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.

maketoc generates "super Table of Contents" with too many headings in Multiprint
__The message below was edited.__ {sign user="Chealer9" datetime="2018-06-08T15:57:21+00:00"}

We are running into an issue of maketoc appending onto itself if more than one maketoc appear per page. for starters, our server is TikiWiki 3.2, Windows Server 2003, apache 2.2.13, mysql 5.1.39, php 5.3.0, Multiwiki setup.

We are seeing this in ((doc:Multiprint)). What I am seeing is that if I have Tikipage A with a ~np~{maketoc}~/np~ at the VERY top and headings 1, 2, 3 and Tikipage B with a ~np~{maketoc}~/np~ at the VERY top and headings 4, 5. When I Multiprint using the Pages selector (both Tikipage A and B) there will be 2 TOCs displayed in the resulting print page. The first TOC will show 1,2,3 and further down the page will be 1,2,3,4,5 (when I expected only 4,5). We are trying to Mulitprint hundreds of pages (and most have their own maketoc) so the very last TOC takes up 15 pages itself (after accumulating TOCS over 100s of wiki pages). Big problem for us as our nurses need to have a hardcopy/offline copy on hand in case our systems go down.

So it is the parsing of the maketoc that is causing the appending of subsequent TOCs. I found a bug by "larryg" where he tries to fix a similar issue (cf {wish id=2781} and [http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?topics_offset=1&forumId=2&comments_parentId=34791]) but his fix did not work for me. I think that he is on the right track. Does anyone know of a fix? Has anyone experienced this? Is it fixed in 4.x?

Thanks in advance,
