'Last Changed' module formatting is inconsistent
I had my issues with the way the module mod-last_modif_pages.tpl rendered... the title could be hidden by a "decorations=n" which made the link to the addition changes vanish, plus the link in the module title is a little bit of a break with the remaining styling...

Then I discovered that the module uses a table instead of a OL or UL to format, which is a little bit messy itself.

1.97cvs + 1.10cvs: last_tracker_items yields no results even if they exist
Using 1.9.cvs and 1.10cvs from mid June 2007

Module last_tracker_items reports no results, but there are many tracker items inserted, in several trackers.

Tested here:
http://www.moviments.net/valldelcorb/tiki-index.php?page=prova2 (1.9.7cvs)

http://www.moviments.net/intercanvis/tiki-index.php?page=HomePage (1.10cvs)

Btw, will it be possible to filter tracker item results in last_tracker_items by tracker id, passing it as argument to the module? (that would be great! :-)

UPDATE 9th july 2007:
Sylvieg, it still doesn't work as expected: I updated code from today 9th july 2007 at the 1.9.x site, and then it requested the params. missing (name and trackerID).

Several themes lose first character of module text
Several themes are losing module text on the left margin: damian, nomia, simble, smartiki. Affects text-emitting modules such as "last changes" (last item is number 0 instead of 10), related categories, and external RSS feeds. This makes the unmodified themes unusable for some sites.

In damian.css this seems to be caused by the following near the bottom:

.box-data ul {margin-left: -1em;padding-right: 1em;}

Module semantic_links: Links to external pages not expanded
Using Tiki 7.2, we encounter the following issue with module semantic_links:

We've defined the abbrev. »wp« for links to Wikipedia articles, such that ~np~((wp:Jon_Doe|Jon Doe))~/np~ expands to a link to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Doe .

We've also defined a semantic link type »wp« to mark links to Wikipedia articles, and want to use the notation
* ~np~(wp(wp:Jon_Doe|Jon Doe))~/np~

This works well for the actual wiki page, and the abbreviation is properly expanded into a link to the WP article.

However, in the module semantic_links, the link text is displayed as
* »wp:Jon_Doe«
and the URL of the link is
* »oursite.com/wp:Jon_Doe«.

Can this be fixed such that the module uses the same link text as the
respective wiki page?

(The Wikipedia link type is only an example, but note that it's reasonable for a wiki page to have several links to Wikipedia articles using the wp: abbrev., but still only one of those of type wp(, thereby indicating that the external Wikipedia article and the local wiki page are about the same subject.)

On the Tiki-devel mailing list (Oct 2nd 2011), Nelson Ko mentioned that

»I think there is a ›hackish‹ way to get this to happen.

In templates/modules/mod-semantic_links.tpl, you will see where the
link is generated:

~np~<a href="{$msl_url|escape}">{$msl_item|escape}</a>~/np~

Replace this with:


I didn't test it but it should work if you have sefurl on, since with
sefurl on the value of msl_url should be simply wp:Jon_Doe«,

but the hackish way didn't hack. =;-)

Cant add modules in Tiki8
I upgraded my Tiki from 4 to 8. Perhaps it was premature to upgrade a busy Tiki with many users to Tiki8. Anyway, I found a few issues. I am not sure if they would be characterised as bugs, or just stuff that has not yet been implmented. Here are the issues:

(1) The login prompt kept floating around the screen, appearing and disappearing in random places at random times, so I went to Admin-Modules to try to fix it.

(2) The next issue, is that in Admin-Modules, the tabs do not work. Clicking on a tab does nothing. Fortunately, I can proceed by clicking on the "No-tabs" button. Good idea that.

(3) Editing the login module didnt seem to help. So I came up with a cunning plan: Delete the module and then add it back in again. In hindsight, that was a pretty risky thing to do in beta software.

(4) I deleted the login module, but now I cannot add it back in! According to the instruction text, new modules can be dragged from the "All Modules" tab. But this either doesnt work or has not yet been implemented.

My Tiki is at http://lockbox.seanbdurkin.id.au

Admin modules: Assign user module links broken
When clicking the Assign white plus sign on green background icon in Admin modules User modules tab, PostgreSQL fails complaining:

The following error message was returned:

ERROR: invalid input syntax for integer: "mnu_application_menu"

The query was:

The built query was likely:
select * from "tiki_modules" where "moduleId"='mnu_application_menu'

Indeed, the query would expect an integer argument, not a string. This is a regression from r8873, which changed modlib's interface. get_assigned_module() now expects its first argument to be a moduleId, not a module name.

Global site reference tool
This feature request is for a tool that would enable easy quoting and referencing of any content on a Tiki site, for example, to quote a forum post on a wiki page, or one blog post in another, etc.

Maybe it would be activated by clicking a switch in a module (side column), then selecting some text. Then in the referencing page, when you paste, it pastes not only the selected text but also wikiplugin syntax in which the text is the data and the url of the text's source as a parameter. The quote is displayed like a quote plugin output, and the source is displayed as a link.

The use case that started the thinking about this was a question about how to easily cite Tiki forum posts from a wiki page, without a lot of copying and pasting. Rather than hardcoding it to be forum and wiki specific, a global copy-paste site content referencing tool could be useful in other ways.

I use Tiki Wiki for many of my sites and some of them have multiple domains associated with them. So domain.ca, domain.com and domain.co.uk all point to the same folder on the same server using domain redirection.

The main domain works and looks fine but if I go to any of the other domains everything is there but it is out of place.

Automatic and dynamic page TOC like DocuWiki
Docuwiki implements a dynamic (page) Table of Contents. Would be nice in Tiki.

When the table of contents is auto-generated, it requires no knowledge of how to add a maketoc plugin from the user. The ability to hide the TOC frees space for the actual content.

Try at: [https://www.dokuwiki.org/syntax#tables].

See the screencast about dynamic table of content at [http://demo.tiki.org/trunk/tiki-index.php?page=For+Arild]

A new wiki feature could be added, e.g. "Page TOC". If set, a table of (page) contents is automatically generated when viewing a page (when the page has at least one heading).

Not sure how to best integrate this in the GUI.
Should it be a module that the user must assign (to the topbar?), or should the system manage the positioning? The "module" must be active when the "Page TOC" feature is active.

There is a mouse over pop up ''short view of events'' in calendar module. Options there are export, edit, delete or view, and finally close the pop up. It seems the value of parameter __calitemId__ is missing there.
At the calendar page's click event pop up (which shows more information) the value is correct.

Babelfish links module no longer works

Expanding the Excersise Plugin so that user data is stored in database
The plugin Exercise is a nice way to for students to get feedback on their learning. For an instructor or an admin it would be very useful to have a way of checking student's success. That way, the instructor could evaluate how easy the material is, or if certain students need extra help with something.

As far as I understand, right now exercise input data is not stored in the database so there is no way to track the exercise outcome. It would be great if a table could be added to the database where the this data could be stored and accessed.

11.x: Cartograf applied shows: failed to execute module in header which worked fine before the profile

^About this bug tracker interface:
For some misterious reason, I can't find "Modules" under the dropdown "Sub-category" (cone Area is set to Feature). Hiding those things don't make it easy to find what you look for, besides the ordering in the dropdown looks random.^

I applied Profile Cartograf in Tiki11, on a site like this one http://gavarrespedia.org (on a separate install in which it was upgraded to Tiki11), and after profile application I got this error message at the header:

Failed to execute "capçalera_2012" module
Syntax Error in template "a8e6a8b0c69c18e14a83f1790bf93f51de024ee3" on line 4 "<div class="imgbox" style=" width:708px; height:152px"><img src="dl84?display" width="706" height="150" style="display:block; margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto;" alt="Image" class="regImage pluginImg84" /> </div><a href="tiki-edit_draw.php?fileId=84" onclick="return $(this).ajaxEditDraw();" title="Draw on the Image" class="editplugin pluginImgEdit84" data-fileid="84" data-galleryid="9" data-imgparams='{"fileId":"84","randomGalleryId":9,"stylebox":"border","class":"regImage pluginImg84","checkItemPerms":"y","noDrawIcon":"n"}'><img width='16' height='16' class='icon' alt='Edit' src='img/icons/page_edit.png' /></a> <br />" - Unexpected ":", expected one of: "}" , " " , ATTR

"capçalera_2012" is the name of the header module which displays random images from a file gallery.

Current revisions of Tiki11 don't show this error anymore when applying the profile.

Javascript toggle is broken
In tiki_categories-admin.tpl, the javascript function toggle is used to toggle tree nodes for subcategories. However, that function appears in two places - PHPLayers menu and tiki-js. Ouch.

This worked in 1.9 and is broken in 1.10

Same is true for the debug console and (I suspect) anything else that uses the toggle function.

I isolated the problem - I added the browse categories module - that includes phplayers-tiki.php, which includes lib/phplayers, which has the toggle function...

More tracking found the problem - it is in lib/phplayers/lib/treemenu.inc.php

the makeNewTree function looks for a menu_name variable that is added to the toggle function name. This works for the standard category view. However, somewhere along the line the name isn't passed properly in categories module.

The other complication is that the normal category browsing page doesn't work right with this module.

Oddly, phplayers is not included in the 1.10 head download, so I don't get it.

2008-05-27 00:45:32 prozaq Norrin_Rrr: in 1.10 there is a module called "categories"
2008-05-27 00:41:25 Norrin_Rrr will try it
2008-05-27 00:41:16 Norrin_Rrr the example in the documentation says its for features not sections that s weird
2008-05-27 00:40:51 prozaq oh - yes I think so, but Ive never tried it
2008-05-27 00:40:34 prozaq beg your pardon?
2008-05-27 00:39:45 Norrin_Rrr the section parameter in the menu its to set wich section (wiki/cms/forums) will display the menu ?
2008-05-27 00:38:54 Norrin_Rrr that should be doable
2008-05-27 00:38:19 prozaq so you should be able to copy some of the code from the tiki-browse_categories pages
2008-05-27 00:34:38 Norrin_Rrr yes
2008-05-27 00:34:16 prozaq but isnät that when you are creating a module from scratch?

2008-05-27 00:27:38 Norrin_Rrr yes
2008-05-27 00:27:30 marclaporte the goal would be to show a certain module only if current item (page, etc) is in category X ?
2008-05-27 00:26:07 prozaq eek...
2008-05-27 00:25:45 Norrin_Rrr its seems it works for feature enabled on the site but not for category (?)
2008-05-27 00:25:16 Norrin_Rrr yep i have the doc about the menu under my nose but i don't understand the section parameter

2008-05-27 00:23:57 prozaq it seems that you can tell a module which "section" it should appear in
2008-05-27 00:22:37 Norrin_Rrr for now 1.9.9 but 1.10 soon i hope :)

mod-adsense -> module needs to be updated to new google variable names
Google changed their formula. module should now deal with:
google_ad_client = "pub-xxxxxxxx";
google_ad_slot = "02353245";
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 15;

While we are playing here, the module should be re-organized and default should be a public service advertisement

Current Adsense module is too complicated to set-up as we can read here:

There are way too many forum posts for something which should be really simple to set up:

So, I suggest:

The public service advertisement should appear instead of the current "You forgot your Google ad_client number !" message. So people would know right away that the connection with Google is OK.

By default, it should be a fairly small ad so it fits nicely in a module.

And if the user is admin level (check for tiki_p_admin), then, add a link to documentation on how to set pub-xxxxxxxxxxxx and others...

So, if no pub-xxx number is set, use pub-xxxxxxxxxxxx (which provides the public service advertisement) with a warning for admins.

If the admin specifically wants a public service advertisement, he can set the pub number as pub-xxxxxxxxxxxx. In which case, there should not be a warning to admins on how to set.

Finally, if the pub number is set normally (ex.: pub-1234...), no admin warning should appear.

mod-calendar_new.php module displays strange month view when list view in tiki-calendar.php
Version 2.1 & 2.2

modules/mod-calendar_new.php displays strange month view when selecting LIST VIEW from tiki-calendar.php. The date (numerical) is placed several days backward in regards to day of the week (Monday - Sunday).

Screenshot (sorry so large for clarity):
{img src=show_image.php?name=calendarMODIssue20081023.gif }

This issue appears to be with the month view in mod-calendar_new.php assigned to variable $calendarViewMode. When I select $calendarViewMode='week' this issue does not arise.

I duplicated the function below in lib/calendar/calendarlib.php:

{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()}
if ( $_SESSION['CalendarViewList'] == 'list' ) {
if ( is_array($listtikievents) ) {
foreach ( $listtikievents as $le ) {
if ( is_array($le) ) {
foreach ( $le as $e ) {
$listevents[] = $e;

I modified it to say:

{img src=images/code.png}%%% {CODE()}
if ( $_SESSION['CalendarViewList'] == 'calendar' ) {
if ( is_array($listtikievents) ) {
foreach ( $listtikievents as $le ) {
if ( is_array($le) ) {
foreach ( $le as $e ) {
$listevents[] = $e;

This caused it to be "fixed" but it broke in Internet Explorer by showing a full semester view in the calendar. Not so desirable effects. We've since switched to the week view in the mod-calendar_new.php module with no issues.

For the Google Adsense Module:

Google Adsense Client IDs are in the format pub-0123456789012345
Line 42 of mod-func-adsense.php sets this data input type to 'alpha'.
When the user tries to assign the module, the numbers get stripped from the client ID, which is a required field.

I changed 'alpha' to 'striptags' to allow an alpha-numeric entry and then Adsense output works correctly.

Module "events" breaks themes
Assign the module ''events'' on the left, and you get a weird looking of the left menu, and a disappering content on the right side.

In both cases the bottom bar will be shown in the menu (on the corresponding side where the events module is assigned).
Tested with all stadard themes, for all the same result.

And it doesn't show a calendar with events, so it's useless at all.

Btw: Module calendar also shows no calendar, but at least it doesn't break the themes.

Module box toggles, tabbed displays, and WYSIWYG / Normal editor switching seem to be flaky; may be jQuery interaction
My wiki (http://wiki.alphasoftware.com/, on version 4.2) intermittently fails to respond to mouse clicks for module box and menu expand/contract toggles, tab buttons for administration interfaces, the button to toggle between WYSIWYG and Normal editing, and other buttons that invoke JavaScript Ajax actions.

Changing random administrative settings or themes sometimes changes this behavior, but it still seems to come back.

I think it might be a bug, but I might also have some inconsistent settings.

I am willing to upgrade to the trunk build if these are bugs that have already been fixed.

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)

- 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.
