Article ratings apparently not working
First of all, the template checks for a $use_ratings variable to display the article's rating which, in my case, appears to be always null even though ratings are activated. Why do I think they are? Because the form to submit a rating shows up, because depends on $prefs.article_user_rating and $tiki_p_rate_article being 'y', which they are.

On my particular site, all articles have a rating of "7/10". Which is weird, because most of them haven't been rated and the configured rating options range from 1-4, and not 1-10. If I try to actually submit a rating, the actual rating still is 7, even though the "generate rating" is set to "on vote".

Banner display setting: To and From Time loads incorrectly
When configuring a banner, it is possible to set a to- and from-time when the banner can be displayed. Setting and saving these times work OK.
The times are stored as specified (assumed local time for server)

However, when the settings are reloaded/reviewed, the times seems to auto-adjust the times, based on an assumption that the times are stored in UTC.
I am in the GMT+2 timezone, thus both times are incremented by 2 hours when they are reloaded.

Unless this error is detected and manually corrected before re-saving, the time settings will be altered. This will occur every time.

Integration with MantisBT
I would like to suggest an enhancement to TikiWiki 8 to integrate with MantisBT. Specifically the desired outcome would be:

(1) A single sign-on. If you are logged into to TW, you are logged into Mantis and visa versa;
(2) A unified view of user. If you are a registered user on the TW, then you are a user on Mantis and visa versa. Creating an account on TW also creates an account on Mantis.
(3) Either a center module to deliver Mantis content or a menu link to take you to the linked Mantis website.
(4) Users can create links between forum topics and Mantis bugs. Each forum topic links to zero or one Mantis Issue, and each Mantis Issue links to zero or more TW forum topics.
(5) Develop a TikiWiki syntax enhancement to enable users to easily reference Mantis bugs by Bug ID.

Cant add modules in Tiki8
I upgraded my Tiki from 4 to 8. Perhaps it was premature to upgrade a busy Tiki with many users to Tiki8. Anyway, I found a few issues. I am not sure if they would be characterised as bugs, or just stuff that has not yet been implmented. Here are the issues:

(1) The login prompt kept floating around the screen, appearing and disappearing in random places at random times, so I went to Admin-Modules to try to fix it.

(2) The next issue, is that in Admin-Modules, the tabs do not work. Clicking on a tab does nothing. Fortunately, I can proceed by clicking on the "No-tabs" button. Good idea that.

(3) Editing the login module didnt seem to help. So I came up with a cunning plan: Delete the module and then add it back in again. In hindsight, that was a pretty risky thing to do in beta software.

(4) I deleted the login module, but now I cannot add it back in! According to the instruction text, new modules can be dragged from the "All Modules" tab. But this either doesnt work or has not yet been implemented.

My Tiki is at http://lockbox.seanbdurkin.id.au

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:)

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: recur, but not by date; rather, they recur by designated weekday
Congratulations on the work put in on the calendar. I love the recurring event feature!

Of course there is always more: I would like to be able to post an event that recurs, for example, the second Saturday of each month.

Currently, I can only post an event that recurs by date. Many of the events that I post occur on the first Wednesday of the month, or the second Thursday. They recur, but not by date; rather, they recur by designated weekday.

Thanks for any help you can provide on this.

P.S. Also, some events occur the same time each weekday (but not Saturday or Sunday). Providing for weekday recurrance would be a nice addition as well, but less important than the above.

Completely multilingual Tiki not just Wiki
I wish the wonderful multilingual features that the Wiki side of
TikiWiki has were available/applied consistently throughout the Tiki package.

So, it works really well to view wiki pages in your own languages,
translate into others and keep these in sync collaboratively.

While you stay in the Wiki side of things.

As soon as you leave to use files, forums and FAQs etc. etc. multilingual is patchy at best.

I'd like to be confident that whatever feature I enable, its possible
for all content in that feature to be truly multilingual.

In Tiki 2.4 the syntax below work:

~np~{img src="img/wiki_up/cabeçalho" }~/np~

In Tiki 6.4 and trunk it doesn't (I haven't tested with other versions).

The problem is the special character "ç" in the image file name.

This bug was introduced in r22212 (http://tikiwiki.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/tikiwiki?view=revision&revision=22212). If you remove the call to htmlentities() the problem is solved but I'm assuming this function is there for a reason.

File type detection does not work when uploading images bundled in a zip file

Reporting this bug, which is apparently still present.
Other users are facing that issue: http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.comp.cms.tiki.user

When uploading a bundle of images contained in a zip file, and selecting the option "Unzip zip files", all the images are well extracted and added to the gallery. However, the file type (in my case png, but I guess this is the case for all file types) is not reconize and the files have the type "application/octet-stream". Consequently, inserting the image in a wiki document for exemple, and changing its size, will produce the message "File is not an image"

I was able to reproduce it on tiki 7.2. Attached some screenshots of the problem.

Read-only mode (ex.: when migrating a Tiki to a new server and you want the old one to still show content but not have edits)
We have a site_closed preference which is very useful.

However, this permits only the admins to access the site.

What if we want a read-only mirror?

It would be nice to a have a preference for this, along with a message to users: "This site is in read-only" and admins could change this message to indicate where the live site is.

Perhaps it could be interesting to check if the mysql user is "read only" as well...

This could also be interesting if a project is completed and we want to keep a site an an archive but no longer have any changes.

Things like tiki-logs, date of last login, etc. will need to considered.

Perhaps there could be a check: If current users has an edit/add permission (we'd have to make a list), then, he gets a warning that site is read-only (a message that the admin could change) and that any changes will be lost.

Tabs in the Admin interface don't work in Chrome
The tabs in the administrative interface use an onclick to run some AJAX code to change the interface. The problem is that they don't work in Chrome 17. They seem to work fine in Chrome 16.

More strangely, the method signatures of the tikitabs function actually appears quite different between the two browsers.

On Chrome 17 it is

function tikitabs(focus,max,ini) {
var didit = false, didone = false;
if (!ini) {
ini = 1;

function tikitabs( focus, tabElement) {

The problem appears to be that the ini variable is not set, so it we set the ini to 1, then it skips down all the way to if (didone && ...) which gets bypassed, and we exit right away.

Why do you have different code for different versions of the same browser?

Login problem for admin - need a full reset -
After 8.1 installation, I need a long time to be able to login as admin (not tested till now for other, two many problems to solve, test are programmed).
I was upgrading data from 7.2.

In fact the lonely way needs all these steps :
- clear all local cookies
- clear caches of server (temp/cache; module/cache)
- reinit as new (tiki.sql and some complements as the length of passw is we don't change the admin pass, no object, the SQL import file reset admin user and checks admin configuration)

Then when you login admin admin you are normally asked to set a new password, as for new installation. Everything seems OK, it is not true.
!!!~~#F00:__If you quit the browser you will be reconnected automatically even though "you have not checked remember me".
!!!~~#F00:But if you quit~~, for example to login for test with another login (the reason why for dev I don't check remember me) ~~#F00:and try to reconnect you get __"Invalid login or password"__ ~~

No other solution than a full reinit of admin login.
I checked :__
*clear local cookie alone : no result
*clear only tiki caches : no result
*clear cookies and cache (the db data are good for admin identification) : no result
*clear cookies, caches, reset admin as new install : OK

Fixed width for layout (for style which support) when changed parameters in admin module don't functions and always generates more than full width
The default value for styles which supports "fixedwidth" parameter title "layout... " is 990px.

This option is useful and should be included in a module (I will do when if will function globally). Depending of the job done 990px on a 1920 is often a straight workplace.

If it is activated and you set any value you will get as the option "fullwidth".

This option make a wrong calculus of the real available width (a problem with js functions and margins) and generate a larger layout that the width of the display device.

Do anybody works on this problem ?

Several solutions can be studied and combined :
# __embed these "tables" into tables__ so that they can't overlap but have hscroll (with all fields for selection). This is technically valid but __not at all sufficient because it is unusable__ quite heavy... but can be useful to have studied for later
# Add table with a minimum of 9 cells :
** Title and fields which fits the center column (col2) on span 2 c
** Empty
** second tr :
*** The title of element
*** content table with span 2 c and hscroll
** third tr
*** Footer span 2c (width of col2
*** Empty
# Cut the bottom of middle (col1,2,3) overlapping centered and use 100% width of screen, with automatic hscrool if too large with standard browser zooming
# The same hiding the "middle" (basic col 1,2,3) : needs to display the header with 100% width, and a new content header (enhance all styles to be able with good reliability to hide cols - a good check).
# use solution of "embed table" but with a "button to swap" to full width layout fitting the width of the screen
# option for automatic swap to full width when large tables are displayed
# swap fullscreen for tables described above

Spreadsheets can nevertheless be viewed by editing them, if the user has the appropriate permission." Same thing happened when you integrated cells in wiki page. In 8.2 that problem was fixed, but now whet i type something like

Linking ItemsList to ItemsList fails
I tried this on the community forum but got no response.

I've found a problem with interlinked trackers that shows up when you look at the items.

Tracker "Course Type" has fields
F1 Course Type Name: Text
F2 Course Duration: Text

Tracker "Scheduled Courses" has fields
F3 Course Reference: Text
F4 Course Type Name: Item Link to F1
F5 Course Duration: Items List to F2 using F1,F4
F6 Course Start Date: Date

Tracker "Attendee Registrations" has fields
F7 Course Reference: Item Link to F3
F8 Course Duration: Items List to F5 using F3,F7
F9 Course Start Date: Items List to F6 using F3,F7

This mostly works, except when I view the items in the third tracker field F8 is blank

This is an ItemsList to an ItemsList to a Text field.
At each level there is only one result - the second tracker works fine

In addition, a TrackerList or TrackerItemField that should return the value of F8 also fails and while a Trackerlist that should return F7 works fine, a Trackeritemfield that should return F7 does not work.

Having delved into the code it looks like the cases where a tracker list points to a tracker list is just not handled well. There is clearly a need to recursively resolve the value to display (and how to display it) but this is not being done.

I'll continue to work on the code and see if I can solve it but wondered it anyone more familiar with the code is working on this or knows how to fix it quickly.

Many thanks

To reproduce, search "wiki" in the admin panel here:

And you will get:

Ideally, the problem is solved, but this is maybe tricky. It could be related to:

{QUOTE(replyto="http://framework.zend.com/manual/1.11/en/zend.search.lucene.index-creation.html")}"Zend_Search_Lucene uses flock() to provide concurrent searching, index updating and optimization. According to the PHP » documentation, "flock() will not work on NFS and many other networked file systems. Do not use networked file systems with Zend_Search_Lucene."{QUOTE}

CODE plugin causes edit plugin to fail.
The wiki "edit plugin" feature fails when the CODE plugin is used to quote a plugin that is used further down the page. "edit plugin" is not properly ignoring the contents of the CODE plugin.

For example, if I have the following in a wiki page:




If I click the "edit plugin" button to change {EQUATION()}B{EQUATION} -> {EQUATION()}D{EQUATION}, instead the edit is applied to the EQUATION plugin in the CODE block, resulting in:




The "edit plugin" function is apparently counting the number of EQUATION() plugins when it edits and is not properly skipping the ones embedded in the CODE plugin.

__unified_incremental_update doesn't check for feature_search__

Unified Search with Lucene is awesome and is "the future of Tiki".

Now, on certain server configurations, it doesn't work well. An easy workaround is to simply revert to the legacy MySQL Full Text Search.

However, even when using MySQL Full Text Search, unified_incremental_update is defaulted to yes, and tried to update Lucene index, and generates an error message

Workaround is to deactivate unified_incremental_update, or even better, upgrade to 12.x and use Unified Index, with MySQL as storage.
Update: this issue has been reproduced in 12.x svn (and untested in 14.x so far, afaik) also with Mysql Full Text Search as unified search engine (on a multitiki install). See: [item5673] . {sign user="xavi" datetime="2015-05-19T09:10:57+00:00"}

Unable to view tracker rss seed
We just updated our tikiwiki from 6.2 to 8.3 and came across a difficulty when viewing the rss-seed of tracker items. We cloned the database and have not changed anything about permissions, but it seems that only people from a certain group (and admin) can view the rss seed of the tracker while logged in, while others can't. This wasn't previously the case.

We kept the old wiki (6.2) and the tracker rss seed works. See for the example:

The rss tracker in the new wiki doesn't. See:

Both have a different database, but they are identical. Also all the permissions concerning trackers are identical.

Is this a bug or has the functionality of the tracker changed? Tried to search in the tikiwiki and bug-reports but couldn't find anything.

EDIT: Apparently this wasn't working in 6.2 either but we created a workaround for it, which also seem to work for 8.3 (see below).

FAQ won't list
FAQs do not appear in the 'list FAQs page' tiki-list_faqs.php
"No records found."

This bug is visible with fresh install 8.3
or content upgraded from 6.6 to 8.3.
(feature work ok in 6.6)

Adding a new FAQ work (the new entry is seen in database with select * from tiki_faqs;)
but it will not display in the FAQs list either.

Looking at the PHP code, it seems it is a permission problem.

in tikilib.php
function list_faqs()
code below: //FIXME Perm:filter ?

By removing the test on permission :
if ($objperm['tiki_p_view_faqs'] == 'y')
the FAQs do appear correctly.

It could be related with the 6.6->8.3 changes in user_lib.php function get_permissions() or the
way FAQs permissions are retrieved with tikilib.php
$objperm = $this->get_perm_object($res['faqId'], 'faq', '', false);.

They are quite a number of other //FIXME Perm:filter ? comments in the tikilib.php,
so it is possible that this bug affects other features (or is already reported!)

Avoid breaking the layout when there is some very long text (ex,: URLs)
"htmlwrap() is a function which wraps HTML by breaking long words and preventing them from damaging your layout. This function will NOT insert <br /> tags every "width" characters as in the PHP wordwrap() function. HTML wraps automatically, so this function only ensures wrapping at $width characters is possible. Use in places where a page will accept user input in order to create HTML output like in forums or blog comments.

This function will not insert line breaks within HTML tags or HTML entities such as  . It treats all HTML entities as single characters, when taking them into account for string length. It will also attempt to find logical line-break insertion points (like after periods or slashes) before inserting breaks at $width characters."

Auto-create corresponding categories not working properly
Steps in 6.3:
*create tracker, set Auto-create corresponding categories
*define tracker_item like name, add two items.
As result category is created (as tracker name) and items are added as subcategories:

*Informatics Projects(0/1)
** Item1(0/0)
** Item2(1/1)

Same steps in 8.3, result:

*Tracker 1
**Tracker Item
***Name Type Category
***# Projects tracker item Tracker Item
***# Projects tracker item Tracker Item

Result, instead of tracker name category 'Tracker 1' was created, than subcategory 'Tracker Item' and empty object inside, displayed as table with links to non existing "http://localhost/tiki/tiki-view_tracker_item.php?trackerId=1&itemId="

LDAP Group Synchronisation broken
With revision 31581 the LDAP group synchronisation has been limited to only happen 60 seconds after the login:


So far as I can see this method is only called during the LDAP login procedure, so the if-statement in line 1415 will always be false, thus no synchronisation will happen.

I checked this problem with 7.1, 7.2 and 8.3 and never succeded to get the groups from an AD although the LDAP login worked. After disseminating the code and removing this if-statement the feature works again.

I wonder what the the use of this if-statement was? The commit message refers to webdav changes - how does it affect this?
Can this statement be removed so LDAP group synchronisation works or is there another way to fix this?
tracker item
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.

Fix dependency of LDAP group sync to external directory
LDAP group synchronisation is dependent on the "corresponding user attribute", a setting which is only needed if an external directory is used for group synchronisation.

The fix is simple - the combination of if-staments just need to be adjusted slightly - see patch.

Enhancement: Add option to select whether LDAP group synchronisation creates new groups or only sync existing ones
When groups are synchronised with a big LDAP organisation many empty groups may end up in Tikiwiki.

This enhancement / patch adds an option to let the administrator of a tikiwiki instance decide whether during synchronisation of groups only the user assignments to existing groups will be done or if non-existent groups will be created in tikiwiki.

The default behaviour - as of now - is that when a LDAP user logs in all the groups he belongs to will be created in tikiwiki and he is being added as a member of these groups.

This enhancement adds the preference "ldap_create_groups_tiki" which is "y" by default - which corresponds to the current behaviour.

If "ldap_create_groups_tiki" is set to "n" and a LDAP user logs in the group synchronisation process will silently ignore groups that exist in LDAP but not in tikiwiki. Existing groups will be synced, though.

Unable to upload files larger then ~30Mb
Uploading a file larger then around 30Mb results in an endless view of "Uploading file..." while the upload was actually finished. Found a previous ticket about this problem explaining that an invisible error is shown. It is assumed that this error has something to do with settings of upload_max_filesize or other settings in php.ini. See ticketID 4107.

However, this is clearly not the problem here. Especially since our old wiki (6.2) (which uses the same configuration and php) has no problems uploading files. So this sounds more like a bug in tikiwiki 8.3, then an wrong setting in the configuration files. I also checked all of our .htaccess files, which do not overrule the settings of php.ini.

Because the uploads do work in 6.2, but it doesn't in 8.3, I fear it is a bug in the new tikiwiki.

If there are more places that I could check that may cause the problem, please let me know. The upload feature on our wiki is quite important, so I would like to find a solution as soon as possible.


Edit: It seems that when I upload a small file, which gives no problems, and then replace this file with an other file of 50Mb, then there is no problem.

Edit2: It seems that the upload is also dependent on the memory_limit value, but this should not be the case. At least, it wasn't before. When the memory_limit is increased larger files can be uploaded. We had set our memory_limit to 64Mb, which allowed an upload of files around the 30 Mb (probably 32?), so there may be a factor two involved.

After an upgrade (7.2 to 8.1 and 8.3 or 8.x RC 8.4) the admin can't login anymore in some situations
!!!After upgrade the admin can't login anymore

!!!The failure sequence :
#Create a new directory or repository for the new version
#Update with your files (particularly images or icons)
#Site enable (example a sub-domain) on Apache
#Copy the database on new name
#Install manually .htaccess (compare and insert your valid options )
#Update "local.php"
#run <your new domain>/tiki-install.php. Goto the end (note an error occurs if your say at the end "run tiki" without locking or not because tiki-setup tries to re-open a session already automatically opened by installer). You just launch again (default tiki-index)
#~~#F00:__Try to login as admin : You will be rejected as wrong password __~~

!!Analysis - many possible reasons :
There are a lot of reasons to be in this situations. So to be successful a lot of conditions must be satisfied :

#If your new version uses the same current domain (after upgrade for my own I defines the same "servername" as current one and then keep the other when a particular name containng the version :
- The Cookies of session will try to reconnect an older version and a trace shows that the password is not the one you have given (generally empty). So the cookies of the site name must be cleared on your navigator

#The temp files or session table contain too wrong data : they must be cleared on server for your current copy (SVN update case)

#Your admin record in user_user record contains sessions data : they create a conflict which makes crash your login

#Be careful of the fact that you can have an open session in your navigator with the same site (sometimes we uses a lot of tab management which can create this : on firefox use showcase and search to clear your old sessions

#Generally avoid these problem is sufficient but at the end you will be prompt to update your password (as for the first login as admin with password admin). This can fail for the following reason : if the .htaccess is not set or modrewrite not well operational the <site name> will include the "port" used by your server. If your NAT translates the port address (i.e. 80-> 4397) you will get the following url <site>:4397/.... which fails

It is sure that if you use only one site close everything and upgrade you will get the minimum of problems but you will get someone anywhere.

!!~~#099:This situation is common and complex for whom have to manage product and data migration from one version (or several) of tiki to a new one.~~
It is not seen generally by developers, because it is not at all their common upgrade process nor test.

Tracker Import from csv does not set created and lastModif properly
Importing tracker items through CSV only sets the created and lastModif value properly if the dates from the CSV file are in the numerical php date format.

When you import a csv file where the created and lastModif dates are written as proper dates, the imported tracker items have a created and lastModif date/timestamp of the date & time of the import action.

example csv :

"itemId","status","created","lastModif","VRID -- 265"
"849","o","07/12/2009 13:24","07/12/2009 13:24","4"

Whenever I export a csv file, it contains the dates as shown above, so you can't just export data and import data on the fly without modifying all the values...

Exporting Spreadsheets as csv
In the version 8.3 there are some errors if one wants to export a spreadsheet

The first one appears if one click on the export button. An error () shows up.
I have tried to fix it by inserting the code
"$sheetlib = TikiLib::lib("sheet");" at the line 11 of the "tiki-export_sheet.php" file.

After this fix the export menu appears but exporting the spreadsheet as csv file does not work. (exporting as V 1.0 does not work either, exporting as TikisheetFile V.1 seams to work)
For the case of exporting as csv: After clicking on the "Export" button, the browser ask for saving the file. Depending on the option I choose for saving ("Save as" or "DownloadThemAll") different behavior are observed:
* Save as: A file of 0kB is downloaded (for info the .tws file as 141kb)
* DownloadThemAll an "Server error*" error is shown in the program.

"Change" and "Save" buttons are missing when typing a "new wiki page" name with forbidden chars (such as &) and proceeding to the editor-page for this site.
After clicking "create new wiki page", i typed a name for this site containing a forbidden char (in this case "&"). I prompted this entry (not knowing this char is forbidden) to add content to this page.

the "invalid character" field popped up and forced me to rename the page. looked similar to the normal "rename page" input, but without a button to "save" the change.

unfortunately, the save button was also missing in the editor field for my new page and "previewing" the new site didn't change anything in this behaviour.

so in the end - content as well as the page were lost.

please add "save" buttons to this areas.

Path for file upload can't be changed
I'm am experiencing a severe problem about my files upload path: I once must have set the path to the absolute path "/files/uploads". When I now try to
* change the path to a relative path like "files/uploads" or "./files/uploads"
* change the path to the correct abs path like "/var/htdocs/wiki/files/uploads"
* change the file storage to database

nothing else happens. It keeps trying (and failing) to upload to the path "/files/uploads". The only workaround currently was to create the path "/files/uploads" so that tiki can upload files into that directory (what really strikes me, I don't want a /files directory in my root). But even after this workaround I cannot change my path or change to database storage.

Please help. Thanks.

Tiki 8.3 | Tiki Importer - Doesn’t import mediawiki xml file - no error displayed

i am pretty new to tikiwiki (please point my to any guides if i am missing something here) and currently testing the 8.3 release.
As i do have several mediawiki installations it is a must for me to be able to import data from mediawiki to tiki.

I did export an .xml file via dumpBackup.php from one of my mediawikis which resulted in a 85mb file - which opens without errors in a random selected webbrowser.

As a next step i tried to use the Tiki Importer.
- Choosed source type (mediawiki) & pressed ok & got forwarded to next page
- used the default selections (uncheck, uncheck, 1, option 3) & selected the xml local file -> pressed the 'import' button
- warning id displayed that a script will be started and may take some time & that i should have a backup -> i do select 'OK' here

-> 3 sec later i am back at the start page of the tiki importer.

- no error is displayed
- no import is done

- is that function supposed to work?
- could it be related to the size of the xml file? even then i would consider an error.
- can i offer any additional informations?

best regards in advance

seems to be related with the size of the .xml file.

case 1: small file - around 1 MB -> worked (i do see a progress window)
case 2: big file - around 85 MB -> failed - see above for a detailed description)

Main problem i do see here is that in case 2 the user/admin gets no feedback at all.

PATCH: messu-compose hangs on french locale
When attempting to send messages to other tiki users whilst working in french locale, the messu-compose.tpl script hangs.

The problem is due to the different interpretation of commas and semicolons on french and english locales. The call to the quickhint (popup help) feature hardcodes the commas and semicolons, and this frustrates the french locale.

PATCH: wikiplugin_userlist.php handles privileges the opposite way
When using the UserList plugin, the links on the user names leading to their personal information pages, are shown and hidden depending on privileges of the logged in user. Unfortunately, the logic is reverse of what it should be.

Correct logic is: show links for all users that when either A.) You have admin privileges. B.) User listed is yourself. C.) User listed has chosen to make his profile information public.

Current logic is: show links when A.) You have admin privileges. B.) User listed is NOT yourself, AND user listed has chosen NOT to make his information public.

LDAP/Active Directory Multiple Domain Support
I am referencing forum post: https://tiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_parentId=43682&topics_offset=1

I would like the ability for users in child domains to access the TikiWiki site the same way users in the parent site are able to access it. According to the forum post, "Tiki is not currently capable of authenticating against multiple domains (or multiple LDAP servers)" and "The code could be modified to search, say, the global catalog for the user's DN and then authenticate against the corresponding domain, but this would be custom coding"

I would like an option to specify multiple domains, or a custom code I could use to search the global catalog for the user's DN.

Basically I want all of my users in all of my offices to access the Tiki site. Not just the home office users.

Insert image wysiwyg chrome
This is a minor issue, and not sure if it something for tiki or google to fix. However I try to push Chrome as the default browser in my school because we use Google apps and it works better for that.
I don’t want to have to tell my users they need to switch browsers to insert an image. This will not get tiki accepted very fast.

I have tested this on a fresh install of 8.3, svn pre8.4, and svn pre9.0

I am on a windows 7 system with Chrome 18, Firefox 11 and IE9.
In wiki syntax mode the file galary image selector works fine.

In WYSIWYG mode the image slector works fine in Firefox and IE, in Chrome I have a new window that tries to open. The window is listed in the task bar but I cannot access it.

I have turned off pop up blockers and disabled all extensions while testing with the same result.

I have also tried from different computers.

Compare generated HTML for all *.tiki.org sites between versions (to check for regressions/changes of behavior)
Some changes in Tiki code (especially the parser) between versions cause slight changes of behavior. Devs have no comprehensive way to test the result of a change on a large data set.

We have a large data set with all *.tiki.org sites.

Similar to ((tw:Pre-Dogfood servers)), we could have a script which checks the HTML output for all wiki pages for a given version, and compare this to another version.

And thus, we can check if this is a desired behavior.

The HTML entities change in Tiki9 would be a great 1st test of this. It would have been nice to have it for UTF-8 changes in Tiki5 as well...

This should be done as part of the script for ((tw:Pre-Dogfood servers)) so we have daily reports on issues. (and we know that it's the same data)

Tracker WYSIWYG Field Broken If Another Field Has "Add New Item.." Script
If you create a tracker with one field which is a text area set to WYSIWYG, plus another field which is an Item Link that has the "Add Items" options set, the WYSIWYG editor will not load using the TRACKER module. It must be a conflict in the two scripts. Disabling the "Add Items" option allows the WYSIWYG editor to load fine.

Category field does not handle 0 as Parent Category
When 0 is put in the Parent Category option of the Category field, no category selection is offered in the item creation form.
Even for admin.

This makes it impossible to offer a way of selecting first-level categories in tracker items.

So, tracker items can not be categorised in the first-level categories that way.

I suppose the workaround would be to create a useless category and put all the others as children. Nobody will figure that out and it is uselessly complicated

Plugin Lastmod
Plugin Lastmod does not default to current page when page name is not specified.

The documentation for the [http://doc.tiki.org/PluginLastmod|Lastmod Plugin] says if you don't specify the page name, Lastmod defaults to the current page.

From forum [https://tiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_parentId=40353&post_reply=1&comments_threshold=0&comments_reply_threadId=43856&comments_offset=0&thread_sort_mode=commentDate_asc&comments_per_page=20&comments_grandParentId=40353&thread_style=commentStyle_threaded#form|thread] posted by user TomJarvis:

I have now tested:
in the HomePage of Tiki versions 2 through 9.

In each version of Tiki, the plugin with the pagename specified worked correctly (other than the '%0' in Tiki 2 mentioned in the documentation).

When Lastmod is coded without specifying the page name, the current date and time are returned in Tiki versions 2 through 6, and nothing at all is returned in Tiki versions 7 through 9.

There appears to be a problem with how the Lastmod plugin get the page name when it is not specified.

This is a bug that could be reported. The workaround is to specify the page name.

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??--

Limited number of single nested plugins, which should not be limited
When you place more then 167 nested plugins of for example DIV (so not nested in nested in nested..., just plugins with only one nested plugin each). It will eventually not parse the plugin anymore.


The result will be:


This is due to a counter (passes) within the PluginMatcher.php which is limited to 500. But I'm guessing this counter is meant to avoid 500 nested in nested in nested in nested...etc (which indeed make sense to me), but not that this keeps counting when you start a new plugin.

I think there should be some attention to the levels. It seems that level zero is the whole text and that level one is simply the detection of the plugin, level two is the detection of a nested plugin, level 3 is the detection of a nested in nested plugin etc.

I haven't figured it out completely, but I have found a workaround to make the counter count as espected. But this is again a workaround and a real solution is needed.

Edit: More info...it "goes wrong" when the performReplace function is called, which itself calls the getSubMatcher function again, which increases the level (for which I believe should not happen the first time it is called). Whithin the findMatches (which also calls the getSubMatcher) there is a test whether the $this->level is empty and if so, the passes-counter is restored to zero. This test is missing within performReplace, but should maybe also be added? The problem is then that the passes-counter should be also known by the other functions. Shouldn't be difficult to do.

Nested equal plugins are not detected correctly in plugin-edit mode.
When nested divs (or other nested plugins of equal name) need to be edited, the edit-plugin-window, does not detect the plugins beginning and ending correctly. Eg:
{CODE()}1. {DIV()}
2. {DIV()}want to edit the nested plugin{DIV}
3. {DIV}{CODE}

If your mouse is within the "want to edit the nested plugin" text and you select the plugin-type because you want to edit using the gui (usefull if the text is quite long), it will pop-up the gui with the text:

~np~{DIV()}want to edit the nested plugin~/np~

Thus it detected the ending of the plugin which started at line 1, to end in line 2, which is not correct. Also, when the mouse is within a nested plugin, the gui should detect the beginning of the plugin in line 2, instead of line 1.

Hope this make sense...quite an annoying behaviour.

Quick Edit (both module & from List Pages) bypasses category permissions when improper case used.
Typing a page into Quick Edit, either in the Quick Edit module (I know it is depreciated but was testing this as well) or from the Create a Wiki Page tab on the List Wiki Pages seems to bypass category permissions and allows editing of pages which should be locked for the user. This happens if the page which is entered does not EXACTLY match the case of the existing page.
For example, in Global Permissions, Registered Users have Edit permissions; a category Alpha has Edit permissions assigned only to group Alpha, Registered Users have no edit permissions on this category. A page called Alpha exists in category Alpha. If a Registered User who is not part of group Alpha tries to create/edit page "Alpha", they receive the proper error about not having permissions to edit the page. Should that same user try to create/edit page "ALPHA", "alpha" or any variation which does not match exactly "Alpha", they will be allowed to edit the existing page "Alpha". This will also work if they enter the URL to edit the page directly with a different case (i.e. "tiki-editpage.php?page=Alpha" will prevent editing whereas "tiki-editpage.php?page=ALPHA" will allow editing).

Newsletter - problem in get_all_subscriber when login name contains uppercases
A user registered himself, and chooses as login a name with uppercases (Stephane).

Two newsletter are created, with different subscriptions:
1) group subscription, including the aforementioned user
2) user self subscribe

When sending newsletter 1, the email is sent to the user.
When sending newsletter 2, the email address of the user is not found in the database and cannot be sent (despite finding the correct number of subscribers)

I traced it to two libraries:
first in ./lib/newsletter/nllib.php, in the function get_all_subscriber, we can see in the first part of the function how the email adresses are collected based on the subscribed groups. The select is mostly direct, and gets the correct information.
Later in the function (line 215 and following), individual users are added to the list of emails. Line 218, the "email" from the table tiki_newsletter_subscriptions (which is the login for registered users) is brought to lower case. (Note: I'm not sure, but it could be that the subscription module also puts the login in lower case in that table...)
Finally, line 232, the function get_user_email uses as parameter this lowercase login name to find out the actual email address.

This function is defined in the library ./lib/userlibs.php on line 5581.
This function compares the login passed as parameter to the login in the users_users table, but with a "binary" comparison, i.e. case sensitive! Removing the binary keyword lets the newsletter module find the correct user, and then its email.

Calendar Displays Wrong Date. Events Jump Around
The calendar Week view shows an entry one day BEHIND the event's actual date. The Day view and Month view are correct. See this example. The entry is correct, the event begins and ends on the 26th and this shows in the sidebar module and the month view, but the Week view (which the module displays when you click on an entry) is wrong.

Now the event is jumping around in the calendar, and the calendar thinks it is now tomorrow. After using the site for awhile, just adding an article and reading some pages, suddenly the Calendar is wrong.
The Event has NOT been edited by anyone, yet it has changed.

Also notice in Week View the event now appears in the past, and --the calendar thinks today is tomorrow. -- The "today" display was caused by the time/date setting being set to a different time zone. The rest is still wrong.

Calendar: Completely unusable.
