Tikifest Workspace and Social Networking Friday July 31th to Sunday August 9th (10 days long) in Barcelona, SPAIN.


While Tiki has a "friendship" feature, it is so basic, that it is practically "missing". What is missing is proper Social Networking with "transactions" between community members (Ex.: hospitality exchange network, carpooling, dating service, etc) with reputation system. Something like LinkedIn, Facebook or the www.phpbeer.com project.

  • Dating site
  • Hospitality exchange
  • Car Pooling
  • Business Directory - Offer Personal Services (programming, consulting, etc) & also with the ability to market products with links to other shopping carts and websites where visitors can click through and buy from this vendor online.

Current features in Tiki

Missing in Tiki

  • "transactions" between users and a rating system of how each transaction went.
    • Maybe reuse/refactor Mod CC, which records transactions between users indeed?.
  • "connectors" - easy possibility to connect with other social networking web sites, apps and services

How To Implement It

  • Use the Trackers feature to extend a user SN information and Pretty Trackers Smarty tpls or wiki pages templates to display it nicely on the site
  • Extend current Tiki features to support SN connectors, e.g.
    • My Tiki (could serve as Profile Dashboard)
    • User Bookmarks (could connect and synchronize e.g. with Magnolia)
    • ...
  • Use Profiles to Install pre-configured SN ready Tiki
  • ...
