Login with "Request passcode to register:" fails
Request passcode to register: fails.

Example 1: (Still broken?) I toggled on "Request passcode to register:" and "Prevent automatic/robot registration:", as well as "user tracker" selected at registration time, and after the registration steps, and filling the user tracker information, I get the message (like): "Register code not valid. You need to know the register code to register in this web site" (approx)

Tried three times with different browsers and users names (and double checking the passcode to register): same effect.

When I toggle off the "Request passcode to register:", then everything works fine.

Example 2:
Request password to enter = on
User tracker (for registration) = on
...initial screen of choose name, enter password and email works.
...second screen with user tracker info fails on submit.

Tested with:
1. Passcode only - Success
2. Passcode & email verification - Success
3. Email verificaton & user tracker - Success
4. Passcode & user tracker - Fail

All I really need is Passcode & user tracker to work together!

openid login currently not working for me, and it did months ago
I can't login to http://wiki-translation.com (using 1.10svn from june'08) with my openid account

I successfully used that openid account months ago to create a linked tiki account here (xavidp), but it seems that currently it doesn't work. Using the openid box I get the error:

"Authentication error; not a valid OpenID."

Maybe openid is broken? We are using kubrick theme there...

"new user registration" has problems (newest TIKIWIKI on newest PHP) - either bug or config aspect
"new user registration" has problems.
Problemss stated for TIKIWIKI tried on newest PHP versions 5.2x (+newest MySAL)
- Fantastico install of also concerned. -

It is either a config error by admin, or a problem of latest stable TIKIWIKI (Oct. 2007) with neweset versions of PHP, or something similar. Various tests + details are described - please visit the links below.

Hopeful to get opinions on this before going on with my tests.

If it is not a software bug, then it would at least probably be an aspect about the ergnomics of instructions. When this problem will be settled and if found of general interest, I will perhaps add the experience to the TIKIWIK docs.

Details are in the FORUM: Architecture/Installation :

There the item:
"Register as a new user" does not excecute - config error? or bug in v. ?" :

"Re-validate user by email after unsuccessful logins" email doesn't allow change of password

I think there is a usability bug when the option "Re-validate user by email after unsuccessful logins" is selected.
After x unsuccessful logins, the user gets an email with a link like :


When following this link, the user gets the message: "This feature is disabled". Nothing is clear on what to do next, if one's account is still valid or not, and how to change one's password if forgotten.

* Crypt password method: crypt-md5

"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.

1.10 from August 1st: clean install doesn't allow admin to login after pass. change
Using 1.10cvs from August 1st, 2007.
On easyphp-1.8 environment (thus, Window$ XP)

Steps I did:
* updated cvs code
* called tiki-install.php to create a new clean install over an old tiki110cvs databse (assuming it deletes all tables and re-creates them as needed), using basic profile for easy use
* installation says eveything ok, no sql queries failed.
* login to new site as admin/admin
* change password to another string (simple string with only letters, between 6 and 8 chars. in all my attempts)
* after password is changed, error produced:
** I cannot login to the site. Using the right admin/pass., I see the homepage again as anonymous (so I'm not logged in).
** If using a wrong pass, I see the user/pass error message.

Tried reinstalling several times with different passwords, no success.
* the funny thing is that the new admin pass. seems to be recorded ok, since I can re-access the tiki-install.php using that new admin password.

1.10:"Use tracker for more user info." should automatically link username&email from 1st reg. screen
Using 1.10cvs from mid june 2007

I'm using the "Admin > login > Use tracker for more user information"
Created a simple tracker, with some fields, including the "username" field, but not the email, right now, since that was already introduced in the first registration screen.

2 improvements would be needed/very welcome:

(1) Username was not assigned to the item in the user tracker, even if the user had selected a username in the previous screen (first registration screen - tiki-register.php).

(fyi: later on, When I, as a registered user, edited my item afterwards, the username info was well selected automatically).

This user info tracker (tracker id 1) had those fields:
Id position name type options isMain Multilingual Tbl vis Searchable Public Hidden Mandatory Description
1 edit 10 Nom text field 1 y n y y y n y Nom de la... remove down
2 edit 20 Cognoms text field n n y y y n y Cognoms de... remove down

8 edit 200 Comentaris textarea 1,50,10,1000,1000 n n y n y n n La teva... remove down

At "Admin > login > Displays UserTracker information in user information page. Format: trackerId, fieldId1, fieldId2, …:", these was the field content:


I also tried includind field 3 - the user selector - (i.e.: 1,1,2,3,4,6,7,8), but similar effect: I couldn't see the username shown in the second screen, and It was not set on the tracker (confirmed as admin user)

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!)

What do you think?

TikiWiki 2.0: Difficulty Registering / Adding Users

Problem with new installation - v7 - cookies not enabled
I have been having problems upgrading from previous versions and decided to install a new blank install of v7. Everything works fine until I try and log in with the admin user name and password I created during the install process. I receive a message that cookies need to be enabled. This is not a message that I have had before on any prior versions and cookies are definitely enabled in my browser. I have tried with Chrome, FireFox and IE and the problem is the same on v7. I have seen various discussions on this topic in the forums but it seems there is no resolution for this one and no clear answer as to what is causing it. My URL's have no ~ in them.

Fivealive Theme Login: "Register" & "I forgot my password" login options
The login window in Tiki7, using the Fivealive Theme, and when using the "Register" and "I forgot my password" features, those two link options are too close together unlike in Tiki 6.x.

In v6 those options were horizontally side-by-side. In v7 they are stacked vertically. When pointing directly on the text for "Register" the option "I forgot my password" is selected. To select the Register option, you have to move the pointer above the "Register" option to activate that page.

This happens regardless of OS or browser as I've tried it in XP Pro (32bit) using Firefox 5, Win7 Ultimate (on a 64 bit virtual machine), using Chrome and Firefox5 and Ubuntu 10.4 (32bit), using Firefox 5, Konqueror and Chromium.

Though I've been able to figure out where to hover the pointer to make the appropriate selection, my site visitors aren't likely to figure that out and leave the site out of frustration.

Admin Cannot Validate New Users
I had tested this successfully in version 3.3, but now with the upgrade to version 4.0 it does not seem to work. Here are the steps to recreate the issue:

1. Set up a TikiWiki so that users need to be validated by an Admin prior to actually logging in.

2. Register as a new user and get the following message:

Your account request has been stored and will be activated by the admin as soon as possible.
You'll receive email notification once your account is activated.
Please do not attempt to login until you receive the email notification.

3. Log in as 'admin' and navigate to Users page of admin tools. Push the round green checkmark graphic which has a hover display that says "Validate user: junkman". It sends me to this URL:


On that page the site returns a simple dialog box that says "Invalid username or password". Who's username & password? The Admin's?

At this point it wants to redirect me to the home page and I cannot get these new users validated.

admin user + anonymous & registered groups NOT DELETABLE nor CHANGEABLE
After some bad experience (ours and from other users), Rick (Rick99) and I suggest:

^RFE should be that the following username should __not__ be changable or deletable:
* __admin__

And the following groupnames should __not__ be changable or deletable:

Additionally, there should be a usergroup __administrator__ that has ''all'' permissions. This would allow Tiki-admins to easily create new Admin logins, with their own usernames.

__added: ensure password reminder works out of the box__

A couple of usability issues could be fixed here.

a) remind/reset passwords is off by default - should be on?
b) no email is set on admin by the installer

this would prevent most newbie lost admin password issues i think. - mlpvolt

# 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.

But below, after the footer section, a new tiki header and the rest of another tiki page appeared, and it looked as if Tiki recognized me as logged on the header (my picture is shown), but the login module was also shown for anonymous to log in, on the right column.

See html attached.

Better/Easier reporting of item/object permissions which override category and group permissions
It would be useful to extract all permissions of File Galleries or Wiki pages or Forums, etc

Binding actions to user creation
It would be great to be able to bind arbitrary actions to user creation.

For example, I would like to have a blog created on user registration, named after the username.
Then I might want to have only that user with permissions for some items.
Maybe point the user's group homepage to something user-specific.

And et cetera :)

Bug in calculating password strength
The number count in a password is rated using this piece of code in lib/tiki-js.js:

// Numbers
var nNumberCount = countContain(strPassword, m_strNumber);
// -- 1 number
if (nNumberCount == 1)
nScore += 10;
// -- 3 or more numbers
if (nNumberCount >= 3)
nScore += 20;

This causes a password with 1 number to get 10 points extra, a password with 2 numbers extra points, and a password with 3 or more numbers 20 extra points.

Call to undefined method Net_LDAP2_Error::getEntry() when logging in wrongly with LDAP
When logging in wrongly with LDAP (no such user or wrong password), will get:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method Net_LDAP2_Error::getEntry() in /var/www/html/watwiki/lib/auth/ldap.php on line 257

(or white screen unless Error reporting is turned on for all)

Strangely this only happens if you key in a password 5 characters or longer. A shorter password will just show "Invalid password" or "Invalid username" as the case may be.

Cannot add user to group with long name (over 32 chars) when another similar group already exists
When you have a group name like "Finance and Marketing Departments" and you create another group called "Finance and Marketing Departments Moderators". You will not be able to add users into the latter group if that user is already in the first group. This is caused by "duplicate key" error in the attempt to add the user, because the key length limitation is 32 chars.

This bug might probably be Mysql settings dependent.

Cannot manually create user when using LDAP

Cannot modify user in tiki-adminusers
We recently upgraded from Tiki-4.X to Tiki-5.X. We are running Tiki-5.3.

There seems to be a bug when trying to modify a user under the administration page (tiki-adminusers.php). When trying to click on a user, one is asked to confirm (which is a new workflow) and then taken to the Edit User page. However, when one tries to modify something (e.g. password, email address), you are asked to confirm again, but it never completes.

Here is a set of detailed steps to reproduce the problem:
# Go to admin users (tiki-adminusers.php)
# Click on user "demo"
# Click "Click here to confirm your action"
# Change email address from demo@demo.com to demo@demo.org
# Click "Save"
# Click "Click here to confirm your action"
* Nothing happens. The page address is "tiki-adminusers.php#", but it never changes from the confirm action page. "Go Back" does not work, but "Return to Home Page" does.

Cannot modify user password
I installed Tiki 5.3 from Fantastico and then ran the setup script.

I was able to create some new users and assign them to groups.

The problems manifested when I attempted to change the default admin password and the password that I forgot for one of the new users.

Upon clicking "Edit Account Settings" next to the user, tiki-adminusers.php is displayed with the user number (e.g. tiki-adminusers.php?user=3).

There are three buttons, clicking the one to "confirm" the action causes tiki-adminusers to display a form for editing the password, email, etc. for the user.

"Saving Changes" causes tiki-admin users to again present the three buttons, this time without any user number on the URL.

Clicking to "Confirm" adds a "#" sign to the end of the URL, but nothing seems to happen.

The original password is unchanged and other values entered on the form are unchanged.

Confirmation / Validation Emails upon registration encoding problem
The registration email seems to give boxed char when mail templates are in french.

I had to add utf8_encode()
to LINE 2727 of lib/userslib.php
$mail_data = utf8_encode($smarty->fetch("mail/$mailTemplate.tpl"));
in order to correct the text display problem.

But when I debug with

It return the tpl as already in UTF-8, but I had to utf-8 it again to correct it, can someone look into this?

Sometimes, users forget their usernames and end up creating duplicate accounts.

Dealing with high-volumes of data (drop-down lists become search boxes)
TikiWiki often has drop-down menus with many choices.

Ex.: drop-down list of users, or wiki pages, etc

That is ok for a few hundred. But what if you have 300 000 users or 300 000 wiki pages?

There should be a setting where beyond a certain number, the drop-down become a search box.

Defaut user wiki page name should be based on realname instead of e-mail
In 1.10 now we can set to login as e-mail and display realname wherever possible. But the user wiki page by default is set to 'UserCreate<e-mail>. We should still allow user to create his page with 'UserCreate<username/real name>'.

The recommended behaviour should be if user chooses e-mail to be private or it could be if admin sets to disaply realname wherever possible, then it should use 'UserCreate<realname>' other cases it can be based on e-mail.

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

obs: waiting for cvs to unlock to commit

Email required during registration
When user try to register they get the following message after pressing "register":

Your email could not be validated; make sure you email is correct and click register below.

Even if the email has been configured to be not required. (I did not try a blank installation.)

Also the email field is present during registration (I don't know if this is related to the bug or if this is normal behaviour)

Users are able to customize Forum Threat layout in a menu on top of the threat with number of posts per page, style, sort by. In My Tiki users are able to set this as preference for user to user messages. This should be possible for the Forum layout too!

Some users prefere the Forum old-post-first and all posts on one page, others prefere latest-post-first and 10 or 20 messages per Page. I would like users to set personal preferences for the discussion forum too. Not for each forum, but once per user, globally in myTiki.

This is a standard feature of most bulletin Board software and the TikiForum should have it too :)

enhancing spam fight and protection: from multiple comments to banning multiple ips with minimum clicks
This improvement in Tiki would be very welcome. After spammers add noise to your site (in one day, 10 comments to different places in your tiki from 10 different ip's!), it would be nice if there was the chance that the tiki admin can ban all those 10 ip's with a minimum number of clicks (besides removing many spam comments at once, which can be done already).

This is some possible way to add if (from the interface point of view):

{img src=img122}

Self explicative?
User selects multiple checkboxes, and clicks on some button below which sends all that information (those ip's from those comments) to fill admin banning data (storing the data already for the 10 ip's at once).
Alternatively, one by one, prefilling the interface one by one.

{img src=img123}
