"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).

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

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:

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

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]).

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

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 using the Fivealive Theme and I've set read permissions for anonymous visitors to view newsletter archives though they have to subscribe.

"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.

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.

User must have global permission tiki_p_edit for adding a new page in categorized structure also he has it in the categorie.
I defined a structure Helpdesk FAQ and a categorie Helpdesk.

If a helpdeskadmin trys to add a page with the button on the top of the wikipage with over the toc, the message "You do not have permission to edit this page." appears.

The problem seems to be the following permission test in tiki-editpage.php:

if ($tiki_p_edit !== 'y') {
$smarty->assign('errortype', 401);

6x: Webmail account can't be deleted (& unreliable behavior)

In 4.x it was working me (I created most of the documentation in doc:((doc:Groupmail))

Maybe that's because Webmail is not working either...?

What I did:
* installed a new tiki proposals/6x tiki site in localhost
* added ajax_xajax feature to the groupmail profile (it was missing)
* applied Groupmail profile
* followed instructions to setup a new group (web)mail account
* the module groupmail is spinning all the time, and no messages are shown
* I've double checked that the user and pass info for that email account are all right

I also applied that profile on a remote server (a production site) and no luck either. No email is fetched.
I checked the webemail account (by means of other webmail software) and I confirm that it has plenty of read email, and 2 new messages pending to be read.
Weird, after I tried to unsuccessfully delete that account in the remote (production) server, it seems that webmail started to work!

alarm field type in trackers
Trackers are great in Tiki, it provides a way to build quick and easy register solutions.
When used in any context related to monitoring, it would be nice to have a way to associate a record with one or more events in time. For instance you would like to receive an email at the time the issue related to the task should be controlled and/or be resolved.

Thinking on it as a feature, the following could be considered in the solution:
*It could exist more than one "timer" in the tracker record,
*It should be added like any other tracker field to the record definition,
*It could have different ways to alert: email, rss, ... (maybe only one choice when instance),
*It could have rules, like auto disable when the record is closed (or other condition),
*It could be (as an option) reprogrammed,

and also
*Maybe a user wants to know about all his/her pending "timers".
*Maybe timer implementation could be independent objects that are linked to (special fields in) tracker records (or other objects), so global management is possible.

I guess that a good part of above functionality is already in Tiki in some form.

Calendar Synchronisation
There are a lot of different PIM applications using the iCal format, that Tiki can export.

As example I showed a usecase, where s.b. needed a synchronisation between Tiki and Google calendars, to make Tiki generated events visible in his Google Calendar, to ease the effort of sheduling between Tiki generated events and his personal google events.

I suggest a project for Calendar Syncronisation.

Cannot access popup menus in some themes
This is about the popup menus in the top part of the page and applies to several of the default themes in version 6.

In many of the themes, there seems to be a gap between the menu heading and the popup such that when the mouse is moved down to access a popup menu, the menu disappears, making it nearly impossible to access!

A theme example is Arcturus - Amette, but that is not the only one, no the worst.

This happens on both Safari and OmniWeb.

It is actually possible to access the popup with some practise. There seems to be some flag toggling going on as well because it can be made easier if the popping up is reset in some way.

When you have a group name like "Finance and Marketing Departments" and you create another group called "Finance and Marketing Departments Moderators".

Category Permissions not taken care properly for showing wiki pages
Please help since we have invested much time and effort in this project, believing Tiki could filter rightly wiki pages based on perms, and since I cannot find a workaround.

When not logged in, Some wiki pages are shown, and Some others Not, while they all have exactly the same set up. They all have been categorized only in "Public Content" category which is set to Show wikis to Anonymous users, while Global perms are set to not show them to anonymous.

At this moment we have two identical wiki pages as setup is concerned:
1) http://mi.solcentral.org/tiki-index.php?page=La+Funci%C3%B3n+Esencial+y+El+Prop%C3%B3sito+de+Vida
which doesn´t show to Anonymous users (and should do it)


2) http://mi.solcentral.org/tiki-index.php?page=Sobre+el+Sitio+SolCentral-org
which shows well.
Note that at the botton of this page, in the listing of pages related to the category "Contenido Público" (which is the translation of "Public content"), the page "The Esential Function And Life's Purpose" (wich is the translation of "La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida") that is the page 1)... Then if you click on it, it will not show presenting you with the login invitation, allthough is shown in the list as categorized "Public Content".

Other extraneous behavior is that when when you use the Plugin Toc to show the structure, only shows Some wikis on some structures, and on some other structures doesn´t show any wiki.
I have used this:~np~{toc structId="26" order=asc shownum=1 type=fancy }~/np~ in the wiki:

Actual estate of config is:

For anonymous:

If Perms on wiki: "La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida"

La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_view Categoría: Public Content
La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_view_backlink Categoría: Public Content

Character Replacement Problem (IE & to &amp;)

#~np~(Saved once, and then reopened) I “can‘t“ ''code'' &amp; I can‘t __think__.~/np~

CKEditor breaks links to wiki pages
The symptoms are:
- backlinks work sometimes only
- when deleting a page it does not always become a wanted page
- others ???

The result is:
- unpredictable behavior
- negative impact on the user acceptance

The problem is, that the syntax of the links change:
1) Type ~np~((Page 1))~/np~ in the WYSIWYG mode and save
-> ~np~((Page 1))~/np~
2) save again in WYSIWYG mode
-> ~np~<a class="wiki" href="tiki-index.php?page=Page+1" title="Page 1">Page 1</a>~/np~
3) save again in WIKI mode
-> ~np~[tiki-index.php?page=Page+1|Page 1]~/np~
4) save again in WYSIWYG mode
-> ~np~<a class="wiki" href="tiki-index.php?page=Page+1">Page 1</a>~/np~

This makes 3 1/2 different representations of a link to 'Page 1'

CKEditor contentsLangDirection by page language
The multilingual/translation support is integrated with the WYSIWYG feature in a way that if you are working in an English interface, the text direction in CKEditor remains LTR even when the page being edited is defined as being in Hebrew, which is RTL. I expect that this applies to any other RTL language.

Similarly, it seems to me (though I haven't tested it thoroughly) that a user working in a Hebrew interface would get RTL behaviour in CKEditor even when editing an English page.

I can only assume that use of the English-language interface for editing Arabic pages and Arabic-language interface for English pages is common, as such combinations are certainly common where Hebrew is involved. The forcing of direction according to interface language rather than page language is likely to be a significant annoyance in all such cases.

The ideal solution would be to make the editor direction dependent on the page language's direction, and only according to the user's language if there is no page language set (there is a CKEditor option which does that - see http://docs.cksource.com/ckeditor_api/symbols/CKEDITOR.config.html#.contentsLangDirection)

Code 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.

Our users are editing in the CKEditor WYSIWYG and try the Code plugin from the toolbar. The Code window opens as expected and the users enter their code in the correct field. On pressing Insert (or Replace) the code plugin is added in the editor but there is no contents in the plugin. If I open the normal editor it displays as%%%~np~{code caption="MyCode.java"}~/np~%%% which is completely the wrong syntax.

If I try using the Code option in FF then it opens a new window and I can add the code just fine. I view from the normal editor and it reads%%%~np~{CODE( caption="MyCode.java")}public class MyCode {
//testing a point
}{CODE}~/np~%%% which is correct.

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.

Danger with Watches and PluginGroup
When writing a particular wiki page, and being set this page to be watched to a group (let say Registered users).

Then if the page has plugingroup to hide particular peaces of special text that is not intended to be known by certain users. Then every time this page changes, a notification email is sent to all Registered users (this is ok), but in the content of this email all the source code is revealed to EVERY user on the Registered group, regardless if they have the right to see Source of wikis.

Don´t know how this could survive the testing and dogfood of this community. May be there is another way to let the Registered group to be acknowledged of a change in a wiki, without compromising content. Please enlight me on how to do this much of the work done on our live tiki portal uses plugingroup to restrict snippets of text to certain groups and other snippets has to shown, in the same wiki.

There should be an option to configure a watch to be sent in a way that only alerts the user that a particular page has changed without showing all source, in respect to a particular right to see or no to see the source.

I have checked on the proper user rights and object perms to avoid them to receive this notifications in the proper way, but tiki doesn´t seem to take it.

Database engine is inconsistent on hosts with non-MyISAM default engines.
When installing Tiki 6.1 on a system with an engine other than MyISAM as the MySQL default, it creates a random mix of MyISAM tables and the default type tables. This gives the user all the drawbacks of using MyISAM without any of the benefits of using MyISAM, since the management features specific to each engine cannot be used uniformly. Ideally, Tiki should honor the MySQL default, but even forcing MyISAM consistently would be an improvement.

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.

fix sheets created directly from wiki SHEET plugin within wiki pages for managing tables visually
Spreadsheets can be created directly through wiki SHEET plugin directly within wiki pages. this allows managing big tables visually, as well as having the data ready for producing graphs, etc. (see documentation for tikisheets at doc.tw.o, if needed)

However, when you create a sheet through a call to the SHEET plugin from the wiki page itself, there are 3 issues which need to be fixed:
# you need to know the id you want to assign it to,
# after that, tiki-sheets.php doesn't list it (even if the sheet is really created, and you can import data to it, and show it at the wiki pages, etc.).
# the sheet is not shown with the right css

Even if we have wysiwyg option available, I still think that is worth improving tiki sheets usability to be used directly from wiki pages, once those 3 previous issues are fixed.
Updated on Feb. 2, 2011, using trunk (7svn)
# Steps to reproduce the first issue
## Edit a wiki page
## Use the plugin helper to create a new sheet in that page. And since it's a new sheet, it doesn't have a sheetId yet, so that you leave all fields empty in the plugin helper for the pluginsheet
++ this will add this type of code in your wiki page:
++ {CODE()}{sheet}{CODE}
## Save the wiki page
++ you will see an empty sheet shown in place at that wiki page, with the button at the bottom to allow the user to "edit it" (so far, so good)
## Once you click in the edit sheet button, you end up in some url like this one:
++ http://localhost/tiki7trunk/tiki-view_sheets.php?sheetId=&parse=edit
++ which produces a WSOD (blank page).
*** In my case, I guess that this url should have been:
+++ http://localhost/tiki7trunk/tiki-view_sheets.php?sheetId=2&parse=edit
+++ since I had only one sheet previously created, with sheetId 1, so that the next one should be 2. However, this new url is still producing WSOD for me. (tiki caches cleared, just in case, repeated this step, and same WSOD)

The expected behavior is that the user is the user would be editing a blank new sheet with the url:

and when the user saves that sheet, the new sheetId 2 exists, and the user is either sent back to the wiki page where he clicked at the button "edit sheet" (preferable option) or either sent to the corresponding tiki view sheet 2.

in the comment it is stated that the paragraph should only begin at first NON-BLANK line

Forum rankings broken
tiki-forum_rankings.php is broken since Tiki 4 due to its usage of function forums_ranking_last_topics(), which was removed:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method RankLib::forums_ranking_last_topics() in /var/www/tiki/6.x/tiki-forum_rankings.php on line 70


Fatal error: Call to undefined method RankLib::forums_ranking_last_topics() in /var/www/tikitrunk/tiki-forum_rankings.php on line 72

The method was removed in r20573.

FT vs Tiki search problem
While setting up Tiki 6.0 (upgrading from an earlier version) I found that if you enable Full Text Search but not Tiki search, search is treated as a disabled feature on the admin pages.

Also the top search bar works only for tiki search, while the main search function does work with FT.

FTP Plugin and big files
Using the [http://doc.tiki.org/PluginFtp&structure=Documentation|FTP Plugin], when you try to download a big file you'll encounter an error like this:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 59506688 bytes) in /home/myUser/public_html/lib/wiki-plugins/wikiplugin_ftp.php on line 65

In this case, I had tried to download a 56 MB file with a PHP memory_limit set to 128 MB on my hosting.

Group theme no longer working.
The group theme functionality no longer works in 5.x and 6.0.

To test:
*Set "each group can have its own theme" in Admin>Look&Feel>theme
*Admin>Groups, edit a group and try to set the default theme for a group.
*nothing happens.

*theme control - still working.
*user preferences - theme - still working.

Handling [[Text] in Trunk does not produce [Text] but a link in 6.0 trunk
I got a strange problem when writing a text in square brackets (in trunk):

~np~[[These brackets] should stay~/np~

should result in the output
~np~[These brackets] should stay~/np~
but they produce
~np~<a class="wiki" href="These brackets" rel="">These brackets</a> should stay~/np~
It works as expected in 5.0

HTML line break tags displayed within PluginCode when nested within PluginSplit
In 6x, 7x and 8x, the <br /> tag is displayed when there is a line break within PluginCode when PluginCode is within PluginSplit. This can be seen at [http://doc.tiki.org/tiki-pagehistory.php?page=PluginFancyTable&preview=41#Example].

HTTP request productivity with lots of small images
Dear Tiki team

Trying to install Tiki 6.2. But just now realized that my quota for web server is 10,000 files only. Current compilation of Tiki is 10,648 files. Inside the compilation, there so many small images files that could be joined into one image file by categories, and this way HTTP request for pages elements would be enhanced. I think you know about sprites: Image optimization method (http://css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/43-how-to-use-css-sprites/). Besides from reducing the # of files, this method will reduce the # of HTTP requests and increase response time.

Because of limitation on my server, I am deleting some files. Do you have any other suggestions for me.

I10n: admin pages not displayed properly
Installed a clean TW6.1 for a new multilingual project.
Choosed to limit languages to either german or english.
whenever the language is set to german (english works fine btw.) and i want to go to an admin subpage (like tiki-admin_modules.php, tiki-admin.php works fine) i only get (i guess) the $mid part of the templates - white background with unformatted text and no js or css

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.
