Mods

Tiki comes built-in with over a 1000 features, settings, plugins, modules, etc. This should be sufficient for the vast majority of Tiki users.

However, sometimes, there is some interesting code than isn't (experimental or deprecated things) or can't (because of licensing issues) be bundled in Tiki. This is when mods are used: A modular install for Tikiwiki components.

The Mods feature was introduced in Tiki 1.9 as a tool for distribution, install, upgrade and removal of Tiki components. A Mod can be a feature, a plugin, a module, a theme, a language file, a replacement for an existing feature, or a combination of all the previous items.

Basic principle

The Tiki Mods behaves like many package management software that is known in the unix world, and could be compared to the debian apt, the redhat yum; mandrake urpmi; or gentoo emerge, but adapted to the tikiwiki environment. It's a web-based tool for update operations on some tikiwiki extensions. It fulfills the following functions:
  • listing of a remote mods server, by default http://mods.tiki.org/
  • maintenance of locally stored mods : comparison with remote, downloading of new versions
  • installation of local mods, upgrade and removal

The admin mods interface can be found in tiki-mods.php, provided that you log in as admin.

More information


See Mods User for more information on how to install mods easily through the tiki-mods.php admin interface, and Mods Admin if you need manual install of mods, and further customizations.
