near solution :
I can't affirm that I wrote debug because the execution stop on another problem.
The time spend is not only on TikiWiki, a had to solved installation problems and find a bug into easyphp and addresses resolution on the server.
The problem began with 4.1 and php 5.3.0 and I upgrade to 4.2 and 5.3.2 to be sure of the problem and the available solution.

!Span of the problem :
# Definition of main classes TikiDb and TikiDb_Pdo and PDO->function execution
# Progs : tiki-db-pdo.php, tikisession-pdo.php and naturally pdo.php, tikiDb.php
# PDO extension and behavior of objects and classes

note : Because I found the nature of the problem, I don't start from the nature of the crash but the analysis, but I produce a selected track made with xdebug var_dump)

# In tiki-db-pdo.php:40 we create the Pdo object
<$dbTiki = new PDO("$db_tiki:$db_hoststring;dbname=$dbs_tiki", $user_tiki, $pass_tiki); >

# just later In tiki-db-pdo.php:49 we set the singleton of TikiDb_Pdo into TikiDb abstract class with scope operator
<TikiDb::set( new TikiDb_Pdo( $dbTiki ) ); >

# further we call In tikisession-pdo.php:28 we can find the session read
< $sth = TikiDb::get()->prepare($qry); >
This instruction generates the fatal error :
__ Fatal error: Call to undefined method TikiDb_Pdo::prepare() in D:\Trebly\Teawik-ld8-422a\lib\tikisession-pdo.php on line 28__

!Explanation and solution implemented
The reason is simple and explained by the error comment :
we try to run the prepare function which is a PDO function on a TikiDb_Pdo object which has no reason to inherit of these Pdo function even <TikiDb::get()->db->prepare> could have a meaning.

Then the solution is in what is made in ZEND lib (not yet used), create an interface to PDO into Class TikiDb_Pdo.
This functions and it is written.

! A major question
One important question is why and how the same instructions seems to be available and functions well on Linux (I have a site which runs normally with 4.1, not yet upgraded to 4.2, a to-do)

I believe that the actual solution that I have developed for 4.2 on Windows with PDO (compiled) extension, should be extended to the normal version.

As I have said before I can't confirm completely that the solution is correctly tested and free of bug because, the program have a FATAL ERROR PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY093] later on the prefs restoration I create another report for this.

Note :
the execute statement written execute() without parameter generates each time a warning message when xdebug is activated with STRICT option (default in 5.3.2) for errors handling in php, and necessarily makes the code lightly slower. I developed an enhanced error template according to the error handler which displays much more informations about the context and, into these, the parameter (title) of execute statement. This make an enhancement to find much more quickly the errors.

Store session data in database -> fix or hide option
Hello Friends,

I am not a technical person. After I installed latest version of TikiWiki using Fantastico I went to Admin Area and when I finished some modifications in Login Configuration Page I was suddenly kicked out (logged out) but even after several tries I was not able to login again.

Because of this problem I removed my site: http://hub.cc completely. I downloaded the latest version from site: www.tikiwiki.org and re-installed it using my FTP clients. But unfortunately once again faced the same problem.

I therefore request you to please check my site and guide to me how can I Debug this issue!

Many thanks and best regards

Submit new tracker mirror fails on php error function in TikiDB.php

I have changed my trackers options to Trackers mirror.

This needs to suppress old ones (just test). It as been immediate.

I tried a test, create a new tracker, define major parameters and I obtains the following error :

Fatal error: Call to a member function fetchRow() on a non-object in /homez.53/spacprot/www/teawik132/lib/core/lib/TikiDb.php on line 56.

__Do you know what can happen.__
I imagine that the $this->query(.... ) fails because of right on database. But as admin my user and passwords allows tables creation. I will try to test the same with simple test program.

I imagine (with no means to verify) that if this come from a lock of right of data base the error on the query should raise a PDO error.

Nota :
Because I still (after a lot of job)could not obtain an operational installation on Windows, I cannot debug myself or localize (using XDEBUG, PHPECLIPSE).
The problem is on an operational site running by a provider service (OVH - with php 5-2 mysql 5-4- etc...) but normally without access to debugging tools.

So I am preparing a computer running on windows for this (I have to implement installations of tikiwiki on Windows) and collaborate operationally to tikiwiki development.

Best regards

The user is redirected to a blank page with just an email address shown, even if the user didn't click anywhere
A weird bug which was showing in tiki 4.x (calendar), and nowadays, I've seen something similar using 5.x alpha at dev.tw.o:

The user is redirected to a blank page with just an email address shown, even if the user didn't click anywhere.

To reproduce:

Pass the mouse over the item saying "2 errors editing articles in tiki 3.3 ".
With no click (just passing the mouse over, using Firefox 3.6.2), you are shown a blank page with just "email@domain.org" on top.

That item corresponds to:

This is something which is also happening to a calendar in a tiki 4.x site, when the event body has some email address, it seems.

Tiki WikiFarm / Native multi-site / multi-domain handling
Use case:
*Manage many sites/domains with one Tiki installation
*"Park" all the domains on top of each other and get Tiki to send people to the right page depending on the domain.
*Common user base & permissions
*Theme control to provide different theme per section/category/page
*Could be different domain per language

*Maybe domains could be links to categories. Put a page in a category and it gets its theme from theme control center
*Modules per domain
*If on page for domain X, force/rewrite URL to that domain
For example

So if I go to:
I am redirected to

*pagename collision. Ex: domain1.com/intro = domain2.com/intro
*Single shared search engine
*Meta-tags will be shared

Also need to think about the Use Case where different workgroups want different domains. (A bit like *tikiwiki.org sites)

With new Tiki4 Workspaces, we could associate the domain as a preference.

What happens if a wiki page is in many categories, and they have different domain names. How would the priority work? Random? An order? Same idea as default group?

Tikiwiki and Wikipedia Citation Template (XML documentation data)
Various tools are able to built a structured documentation form internet exploration.
A good example is ZOTERO.
The product can get urls, html pages content, manage a hierarchical structure, set marks etc...
The product is able to export XML files with various basic patterns :
1. Zotero RDF
3. RIS
4. Refer/BibIX
5. Unqualified Dublin Core RDF
6. WikiPedia Citation templates
7. BibTeX

These structured informations can be imported to a wiki structure.
he interest of Zotero RDF (but I had not the time to the Unqualified Dublin Core RDF have the advantage of containing the structure definition the link to external url and if the html page has been captured the component html page with the elementary component has images.
This model his the closest of wiki structures.

Too the Wikipedia Citation templates is close but from the url refs;

I have not found where are the text and synthesis objectives for "import" and data shared (XML files as RDF Zotero structures), and multiwiki, in 4.x and 5.x

I am interested in participating to these developments.

tracker field "items list" is missing param to specify if o/p/c/op/pc/oc/opc (open, pending, closed)
When you use the tracker field "items list" to link (for instance) offers and demands (or gods from an inventory, etc.), the option to specify to list only the open items, for instance, is needed. If a product is out of stock, would be set as out of stock, and maybe marked as "pending", or if discontinued, marked as "closed". And it shouldn't be listed through the "items list" field.

Nowadays (2.0rc2), it's not clear to me how this could be achieved (if so).

Sometimes we need a checkbox field in a tracker to be mandatory. Like:

Upgrading makes impossible to access the wiki (see http://dev.tikiwiki.org/bug2865)

3. Import the dumped "sql33" into new sql db (lets call "sql40") through command line
4. Start the configurator of tikiwiki 4.0 and use the upgrade db feature.
5. Try to access the new tikiwiki 4.0 installation:

RESULT: Noone user can access the site. The admin also cannot access the site.

6. Try to reset the admin password:

Upload Mulitple Files Broken in 4.1 File Gallery Feature

#~~#f33:Unzip Zip Files (Batch Upload) is Broken for Windows and CentOS~~
#~~#f33:Adding Multiple files one at a time, then uploading in-batch is broken __ONLY for Windows XP__ (CentOS works).~~

System Used:

1) Windows XP
Tiki 4.0 and 4.1 (12-15-2009)
IE 8 or Mozilla FF 3

2) CentOS 5.x
Tiki 4.0 and 4.1
IE 8

In Tiki 3.x it is possible to upload multiple files at one time to any file gallery by one of two methods:

1. Keep clicking the "Add" button and add select multiple files for uploading. Then finally click the "Upload" button.

2. Select a zip file to upload, and check the "Unzip" checkbox.

~~#f00:__In Tiki 4.0/4.1 this feature is broken.__ ~~ The resulting behavior is that the upload progress-indicator (spoked-wheel animation) runs forever, and the Apache server must be restarted before the user can continue to upload any other files after the failed attempt at multiple-uploads.

~~#f00:__For purposes of data/file migration to Tiki, this is a serious issue.__~~
I'm not much of a PHP programmer, and I suspect other Tiki users are not either...so checking out the latest code from the head of a branch is probably not a great work-around (in general).

usability: after tracker creation, send the user automagically to edit fields
New users are kind of lost in the process of creating a new tracker from scratch.

Instead, it would be much easier for tiki newbies (or even for everybody?) if they were autoomagically sent to

Because it's not intuitive (from the newbie point f view) to know what to do from that interface with so many links at the moment when the new tracker has been created.
