"GZip output" (feature_obzip) causes encoding errors in CSRF and error screens
"Gzip output" (feature_obzip) is defective in two different tikis (in 2 different servers).... proposals/6x and trunk

Once enabled, when I attempt to visit a few pages as anonymous, for which I should see the "Error, your are not logged in. Go to Log in Page" message, I see instead a message from firefox saying that there is an error in the enconding of the content (attempting to use a compression method not valid or that it doesn't work in this application):

Error de codificació del contingut

No ha pogut mostrar-se la pàgina que esteu intentant visualitzar perquè utilitza una forma de compressió no vàlida o que no funciona en aquesta aplicació.

* Poseu-vos en contacte amb els propietaris del lloc per a informar-los del problema.

Once I disable the gzip output, tiki behaves normally.
Moreover, this issue might have been the reason why the new spreadsheet features being developed in trunk by robertplummer were failing (Chrome just says that the server is temporarily unavailable) recently in a test we were doing in the same server.

And that might be the (potential) responsible for the issues with sending newsletters in prposals/6x (just before the release of tiki 6.2).

{maketoc} in a wiki page wich contain TABS plugin
Put a maketoc in a page wich contains TAB plugin, and the maketoc produces a table of content of all that is inside TABS, but when you click on an item in the toc, we need to have the right tab active.
It could be great that the clic on the toc would active the concerned tab

I hop I'm clear, I don't know if it's a bug or a feature request, so I put the entry as a request.

Upload new version fails with Chromium 11 on Ubuntu
In Tiki 6.3, when using the 'Upload New Version' feature in the file gallery with Chromium 11 on Ubuntu 10.04 amd64, the file selection dialog appears, but when a file is chosen, nothing happens.

It appears to be an incompatibility with the browser, as the bug does not exist when using the following browsers/OS:
- Firefox 3.6, Ubuntu 10.04
- Chrome 11, Windows 7
- IE 8, Windows 7

Couldn't find anything on the chromium bug list or tiki bug list.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

workaround to open ticket #2188
This is a workaround for the bug described below. We just had this same problem occur in Tiki Wiki 6.3. Our Architect looked at the code and said the search wasn't recognizing the pages' language. I turned off the multilingual feature that I just turned on last week (May 31, 2011), and our search function worked normally again.

This is a cut and paste of the following open bug I found that describes this problem:

Subject Search function does not work when tiki-searchindex.php is first invoked
Submitted by Geoff Brickell
Priority 9 high
Category Bug: Error
Tiki Version 2.x
Feature Search
Description Using the Search link in the application menu invokes tiki-searchindex.php which does not return any results no matter what you search for.

Having had a 'failed' search you are however now at tiki-searchresults.php and all subsequent searches work fine.

When you use the Search box module you fill in the form and the form 'action' is to run tiki-searchresults.php - and so this works fine.

This was previously logged as id 1696 - but this flagged the problem as a usability problem with the tiki support site rather than a possible coding bug - so have submitted this again.

PluginTracker: Not implementing 'blank' date default for date/time fields which aren't included on the tracker form
Example: I've created a created including two date fields, Date Started and Date Closed.

Both are date and time data type, with options d,2008,,blank

I've also created a wiki page and added a tracker new item form with PluginTracker, configured to display only Date Started. When saving the new item, the visible field (Date Started) inserts a blank as expected (from the values in the controls), but the hidden field (Date Closed) inserts today's date. If Date Closed is made visible, it starts defaulting to blank as well. So hidden fields appear to be behaving as if option 'empty' rather than option 'blank', or not picking up the option at all.

WYSIWYG doesn't create tables with Wiki syntax
If I create a table using the WYSIWYG Editor and click on the __Source__ button, the generated code is using HTML code like this:


Instead of the real Wiki Syntax for tables ([http://doc.tiki.org/Wiki-Syntax+Tables]).

I guess a "HTML->Wiki Syntax Translation" setting must be missing.

As an example, I found out a MediaWiki WYSIWYG CKEditor that does this same translation just fine. Maybe you could check out the code:

PluginButton locks entire wiki in 500 internal error when included in a user plugin
When the PluginButton plugin is included in a User Module and that User Module is used on the wiki, it will lock down the wiki in "Internal Error 500" mode. So no matter what page you visit, you will get "500 internal error".

LDAP login error causes blank page instead of "Login error" page
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. This bug is across all browsers.

Our organization has LDAP (Active Directory) enabled. If a user does not type in the correct password or has chosen to remember an old password (that has since been resent by AD) they will not be able to login and there is no screen to tell them why not. On login error, I can see in the LDAP logs:

Error: Bind failed: Invalid credentials

but a blank page is presented. Since the user does not think their invalid login is the problem, they keep trying and blame the system.

A non admin user can not self manage their own group
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.

What we would like to do in our organization is for an admin to create group MyGroup and assign Bill to the group. The admin would then give the MyGroup object permissions:
* Can add group members (tiki_p_group_add_member)
* Can remove group members (tiki_p_group_remove_member)
* Can invite user to my groups (tiki_p_invite_to_my_groups)

At this point I would figure that there would be some kind of interface so that Bill could have a user selector and bring people into his group. I have checked around but I can not see any mechanism to do this.

We want to avoid our admin to manage groups for 1000's of users.

On a side note, we also investigated letting users select their own groups however we can also not find a mechanism to do this. We enabled all permissions we could think of such as:
* Can subscribe to groups (tiki_p_subscribe_groups)
* Can join or leave the group (tiki_p_group_join)
* In the group we selected "User can assign to the group himself"
but we can still not find where the user can change his group.

Our users sign in with their LDAP (AD) logins and therefore do not go through the Registration process.

Any help would be very much appreciated as this is a big issue for us right now.

Newsletter subscriptions by anonymous
I'm testing a tiki replacement for our old CMS Made Simple CMS. I'm using the Fivealive Theme and I've set read permissions for anonymous visitors to view newsletter archives though they have to subscribe. In that window to subscribe there's a CaptCha code but there isn't a dialogue box for entering an email address to subscribe. However, when I enter the code, I get the following response:

"Newsletters Help

Thanks for your subscription. You will receive an email soon to confirm your subscription. No newsletters will be sent to you until the subscription is confirmed."

Obviously, that can't happen without having an email address to send the confirmation to.

I've tested this in Konqueror, Chromium and Firefox in an Ubuntu environment; Chrome, IE9 & Firefox in Win 7 Ultimate environment; and Firefox and IE8 in an XP Pro environment. All with the same interface results.

tar.gz / tgz corruption in File Galleries downloads
Uploading a .tar.gz or .tgz file seems to go fine. The "tar tzf" command on the back-end file returns the archive's file listing and "gzip -t" does not show any errors. However, downloading the file with Chrome or FireFox into WinRar claims the archive is corrupt. Downloading the same file with IE works just fine. One of the files in question:


Feel free to test. I found a bug from 2006 where this was also happening and it suggested turning off gzip output compression. Looking at the performance settings (it used to be in general) I see gzip output compression was already off, so I turned it on. This did not fix the behavior.

Other files (images and a .rar file) are served A-OK, it is just the .tar.gz and .tgz files that screw up. Back-end storage checksum matches the original file:

$ md5sum THD-fig4.tgz /var/www/localhost/htdocs/tikifiles/7271d5da7a5dc935fe2576ef0a427a69
663f408c4dfc6ca864756f70aa2f9f29 THD-fig4.tgz
663f408c4dfc6ca864756f70aa2f9f29 /var/www/localhost/htdocs/tikifiles/7271d5da7a5dc935fe2576ef0a427a69

This means upload is working A-OK it's just the download that's screwing up. I've edited /etc/mime.types to move the "tgz" extension from the default "application/x-gtar" into "application/octet-stream", but this did not help the file corruption. One of the downloaded files is:

-rw-r--r-- 1 eo eo 60247 Jul 16 21:24 THD-fig4 (2).tar.gz
f3e4f281d2041ce2554d343156b4a1ce THD-fig4 (2).tar.gz

The original being:

-rw-rw---- 1 eo eo 60997 Jul 16 20:36 THD-fig4.tgz

The gzip layer looks in tact on the broken file, but the tar layer isn't OK:

eo@jo ~/THD $ gzip -t "THD-fig4 (2).tar.gz"
eo@jo ~/THD $ echo $?
eo@jo ~/THD $ tar tzf "THD-fig4 (2).tar.gz"
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
eo@jo ~/THD $

A little further investigation shows the file is double compressed!

eo@jo ~/THD $ gunzip < "THD-fig4 (2).tar.gz" > "THD-fig4 (2).tar"
eo@jo ~/THD $ file "THD-fig4 (2).tar"
THD-fig4 (2).tar: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Sat Jul 16 20:36:37 2011
eo@jo ~/THD $ tar tzf "THD-fig4 (2).tar"
eo@jo ~/THD $

Even with the mime type set back to the original "application/x-gtar" this is the case. Even with gzip output compression disabled now and chrome cache cleared, the file still is presented corrupted by the server.
