Page creators are admin of their pages, but unable to remove them
"Page creators are admin of their pages" allows the page creator to lock and unlock, but not remove. This is important because if you are admin of the page you really need to be able to remove it. The intention of this feature is obviously that you should be able to remove, so this appears to be a bug.

"Perform action with checked" not working for "Remove"
At any list of pages, tiki-listpages.php for example, after checking some sites and choosing "Remove" at the checkbox "Perform action with selected:" i get redirected to a new site with a list of sites i have checked and a big button saying "Click here to confirm your action".
After clicking that button i again get redirected to to list but the pages have not been removed.

This bug was tested on 2 different wikis running on XAMPP on a W2K3-machine.

Hope you can help.

"Source" button in wiki page should have its own permission - not depend on tiki_p_view_history
This is a new feature arrived in BRANCH-1-9

1. add feature_print and checks
2. add tiki_p_print and checks

The above problem-description makes no sense... please look at tw#74 for that
Problem rephrased:

The "Source" button is currently dependant on tiki_p_view_history - it should have a perm of its own.

"The page cannot be displayed" message
We had just reconfigured the disk to RAID1 and backed up mysql, tiki, and php on our linux box.

Now, we are getting "Page cannot be displayed" after we edit the homepage and try to save it. It is happening on tiki-editpage.php but it is there. The permissions are 644 apache.

The second thing seen is the forums messages can't be accessed anymore.

Does anybody have experience with these problems? Any suggestions? Perhaps we should re-install all the software.

I've added the following features to my tikiwiki 1-9-5:
1. added max_depth to {toc}
with {toc max_depth=3} I can limit the depth of the toc created. This is convenient if I only want to show the next level of subsections.

2. get a file by name via tiki-download_file
with galleryId=<id>&name=<?> I can retreive a file by name. If there are files with the same name the most recent is taken. This is convenient as I can reference the files by there name, e.g. schedule, an I can easily update it with out changing pages. Dynamic content would also work but I prefere the name as it is more obvious than 'content id=42'

3. get a random picutre from a gallery via show_image
with galleryId=<id> a random picture of the identified gallery is given.

1-click access to be able to do certain actions (view a page, edit a page, edit user tracker, etc)
Sometimes, we want people to participate to one wiki page, to access their user tracker to update personal information or access a ((workspace))

Right now, we need to

#create a user
#create a group
#assign user to the group
#give permissions to group ( in general or for a specific item)
#inform this person, typically by email, on how to access this page

Instead, I would want to
#add an email
#pick the permissions this person has
#any limitations (works x times, or for x days/weeks)
#an optional message

And the system should send a 1-click login email (an email with a link in it which is unique / very difficult to guess).

Whoever clicks that link
*Would be authenticated with the appropriate permissions and according to the limitations.

Expiry date for group membership

How to protect wiki pages
Hi to all,

I want to know if you can create a protected page that only logged in users can see, I know I can turn off the wiki so only logged in users can access it, but is there any way that I can put under restriction only a few pages since they contain some important info that can be shared only by users that have accounts on the wiki.

Many thanks

group category permissions
for example:
5 users in group home
6 pages in category home

I want all public can view these 6 pages in home category, but only these 5 users can edit pages content ( not the objects in the category, it is the content of the page!! ).
I know I can setup the permissions page by page to the home group, but what I am looking for is category to group relationship, not page to group, don't want to do it page by page, or maybe there is one way to do that, but I don't know yet.

Thank you very much.

Time machine / browsing an old version of the wiki
Tiki 7 includes the "Previous version" feature allowing links to refer to "older versions" of a wiki page (either by version number or date). What would be nice is to have a general way to browse an older snapshot of the *whole* wiki.
We have a wiki describing a quite complex scientific model and have a lot of model description in wiki pages. What we want is to access "snapshots" of the whole wiki. E.g: the state of the wiki from 1.1.2011 is the one describing the model version 1.2 and is used for this or this scientific publication. While the latest version of the wiki (27.6.2011) reflects ongoing developments one may want to surf the version from the 1.1. (e.g. to look for details that are not in the publication).
Is this (already) possible? I think an extension to the "previous version" function could do the trick (I have no idea of the inner workings of tikiwiki)...

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.

[10:28] <xavi> smae behavior in many servers (using Tiki 4.x, 5.x... tried with setting utf-8 and iso-8859-1)
[10:29] <xavi> I get most emails all right , email reader (thunderbird, gmail, etc.) can read them properly, but not emails from changes in wiki pages...
[10:30] <xavi> I wonder if this can be some problem with the encoding in some tpl , or that the code for sending emails from changes in wiki pages uses some different method than the rest of email sending... and that other method is not handling charset properly... (just hypothesis)
[10:31] <xavi> asking here first in case someone who already knows the internals of Tiki has some tips...
[10:31] <xavi> to quickly refuse some hypothesis...
[10:32] * xavi fears looking at the code for this and getting lost in php code , zend code, and other gibberish which he can't understand easily....
[10:41] <xavi> ok, at least I know some more information about the problem (charset for wiki watch emails)
[10:42] <xavi> I double checked in one site, and everywhere is set to use utf-8 as encoding (admin general, admin community, and my own user pref settings), but wiki watch emails come with: "content-type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1"

Add ability to generate RSS from a specific structure (and maybe category)
The ability to subscribe to a specific structure via RSS feed would be very useful. Currently one can subscribe to an RSS feed related to the entire wiki, but if several groups are using the wiki for different projects or purposes or topics, this may not be at all useful. For example, on the Southern New Hampshire University wiki, we have the online faculty handbook plus a variety of page sets related to different course projects. Most faculty should be alerted of changes to the faculty handbook, which resides in a structure, and some students and faculty may want to track changes to structures involved with specific courses or departments, but few if any users need to be alerted of every change to the wiki as a whole. The ability to generate an RSS feed specific to a structure (and possibly also specific to a category) would be very helpful.

Admin>Login>User defaults or Admin>Groups: Ability to Subscribe new users to specific Tiki objects
It would be lovely to set some new user defaults at
* Admin (home) > Login > User defaults, and/or
* Admin > Groups > (Edit a single group)

The ability to Subscribe/watch/monitor new users in the site or to that specific group, to specific Tiki objects.

Which tiki objects?: I would say, in this order:
# specific forums
# specific blogs
# specific calendars
# specific newsletters (ML: we can already subscribe groups to newsletters)
# specific wiki pages
# specific structures
# specific trackers
# specific categories
# new articles

This is specially useful for new users of the site, where they don't know yet how to subscribe to specific areas, etc. Very needed for educational scenarios, but I can see many other places where new users are a bit lost for some time while they learn how to use the Tiki site.

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.

Better attachments display/attach button on wiki pages
Currently, when one attaches a first file to a wiki page, the attach a file tab turns into a tab that says how many attachments there already are on the page. Clicking on this button does two things:

o No way for people to monitor all posts on the site. Often people post a comment on a a page and never get feedback.

Associating a discussion forum thread to each page

* Pros
o Everyone on the site gets to see every posting that's made on any page. Increases the likelyhood that someone will respond to a post.
* Cons
o More difficult to configure.
o Postings are not visible directly on the page.

It would be nice if we could have the best of both.

What I would like is something where:

* A discussion forum for the wiki can be enabled at a single click of the mouse.
* This single click of mouse would result in threads being a
utomatically created on this mailing list for each of the wiki pages
* The top 5 messages for a given page would be displayed directly on that page.

Better handling of page renaming
When renaming a page, an option to automagically add a placeholder page.

This placeholder page should be the redirect plugin, which sends to the new page and has "301" headers so search engines know to update their DB.

Cannot add new page to Structure
When trying to add a new page to an existing structure I got the following error:

Field 'structure_id' doesn't have a default value

I could correct this very simply by going into the MySQL administrator and changing that column to have a default value of 0. I guess this is just that the DB set up SQL is incorrect and needs to have default value added to that column. I used the update SQL from 1.8 to 1.9 to create this tikiwiki so I guess that is the SQL that would need to be changed. I have not tested the new clean DB install of 1.9.

Cannot create table with percentages column.
Cannot create table with percentages column.
This simple table code should create a 2x2 table with the second column having percentages, but instead the percent symbols are treated as indication of a dynamic variable.

On the other hand, if an image is inserted in another column, the percent symbols are not treated as dynamic variable anymore, and the table appears correctly.
||name|pic|value||JohnDoe|{img src=}|50%||JaneDoe|{img src=}|50%||

In my oppinion, the identification of a dynamic variable inside a table shouldn't extend beyond each cell of a table, let alone a full row...

Category permission check for wiki page menu option not working in some cases
Wiki pages links are case insensitive but the category permission check for wiki pages menu entry only works if the case of the link matches the case of the wiki page name.

Say you have a wiki page called "Foo" and the "Registered" group has view permission to this page granted by a category. If you create a menu entry linking to the "Foo" page and set the URL as "((Foo))" everything will work as expected. But if you set the URL as "((foo))" the menu option will not appear to the users of the "Registered" group. Obviously for this to happen the "Registered" group must not have global tiki_p_view.

This does not happen if object permissions, instead of category permissions, grant access to the "Foo" page.

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
La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_watch_structure Categoría: Public Content
La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments Categoría: Public Content
La Función Esencial y El Propósito de Vida Anonymous tiki_p_wiki_view_comments Categoría: Public Content

Category Perms of "Public Content" are

for anonymous group perms that are ON:

Can view wiki attachments and download (tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments)
Can view page/pages (tiki_p_view)
View page backlinks (tiki_p_view_backlink)

Global Perms are:

on Wiki:

Can view wiki attachments and download (tiki_p_wiki_view_attachments) is ON for Anonymous
Can view page/pages (tiki_p_view) is OFF for Anonymous
View page backlinks (tiki_p_view_backlink) is ON for Anonymous

Fixes tried:

Have tried the opposite: allowing everything to be shown to Anonymous, and then restrict on pages that should be hidden with a "invisible" category with perms tiki_p_view OFF for anonymous group.

And it didn´t work since - again - for Some wikis worked, and for some others not. Even if they are identical.

Code plugin messes up page width (right hand column is now offscreen)
When you use the code plugin, the page width formatting is thrown off. Instead of seeing both left/right colums, the right column gets shoved off the screen and I have to scroll. This is with scroll bars already setup on the code plugin itself.

Chealer :
This happens when nowrap was not set.

Gary (chibaguy):
In my checking (trunk version, but same relevant CSS as in Tiki 3 and $), almost all browsers respect the overflow:auto rule for the code plugin and don't cause the page to widen. I put a long unbroken line of text in the code plugin, and in Opera, IE, Safari (Windows), and SRWare Iron (Chromium - webkit), even this unbroken line was broken to impose a scrollbar on the code area and avoid a scrollbar on the window. Firefox was the only browser that failed at this.

If the current rules - overflow:auto, and 90% width in some themes - then all browsers will allow the long line to display unbroken and create the page-bottom scrollbar, pushing the right column out of view. As I understand it, this is the behavior reported as a bug here.

Default diff in Tiki 1.10
Tiki 1.9.x behavior was to show side-by-side diff as default (good). In BRANCH-1-10, many new diffs were added (good). However, now the default diff is "HTML diff" (bad). Please change back to "Side-by-Side diff". Even better would be site-wide and user defaults.

So site admin would determine default diff mode, which could be overriden in user settings. And still pickable for each page.

Defaut user wiki page name should be based on realname instead of e-mail
In 1.10 now we can set to login as e-mail and display realname wherever possible. But the user wiki page by default is set to 'UserCreate<e-mail>. We should still allow user to create his page with 'UserCreate<username/real name>'.

The recommended behaviour should be if user chooses e-mail to be private or it could be if admin sets to disaply realname wherever possible, then it should use 'UserCreate<realname>' other cases it can be based on e-mail.

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.

Duplication of wiki content on save - maketoc related?
Everytime I use the maketoc inside a wiki page on a fresh tikiwiki 3.2 install the whole page content is duplicated every time I hit "save". Even if I delete all the content but one version and hit save the whole PREVIOUS page is duplicated again. Like I hit save: two times the page content. I delete all but one time the content, I hit save: three times the page content. I delete all but one time ... save ... four times the page content.
Only removing the maketoc makes it possible to get rid of the problem. But meanwhile the wiki content has become a bit more (30-40 pages) and the same problem happens more and more often without having any maketoc included when the page is becoming bigger.
That was done with Opera browser on a page with 4 h1 headings but I doubt it is a browser problem. :)
