Description

If an Admin set his Tiki file gallery using a directory to store files and he doesn’t use an LTR language for admin he will have a wsod. This is a regression as it was working (18, 19 may be) before we were able to select an Admin language.

I think that the path to the files is reversed leading to an error that shutdown Tiki.

It will require to have access to the db and set (or unset, depending if the non LTR language is Tiki default or Admin language) a different value (like "en") at : language_admin to regain access.

I’m not sure what’s the best course of action but this should be addressed as a user may choose a language on the install without knowing it will brick the application. It is unlikely he will have an idea of what to do.

  • Tiki should be protected from using a wrong or broken path.
  • Setting warning on install, 18n, etc doesn’t seems appropriate and will harm Tiki image.
  • On the other hand, it is not really possible (unless someone want to suffer and die in pain :-)) to use the Admin in Hebrew, Arabic or other RTL languages.


May be the simplest answer is:

  1. Make sure wrong path can’t break Tiki (or can’t be saved)
  2. Limit the usage of the Admin to LTR language


In all case it can’t stay like this.
