[Tiki-devel] Improve search page text?

Hi,

I've been thinking for a while that the language on the search page 
isn't as clear as it could be. Now it has:

Search

Content: [_________]

Type: [_Any________]
        wiki page
        file
        trackeritem
        comment
        user
        group

Seems to me "Search ... content" can be interpreted as "search for" or 
"search in". It's always struck me as strange that it actually means the 
search-for term and not the search-in scope. I think the form would be 
more clear to have

Search

Find: [________]

Also, "Type" is a semantic mismatch in my opinion. Maybe it's 
nitpicking, but if I'm searching for "banana" for example, then how 
"type = wiki page" isn't a clear flow of the message, I'd say ("Search 
for 'banana' type 'wiki page" ??). "In" or "Search in" (whatever

[Tiki-devel] pluginlist "this OR that"

Good morning.. (if it is morning where you are)

I just wanted to check with you all before I give up.   With Trackerlist, does anyone know a way to filter for "this OR that" instead of "this AND that"??  I have two checkboxes in my user profiles tracker and want to list people who check either boxA OR boxB.. for the life of me I can't figure out how.  Any help would be appreciated.. :-)


Thanks,

-Jay

[Tiki-devel] Tiki 14

Thanks to good people taking on their time, Tiki 14 has been released.

As this is one major before our next LTS, it is important we team up to correct the small issues and the bigger
one. :)
This will consolidate our start on Tiki 15.

So far we got 51 download of the package (plus the svn’er tester) but very little feedback.
I would like to work on a tester team so we can report and pin-point a bit more what should be corrected.

Geoff, Gary, Torsten, others ?

Please let me know if you’re up to the task and got a few hours to give to the community.

Have a nice day all
Bernard

[Tiki-devel] Notifications from Tiki sites


Just a note that might help others...

I wasn't getting notifications from dev.tiki.org for ages, and Amette even had a look in the logs to see what
was happening (and apparently it was trying to send stuff to me but i never got it).

I tried unwatching and rewatching stuff, mainly tracker 5, but to no avail...

Then the other day is checked in "my watches" at https://dev.tiki.org/tiki-user_watches.php and found
that "Use reports" (use_daily_reports) had been enabled, and presumably this feature is broken or not
set up on dev, and unchecking this makes normal watch notifications work again. Not sure where that
reports thing came from, but sounds like it needs some attention?

[Tiki-devel] Plugin LIST for articles (to be used with Masonry etc.)

Hi Devs (maybe mainly Jonny?),

I want to use a jquery tile plugin like "Masonry", "Isotope" or
"Packery" for displaying articles on a HomePage.

I have some idea how to build a template for that based on Jonny's shop
example. But I am struggling how to build the WikiPlugin part with
PluginList. Does anybody have some hints for me, how to LIST articles
with formats for introline, title, optional image, etc.?

I can aswell imagine, that we could use one of these jquery plugins for
a "global" tiki.org landing page in conjunction with more static content
(dynamic content or simple div content).

By the way: "Masonry" is MIT, whilst "Isotope" and "Packery" are dual
licenced proprietary and GPL.

For the first step I need advice for getting the appropriate parts of
the articles listed with LIST, in a latter step I might need some
support in building a proper template, whilst I think I will be able to
create a proof of concept template on my own.
Might become another interesting example template to be committed!?

Any help appreciated.

Regards,
Torsten

[Tiki-devel] Why it makes sense to commit to trunk first and then "backport" when developing for your own projects

Hi,

Just sharing because it is probably relevant to those of you who do a lot of custom development for your own/customer's projects.

Over the years that I have worked with Tiki, I have always found that when I first commit new features to trunk and then backport them to the version that our customers are on (which is usually not trunk), it costs me less in the longer run than if I did the reverse, i.e. if I hack it into my customer's site and then upstream it afterwards.

It does seem counter-intuitive, and admittedly the second approach does save time in the short run and in many cases when faced with time pressures from the customer I had to resort to it. But it always inevitably cost more in the long run.

I've never been able articulate why this is the case, or explain it scientifically. Until I found this article (well, actually thanks to Marc for sharing it with me), which really explains it well http://community.redhat.com/blog/2015/03/upstream-first-turning-openstack-into-an-nfv-platform/

Bottom line: The ideal way to work is to develop your features against the unstable branch of the upstream project – this way, patches can be proposed as soon as they're ready. Your product offering may be based on a stable release of the project – when you want to integrate new features into your product, these features should be taken from the development branch and backported to the stable branch, which moves much more slowly, and where the maintenance cost will be lower over the lifetime of your product.

It's just the extension of the old adage "commit early, commit often".

BTW, this article should be on dev.tw.o somewhere I think  :)

Nelson

[Tiki-devel] display:none for elements in /tiki-print.php

Hi everybody,

I want to hide certain elements in certain templates for the case, the
page get's printed.

I did try stuff like {if $SCRIPT_NAME eq '/tiki-print.php'} <div
class=noprint> {/if} .noprint: {display:none; }, but did not succeed.
Aswell I could not find a print.css and did not succeed to make it
working with a custom one.

The specific use case today is to hide the filter dialogue of plugin
TRACKERFILTER, when a bibliographic list of publications is to be
printed after filtering.

Thx for hints,
Torsten

[Tiki-devel] Tiki project opportunity

Hi Devs,

There is the following opportunity we received but we are probably too busy to be able to take this on. Anyone interested?  Please let me know and I can pass  you on the contact.

Nelson

-------- info below -------

Hi,

We're looking immediately for consultants to help configure TikiWiki to meet our needs. Are you interested and available? If so, can you please let me your rates, availability, and how you communicate with clients in the past? (Any references might help.) Are you available for a google voice call and if so, what times? Finally, what mechanism do you use to get paid and to track your work -- for example, many of our contractors use oDesk.

Here are the things that we'd like to start doing:
  1. select a hosted tikiwki provider (to avoid having to install, configure, and maintain tikiwki and MySQL our on linux Apache Server)
  2. determine how to get our gwt/javascript app (which uses Spring Security and a MySQL database of usernames and passwords) to somehow do an "automatic logon" to the TikiWiki (so that user's don't need to log in twice: once to our javascript web app; and then again to TikiWiki)
  3. heavily modify the appearance of "bug submission", "support request" or "feedback submission" forms so that they look as good as "getSatisfication's" or "answerBases's" or "userVoice's" feedback/bug report form
  4. configure or customize TikiWiki so that when a user submits a "support request", they are provided with a list of possible wikis or forum entries or both that may answer their question. If it does answer their question, then they should inidicate that it did so that we don't need to add their support request to our systems. (This is similar to what userVoice does.)
  5. configure the wiki knowledge bases so that it looks pretty (to be described later). In particular, I want everything removed except for the actual wiki content, the comment section for the wiki. (Users will be accessing the wiki through a custom iframe from within my app, so I don't want users to see banner images and a whole bunch of other text: I want it super clean and minimalist, but still pretty. They should just see the actual contents of interest.)
  6. other stuff...
Thanks in advance.

[Tiki-devel] User Trackers and "Only one item per user or IP"

Hi all

Thanks to Marc for spotting some user tracker weirdness on tiki.org, and to Luci in tracking down what was
actually going on - that a supposedly newly created user tracker item was showing that it was created last year.

This seems to be because the user tracker there has "Only one item per user or IP" set, and the tracker has both
a user field and an IP field, both set to autoassign==1 (creator).

So the logic in \TrackerLib::get_user_item() goes if there's a user field, then look for an item for that
matches that user (which it doesn't find because it's a new user), if that's not found look for an IP that
matches the request, which it does find if you (or someone else on your LAN) have used that IP to register
before, then it reuses that item for the new user, which just seems very wrong.

So, what to do about it? 

a) Make it ignore the IP check if there is a "creator" user field

b) Add an option to either UserSelector or IP fields to say "ignore me if..."

c) Add another option to the tracker definition to ignore IP if...

d) Split that option into two, one for user and one for IP

All a bit messy, so any better ideas?

Thanks,

jonny
