Contact us form requires Anonymous to have tiki_p_messages
This is a problem if you don't want Registered users to have this permission. (Often, we want Registered to have all the permissions of anonymous)

in tiki-admin.php?page=features
There is "Contact us" and "Contact Us (Anonymous)"

in tiki-admin.php?page=general, we have more related options
"Contact user:"
"Allow anonymous users to "Contact Us":"

All these options should be on Contact Us admin page (to be created)

doc.tw.o needs to be far more open to edits
A newly registered user cannot edit most of doc.tw.org

An anonymous user cannot edit doc.tw.org, even with CAPTCHAs.

There is no clear text on a page of doc.tw.org which tells a user why they cannot edit that page, or what they can do about it.

Drawings: Start button is leftover
Tiki Drawings are working in BRANCH-1-8 and BRANCH-1-9. However, after I created a drawing, I am sometimes leftover with a Java "Start" button.

Can someone confirm this bug?

Edit page warning sometimes stays active even when you cancel.
Can someone give more details on this one?

I believe the problem occurs when someone goes to edit a page then uses the browser buttons, links or types a new URL without clicking either the svae or cancel buttons. -- mdavey

A related issue is that the lock is checked /before/ all the permissions checks have been done. The result is that one can try to edit a page as anonymous, get an error warning, login, try again only to be told that 'Anonymous' is editing the page. -- mdavey

Limit users from CAS
While CAS authentication is great, it allows multiple users to login if you have a widely common CAS server.
For example, SecurePass [1] strong authentication allow ALL securepass users to login through their CAS.
The need is to optionally limit which users or users domain can login to tikiwiki through CAS.

Hotwords and WikiWords are parsed to links in Table of Contents (maketoc) entries, breaking HTML
When including a maketoc into a page, the titles in the page are still parsed for WikiWords and Hotwords. This breaks HTML, links, and may decrease the readability of page TOC-s.

Robots.txt Disallow entries now must have leading slash
Although the RFC (for example, [http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/norobots-rfc.html]) doesn't explicitly require a leading slash (/) before the page name, I have found that, as of late Oct, 2005, many 'bots, including Googlebots, have started requiring them.

For example, before the change,

Disallow: tiki-pagehistory.php

would prevent well-behaved 'bots from trying to index tiki-pagehistory.php. However, after the change, I had to have:

Disallow: /tiki-pagehistory.php

in robots.txt, or else all my page history would be indexed! I verified this using my server log, and also by doing google searches against my site for phrases that only appeared in page history. I have every reason to believe this is a problem for all other TikiWiki-based sites.

Others have noticed this. There is discussion in the forums at:
* [http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_parentId=13666&forumId=4|Googlebot ignoring robots.txt] -- includes a __graph of my bandwidth usage before and after__.

There should be a notification for new links, and other submitted data
When users submitt data to a TikiWiki site, there is now workflow included. However this results in active management of a TikiWiki site, for different data entered.

Editors, may receive updates to the site, when you use the notification mechanism, however, there is now way for an editor/administrator to get notifiied by e-mail about other changes to the site, or even worse: notification which need approval, like new links and FAQ entries.

There should definitly be notifications for any submitted data to the site which requires approval to be displayed.

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.
tracker item
Tikiwiki mailin is broken in 1.8.5; patches are simple, and attached
In 1.8.5, the mailin feature doesn't work properly. It may work for some combination of mail systems, but not for others. And it does not properly handle multiple mailed-in messages when a page load is attempted.

Specifically, some combination of mail client and mail server caused the email address extraction to leave a newline on the end, which should be trimmed.

Also, in determining the type of message, a case-sensitive string comparison is done against "text/html", which won't match for upper or mixed-case.

Finally, there's a bug (probably a minor design flaw) in the way the histlib object is created in lib/tikilib.php, such that if the code is executed twice in the same session, it will fail the second time because the $histlib object isn't created.

Last but not least, after parsing the message, if there are no parts found, the loop that attempts to process them assumes that $output->parts exists, which it may not.

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.
