"Submitted by" at dev.tw.o/tracker5 forgets username after 2nd edit => user can't edit his items.
To reproduce:
* As a user with non admin rights insert a tracker item to dev.tw.o/tracker5
* edit it again, and change something (add some text to a text areas, etc.) And save
* you are not able to edit that item any more because the "Submitted by" field has lost the record.
* edit that item as a user with admin rights, adn manually provide again the username of the poster.
* the poster can edit it one more time. But after that, he loses the ability again.

1.10: "view extra infomration" link fails in User Prefs screen if user hasn't default group defined
Using 1.10cvs from mid June 2007.

This problem is on at: http://moviments.net/intercanvis

User tracker is on, it's created and working (at registration time everything is ok and working, user sets new data for the user tracker info before ending registration, etc.). Well, at least for Registered users.

This morning I went (as a user with admin privileges) to User Preferences screen > Personal information > Your personal tracker information: "View extra information" (link to [http://www.moviments.net/intercanvis/tiki-view_tracker_item.php?view=+user] ),

but at that link I get this message:

No tracker indicated
Go back
This user belongs to Admins, Editors and Registered groups, but has no one defined as default.
When defined a default group (Registered, the only one with user tracker defined), the link worked.

Search within a category
Categories are amazing for a large site. It makes it easier to manage. Next step is to add an option in search which can be filtered by category.

Allow Tracker item rating to be seen or voted through PluginTracker and PluginTrackerList
Nowadays, Tracker item rating cannot be seen nor selected if using either ((doc:PluginTracker)) or ((doc:PluginTrackerList)). However, it can be seen (for anons) and voted for registered again, after some recent fixes by Sylvie! (thanks Sylvie :-)

I tested that here in dev.tw.o (for instance):


(not showing ratings even if they exist; check [tracker5])

2007-08-13 ML: But this will conflict with wiki page cache. (because value of my last vote is shown, and likely different than yours).

2007-08-13 Xavi: If cache is the problem for this feature request, why not forcing/advising the user to avoid using cache (at least in this page) if he/she wants this tracker field correctly show on the page? (in case this feature is considered interesting enough). I leave to consideration by coders... It was just a suggestion which I would find useful.

2007-12-09 ML: Fixed in BRANCH-1-9 by Kerrnel22. You need to add tracker field ID to trackerlist plugin.

__Wiki page cache with trackerlist ratings needs to be tested to see what the real issues (if any)__

Blog options WYSIWYCA (especially trackbacks)
In Tiki, even if the feature is off, you can see references to trackback pings in tiki-view_blog.php , tiki-view_blog_post.php, tiki-edit_blog.php and tiki-blog_post.php

Proper feature checks for {$feature_blogposts_pings}, {$feature_trackbackpings} and if the feature is activated per blog should be done.

Do not display [comment] link, when no perm to post comments and no comments posted yet
for users with tiki_p_wiki_view_comments perm only, it displays the ~np~[comment]~/np~ link on the wiki page bar even when no comments there yet to read, so clicking it does literally nothing...

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

fix sheets created directly from wiki SHEET plugin within wiki pages for managing tables visually
Spreadsheets can be created directly through wiki SHEET plugin directly within wiki pages. this allows managing big tables visually, as well as having the data ready for producing graphs, etc. (see documentation for tikisheets at doc.tw.o, if needed)

However, when you create a sheet through a call to the SHEET plugin from the wiki page itself, there are 3 issues which need to be fixed:
# you need to know the id you want to assign it to,
# after that, tiki-sheets.php doesn't list it (even if the sheet is really created, and you can import data to it, and show it at the wiki pages, etc.).
# the sheet is not shown with the right css

Even if we have wysiwyg option available, I still think that is worth improving tiki sheets usability to be used directly from wiki pages, once those 3 previous issues are fixed.
Updated on Feb. 2, 2011, using trunk (7svn)
# Steps to reproduce the first issue
## Edit a wiki page
## Use the plugin helper to create a new sheet in that page. And since it's a new sheet, it doesn't have a sheetId yet, so that you leave all fields empty in the plugin helper for the pluginsheet
++ this will add this type of code in your wiki page:
++ {CODE()}{sheet}{CODE}
## Save the wiki page
++ you will see an empty sheet shown in place at that wiki page, with the button at the bottom to allow the user to "edit it" (so far, so good)
## Once you click in the edit sheet button, you end up in some url like this one:
++ http://localhost/tiki7trunk/tiki-view_sheets.php?sheetId=&parse=edit
++ which produces a WSOD (blank page).
*** In my case, I guess that this url should have been:
+++ http://localhost/tiki7trunk/tiki-view_sheets.php?sheetId=2&parse=edit
+++ since I had only one sheet previously created, with sheetId 1, so that the next one should be 2. However, this new url is still producing WSOD for me. (tiki caches cleared, just in case, repeated this step, and same WSOD)

The expected behavior is that the user is the user would be editing a blank new sheet with the url:

and when the user saves that sheet, the new sheetId 2 exists, and the user is either sent back to the wiki page where he clicked at the button "edit sheet" (preferable option) or either sent to the corresponding tiki view sheet 2.

WYSIWYG & Mobile: check if browser is supported and provide relevant error message
Android browser on Tiki8: It just says "Loading..." forever

[http://cksource.com/blog/CKEditor_3.6.2_released|Recent iPads and iPhones should be OK]

If browser is not supported, should Tiki revert to entering text (or manual HTML?)

list gallery in tiki-browse_gallery.php
To reproduce, go to:

and, as an anonymous user, click on "list gallery", you will be sent here:
"Permission denied you cannot access this gallery"

Should tiki-list_gallery.php use the same perms as tiki-browse_gallery.php? Right now, it seems to be only for admins.

listing file gallery contents broken in Catalan Language since 1.9.8beta???
Mmmm, file gallery contents cannot be viewed if anonymous and language selected is catalan. Example:


Change language to english or any other, and the contents will be shown.

I'm not sure but I would say that this didn't happen before I updated to 1.9.8beta (yesterday)

May be related to that older bug report?:

Login module should include some info text when Intertiki is on
When Intertiki is on, mod-login_box.tpl should show some info on the login box reporting where to register in order to log into that site. Example: edu.tw.o., with tw.o registration.
I've done this by hand:

^Intertiki is enabled. Log in with your account at <a href="http://tikiwiki.org">http://tikiwiki.org</a>. <br><b>New?</b>: <a href="http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-register.php">register at tw.o</a> and come back to log in here.
Intertiki is enabled. Log in with your account at <a href="http://tikiwiki.org">http://tikiwiki.org</a>. <br><b>New?</b>: <a href="http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-register.php">register at tw.o</a> and come back to log in here.

But this could be added more general on tiki, so that it checks whether intertiki feature is on, and get's the name of the intertiki server from some value at your tiki isntallation, and then, the message is customized on the login box.

Mark blog entry as private doesn't work
Blog post edit page (tiki-blog_post.php) has a "Mark entry as private" check box, to restrict viewing to the author. But it doesn't work; any user can read the post.

Needs to be fixed or the option removed from tiki-blog_post.php in time for 1.10.0

menus are not shown any more to anonymous, at least
Since some weeks ago, afaik (April 2008, or so), menus and menu options cannot be seen for anonymous on several sites that I admin, including edu.tikiwiki.org, if you select some themes. Example: moreneat.css

On others, like http://moviments.net/ilp (using nornia.css), the menu on a module assigned to anonymous and registered, was shown when you logged in. Right now I've just assigned thatmodule to admins only, and used menupage module, which works fine. But I can re-set the previous config. is somebody wants to reproduce the missworking.

module freetags_morelikethis is not WYSIWYCA
The module freetags_morelikethis shows links a user has no permission to view.

I have to introduce a knowledge management system in our company and am convinced that TikiWiki is the solution to go.

The problem is:
- lots of data is classified (categorized)
- Tags are required to build a network of the knowledge
- the users will not accept a system that leads often to "permission denied"

Without this module being WYSIWYCA I cannot suggest TikiWiki to the management.

Modules: if a feature is turned off, it should be hidden or somehow filtered + other ideas
Tiki 1.9.8 ships with 94 modules. (excellent)

Need a "module manager"

Module should come with a screenshot or preview.

A page listing all modules with descriptions and parameters- grouped by feature.

currently, the "user modules" and "assigned modules" titles are very non-intuitive. Should say "custom modules" and "active modules"

However, all modules are listed at all times. Module listing should check for features which are activated. It would be easier on new Tiki admins. For example, if articles are deactivated, don't show me last_articles in tiki-admin_modules.php

Admin modules does not display titles of available modules or provide easy method for selecting unused modules, such as with a listbox. The missing information is not available unless a Tiki admin has system admin permissions.

Also, all possible parameters for the current module should be listed (or picked from a drop-down)

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.
