"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.

"TermA TermB" searches should be "termA AND termB" not "termA OR termB."
This is the default behavior in search engines like Google

Also reported here: [tiki-view_tracker_item.php?itemId=166]

I have found that, if I want to find something on tw.o sites, I should disregard TW's search feature and use Dogpile to look things up. The TW search capability is so weak that it is almost "a missing feature." At the very least, "TermA TermB" searches should be "termA AND termB" not "termA OR termB." The plus/minus markers are fine if you're in the know, but they don't work well either. Using the category/group filters renders a whole different set of answers; not GOOD answers, just different. Without those filters, unauthorized users see parts of pages they are not supposed to see at all. Not a missing feature, a broken feature.

Gosh, I hate to be so negative.

#3757 ADD : Language Custom and all language files system holding - Proposal MOD ADD for Trunk 7x
!#3757 ADD : Language Custom and all language files system holding - Proposal MOD ADD for Trunk 7x

As I can't access in "edit/delete" mode to #3757, I add this one for complements.

The problem of access to whishlist is reported in : #3767

!!Complements :

!!!To be able to hold [FIX] in language files without direct corrections
The fact to have to commit the full language.php for a language when we have to make a change into an invalid translation has multiple not suitable effects :
*you can't follow changes
*you can't check and think about
*you can't validate

The new changes with array fusion make forbidden the fact to alter the (system) language with custom.php or other

I enhance my proposal with the [FIX]-*-language.php files with are merged and not fused with after all others.

The final aim is to make a merge and automatic rewrite of language.php from the merged array "$lang_$lg" from validated [fix].

!!!To files are naturally sorted (normal - UTF8):
# language.php or [SYSTEM]-*-language.php
# custom.php or [CUSTOM]-*-language.php
# [FIX]-*-language.php

the "*" is a part of the name which has meaning (content) and can be sorted.
particularly non yet translated parts can be separated from main [SYSTEM] and marked.
Progressive and controlled (repartition of job for example) translation can be done.

Best regards


PS : I am particularly sensibles on this because I made each day changes and I think not efficient to commit the full French language each day but a little [FIX] with what+date seems a good solution.

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?

articles needs aids to fight spam (e.g. admins see tiki-list_submissions.php at info.tw.o)
I looked today at http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-list_submissions.php and there are nearly 300 spam submissions there so far, and no way to delete them in groups. Maybe that's why nobody noticed my prior submission as info.tw.o editor from last month...

(the user need to be in info.tw.o Admin group in order to see the spam list. If your users is just in the info.tw.o_editors group, you'll see nothing but your own submissions if any.)

A text box to select the amount of rows to be listed would be welcome, and multiple checkboxes to select some or all, like with users, etc.

By the way, how can anonymous spammers post submissions to info.tw.o? They can't through http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-edit_submission.php (at least, nowadays)... Spam hole somewhere?

Feature Areas

I have the idea for a new feature or better to say a major extension of the use of existing features.

Areas would be related with the usability of the Website, where you can assigne content to certain perspectives in a way, that a link to this content will guide you sametime aswell to the content as to the related perspective.

Anonymous users (and registered) would find the content in the context of menus and modules, the webdeveloper decides.

I see "Areas" Important for certain usecases, it could be built with up mainly with existing features - only few code should be necessary.

4.0: editing tiki sheets at tw.o don't keep the changes made
editing tiki sheets at tw.o don't keep the changes made (no error nor warning message shown; everything apparently ok). But no sign of the changes made, not in the sheet, nor in the history of tiki sheet.


I did edit it as user "xavi", add some info the cell A2, save, and no record of the changes.
Looking at the tiki sheet history, nothing is shown either about the edit.

See a related post of users reporting other problems with tw.o sheets since tiki 4.0 (I couldn't reproduce their problem, though).

5x: tracker comments should allow self-subscribe option for poster, like in forum posts or page comments. Right now, lost of interaction and feedback is lost for users until they learn how to subscribe to tracker items....

That was the same problem in forum posts for years, until some one added that feature to forum posts and wiki comments...
However, it seems that tracker item comments didn't benefit from that enhancement.... and honestly, they deserve it...

* emails are duplicated if the user was also selected in a "user selector" type of field, with notifications on. We should check that no duplication of emails is sent: one as commenter, and another one duplicated as user selected in the "user selector" field with notifications on.
See it reproduced in the show instance:
2 emails have been sent in some cases:
u: admin
p: 12345

* Tracker item commented:
+ http://xavi-9794-3214.show.tikiwiki.org/tiki-view_tracker_item.php?itemId=5
* see email corresponding to each user:
+ http://xavi-9794-3214.show.tikiwiki.org/tiki-adminusers.php
* see tracker field definition:
+ http://xavi-9794-3214.show.tikiwiki.org/tiki-admin_tracker_fields.php?trackerId=1
** note last 3 fields, all of them user selector with email notification on.
Update {sign user="xavi" datetime="2016-10-13T10:40:17+00:00"}
In addition, other systems maybe sending a duplicate of the same email message (see https://doc.tiki.org/Watch ), and we'd better add a system to prevent those duplicated emails to be sent.
To be checked for duplicates (and remove them before sending):
# generic (wildcard-like) user watches through the "__My Watches (UI) > Add Watch > Event__"
# Objects
** user watches on objects
** group watches on objects
# Categories
** user watches on categories
** group watches on categories
# Structures
** user watches on structures
** group watches on structures

I'm usure about category watches. Maybe we can leave those messages also, since they are not 100% equivalent to the other notification emails?
Sure, see comments. Issue fixed. {sign user="xavi" datetime="2016-10-14T10:13:36+00:00"}
And duplication of emails was due to some other issue, fixed by kroky6 also (great, thanks!).

Admin>Login>User defaults or Admin>Groups: Ability to Subscribe new users to specific Tiki objects
It would be lovely to set some new user defaults at
* Admin (home) > Login > User defaults, and/or
* Admin > Groups > (Edit a single group)

The ability to Subscribe/watch/monitor new users in the site or to that specific group, to specific Tiki objects.

Which tiki objects?: I would say, in this order:
# 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.

Logging in as user __root__ I can admin the site, and see this user management page. But I can't through user admin after the upgrade.

During the upgrade, the only warnings I saw at upgrade time were:

Allow customization of Tiki-generated RSS feeds, by language (for i18n sites)
Currently, Tiki creates a single RSS feed per feature (e.g., wiki, articles, etc.).

For features that support i18n, this means that end-users will subscribe to a feed that contains items that they cannot read.

It would be nice if Tiki could create language-specific feeds each feature.

You can see this on info.t.o; we issue articles in English and French and Tiki includes both languages in a single feed: http://info.tiki.org/tiki-articles_rss.php?ver=2

Allow integrated search results from other Tikis (or other search sites)
It would be nice if visitors to info.tikiwiki.org could search all of the tw.o domains at once. What I envision:
1. A user goes to info.tw.o and searches for "WYSIWYG"
2. Tiki searches all of the *.tw.o domains and presents the results to the user, breaking the results by domain (e.g., all of the doc pages, dev pages, etc.)

Currently, the search results page will provide a box for users to extend their search to other tw.o domains, but (IMHO) it really needs to be automatic. See http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-searchindex.php?highlight=wysiwyg&where=pages&search=go for an example.

Maybe this could be expanded to fetch search results from other, non-Tiki search engines, too.

allow seing username in user tracker at registration time, step 2 (filling user tracker item)
I've set up a user tracker at registration time on tw.o, when TwCOmmunity group is chosen between the two listed right now at registration time.

This tracker mainily requests selecting a checkbox to indicate that the user understands and will follow the rules and guidelines of TW Community, etc.

I've set up a user field at that tracker, so that we can see when each users decided to join TW Community by selecting that checkbox. And while the compulsory checkbox is not acting as compulsory (due to bug), which users did accept and which ones didn't accept.

Allow to delete old non-valid registration requests + re-sending confirmation link to many users

# Option to allow deleting any user that was registered more than N days ago, and who still hasn’t passed the email validation step and/or the admin approval stage. Or through multiple selection of those users and click on "action on selected" delete. (ionce they are properly filterable). Wish from Alain.
# Option to resend the confirmation email to the selected users
(in one server where we had intruders from time to time, and sys admins blocked php mailing for weeks, many users probably didn't get the validation email... And nowadays, I don't know how to split myself the requests by bots from the real users willing to join. I recently discovered (after upgrading to tiki 4.1 las week), that that site accumulated more than 100+ users like this...., among 500+ users in total. Wish from Xavi.

attachements to forum posts get lost if the user clicks to preview the post first
Using tw.o forums and 2.0 (afaik):

You add a screenshot attachment to a reply in a forum post, and if you click on "preview" first, (as you would do on wiki pages), the image is lost (no tag is inserted on the forum post to help you link the attachment).

However, if you do the same attachment on a post, and click to post it (without previewing it first), the attachment link is shown.

Example at tw.o forums where it recently happened:

according to comment added to this bug report, this issue is still present in branch Tiki5 still (so probably also in trunk)
Unbelievable, bug still present in forum posts in 12.x since 1.x! (with forum replies, there is warning, at least, but not yet with brand new posts in the forum and attachment is lost indeed) {sign user="xavi" datetime="2013-11-22T09:45:52+00:00"}

Avoid huge pages which force horizontal scrolling (CodeMirror, PluginCODE, etc)

PluginCODE should have horizontal scroll bar when there is too much code on one line. This used to work a while ago on some browsers, but not all.

CodeMirror seems to force the page to be super large

Backlinks between trackers and wiki pages (and maybe forums)
In a tracker item, we often refer to wiki pages. From those wiki pages, we should be able to see the trackers in the backlinks.

This will be useful for a ((Mindmap))

Better handling of page renaming
When renaming a page, an option to automagically add a placeholder page.

This placeholder page should be the redirect plugin, which sends to the new page and has "301" headers so search engines know to update their DB.

Better reporting from tracker data
We already have:
* ((doc:PluginTrackerStat))
* ((doc:Computed Tracker Field))

But we would need something additional for the following use case:

We have a tracker with a list of tasks. Each task has typical values:
*Open/Pending/Closed (tracker status field)
*Name (text)
*Description (text area)
*Assigned to (user)
*Assigned by (user)
*Priority (drop-down of 1 to 5)
*Creation date (system generated field)
*Last modification date

This is very similar to:

((doc:PluginTrackerStat)) could provide some stats on how many tasks are in each priority.

Now, imagine each task has 3 additional values:
*Original estimate (do not change the value of this field)
*Hours spent so far
*Time remaining estimate.

((doc:Computed Tracker Field)) could calculate 2 additional values.

* ''Current estimate'' would calculated by ''Time remaining estimate'' plus ''Hours spent so far''
* ''How on-target are we?'' would calculated by ''Current estimate'' divided by ''Original estimate'' times ''100''

So far, so good!

However, we would like to know:
*The total number of all hours of work remaining.
*The overall ''How on-target are we?''

((doc:PluginTrackerList)) coudl be extented to have a report of the total number of hours, with certain filters.

Then, Tiki could be used to manage a Tiki Sheet:

In the future, we could generate ((doc:Graphics and Charts)) from this data, like we do in the ((doc:spreadsheet))

BigBlueButton: no audio

I'm using the BigBlueButton as stadalone and it works fine.
But there is an audio problem when I use it as a feature in Tiki.
Everything works fine except the audio. When I click on the headset it doesn't join the audio server (freeswitch).

I have the same problem on this site:

Tested on Tiki 6.3, 7.0beta2, 7.0RC1 with the same effect.

Blocking query in trackers code
Every now and then dev.tw.o becomes unaccessible. The site gets slower and slower and eventually it stops working. The problem is with the database. Line 767 in lib/trackers/trackerlib.php

$query_cant = 'SELECT count(DISTINCT ttif.`itemId`) FROM '.$base_tables.$sort_tables.$cat_table.$mid;

Under some circumstances this query never returns from the database, runs forever and blocks the complete dev.tw.o database, making the site unresponsive.

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.

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.
