Categories system

Category are a way to classify Tiki objects (Blogs, Image galleries, Articles, Polls, Forum, Wiki Pages, File Galleries). You can create a category tree with as many sub-categories as you want. Any Tiki object can then be added to one or many categories. The user will be able to use a category browser--navigating the category tree with links to the objects in the category. This can be used to let the users find all the information your Tiki site has about a specific topic/subject regardless if the information is in an article, a weblog or a file gallery.

Some time ago banners were used to generate revenues for successful websites. Today this practice is not that frequent but banners are still popular. Why? Because they are a great way to generate traffic for a web site. Community sites, weblogs, e-zines and many sites can use banners and exchange banners with other sites to generate more visitors, more page views and more traffic to their sites.
Tiki supports image banners, HTML banners (used in banner exchange sites), and text ads. Banners are assigned to zones in your application. There are a lot of configurable options for banners such as maximum number of impressions, weekdays when the banner can be displayed, hours, etc. Banners clients are normal Tiki users and they can view banners assigned to them accessing a page where banner stats are displayed. Including banners in Tiki is easy using a very simple syntax in any template or user module.

Voice Tiki

TikiWiki is voice-enabled by HAWHAW. This feature makes TikiWiki a perfect tool to create voice services fast and easy. Voice browsers are provided by VoiceXML providers and are typically connected to both the public telephone network and the internet. HAWHAW and TikiWiki are optimized for the Voxeo voice browser.

Mobile Tiki

Communications center

The communications center is a feature not found in many CMS systems. Basically, it lets you send/receive objects to and from other Tiki-powered sites. You can control who can send you objects and who can admin the received objects. A special inbox is used to examine received objects and you can edit the objects, remove them or accept them from this inbox. Accepted objects will appear as normal Tiki objects. For example, if you see a nice Wiki page about a specific topic or a set of pages useful to your site you can ask for them and use this feature to receive the pages from another site. The communications center is based on an XMLRPC api to send/receive objects so you can build desktop applications or adapt existing systems to interact with your Tiki site.

Dynamic Content System

The Dynamic Content System (DCS) is a very simple concept. You can edit blocks of HTML code or text from a admin screen and you can display a block in any Tiki template or user module. Updating the block content will update the template. You can also program block content by date--storing several blocks to be displayed in future dates. This simple system adds a lot of flexibility to Tiki. You can display anything you like anywhere in the screen and you can set up portions that can be changed or that change automatically along time.

Comb through a Tiki site to find just the information you want. Search picks through forums, image/file galleries, link directories, CMS articles, blogs and Wiki pages to find the terms you specify. And Tiki compiles search statistics for admins so that they may keep an eye on what users want from their sites. There are two forms of searching: regular and full text. Full-text searching sorts results by the relevance of the match to the search query. Also, search results will be ordered first by relevance, and then by section (Wiki, blog, etc.). Regular, non-full-text searching continues to sort first by section, and then by hits.
