Description

Any robust forum software must have the flexibility to be able to create sub-forums (i.e. a forum within a forum) if needed.

For example, if I wanted to have a general Wiki forum that lists all the PHP-based Wiki software, that would look like so (example screenshot created in phpBB to illustrate):
Phpbb Subforum Example 01

Under Wiki software (which is a forum in its own right), you can see that there are other sub-forums. The sub-forums are for specific discussions about those technologies, but the more general Wiki software is to discuss

  • Wiki software in general
  • anything not to do with the specific Wiki technologies listed, or
  • a Wiki technology that has not been listed (such as, for example, an emerging one)



So that, by clicking on the Wiki software forum, I would be presented with the underlying Wiki forums, but I would also see a list of topics associated with the general Wiki software forum as described above.

Why is it needed?
Without this functionality forum administrators using Tiki for their forum are forced to use workarounds such as having to add another forum called "Other" that is meant to be a catch-all for anything that is not defined by the existing forums, such as this
Tiki Forum Example 01

and if you had multiple forums, it would result in each forum having an "Other" entry, which is not very pretty.


This has been discussed with Marc Laporte and work should begin shortly.

Keywords

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.
