openid login currently not working for me, and it did months ago
I can't login to http://wiki-translation.com (using 1.10svn from june'08) with my openid account

I successfully used that openid account months ago to create a linked tiki account here (xavidp), but it seems that currently it doesn't work. Using the openid box I get the error:

"Authentication error; not a valid OpenID."

Maybe openid is broken? We are using kubrick theme there...

a module would be wonderful for the new slideshow features (mootols and jquery) . So far, you can use the slideshow in a wiki page embedding through the iframe plugin the url of the slideshow, but it's way too difficult for newbies.

That module would need some param to let the user choose whether to autosatrt the slideshow, or not (liek the flash plugin with movies).

And another param for automatic loop or just play once. I would say

another patch on aulawiki.1.6.2 for tikiwiki.2.2 + a new workspaces
These are more patches on aulawiki.1.6.2 posted by xavi

* Versions 1.6.2x are intended just to make aulawiki work on tikiwiki
2.2, the way it worked before.
* Versions 1.6.3x -1.6.4 were transition step.
* Versions 1.6.5x -1.7.x has put back capability to add groups to the
workspace (not only users), and see all child's groups, starting from
the topmost a user can admin, when adding perms to single workspace
This was be done by adding some new functions to workspaceslib.php:

- get_includable_child_workspaces_groups : will get all groups in WS and child workspaces, starting from the uppermost on which one has admin objectperm down, purged by veryfing a list of includable groups to avoid loop inclusion.
- user_can_admin_workspace_or_upper(), an alias of
get_topmost_workspace_Iadmin(): will get up in the workspace path and
return an upmost parent workspace one can admin, thus gives him admin
capability on the ws and children, or false.
And in lib/workspaces/userslib.php, function group_can_include_group() will check if the group we are trying to include can be included.

with these functions a RolePerm with tiki_p_admin_workspace has
view of all child workspaces and their groups down from the
topmost one he can admin, no matter in which of these he is actually
(current workspace), and be able to add groups and assign perms to
groups within all these ones (only) without need of of having
tiki_p_admin_workspaces also on any child ws.

To the intermediate objectperm tiki_p_create_workspace_resour has been given as a gift the possibility to add single users, not groups, to the workspace predefined groups. On the other hand he can grant objectperms to his resources choosing among any group that belongs to his 'workspace-level'(brothers workspaces) + his parent's (dad, see what I am doing!)

This behaviour is easily changeable in the code, as the ability to do things is stated at the top, where (object)permissions on the workspace are tested once and translated into variables used throughout the code.

In practice:
*'tiki_p_admin_workspaces' as an objectperm on a WS (got
from the RolePerms template for that type of Workspace) is de-facto a
local Workspace administrator. He can do everything (create new sub workspaces, add groups, change perms) except define new
workspace types and roles, and he sees only groups starting from the
topmost workspace he can admin to the bottom.
*tiki_p_create_workspace_resour, as objectperm on a WS (got from the
RolePerms template for that type of Workspace), can manage objectperms
of his ws resources (excluded the ws object itself) choosing among
a tree of groups that starts at his parent's level (dad, see what I am doing), includes 'brother workspaces' (on the same level, child of the same parent), down to bottom. He is a ''resource manager''. For adding users/groups to the ws, he can only add single users by typing the name, no groups. But if his ws has an admin group, he could add himself there. So __tipically workspaces either have a ws_admin role OR a ws_resource manager role__. On the other hand, a top, empty (no resources) workspace, with only an ws_admin role, would grant administration to all childs.
* For global tiki_p_admin_workspace nothing changes, although he is now prevented from including groups that include the includer, something that would put the entire site down.

For a user that has the approriate objectperms from the roles template
to the workspace (tiki_p_admin_workspace or, with less possibilities,
tiki_p_create_ws_resour, for the workspace object), everything can be
done starting from the resources module that has extra links to create child ws, add users/groups, and assign perms to resources.

The resouces module will show/hide Buttons and icons next to each
resource accordingly to what can be done by the actual type of user.

Most of the modifications happened in :

- tiki-workspaces_objectpermissions.ptp + templates
- modules/mod-workspaces_users_groups.php + templates
- lib/workspaceslib.php (new functions only)
- lib/users.php (new functions only)

With respect to the connection workspaces-categories, nothing should be changed. All categories related code is still there and used as before.

New permission scheme 1.7.0:
perm allows as allows as
name group perm objectperm
view_ws - -view the ws

create_resour - -create resour onws

admin_ws do all on any ws -add group/user to ws

perm allows as allows as
name group perm objectperm
view_ws - -view the ws

create_resour - (1) -create resour on ws
(de facto admin resour)
-change perms on ws
resources (excluded
the ws itself)
choosing from the
father ws groups and

-add single users(not groups)
to ws predefined groups

admin_ws -do all on any ws(2) -create child workspaces for
any ws from the topmost ws
he has admin rights

-change perms on ws object
itself & resources &
child-ws objects and
resources choosing from
the topmost ws groups
he has admin rights

-add any groups to any ws
choosing from the
topmost ws groups
he has admin rights

-create child workspaces to
any ws from the topmost ws
he has admin rights

(1) this slot is free! Can't we use it to allow the creation of an
'organic workspace' of some predefined type with himself as
tiki_p_create_resour objectperm on it?

(2) as he can add the 'admins' group, and add users to it, he is
defacto a tiki_p_admin.
maybe he should only be able to add 'workspaces groups'? This would
make him different from a tiki_p_admin_groups and tiki_p_admin.

(3) see comments and examples of different possiblties in
there's quite a lot I think, especially in the interface, making it
nicer and more intuitive.
-Add confirmation steps for various deletion actions
-Deletion of workspace does not delete its objects (should it?)
-test it really hard
-understand first, and maybe integrate, the working of 'Private Zones'
and 'user Workspace types' (isuserWS and userws filed in table).

banning by ip (not by user) shows a message "Notice: this variable may not be empty: user"
Hi, I've just added a new banning by ip rule at tw.o:

Title User/IP Sections Action
IP_dedes151_81.18.70.166 blogs, categories, cms, directory, faqs, featured_links, file_galleries, forums, galleries, gmaps, mytiki, poll, user_messages, wiki page

but I got message
Notice: this variable may not be empty: user
On a tiki screen as if I was not logged (and I was, as user xavidp with admin rights).
But below, after the footer section, a new tiki header and the rest of another tiki page appeared, and it looked as if Tiki recognized me as logged on the header (my picture is shown), but the login module was also shown for anonymous to log in, on the right column.

See html attached.

The rules seemed to be saved.

Cron-job map-generation
The tw.o-maps are mostly out of date - due to a human-bug (messed up longitude and latitude) I live in Somalia since I enter my geographic data on tw.o some months ago.

I can understand, that the admins got other things to do than re-generate the maps. And I can't think of any other needed cron job in tw.o, but never the less it would be cool to have some cron-table to execute certain PHP-function (at least I guess map-generation is some kind of PHP-function).

Images don't appear to some people when using GD on Windows server (weird)
This is a problem which is very difficult to debug because some people see the images and some don't. We have not yet been able to find a correlation of what causes the issue.

Doesn't work (for some people):
{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()}
{img src="show_image.php?id=76" width=800 }

The source of the problem seems to be something between the GD image library, Windows and TikiWiki. I have never seen such a problem with Linux/GD/TikiWiki.

The alternate method we are now using is totally bypassing the GD image library (works for all):
{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()}
{img src="img/wiki_up/Dashboard_Selection.jpg" width=800 }
