_htaccess should know which version of Tiki it is for

Since Tiki4, in tiki-admin_include_sefurl.php, Tiki detects if .htaccess is there and if contains tiki-index.php?page=$1

If Tiki is upgraded, by installing over, there may be issues because Tiki is still using the old .htaccess without informing tiki admin

Have Tiki version number in _htaccess (and thus updated as part of the release procedure)
Test on this, and inform users when they forgot to upgrade their .htaccess file.

"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.

"TermA TermB" searches should be "termA AND termB" not "termA OR termB."
This is the default behavior in search engines like Google

Also reported here: [tiki-view_tracker_item.php?itemId=166]

I have found that, if I want to find something on tw.o sites, I should disregard TW's search feature and use Dogpile to look things up. The TW search capability is so weak that it is almost "a missing feature." At the very least, "TermA TermB" searches should be "termA AND termB" not "termA OR termB." The plus/minus markers are fine if you're in the know, but they don't work well either. Using the category/group filters renders a whole different set of answers; not GOOD answers, just different. Without those filters, unauthorized users see parts of pages they are not supposed to see at all. Not a missing feature, a broken feature.

Gosh, I hate to be so negative.

"Translation of this page is incomplete." / "translation in progress"
The phrase "translation in progress" might be confusing for users, who expect to see only text to translate in the field of text to translate.

Plus, it contains code that users might not understand

Plus, it is not part of content, it is a metadata. It should not be in the content field.

"User's Time Online" Feature Request
A few video games have a feature that lets you see how long the individual has been logged onto the video game for. It also tracks this per session and totals it up into a sort of "total time spent online" total.

Session Time: 2hrs, 20mins, 13sec.
Total Time: 7days, 9hrs, 20mis.

I think it would be an excellent option to see which of your users spend the most time at your website. What do you think?

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.

#3757 ADD : Language Custom and all language files system holding - Proposal MOD ADD for Trunk 7x
!#3757 ADD : Language Custom and all language files system holding - Proposal MOD ADD for Trunk 7x

As I can't access in "edit/delete" mode to #3757, I add this one for complements.

The problem of access to whishlist is reported in : #3767

!!Complements :

!!!To be able to hold [FIX] in language files without direct corrections
The fact to have to commit the full language.php for a language when we have to make a change into an invalid translation has multiple not suitable effects :
*you can't follow changes
*you can't check and think about
*you can't validate

The new changes with array fusion make forbidden the fact to alter the (system) language with custom.php or other

I enhance my proposal with the [FIX]-*-language.php files with are merged and not fused with after all others.

The final aim is to make a merge and automatic rewrite of language.php from the merged array "$lang_$lg" from validated [fix].

!!!To files are naturally sorted (normal - UTF8):
# language.php or [SYSTEM]-*-language.php
# custom.php or [CUSTOM]-*-language.php
# [FIX]-*-language.php

the "*" is a part of the name which has meaning (content) and can be sorted.
particularly non yet translated parts can be separated from main [SYSTEM] and marked.
Progressive and controlled (repartition of job for example) translation can be done.

Best regards


PS : I am particularly sensibles on this because I made each day changes and I think not efficient to commit the full French language each day but a little [FIX] with what+date seems a good solution.

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.

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!)

__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.

Tracker templates (import/export tracker definitions/structure)
If Trackers had the "tracker template" feature, it would allow for better pre-made extended features for Tiki at install time.
In tw.o forums, some people requested like: address books (imagine with the same basic fields as Mozilla Thunderbird & Evolution, etc. address books, ... Export from you local program (through csv), and import to your address book in Tiki (through csv).

The same for "Offers & Demands (linked or linkable)", that many people/communities would like to use like "out of the box" feature. I do have that kind of trackers made (basic, but working for production already: http://valldelcorb.org/trackers - http://valldelcorb.org/Comparteix (1.9.x) or http://intercanvis.net (1.10.x) using tracker plugins in a general Wiki page).

Since duplicate tracker is already coded in 1.10, and templates concept already exists in Tiki, Tracker templates would be a nice MUST in the MID and LONG run.

Tracker templates should be selectable at install time (in the new installer devs. are thinking/designing -> ((Install)) ), or at a later stage through Mods, maybe?

articles needs aids to fight spam (e.g. admins see tiki-list_submissions.php at info.tw.o)
I looked today at http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-list_submissions.php and there are nearly 300 spam submissions there so far, and no way to delete them in groups. Maybe that's why nobody noticed my prior submission as info.tw.o editor from last month...

(the user need to be in info.tw.o Admin group in order to see the spam list. If your users is just in the info.tw.o_editors group, you'll see nothing but your own submissions if any.)

A text box to select the amount of rows to be listed would be welcome, and multiple checkboxes to select some or all, like with users, etc.

By the way, how can anonymous spammers post submissions to info.tw.o? They can't through http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-edit_submission.php (at least, nowadays)... Spam hole somewhere?

Multivalued trackers
Trackers can have many fields.

Multilingual is a way to have multiple values.

Native multi-valued trackers would be useful in certain circumstances.

Another way is to use ((doc:Category Tracker Field)) or ((doc:Items List and Item Link Tracker Fields)) or ((doc:Drop Down - Radio Tracker Field)) with multiple choice option. Probably the best is to build upon the ((doc:Relations Tracker Field)).

We would also want multiple sets.

First Name 1 (field 46)
Last Name 1 (field 47)
Address 1 (field 49)

First Name 2
Last Name 2
Address 2

First Name 3
Last Name 3
Address 3

First Name 4
Last Name 4
Address 4

Could we imagine a new tracker field type "Set of fields":
Fields: List of fields in the set. ex.: 46,47,49
Number of repetitions: ex.: 3

This would create artificial fields (in this case 46-2, 47-2, 49-2, 46-3, 47-3, 49-3, 46-4, 47-4, 49-4)

So these fields could be used independently (ex.: 47-2), but since they are linked, we could have some smarter handling for forms, reports and exports.

We could want the input form to by default indicate only the first set of fields, and via jQuery, show additional set of fields.
We could want a report/export of this "Set of fields" which would aggregate everything in one listing.

TikiWiki 2.0: Filtering Search Results
Our site has a lot of child pages that are included by parent pages. When accessed individually, they make much less sense than if they are accessed as part of the parent page that includes them.

Is there a way to restrict the Search functionality of TikiWiki to only return pages that meet a certain criteria? Eg, pages that would be in the format tiki-index.php?page=Title/PageGroup

Files Galleries admin screen should allow to displace files like in the Images Galleries screen
Our users keep adding large .ogg files in our files galleries and we have been asked to externalize theses files in a special download directory of the web server. Problem is that the admin screen of the files galleries doesn't have a DISPLACE section. You can set the option for the files to be added in an external directory, and the new ones are indeed placed into it, but the existing files stay in the database.

I have discovered that the *Image* galleries admin screen has this DISPLACE section but it will work only for the image galleries, no way to use it for the non image galleries.

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)...

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.

This feature would enable editing discussion to happen right within the page being edited. Editors could more easily reference the text under discussion, since it would be right next to the comments. Discussing pages separately in the forum would no longer be needed, or would be optional.

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.

Add capacity to sort file gallery files
The blogs admin area offers an easy way to sort blogs by name rather than id, but the file gallery admin area doesn't. This is important, I think, because if you have lots of files in a given gallery, you may want them to appear in alphabetical order.

A Tiki Calendar wish list and bug report

Minor annoyances:
-Manually entered times in "add item" do not always show up in the calendar as entered (often an hour off). Simply editing the item and re-entering the time fixes this.

-I ran across a limit on the number of calendar items. I had entered a large list of events and later ones disappeared from tha calendar -even in whole year view. I deleted old events and they came back. maybe this is isolated.

-If I mistakenly created a calendar, I could not delete it until it had at least one event entered.

Nice to haves:
-Some way of differentiating calendar entires from different calendars when they are combined. Ex:one calendar shows events people can go to volunteer to actually do something , one shows speaking engagements people can go and listen to. I now simply use HTML bold tags in the description of one of the calendars. This works but maybe some other way? Colors, different font perhaps?

-Ability to easily add link for a Google Map. Perhaps fields to enter address info and then auto generate a map link. Google Maps has this and can be put into a Tiki page but Google Maps lacks important features, like a list view and multiple calendars, that Tiki Calendar has.

I can't see the reason for the separation between the structures feature and the menu feature - structures are massively easier to create and edit, but only menus can be shown collapsibly. Separation of functions leads to confusion and harder support.

Add "Add Calendar" and "Edit Calendar" Buttons to the Admin Calendar Page
I'd like to see the UI on the Admin Calendar page get more consistent with the Admin Groups page.
Current behavior: Select Admin Calendars from menu. List of Calendars and "Create/Edit Calendars Label comes up in Entry Area. After entering and saving a new calendar, the last information stays in the text entry boxes. The user must click on Admin Calendars and re-load the page to clear the boxes for the next entry.

Desired Behavior: Select Admin Calendars from menu. List of Calendars and a form with "Add a Calendar" are opened. Buttons for "Edit Calendar" and "Create Calendar" are located below the Admin Calendar heading and load the appropriate forms.
Thanks for considering this request. dthacker.

Add "social" relavancy to search results
I would like to see social implications added to Tiki search results. For example, in addition to pure content relevancy, it would be nice if search results took into account things like:
- Page rating
- Free tags
- Bookmarks
- Trackbacks
- Number of views

These could be used in conjunction with pure keyword matching to present users with a (potentially) better match.

Add a "Create New Calendar" button to tiki-admin_calendars.php
After a new calendar is created, the create calendar form is still populated, and subsequent changes will edit the already created calendar instead of creating a new one. This behavior is not apparent to the user until the edit has taken place.

add a label like [forum name XXX] in each email from monitorized forum post or thread....
Forums are getting powerful enough to substitute mailing lists on many tiki sites (yahhogroups, etc.). However, notification messages from forums cannot be added easily to local email filters since the subject doesn't contain a label like [[Forum X - site Y] to ease this task.
[Forum X - site Y]

I guess this must be very easy for a coder (just adding some variable to a smarty template? and adding a call to that variable if needed from the related .php or .tpl file - I just get the rough idea... I wish I could do that myself...)

Add a select box to monitor each own's forum post, comments or tracker submission or wiki page at post time
I've been thinking for ages that this kind of option is REALLY needed, and I thought it should not be much coding effort:

Automonitoring each own's posts, through either:
# Add a select box to monitor each own's forum post or tracker submission at post time, in a "per forum post or tracker item insertion" basis, or
# with a user preference for all forums, or all trackers, blogs, etc..
Still needed...

Bugs & Wish list
tracker item
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.

Add ability to have custom status (and select default) in the Calendar
In the Tiki calendar admins can create custom priorities, locations, etc. We need a way to create custom Status, too.

Additionally, it would be nice to let the admin decide which status is the default for newly created calendar events.

See [http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?forumId=4&comments_parentId=25557|this forum thread] for more info.

Add Google Analytics setup as an option in the admin panel.
It's very easy to add manually by editing templates/footer.tpl, it would be nicer to have the _uacct saved in the database with the rest of the settings. Upgrades would be easier for site admins.

Please see:

This would be similar to gmap.


Maybe this feature request could be even more generic to include easy ways to add other services and/or make it easy to use with open source apps like phpOpenTracker or phpMyVisites.

http://www.phpmyvisites.us also recommends putting the code just before /body>

Also, there should be a way to exclude certain or all groups from tracking. If I use 1 Tiki for a public website and and Intranet, I don't want my Intranet traffic to pollute my public site stats. I could just want anonymous users to be tracked.

Also, let's integrate more tightly with the new [http://www.google.com/analytics/GATCmigrationguide.pdf|ga.js] code so we can track downloaded files, and take advantage of other nice stats.

Add green & yellow permission keys on tiki-listpages.php
It will be very useful when TikiWiki is used as a combined portal & Intranet

The key (and link to permissions) is already on tiki-listpages.php (great!)

Now, a green key could indicate this page has special permissions.

And maybe even a third key (say blue) indicates that the item is inheriting permissions via the category.

add group watch to articles
Add group watch to articles

This way we could also have all users informed about comunity news , etc. in tiki sites.

In fact, the best option would be what it's done with newsletters: subscribe that bunch of users from a group, and let them unsubscribe it they wish and when they wish, without admin action. But if no action is done, they all get the copy of the article at their email, etc.

Add Group Watches to Categories, so that Organic Groups can receive automatic notification on changes about their topics (e.g. Infrastructure Team when tracker item related with *.t.o sites).

add history & rollback capabilities to structures
add history & rollback capabilities to structures (record dump somehow when struct. changes, or allow saving structure dump for backup...)
This way, when the structure gets mixed by machine or human error, the structure can be rolled back to the previous state.

This way, we could be more open for registered users to manage http://doc.tikiwiki.org/Documentation (or others) without the risk of failure when nodes get moved to the wrong place (due to some bug in the code). Or due to mistake by benevolent newbies mixing things without bad intention.


UPDATE: Still desired for some LTS version. {sign user="xavi" datetime="2013-11-17T09:31:50+00:00"}

Add IP to syslog and/or action log when anons (at least) add content (for spam protection)
Add ip to syslog and/or action log, so that when anons (at least) are allowed to add content and it's spam (robots seem to be able to post with our current antibot captcha), there is way to identify the ip of the spammer.

So far, antibot captcha is added (in trunk, at least) to:
* wiki edit
* wiki page comments
* forum posts
* tracker item comments
* freetags
* calendar items
* newsletter subscription

The action of adding content on those features should be logged in syslog and/or action log and IP recorded.

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.
