"Allow others to post to this blog" should be possible to omit as an option when creating blogs
I use TikiWiki as a platform for teaching at the college level, and one of the main things I do is require that students create and maintain their own blogs -- each student has one blog and should post only to that blog. My suggestion is that although I understand why there's an initial option to "allow others to post to this blog" in the blog create dialogue box, it would be a good idea to leave this option's availability and visibility up to the administrator -- in my situation, this option, if accidentally checked by students, creates confusion at posting time. I don't want students to see this come up as an option when they create their personal blog.

All users can post in private blogs
I'm currently having a major problem after upgrading to 1.9.5 from 1.8. Apparently, now all users can post to all the blogs, whether they are marked public or not. I ran the various database upgrade scripts, but it doesn't seem to have an effect. Users can post to whatever blogs they want by using the blog pull-down menu in the blog posting/editing screen.

If the user clicks "list blogs," there are no options shown to post to the unauthorized blogs. This seems to be a problem with the "blog" dropdown bar in tiki-blog_post.php. Somehow it's bypassing the check and letting users post in whatever blogs they want...

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.

*[wish988|Forum: Let forum admins/moderators add groups and/or users as watching the forum]
*[tiki-index.php?page=Business%20Plans|Let small business start ups access collaborative sharing where the document being shared is not visible by anyone else]

Anywhere there is a watch eye, it should be possible for an admin to have group members watch this category

Adsense does not display
Google adsense does not display.
This error occurred in FiveAlive and "thenews".
I tried using "Banners".
I tried using "Template".
I tried using "Module: AdSense".
I tried using "Module: User".
I tried using "HTML plug in".

In an Article and Blog, I used the HTML plug in, authorized the HTML, and nothing displayed.

By experimentation, I added the carat (box) around the plug in, and it displayed in PREVIEW mode. But when I saved it, an empty box with no adsense text displayed. (No, the carat didn't trigger it, just was the reason I previewed it.)

"Allow HTML" box is checked.

When I look at the page source, the HTML is there.

~np~<script type="text/javascript"><!--

Edit blogs : the size of the panel is automatically smaller than the text width....
As the calculated size of the line, depends of the size of the panel (resizable) is wrong (too of some ... <unable to translate, in printing in french the length unit "point">).
Then the line is always too long of a few for the panel (words or half of words cut before splitting the line).

This makes the blog edition unusable in normal conditions because to edit a text we have to make horizontal scroll continuously.

Analysis : the calculation of the length of line written in text editors is always complex. Generally today there is no problem, but the system which is behind editors is very complex to take in account all display configurations.

Newsletter - Clipper - Articles - Blog
Hey there,

I know, that somebody (Xavi? Nelson?) is working on a functionality, called "Clipper", that should allow to choose certain articles headlines and to send them by newsletter.

I think it would be nice/importand to have the possibility, to send not only the header, but also the teaser for every article like the following:

author, date ...

next Headline

Plugins broken in Blog in 1.9.2
When putting a plugin onto a blog post which requires parameters, the parameters are not passed in or are passed in as an &. This happens when the => syntax is used, or quotes are used around the parameter. These are otherwise fine when in a wiki page.

Most plugins appear to be affected on my installation - which was an upgrade from 1.8.4 to 1.9.2.

They render okay when viewing individual posts, or previewing, which leads me to beleive it is in tiki-blog_view.php somewhere.

After diffing the files, the largest visible change was the addition of categories into the blog, this is however not affected by turning off the feature in admin.

I am putting this high on my own priority list as I cannot upgrade my live site to 1.9.2 (although it has had some secuirty fixes put on it) until this is solved as I do not want to break my history of blog posts using plugins.

Perhaps it is worth a shot on this site or tikiwiki.org to see if plugins are affected here as well with that.

Printing/ e-mailing Multiple Blog entries based on date
Hi there everyone, newbie calling.

I work in a technical operations area. Currently developing the wiki as a wiki for operational staff across various areas but thought I would use some more of the functions that are available.

As an operations area there is a requirement for logs to be written daily by operation staff across different departments and to be e-mailed to management staff.

My idea is to give each department (5 in total) a separate blog. Only members of each department can write to their blog but any member of each department can read the other blogs. So far so good. By tagging each entry searches across blogs can identify faults across departments. This works perfectly and therefore preferable to a forum based solution as I need it to be as simple as possible for the operational staff.

However there is a requirement to print each log on a daily basis and ideally e-mail it to non-members (managers) possibily dependent upon tags. Obviously it is simple to print each separate entry but what I am looking for is a way of printing a 24 hour period of blog entries, or exporting them to a text file (word or e-mail body for example) to be distributed and printed. This is because there can be as many as 100 blog entries per day and it would be time consuming (and forest destroying) to print each one out individually.

Apologies if this is covered in a document that I have missed but I am still trying to absorb all the variables. I have also posted it in the forums to see if someone has any ideas with existing features or indeed using it in this way.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Scoring feature causes intermittent blog access error in v1.9.8.3
Two users received the following error when trying to access a blog for which they have permissions in TW v1.9.8.3:

It is of cause possible to create a new tiki-user for the mailinglist and watch the blog, but we do not want the unwatch-link to appear in the mail, and we do not want to change the template for the blog-watch-mail.

support media casting (e.g. podcasting) from blogs
Support inclusion of media in blogs to provide podcasting, vodcasting, etc.

- Attachment of media files to blog posts
- Association of URLs to other media files on Tiki or elsewhere to blog posts
- Automatic recognition of relevant data from media files using getid3
- Creation of fields in database to store relevant media data
- Creation of enclosure and media XML tags in RSS feed
- Display of media controls in blog entries
- Test using iTunes and iPod, iPodder, Thunderbird, among others

This should be an optional feature, admin through the Blogs Admin panel
Should allow choice of db or file storage, but probably file storage will normally be used, as media files tend to be quite large.

Existing image attachment functionality in blogs will need substantial improvement to support this.

Tags from blogs can't be searched
When creating a page, include quick tags in the Folksonomy Tags box. They show up in the Most popular tags module, but when clicked on in the cloud none of the tags entered on a Blog page can be found. Tags from gallery and wiki pages are found and listed, but nothing from any Blog page.

This is consistent across three Tikiwiki sites. Although they are all hosted on the same server.

Have tried it with Linux & Windows, Firefox, IE, Opera & W3M.

The field with the smilies does not appear in places where they should be available
In certain instances when editing a page through the text editor (or creating a new blog post), with the wysiwyg-available available (though hidden) the smilies field is not displayed.

The problem is probably due to the fact that the variable $wysiwyg contains an 'n' if the editor is hidden while in some instances the value is NULL. This is probably because if the wysiwyg feature in admin-features is disabled then the $wysiwyg value is NULL, but if it is enabled but hidden the value is 'n'.

There is a conditional in templates/tiki-editpage.tpl that does not take this into account.

(The problem may be present in other versions as well)

tiki-send_blog_post.php doesn't check for real -email address in field
When a user fills the e-mail address field at tiki-send_blog_post.php?postId=XX with non-email-string, an e-mail per sentence is tried to send from the server.

A simple check for a well written e-mail adress in the field should prevent silly mistakes from novice users in tiki, but very annoying for the server mailing efficiency and sys admin annoyance redirecting mal-formed e-mail...

It happens in 1.8.5, and also in 1.9.0.

Trackback spam: better protection and easier to cleanup
I noticed today a bunch of trackback spam in my Tiki-powered blog.

According to Wikipedia, "Many blogs have stopped using trackbacks because dealing with spam became too burdensome."

If you get trackback spam in Tiki, here is how to clean:

Using phpmyadmin, go to the table: tiki_blog_posts

And find the colums "trackbacks_to" and "trackbacks_from". They should contain:


instead of the spam.

Now, a more permanent solution to avoiding Trackback spam would be nice. Checking how other blogging software does it should provide some tips.

Some ideas:
0- A way to turn it off (this exists in more recent version of Tiki 1.9.x, see "Trackbacks Pings" in the admin panel)
1- Easier mass deletion
2- Email notification to blog owner
3- Using an online service to check for spam.

Unable to see blog-level comments from tiki-view_blog
When viewing a blog (tiki-view_blog), the post-level comments are not visible (there is no COMMENTS button). This forces users to first select the post's PERMALINK in order to see if there are any comments for a specific post.

The COMMENTS button should be visible for every blog post -- regardless if you are looking at tiki-view_blog or tiki-view_blog_post.

Users (without admin perms) are able to create blogs in other user's name
With the 1.10b (and latest svn changes) it is meant for admins to be able to change the creator of the forums.

Unfortunately, all users with permission to create blogs, can now create blogs for any other user - even if they can not post to them.

It seems that the latest file templates/tiki-edit_blog.tpl and .php requires that a value for the creator is passed back from the field Creator. Thus, the field has to be present with a valid content.

Users cannot use "POST" button in main menu to post in blogs
I just upgraded from 2.0 to 3.0 and discovered a problem with posting in blogs. The problem before was that users selecting "POST" from the main menu could post in anyone's blogs, even those who selected that no one could post in their blogs. Now the problem is they get an error message that says they do not have permission to post, even if it is their own blog. They can only post in their blogs if they do a "list blogs" and then use the pencil icon to post.

In summary:

1. Users can create a blog
2. Users can list the blogs and click the pencil icon to post in their blog.
3. Users cannot post in their blogs by clicking "POST" from the main menu.

using wbloggar, raven, qumana blogger api
I have enabled blogging and xmlrpc
and am attempting to use w.bloggar, raven or qumana to post to the blog.

w.bloggar is able to access prior posts only intermittently, though it does work usually on the second or third try. It can post, and use the more text feature if the more text is changed to ...page..., but modifying an existing post seems to delete the post or make it invisible.

raven can post but the title is missing. revising post also "deletes" it or makes it inaccessible via web. it seems ot be able to read prior posts.

qumana tells me that "this operation is ont supported by the blog" when trying to read prior posts. it posts, but title is missing.

Wanted: default class for images added in wiki editors
Images that are added using the wiki editor (anyway the normal editor, I didn't check the wysiwyg editor yet) don't have a default class. This is the simple case of no containing box or anything added along with the image. Therefore it isn't possible for them to have a default style such as margin or border unless it is added manually by the page author. Or if it is specified by the stylesheet (.postbody img or .wikitext img, etc.) then ''all'' images in those divs get the treatment, including smileys and external link icons, etc.

I suggest adding a default class like "contentimage" to enable a default style. Page authors can always add a second class if needed.

Wiki: CODE block may not contain "$0"
When you try to create a ~np~ {CODE()} {CODE}~/np~ block in the
Wiki which contains $0 somewhere (which is, e.g., quite
common in Unix init scripts), the page won't be
displayed (white screen).

this is easily reproducable by inserting the following
into a Wiki page:
~np~{CODE()}$0 {CODE}~/np~

The bug was not present in previous versions (I
recently upgraded from 1.8.5 to 1.9.0).

And as you can see, it works correctly here in the Tracker:
{CODE()}$0 {CODE}
