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:

Non-parsed wiki feature (np) doesn't work correctly anymore in plugins

After upgrading my web site from tiki 7.0 to 7.2, I've noticed that the non-parsed wiki feature in the wiki pages is not working correctly anymore.
Indeed, from the tests I've done, it seems that in case of multiple use of the non-parsed wiki feature on the same line, only the last one is taken into account.

For exemple, for the following wiki text, only the second ~np~--css~/np~ is taken into account, the first one not so the text is striked through.

***use the ~np~--css~/np~ option (ex: ~np~--css~/np~ test)


Ticket update:

Note that the problem occurs mainly in fancytables.
I've enabled "Allow HTML" for the problematic pages. That also corrected the problem with non-parsed wiki syntax. (:eek:)

5.0RC1 - wiki Editing option "check orthography" ->em error : table "babl_words_fr" missing

Remark : The editing current page seems to crash if to many changes by cut are made (my page lost).

Change of option "check orthography" lead to system error when you save the page :

Admin Cannot Validate New Users
I had tested this successfully in version 3.3, but now with the upgrade to version 4.0 it does not seem to work. Here are the steps to recreate the issue:

1. Set up a TikiWiki so that users need to be validated by an Admin prior to actually logging in.

2. Register as a new user and get the following message:

Your account request has been stored and will be activated by the admin as soon as possible.
You'll receive email notification once your account is activated.
Please do not attempt to login until you receive the email notification.

3. Log in as 'admin' and navigate to Users page of admin tools. Push the round green checkmark graphic which has a hover display that says "Validate user: junkman". It sends me to this URL:


On that page the site returns a simple dialog box that says "Invalid username or password". Who's username & password? The Admin's?

At this point it wants to redirect me to the home page and I cannot get these new users validated.

AJAX auto-refresh of preview, options: new window or HTMLdiff
This is an alternative to full WYSIWYG.

Wiki parser does some things. To get Javascript WYSIWYG, you would have to rewrite and maintain in javascript.

It re-uses existing features and has less chance of What you Saw Was Not What You Got.

Clicking Preview is a great way to see what you will get. But it's slow and it makes you loose your cursor position.

How about having a button to open a second browser window which refresh every 5 seconds (configurable) the content of the wiki edit box?

Lots of people now have large screens so they could put this side-by-side (or however they want it)

With the option HTMLdiff, you could in quasi real time not just see what you will get, but also see the colored diff. (cool!) So before you save, you know what you are about to delete.

The switch-theme module appears to work without error but when the page refreshes, the theme hasn't changed.

I'm not sure of the revision when this started, but anon can change theme in my install of exported files dated Oct. 3 (approximately r21960), but by Oct. 6 in my updated trunk (approximately r22000), it's no longer possible.

Apostrophe in Username breaks Tiki
A user registered with an apostroph ' in their username (e.g. "Tes't") will not be able to use some feature of TikiWiki.

For example:
They will be able to select a forum, but after that, all that is displayed is the name of the forum, the "new topic" and "list forum" buttons (depending on permissions, of course), and the breadcrumb forum-navigation. The rest of the page (tiki-view_forum.php?forumid=X) is blank, no header/footer or any menus are displayed.

This __is__ dependant on the rights/permissions of the user in question, SubAdmins and Admins will see the full, expected forum page, regardless of apostrophes in their name (at least with my config, YMMV).

Another problem exists in regards to all JavaScript that uses the name of the user, for example the "tiki-my_tiki.php" page of the user, were JavaScript is used to expand Tabs (e.g. clicking "My Infos" will not work). This is due to JS using ' as string-delimeters, and not escaping any ' within the users name.


May be that the sole cause of all the problems lies within the JS-string-delimeter, but I'm no expert on the workings of TikiWiki, and the forum page breaks rather spectacularly when compared to the user profile page, which just doesn't work as expected.

Article translation doesn't work.

First: Thanks for this great project!

When you try to translate an article (by clicking on the small globe that is near the edit icon), it sends you to the wiki translation page, and content is empty, ie, it doesn't get the article's content to translate, and off course, even if it did so, the interface is not correct for article translation (it should have the same article interface, with heading and stuff).

I hasn't tried latest trunk, but bug is present on 5.1.

I tried to search for a similar bug already open (because of this forum thread: http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?forumId=13&comments_parentId=33126), but I found none, thus: I'm opening this open.

Automatically fill in field when creating new links
Some users don't want to understand the difference between "Page Name" and Link when creating an internal link.

This attached patch makes the Page Name field automatically fill in whenever the Link field is changed. The patch was made against tw 4.1.

I think it should be up for debate if both these fields are necessary. Many users of the WYSIWYG feature may be new to the concept of creating links. Less is simpler, and I vote for removing one of these fields.

P.S. Sorry about spamming the mailinglist with this request. Next time I will only submit patch here.

Cannot modify user in tiki-adminusers
We recently upgraded from Tiki-4.X to Tiki-5.X. We are running Tiki-5.3.

There seems to be a bug when trying to modify a user under the administration page (tiki-adminusers.php). When trying to click on a user, one is asked to confirm (which is a new workflow) and then taken to the Edit User page. However, when one tries to modify something (e.g. password, email address), you are asked to confirm again, but it never completes.

Here is a set of detailed steps to reproduce the problem:
# Go to admin users (tiki-adminusers.php)
# Click on user "demo"
# Click "Click here to confirm your action"
# Change email address from demo@demo.com to demo@demo.org
# Click "Save"
# Click "Click here to confirm your action"
* Nothing happens. The page address is "tiki-adminusers.php#", but it never changes from the confirm action page. "Go Back" does not work, but "Return to Home Page" does.

enhancing spam fight and protection: from multiple comments to banning multiple ips with minimum clicks
This improvement in Tiki would be very welcome. After spammers add noise to your site (in one day, 10 comments to different places in your tiki from 10 different ip's!), it would be nice if there was the chance that the tiki admin can ban all those 10 ip's with a minimum number of clicks (besides removing many spam comments at once, which can be done already).

This is some possible way to add if (from the interface point of view):

{img src=img122}

Self explicative?
User selects multiple checkboxes, and clicks on some button below which sends all that information (those ip's from those comments) to fill admin banning data (storing the data already for the 10 ip's at once).
Alternatively, one by one, prefilling the interface one by one.

File button in CKEditor WYSIWYG not working for IE 8
This bug is seen by our IE 8 clients. We are running Tiki 6.2 (clean install), on a Windows 2003 Server, Apache 2.2.16 w SSL, PHP 5.3.3, remote MySQL 5 database.

When our users are editing in the CKEditor WYSIWYG and try the File option in the toolbar there is a Javascript error for lib/jquery_tiki/tiki-jquery.js at line 808 char 4. What is happening after the error is thrown is that no new window is opened (as expected) but the File selection fields are now under the WYSIWYG Editor. This wouldnt be an issue, but there is no OK button to select the file so our users can not like to a file in the File Gallery.

If I try using the File option in FF then it opens a new window and I can select the file just fine.

Since IE is our corp standard our users need to be able to add files using that browser. Also, they had no problem in Tiki 5.x but that was a different WYSIWYG system.

Forums list refuses to show latest entries; comments to opening posts are not accesible.

* Apache 2.2.17
* mySQL 5.1.58
* PHP 5.3.8
* Fedora Linux 14
* The forum list doesn't show the latest entries any more, although even anonymous users have rights to view the forum postings.
+ In particular, anonymous user are globally granted the permission __tiki_p_forum_read__. Nothing was changed in the permissions before the forum list stopped displaying latest entries.
+ Yet the only user who is presented with a forum list containing the latest entries is the installation's admin.
* Also, when visting the topics list of some forum, users are presented a list of the latest entries in that forum (below the list of threads), but when clicking on the links in the list of latest entries, they're taken to thread pages which miss every message except the message which started the respective thread.
+ This seems to show that the bug described here is not caused by wrongly granted permissions, because if anonymous users had no permission to read forum posts they would not even see the list of latest entries below a forum's topics list.
* Recently before the bug was noted, the comment feature (for wiki pages), the freetags feature, and the rating feature were activated, but they were not activate precisly before the forums list stopped working, so the issue may be caused by some finer grained change than simply activating some additional feature.
+ Could the issue possibly be related to freetagging single forum postings?
* After removing all object permissions for every single forum and resetting them, clearing caches, removing freetags from every forum posting, and removing unused freetags, the bug remains.

Tiki-Log sort by ID broken
in debug mode (eg. when debugging ldap logins) many log entries are created at the same time so sorting by time is not sufficient to get the entries in their real order. Sorting by ID is better then.

Unfortunately sorting by ID leads to an unexpected result.

Looking at the code the problem can be fixed easily: The problem is that two tables are being joined (actionlog and actionlog_conf) and sorting by ID leads to sorting by actionlog_conf.id instead of actionlog.actionID.

Both needs to be fixed - in the SQL query the table for sorting must be added in the sort statement, in the template the columnname must be changed from Id to ActionId.

See patch.

Calendar (TW6.7) month view does not render correctly in IE8, shows different calendar months in IE8 than in other major browsers
The calendar in TW6.7 does not render correctly in IE8. It shows two months worth of dates instead of the expected single month when in month view. Week view and day view render correctly in IE8, though.

Also, amazingly, the same install of TW6.7 shows the dates of the month of March when viewed with IE8 and April (the current month) when viewed in IE9 and other major standards compliant browsers.

PluginShowpages broken v6.7, 8.x and 9.x
Have just upgraded from 4.3 to 6.7 and find Plugin Showpages is no longer producing output.

Looked at [http://doc.tiki.org/PluginShowpages] for inspiration and notice that the examples there do not seem to be functioning.

Suspect plugin Listpages now has --equivalent-- similar functionality. --but we have at least one other broken plugin (WantedPages), so want to ask if there is a wider issue here, please?--

Was using ~np~{SHOWPAGES(find=>FAQ_ display=>desc) /}~/np~ but I don't see how to simply display the page description with ListPages.

--Also is there an easy way to find all the pages within our wiki where ShowPages has been used so I can change them to Listpages??--



Updated 08May12. The issue with WantedPages is now felt to be a separate issue and I'll open a new ticket for that.

Have also now found new to v6 Mass Search & Replace tool within Wiki Admin which is great.

Tiki SMARTY Plugin no longer works with 'eval' option
Since Tiki10 the Tiki SMARTY Plugin, using the 'eval' option to simply display a smarty variable, no longer works because the underpinning smarty function.eval.php is no longer part of the Tiki distribution - the SMARTY Plugin code checks for the availability of function.eval.php in either lib/smarty/libs/plugins/ or the lib/smarty_tiki/ folders and gives an error message "Incorrect parameter"  if it is not found. Its removal is probably due to the move Smarty 3  but it is not clear whether there is Smarty 3 version of eval available. The Tiki 9 version of function.eval.php does not work in 10/11/trunk (gives fatal errors) so this doesn't give us a 'quick fix'.  

Solution needed to be able to 'eval' and display any smarty variable type not just strings

LDAP auth does not really connect to LDAP in order to authenticate (only does it on the first login)
Hello all.

Almost by chance I noticed a behavior which seems wrong regarding the LDAP authentication on TikiWiki 2.0. I'm not sure if it was already present in 1.9.11 but I don't think so. We migrated last week.

Regarding the TW configuration:

- authentication method is "Tiki+PEAR::Auth"
- users cannot register and cannot change password
- "Create user if not in Tiki?" is on
- "Create user if not in Auth?" is off
- "Just use Tiki auth for admin?" is on
- The LDAP auth configuration paramters are correct, the auth itself works well, as it worked in 1.9.11. When TW connects to the LDAP server (OpenLDAP 2.1.30) the authentication works as expected.

This means that a Tiki account is created when LDAP users login for the first time. As expected, in presence of such a user, TW connects to LDAP, authenticates, creates Tiki account and logs the user in (I have some doubts in this last item though). However, when users log in again after this, I would expect that authentication is still delegated completely to the LDAP and is not done through Tiki. Instead, I have confirmed by looking at my LDAP logs that when TW finds a Tiki account, it authenticates the user through Tiki and never connects to the LDAP. This is not the expected behavior, because it means that passwords are being stored on the TW database and actually used for authentication. As a consequence, when a user changes his password on the LDAP, this is not "seen" by TW.

I'm pretty sure this is not the intended behavior also because if I go to Admin Users, both the "edit user" and the "add user" boxes show the following:

"No password is required
Tikiwiki is configured to delegate the password managment to LDAP through PEAR Auth."

And actually, the "edit user" box also says "Warning: changing the username will require the user to change his password" which is a contradiction since the password should be managed by LDAP and my TW is configured to disallow users from being able to change their passwords.

tracker item
LDAP authentication should use LDAPv3 (or at least have configurable support for it)
LDAPv2 is obsolete, and the use of LDAPv3 is now standard practice. In fact, the [http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/822.html|latest releases of OpenLDAP don't even support LDAPv2 properly anymore]. However, PHP's ldap_connect() and PEAR::Auth [http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-software/200204/msg00046.html|default to LDAPv2].

The patch to use LDAPv3 is attached. It shouldn't be difficult to make the LDAP protocol version a configurable preference.

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.

Missing Permissions assignment feature for Newsletters
Contrary to TikiWiki documentation (and contrary to TikiWiki common sense) it is NOT possible in a 3.0 wiki (specifically http://jiamcatt.ourwiki.net) to assign any permissions to Newsletters. This means that NO ONE, other than Admins can even see the list of Newsletters, to say nothing of viewing past newsletters (the archives). This is unacceptable – and contrary to TikiWiki documentation.

JIAMCATT is the community of IT-oriented managers of language (translation and interpretation) services of major International organizations and European multilateral bodies. After a slow start about a year ago this community has now agreed to try to use a TikiWiki-based system. Within the past month (since several of the TikiWiki team participated in the JIAMCATT annual meeting in Ottawa, Canada early May 2009) close to 200 users have joined up.
One key aspect of the work of JIAMCATT are Working Groups. One of these has just started work. It’s tools include wiki pages in the two working languages (En + Fr), a discussion forum (consisting already of 13 topics), and – last but NOT least – a Newsletter to keep everyone abreast of developments. This feature, it now turns out doesn’t work in a very bad way: NO ONE, other than Admins can even see the list of Newsletters, to say nothing of viewing past newsletters (the archives). This is unacceptable – and contrary to TikiWiki documentation.

I expect this should be a simple fix for a TikiWiki insider (the feature existed at the time the documentation was written); albeit impossible for someone not intimate with the insides of this system.

Screen shots are attached. The first – now shows as the last – called “ButtonsAvail-inJiamcatt-ourwiki-net-Newsletter-admin.gif” shows the buttons seen by an Admin user when trying to do “Admin Newsletters”. The second, called “MissingButton-from-doc-tikiwiki-org.gif” shows the buttons in doc.tikiwiki.org in the http://doc.tikiwiki.org/Newsletters section in the http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Newsletter+Admin&bl=y page, under the segment titled “Changing Existing Newsletters”. The third screen shows you what a non-Admin user who should have access to view newsletters and archives of this Working Group, sees (file: “Empty list of newsletters for (nonAdmin) WG members.gif”).

Unless someone can provide a fix quickly, this group will abandon TikiWiki as its working tool.

Modules: if a feature is turned off, it should be hidden or somehow filtered + other ideas
Tiki 1.9.8 ships with 94 modules. (excellent)

Need a "module manager"

Module should come with a screenshot or preview.

A page listing all modules with descriptions and parameters- grouped by feature.

currently, the "user modules" and "assigned modules" titles are very non-intuitive. Should say "custom modules" and "active modules"

However, all modules are listed at all times. Module listing should check for features which are activated. It would be easier on new Tiki admins. For example, if articles are deactivated, don't show me last_articles in tiki-admin_modules.php

Admin modules does not display titles of available modules or provide easy method for selecting unused modules, such as with a listbox. The missing information is not available unless a Tiki admin has system admin permissions.

Also, all possible parameters for the current module should be listed (or picked from a drop-down)

Once a page has been assigned a language there is no option to unassign the language
Once a language has been selected for a page there is no way to set it back to its original state with no language associated with it.

I think it is preferable to have a link on the top of the page only if there is an available translation for the page. Regardless, it is bad practice to allow a user to change something with no way of returning that something to its original state

RSS feed broken by backslash if tw in root of subdomain
If Tikiwiki 1.9.4 or 1.9.5 is installed in the wwwroot of a "real" subdomain that resides on its own (win)server (not an alias to a subfolder under the main-domain), then rsslib.php inserts an additional backslash after the domain-name.

Links of rss-feed then look like: ~~#FF0000: sub.domain.com\/tiki... ~~ and RSS feed gets obviously broken.

As a quick-fix for my site I resolved this in the file rsslib.php by deleting the string:
~~#FF0000: ~np~ .dirname( $urlarray["path"] ) ~/np~ ~~
in the variables:
~~#FF0000: $home, $img, $read, $cssStyleSheet, and $xslStyleSheet ~~

S5: A Simple Standards-Based Slide Show System
Tiki has a basic feature to generate slides from wiki page data. This permits to prepare slides collaboratively and makes them highly available/searchable/accessible.

However, the feature is not very exciting.

1- I do not want to rely on an external service to distribute my
slides. I want to put on my TikiWiki-powered sites. And I want them to
be searchable & accessible. An export to Flash is not ideal.

2- I want something standards-based to make sure I can use when I am
not using my computer (like at FOSDEM). Sure, Regis did an amazing
presentation at the last TikiFest, made with Keynote. But now, how to
share, mix and re-use?

3- I want a way to collaborate (when preparing) & share slide
information in an easier fashion.
a) I have done dozens of presentations. The collaborative process
using desktop tools is very inefficient. I remember a long night in a
hotel room in Tunis where we where collaborating over Skype to
fine-tune a presentation.

4- As Dogfood, I think these slides could help to
A) Make nicer tutorials/documentation
B) Promotional material on info.tikiwiki.org

5- Finally, I want something much nicer than what we have now. The
quality/design/features of S5 reloaded has nothing to be shy about
compared to Desktop apps:

Some goodies I look forward to using:
A- A second browser window which shows me a timer and some notes.
B- A special syntax to handle handouts.

6- Some of the concepts (ex.: image resizing depending on current
browser size) could be useful for Tiki in general.

Here is a proof of concept of
Wiki page:

Tiki Installer Security Precaution on Windows installing in document root
Installer is broken on 4.1 in Windows 2008 R2 with the environment described below. At least two of us have exactly the same problem, so the issue is not local to us.

At the bottom is someone else's description as taken off the Installer forum. My experience is exactly the same, except I am running MySQL 5.1.41 instead of 5.1.42.

A third party suggested it has something to do with directory or session permissions, or PHP configs. To test this, I uninstalled tw 4.1 and installed 3.4 in the same environment. 3.4 worked just fine. Then I upgraded to 4.1 over top of it and it reverted to previous bad behavior. So I believe it is a 4.x bug.

I've given this a high priority because the software is unusable if you can't install it, so you probably losing a lot of users.

Here's the other guy's description of the problem:
I am trying to preform a fresh install of TW4.1 on Windows Server 08 R2, IIS 7.5, PHP 5.2.12 and MySQL 5.1.42. However, after filling in the page for the database information to populate the database, I reach a page entitled

__Tiki Installer Security Precaution__

You are attempting to run the Tiki Installer. For your protection, this installer can be used only by a site administrator.

To verify that you are a site administrator, enter your database credentials (database username and password) here.

If you have forgotten your database credentials, find the directory where you have unpacked your Tiki and have a look inside the db folder into the local.php file.

I enter the 'root' account information and hit 'Validate and Continue'. But it takes me back to the 'Welcome' page. Now any link I hit Takes me to the validation page and I enter the correct user (root) account info and I'm sent back to the 'Welcome' page. The install doesn't want to continue.

If you want, check out www.nerdzone.net to see the site.

Tiki site in a box (Profile Manager)
I think what's needed is a Gallery of "Tiki Sites in a Box". In other words, Tiki sites that are preconfigured to meet a particular kind of needs. The needs should be defined not in terms of features, but in terms of GOALS of the end user or organisation.

This could be a list of descriptions like this:

- I want a site to enable collaboration inside my organisation.
- I want a site to broadcast my ideas to the world and allow people to add to them and comment on them.
- I want a site that will act as an open knowledge base on a particular topic.
- etc...

Each of these could point to an example which would be a "fake" site that could act as a sandbox. People could go to this fake site, play around with it (but not reconfigure it), to see if it's what they are looking for.

This would allow easy single click configuration of Tiki. The user would simply click on one of the items in the Gallery, and the Tiki site would be configured accordingly.

One issue is: what happens if the user choose wrong and later wants to switch to a different model? I guess if no content has been created in the site it's fine, but what if content has already been created and that content is somewhat incompatible with the new model that the user is choosing?

tiki-install.php to create mysql user, mysql database and assign permissions
Like many web applications, to install TikiWiki, you need to have already created your database (via phpMyAdmin or cPanel).

Maybe TikiWiki could handle this task using the mysql root/super user account?

Otherwise, maybe try via cPanel API if available (TRIM as well could try this)

tikidate problem
File: lib/tikidate-php5.php
Line: 174
Type: DateTime::setDate() expects parameter 2 to be long, string given

This started happening after I updated to the current subversion head and allowed the installer to upgrade the DB to UTF-8.

The symptom on the page is:

TikiWiki without AdoDB lacks the capability of writing correct UTF-8 data to MySQL
I have just migrated a Tiki from one server to another and ran into
UTF-8 Problems. The browser showed Umlauts as the dreaded diamonds with
question marks in them.

Both servers are fully utf-8 compliant as described in

The big problem is that on the new server PDO is available while it
isn't on the old one. According to the mailing list PDO is not default,
but as far as I can see in the code PDO will be default, if available
and not set otherwise. Setting


in db/local.php fixes the special character problem.

The issue seems to be that PDO gives a silent fuc# about encodings and
just pumps everything to the database and back as you hand it to it.
Additionally PHP/PDO doesn't read your my.cnf and therefore doesn't know
which encoding to use.
A quick fix is telling PDO which encoding to use - line 39 in
db/tiki-db-pdo.php :

$dbTiki = new PDO("$db_tiki:$db_hoststring;dbname=$dbs_tiki",
$user_tiki, $pass_tiki,array(PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_INIT_COMMAND => "SET NAMES

But I think that this is not safe to commit...
e.g. someone started with Tiki on MySQL 4.0 which used latin1 as
default, so all her tables are latin1. She upgrades MySQL to 5.1, but
doesn't change the Tiki database to default to utf-8 and hasn't
converted the database. Then the PDO-fix above will most probably
produce the same problem, just the other way around...

No idea, what to do actually, but wanting to raise awareness here!

This is a dangerous issue as people with utf-8 databases upgrading their
system or Tiki and switching automagically over to PDO will end up with
mixed stuff in their database: clean UTF-8 and double-byte
ansi-control-characters which MySQL converted to their right unicode
codepoints (freaky, hm? ;) ).

I hope, I was capable of describing the problem in a way that's

Trailing backslash at domain in URLs when installed in DocumentRoot
In my installation, on some internal links that are represented in an absolute way, there is a backslash between the domain name and the first slash.

Eg when I try to login on http://mydomain.com/index.php, I get redirected to http://mydomain.com\/tiki-login.php, which the server cannot render.

Clean install of:
MS Windows Server 2003 SE SP2 on x86
Apache 2.2.10
MySQL 5.1.30
PHP 5.2.8
TikiWiki 2.2

Tiki resides directly in the DocumentRoot C:\tiki (as it is a dedicated server).

In tiki-setup.php, there is a line

{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()} $tikiroot = dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']); {CODE}

In the documentation of [http://www.php.net/dirname |((dirname))], they state that since PHP 4.3.0, dirname returns unexpected values. The example implies that on Windows dirname('/x') returns '\'.

Therefore, if you install Tiki in the DocumentRoot, _SERVER['PHP_SELF'] will be '/filename.php' and $tikiroot will be '\'.

Versions plugin merges first line of text with marker
When using the __Versions__ plugin, Tiki incorrectly merges the first line of each "version" within the Version navigation bar. This causes problems when parsing wiki syntax for items that must begin at the start of the line (such as the numbering # syntax).



This broken numbered procedures, when Versions plugin is used to differentiate software versions (such as on doc.tw.o or ''Smarties'').

Wiki diff: Side-by-side as default instead of HTML diff
In 1.9.x, Side-by-side diff is the default

Sometime in the history of 1.10 (around when WYSIWYG editor arrived I think), HTML diff became the default.

This appears to be more of an accident than a conscience choice.

Side-by-side should re-become the default.

Ever better, the admin should should what the site default it.

Even better, each user could override this value in their preferences.

Wiki-links and non-latin characters
__problem __with Russian (and, as I understood, any non-English character language) wiki-links in CKE Editor (and plugins):
1. Let's create wiki page named "Фичи" (copy-paste, hope it'll be work)
2. Create page with any name e.g. test with wiki-link to a first page ("Фичи").
3. Link is broken. becouse on the stage of convertation from wiki-link to CKE URL something goes wrong and if You click on this link and choose "Edit Link" you'll see "tiki-index.php?page=Фичи"
3.1 Yes, link is broken:
Page not found
Hint: without WYSIWYG editor all will be ok. No broken links with any symbols.

__Why priority is high?__
-becouse we can't create ANY wiki-links from CKE-editor if wiki page named with non-Latin leters.

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.
