"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.

Send custom email (by admin to new user or user that has not connected in a while)
I would like a way to invite people to come to a Tiki site after I have added their login. (different of the use where people self-register)

Right now, I simulate a lost password message (which I customize).

Maybe this could become a new feature available to admins when

1- after a successful user creation at tiki-adminusers.php
2- when administering a user account
3- from : tiki-adminusers.php with the batch command to send to many new users.

The system would send an email with a one-click login and be sent to the user tracker

Person who triggers this email alert should be in BCC. (to have a trace). Even better would be to have this logged somewhere but this could be for phase 2.

We could have a new mail template in templates/mail/welcome_message.tpl or in a wiki page (better!)

Import phpBB data
phpBB is a popular open source forum software.
Sometimes, a forum is not enough.
So, the data must be migrated from phpBB to Tiki forums...

If you want to help:
Please post links to similar scripts.

If/when we do a script, we should do for all major forums.
__From kerrnel22 on 11/20/07:__

I have almost completed an integrated TikiWiki forum migration tool for 1.9.8.x and 1.10. Initial release will be to migrate only Tiki forums from one Tiki install to another. However, hooks are in place, and the intention is there, to work on extending the migration tool to importing of phpBB2 (or any other forum software) into Tiki. If you would like more information, email tiki.kerrnel@kerris.com. I expect a general release of the forum migration tool (for Tiki forums only) into cvs of both branches for beta testing by December 1/07. If all goes well, I'll have something released for phpBB2 migration prior to Dec 31.

Initial homepage cannot be set for first view of anonymous viewer
When I set the homepage in Administration: General Preferences to "Articles" (which is what I want the homepage to be for both anonymous and registered visitors), the initial viewing for "anonymous" displays a homepage of "wiki".

When I set the homepage in Administration: General Preferences to Group homepage and then set the two group homepages to a typed-in "Articles" in the empty field and then log in as any user, the display is "No page 'Articles' found".

When I set the homepage in Administration: General Preferences to Group homepage and then set the two group homepages to a custom URL (http://www.progressiveomaha.com/tikidir/tiki-view_articles.php), the display is "no such page found".

One day I thought maybe the problem had to do with using Firefox on a Linux box, because my ancient Windows 98/IE machine brought up 'Articles' as the home page.

The next day both machines bring up the Wiki page as the home page. This is with the homepage set to 'Articles' in Admin-General.

Maybe I should be clear that I am refering to which page is brought up when TikiWiki is first accessed (from www.progressiveomaha.com/tikidir/).external link Once I have logged in as a user, I will access the 'Articles' homepage whether returning as another user or as anonymous. The problem only occurs on that initial anonymous access, and only after TikiWiki has had time to "forget" any earlier logons by that user.

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.

Admin modules: Assign user module links broken
When clicking the Assign white plus sign on green background icon in Admin modules User modules tab, PostgreSQL fails complaining:

The following error message was returned:

ERROR: invalid input syntax for integer: "mnu_application_menu"

The query was:
select * from "tiki_modules" where "moduleId"=?


1. mnu_application_menu

The built query was likely:
select * from "tiki_modules" where "moduleId"='mnu_application_menu'

* /var/www/tiki/trunk/tiki-admin_modules.php : 0 -> {main}(array ( ))
* /var/www/tiki/trunk/tiki-admin_modules.php : 63 -> get_assigned_module(array ( 'moduleId' => '\'mnu_application_menu\'', ))
* /var/www/tiki/trunk/lib/modules/modlib.php : 60 -> query(array ( 'query' => '\'select * from `tiki_modules` where `moduleId`=?\'', 'values' => 'array (0 => \'mnu_application_menu\')', 'numrows' => '', 'offset' => '', 'reporterrors' => '', ))

Indeed, the query would expect an integer argument, not a string. This is a regression from r8873, which changed modlib's interface. get_assigned_module() now expects its first argument to be a moduleId, not a module name.

Admin option to force newly created pages to be part of the structure they were created from
Guys, I have to set up a company wiki, which is completely structured from top to bottom. So I noticed a very annoying thing about tiki.

Currently if you want to create a page, that is destined to be part of a structure, you have to create it using the navigation bar and set the option "as child".

But what if a user creates a new page from within a structred wiki page? I.E. If he simply sets up a new link to an non existing site. The new page is created as an orphan which is definitely a "no go" for a completely structured wiki. Pages like this have to be manually assigned to a structure by the admin.

So I request an option, that __forces pages created from within a page in a structure to be automatically part of the same structure__.

I guess even in pages like doc.tw.org this 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.

After setting auth to active directory/ldap - can't log in as admin now
Upgraded a test/development site from 1.9.9 to 1.10beta1. Trying to get ldap authentication working to an active directory server. After configuring for ldap auth to AD - with 'use tiki for admin auth' checked - now I cannot log in as the admin user. The AD server is taking a really long time to respond, it's at another location - so it always times out. Unfortunately the Tiki site seems to keep trying LDAP and timing out before it will check internally for the admin user. The net result... I'm currently locked out of my development/test Tiki site.

Button links broken on IIS installation
I have installed TikiWiki 3rc1 on an IIS (Windows Server 2003) installation with PHP 5 and MySQL. This is a root-level installation. For some reason having to change PATH_TRANSLATED to SCRIPT_FILENAME in line 31 of lib/setup/tikisetup.class.php, which if I don't do I get errors relating to directories not existing and the site not loading at all; this is not the purpose of the support request.

Once I make these tweaks, as well as after setting the tweaks identified in tiki-filter-base.php (that is, changing forward slashes to double-backslashes in quotes), I get the site up and running. ***But*** on administration pages, the buttons created by lib/smarty_tiki/function.button.php (such as "CLEAR CACHE" on the Modules admin page) don't seem to work when accessing the site from Safari or Firefox (Internet Explorer works fine for this).

Instead, in Safari, the clicking on the button will load the script name where the domain name is supposed to go; if my site was on http://site.com/somescript.php?something, it would load http://otherscript.php?something. I don't have my machine handy, so I can't get the Firefox results up at the moment, but IIRC they involved the format http://site.com/\/otherscript.php?something (with a backslash and forward-slash inserted).

A Linux installation of TW3 works fine in Safari and Firefox, so my guess is that it's an IIS issue that has something to do with backslashes and root-directory determination, but I'm somewhat clueless here. I've examined lib/smarty_tiki/block.self_link.php and some tweaking there has produced no viable results.

Also note that this goes away when TikiWiki 3 is placed into a non-root directory; it only affects a root installation at /, rather than at a server subdirectory.

# Click "Click here to confirm your action"
# Change email address from demo@demo.com to demo@demo.org
# Click "Save"

Would be even better to move all to tiki-admin.php?page=pagination

Easier setting of Sender Email
As suggested by Nyloth at TikiFest Strasbourg,

1- "Sender Email" could be set by default to no-reply@domain.tld
2- It could be requested as part of the install script.

Many features don't work well until it's set (ex.: Inter-User message, registration with email validation, etc)

Easier theme management for Tiki admins
These settings:
Slideshows theme:
here: tiki-admin.php?page=general

And theses ones:
Theme Control
General Layout options (all)
Edit Templates
Edit CSS
Tiki Template Viewing
Use Tabs
here: tiki-admin.php?page=features

And this one:
Reg. users can change theme:
here: tiki-admin.php?page=login

Should be added to a new admin tab "Theme & Layout":

IMHO, it is OK for options/settings to be in more than one admin panel, if relevant to both.

Easy way to compare configuration of 2 Tiki sites
How are the various *.tiki.org sites different in their configuration?

How about compared to the default setting?

How could we have a diff of 2 site's config? Perhaps this could be exported as a profile, and thus an easy way to "copy"/migrate configs from one site to another.

Ex.: in a staging & prod setup...

See: ((Configuration Management))

Email SMTP address reconization error
On the latest Beta Version of TikiWiki (5.0 Beta 2) the admin email settings under General option cannot set SMTP. This works fine in 4.x versions.

For example my smtp server address is auth.smtp.1and1.co.uk

Some how the number 1 here is translated to auth.smtp.oneandone.co.uk hence giving the error that the smtp is not valid.

Thank you.

error at admin > login showing list of themes: unserialize() at tiki-admin_include_login.php +
Switching language from admin panel produces blank page (tiki not showing) under some circumstnaces, along the last weeks (repeated today-13th june 2007 again with latest 1.9cvs code)

I have a selection (through "Admin > login") of themes chosen by admin to allow users to change among those themes.
Moreover, mod-switch_theme is assigned to registered users in left column.

From time to time, when I change the theme under "Admin > General", I get this message:

Notice: unserialize() [function.unserialize]: Error at offset 239 of 250 bytes in /home/httpd/tiki19/modules/mod-switch_theme.php on line 15
header already sent

plus a blank page. After that, I see on top of each page:

Notice: unserialize() [function.unserialize]: Error at offset 239 of 250 bytes in /home/httpd/tiki19/modules/mod-switch_theme.php on line 15
I cannot change the selecetion of themes any more through "Admin > login": I'm geeting
Notice: unserialize() [function.unserialize]: Error at offset 239 of 250 bytes in /home/httpd/tiki19/modules/mod-switch_theme.php on line 15

Notice: unserialize() [function.unserialize]: Error at offset 239 of 250 bytes in /home/httpd/tiki19/tiki-admin_include_login.php on line 522
on top of that page, and the selecetion of themes is not showing properly (names of themes), but it produces this hatml lines at that multiple selection box (taken from the html source of the page):

<b>Warning</b>: in_array() [<a href='function.in-array'>function.in-array</a>]: Wrong datatype for second argument in <b>/home/httpd/tiki19/templates_c/precarios/es^%%00^00C^00CB4449%%mod-switch_theme.tpl.php</b> on line <b>33</b><br />

(until I delete that selection directly from the db).

File Gallery directory field requires full path
Tested in v3.1. When choosing to store File Gallery items in a directory instead of the database, the directory field requires the full server path. If the abbreviated relative path to the wiki is entered, file uploads fail.

This conflicts with both doc.tw.o (as of today's rev) and Admin > Wiki, which allows the attachment directory to be specified relative to the wiki directory.

File Gallery errors & not able to set permissions as admin
> As admin, I can't set the permissions on Registered users to: list_file_galleries or create_file_galleries, though other file galleries settings are selected, including view_file_gallery, download_files, upload_files, view_fgal_explorer, and view_fgal_path. I tried to deselect that last 2 since I don't understand what the file gallery explorer is and I don't know that they need to view the path, but I can't seem to deselect and save it successfully.
> When I log in as a Registered user and click on File Galleries, I get this Error message: Permission denied you cannot view this section.
> I see a link for Upload file, but when I click on it, I get: No gallery available. You have to create a gallery first! Create New Gallery.
> When I click on Create New Gallery, it gives me this Error message: Permission denied you cannot view this section.

File Gallery: Batch upload (Unzip all zip files) should be optional
Right now, it's a group permission (tiki_p_batch_upload_files) but if I give tiki_p_admin_file_galleries, it included tiki_p_batch_upload_files, which is not always what I want. (It adds clutter to the interface, when uploading a file)

It should be an option here:

And maybe add a check to see if this is supported by the server (if easy)

Help URL's built incorrectly on tiki_admin.php pages
The URL's for the help buttons are not being built correctly. Users are unable to get help during the initial setup.

Tested on 1.10.0b1. To reproduce:
After a fresh install go to the Administration:Administration page
Click on the General icon.
Click on the help icon at the top of Administration General
The help URL will use the local host name instead of doc.tikiwiki.org

Other notes:
Help shows enabled on the features page (apparently enabled by default)
All pages reached through tiki-admin.php seem to have this problem

if the current user has admins permissions (tiki_p_admin)

Needs to handle more than one feature check.

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.
