"tiki-edit_structure.php" Add Pages To Current Node list truncates at 50 records. Fix included.
The list of tiki pages presented for selection and addition to a structure is truncated at 50 records for no apparent reason and there's no way to add records >50 without running a filter.

I just parroted what I saw in tiki-admin_categories.php for its similar page list and it works.

The diff is below - hope I did that correctly.

*.backup is the original file from the official tiki releast. *.php is the version I modified.

Character substitutions in page names, search engine, usernames, etc.
Since wiki page names should avoid special characters, we'll need to think about maybe using character substitutions in page names (a instead of à, _ instead of ') and use the description field for the exact format.

Code button in CKEditor WYSIWYG not working for IE 8
This bug is seen by our IE 8 clients. 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.

Our users are editing in the CKEditor WYSIWYG and try the Code plugin from the toolbar. The Code window opens as expected and the users enter their code in the correct field. On pressing Insert (or Replace) the code plugin is added in the editor but there is no contents in the plugin. If I open the normal editor it displays as%%%~np~{code caption="MyCode.java"}~/np~%%% which is completely the wrong syntax.

If I try using the Code option in FF then it opens a new window and I can add the code just fine. I view from the normal editor and it reads%%%~np~{CODE( caption="MyCode.java")}public class MyCode {
//testing a point
}{CODE}~/np~%%% which is correct.

Since IE is our corp standard our users need to be able to add files using that browser. Also, they had no problem in Tiki 5.x but that was a different WYSIWYG system.

download .zip files from file gallery failing when using IExplorer
when downloading a file from the gallery with IE the result is corrupted. Firefox or Chrome have no problems.
This is related to the general IE(5/6/7/8) inability to handle compressed files correctly.
Tried various suggestions in .htaccess with no result.
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:exe|t?gz|zip|bz2|sit|rar)$ no-gzip dont-vary

the file gallery module is serving from file system, not from the database.
A zip file in the filesystem served by apache directly works fine.

IE 8 and DD_belatedPNG.js
DD_belatedPNG fix is enabled by default on the site logo and is intended for IE 6 only.
The IE 6 check is in lib/setup/js_detect.php
strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'], 'MSIE 6') !== false

The problem with this is that IE 8 will also get detected, check this:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; __MSIE 8.0__; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; __MSIE 6.0__; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

The bug with all this lies in the fact that IE 8 shows a few js errors on DD_belatedPNG.js on each page load and that could prevent IE from submitting.

IE vs. Firefox views differently
I've just installed TW and am focused on the wiki functions at this point. Wiki pages display correctly in Firefox 3.5.2 but as a thin right hand column on IE 7 or 8. The columns get a bit wider once you login to the wiki in IE but not by much. Admin functions are squished in IE but look fine in Firefox as well.

I can't seem to find this in any FAQs or other support links and would appreciate some help.

IE7 problem with the "Show/Hide menu " javascript (patch now attached as a workaround)
With version 2.2 (not checked previous versions) using the "Show/Hide Menus" option to collapse a left or right hand column with IE7 gives page errors and does not execute. Error message says:

Line 409
Char 4
Error: Could not get the display property. Invalid argument.
URL: http://dev.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php

Function works fine in FF3 and (surprisingly) IE6 but gives exactly the same problem across a number of different tiki sites with IE7, including dev.tikiwiki.org.

The error message (it is assumed) refers to the function flip(foo,style) in lib/tiki-js.js

Problem in image gallery browsing - images don't show - a javascript issue?

The default image set for the 'preview' image is an image called imagestest.gif I guess javascript fanciness is intended to replace this value with the real source value

If I'm right, this would be asking for bugs, compared to actually providing the value in the page contents - what if people don't have javascript?

This error can be seen in my original installation (assuming I don't fix it somehow) at http://cefn.com/cefntiki/tiki-browse_image.php?galleryId=5&sort_mode=created_desc&desp=0&offset=0&imageId=50

The images DO show when navigating them via the gallery (as thumbnails), if you include them as images in pages, or if you manually launch a slideshow by clicking on the Eye icon.

Uploading files into a file gallery fails from within a tracker with files larger than approx. 600 kByte
I created a file gallery in my tiki installation and set all php *upload_size* etc. parameters in my .htaccess correctly. According to these parameters I can upload files up to a size of 8 MByte, which works without any problem, if I do this directly from the file gallery.

Now I try to use this file gal in a tracker via the tracker field "file". Everything seems to work well, uploads are shown with a progress indicator from 0 - 100%. But uploading quietly fails for files larger than 600 kByte.

The files are shown in the gallery, but on the server they have a size of 0 (zero) Bytes, files smaller than approx. 600 kByte work well.

To point it out, the problem is only existent from within a tracker using the new drag and drop (html5??) interface. With an older Internet Explorer, which does not show the progress indicator, uploading works well from within a tracker, too.

I cannot find a reason or a solution...thanks in advance...

Opening pages in the 1.9 result in the blank page
Selecting pages in the 1.9 result in the blank page. It takes several refreshes to get a page to come up. To my knowledge, none of the log files contains any error messages.

WYSIWYG and normal editor are not screen width in IE8
This bug is seen by our IE 8 clients. 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.

When our users try to edit their pages either in WYSIWYG or normal mode, their editor text box is half the width that it should be. They need to use the dragger to make it wider. If we edit in Firefox then the editor is the correct width.

Since IE is our corp standard our users need to be able to add files using that browser. Also, this is the same problem we had in Tiki 5.x and we were hoping 6.x would have fixed it.
