Thanks Marti Olivella
  • New Wiki argument Variables, to help in scenarios of managing iso9001-powered documentation systems and such, where you need to expose some info like 'last version number', 'last author', and 'last modif' (for wiki pages and/or tracker items) to the wiki page with a special header to include this information. This way, wiki pages can be printed easily conforming the iso9001 document specifications, etc. Ref: http://dev.tiki.org/item5112

Known Installation Issue: Composer error

For people who install through svn up then sh setup.sh, the "c" command sometimes blows up with a:
Could not scan for classes inside "vendor/smarty/smarty/libs/sysplugins/smarty_security.php" which does not appear to be a file nor a folder.
This does not happen reliably, but it is easy to step around with a simple:

Copy to clipboard
rm -rf vendor/smarty/

Then sh setup.sh works fine.

Known Installation Issue: Timeout when installing with InnoDB option

We are aware that a minority of users have timeout issues when choosing InnoDB instead of MyISAM as the database engine in the web installer. The workaround for this problem is to install using MyISAM and then running db/tiki_convert_myisam_to_innodb.sql in order to convert the databases to InnoDB.

What is new or improved in Tiki 12

1.1. Activity Stream

It allows to create social network activity streams within Tiki. In order to create them, you will need to define what the important events are in your system. Events like "tracker item created" or "wiki page modified" will rarely make sense to your users looking at an activity stream. Instead, they may be interested when photos posted by their friends. The activity stream feature allows to intercept system event, filter them and trigger new events. These new events can be recorded and indexed, which will allow them to be displayed in an activity stream.

See PluginActivityStream

1.2. Admin users

You have many more filtering options to select users from the users list. You can filter by a search string in the username, by exact email, by the fact that users didn't validate their account, etc. All of them using the jQuery Sortable Tables feature.

See jQuery#jQuery_Sortable_Tables

1.3. Admin wizard

See #Admin_Wizard below

1.4. Advanced Rating

Some new functions have been added in Tiki 12.5: less-than, more-than and contains.

See Advanced Rating

1.5. Articles

Links are shown at the top of the page, as in other tiki features, to add a new article or submission, or view/list articles, provided that the user has the permission to do that action.

See Articles

1.6. Auto TOC

Automatic generation of Table of Contents (TOC) for all wiki pages. The page author doesn't have to do anything.

Auto TOC generates 2 tables of contents.

  1. a static TOC - Listed on the left, the top or on the right of the page. The TOC is inserted into the page content at runtime.
    • Example:
      Click to expand
      Click to expand
  2. a floating TOC - shown only when you scroll down past the top of the page. Includes a quick "Back to Top" link, in addition to the page TOC
    • Example:
      Click to expand
      Click to expand

See also: Auto TOC

1.7. Banning multiple registration IPs from user management

Since Tiki 12.3, admins can easily ban multiple IPs from spam registrations directly with just a few clicks. They can also optionally remove the user accounts and their user tracker items, as well as their user pages.

See Users

1.8. Blogs

Private blog post links are filtered from other users on adjacent blog navigation link.

See Blogs

1.9. Categories

There is a new preference so that the object count can be disabled on tiki-browse_categories for large sites (over 40 seconds to load on one example site for instance).

See Categories

1.10. Console

New commands have been integrated in the console.php script:

  • console.php mail-queue:send (or m:s), for Mail Queue (added in Tiki 12.2)
  • console.php daily-report:send (or d:s), for Daily Reports (added in Tiki 12.3)

See Console

elFinder was introduced in Tiki 10 as an optional feature, and it is intended to replace the previous file gallery manager in Tiki 12. It allows using a new more visual way to manage files and folders, with drag and drop features within the file galleries, and also from a local desktop and the tiki file gallery.

Click to expand
Click to expand

For more information, see File Gallery & elFinder

1.12. Forums

New forum setting to allow optional display, in each forum reply to a thread topic, of the Rating by each user to that forum thread topic.

Useful to ease the task to reach consensus on deliberations (in forum threads) by identifying in a more clear way the position (topic rating) of each person on that topic at each moment on the discussion.

Click to expand

See Forum Admin and Rating

1.13. Friendship Network

Complete re-implementation, removing the neglected mention on the feature. Changes include:

  • Configurable relationship types
    • Followers (like Twitter)
    • Followers require approval
    • Friends (like Facebook)
  • Friend's PluginActivityStream on the Friendship Network page (requires some configuration)
  • Friend List module can be used anywhere to manage friends or followers
  • Internal: Functionality exposed as services to allow lightweight integration into other features

See Friendship Network

1.14. Inline editing

1.14.1. Wiki Inline editing

Edit wiki pages inline, in a similar way to the feature Tracker inline edit that was added in Tiki11: Fix a typ-o in 3 seconds. Inline editing is a fast and highly user-friendly way to edit wiki pages in wysiwyg mode.

Click to expand
Click to expand

See Wiki Inline Editing

1.15. Layout Switching

1.16. Mail Queue fixed

Mail Queue has been fixed. See Mail Queue, which can be very useful in very active sites sending lots of notification emails. (N.B. Historical note: Prior to Tiki 12.2 the command was ./sendmail.php)

1.17. Mail debug

A new option "File (debug)" has been added to the "General Admin Panel > General preferences (tab) > Mail > Mail Sender" to allow the site admin to debug any potential issues with the sending of emails related to notifications, user or groupwatches, etc.

The emails are still recorded in the Tiki System Log as if they were sent, but they are stored as files on disk under this folder and file structure:

Copy to clipboard

See General Preferences.

1.18. Mail-in improved

Mail-in service has been fixed and updated in Tiki12

The new things include

  • Structure routing. Link mailed-in content to a structure. User filters specify routing rules.
  • Inline images (HTML email). These pages are written in HTML.
  • Permission checking and ability to block anonymous and admin users.
  • Users are required to have both edit and attach permissions to save a wiki page
  • Possible to auto-assign new pages to a category and a namespace
  • Possible to disable email sending by Mail-in system.
  • Manual email check trigger in the mail-in admin panel
  • Several fixes, including subject encoding

The Mail-in service is a fast way to generate wiki pages, if the content is already on email or can be emailed.

For more information, see Mail-in

1.19. Maps

Tiki12 adds further map capabilities as follows:

  • allow import of map path/zone tracker data from a file instead of the existing SVG draw method of data entry. From 12.1 a new "Index As Map Layer" option (defaults to No) has been added to the Files tracker field for an uploaded file (scroll to the end of the Options list to find this new one). A drop down list allows the selection of the file format to be either geoJSON or GPX - however the map projection must (at present) be EPSG:4326. This new capability overcomes the previous limitations with the Geographic Feature field to import existing data. A tracker should either have the Files field or the Geographic Feature field.
  • have more admin control over individual path/zone display characteristics ie line colour, type, thickness etc. From 12.1 the properties element of the XML-like structured file uploaded to a File Gallery and used in the tracker Files field as discussed above can have a wide range of parameters that can set the stroke-color, stroke-width etc for the individual display object.
  • From 12.1 POI icons now positioned so that the location point is the bottom middle of the 'pin'
  • a 'hand' cursor icon is shown when a POI/Zone is hovered over to indicate it is clickable
  • there is 'admin' control over what is shown in the POI/Zone pop-up box: the bubble/dialog (popupstyle parameter options - in map plugin) content could already be highly customised using /templates/object/infobox.tpl and /templates/object/infobox/trackeritem.tpl - and these can be placed in the /templates/style/yourstyle/ folder so that they are just used with your theme and will not be overwritten during an upgrade. But from 12.2 the popup box width/height etc., can be controlled by a number of new parameters.

1.20. Messages

There is a new option to allow truncating internal message notification to a certain number of characters (you can set it up in Admin home > Messages)

See Inter-User Messages

1.21. Mobile

Mobile mode display has been extensively improved in Tiki12.

See Mobile

1.22. Modules

1.22.1. Module since_last_visit_new improved

Since Tiki 12.1, it also displays the new calendars and their events created since the last visit.

In addition, some icons have been slightly modififed in the JQuery presentation mode, so that they can distinguish similar but different content (blogs from blog posts, file galleries from files, tracker items created from updated, etc).

See an example below. Same content is shown in both displays of the module for the same site:

Using "Fold sections by default"

Using "jQuery presentation mode"

In this example, only 4 sections are unfolded:
  1. Wiki
  2. Blog posts
  3. Calendars
  4. Calendar events
The other sections contain items but they are hidden under the section name.

When you click on the section name, you toggle the display of its contents.
In this example, the Wiki tab is selected (shown with grey background), listing the 7 wiki pages changed.

When you pass the mouse over another tab, its background is shown in blue color (in this case, the new calendar events icon, at the bottom right corner).

When you click, the content displayed below switches to the changed content for that other tiki section.

1.22.2. Module users_list ported

Former module users_list, only available in mods and for older tiki versions, has been ported to Tiki 12.1.
It displays a list of users with many optional parameters such as Real Name, avatar (picture), member of groups, and links to user page and action log of that user, among others.


See Module users_list

1.23. Monitoring

1.24. Performance

Statistics added for Zend OpCache in the "Admin home > Performance" panel.

1.25. Plugins

1.25.7. Plugin Together

New Plugin to use the experimental service for your website from mozilla labs called TogetherJS, that makes it surprisingly easy to collaborate in real-time: notify unique urls, co-write, talk, follow pages visited by your buddies. TogetherJS is alpha-quality software. We do not recommend using it in production at this time, even if it looks promising as a Real Time Collaboration (RTC) tool. Formerly known as TowTruck.

See PluginTogether and the profile Together

1.25.8. Plugin TrackerList

Improved plugin. You can define some parameters to use the new version of jquery sortable tables library, allowing you to produce tables that can be sorted and filtered on the fly by one or more columns, in a similar way to what can be achieved in #Plugin_FancyTable shown above.

In addition, you can display last comment author and date in the table, through a new option in the tracker edition > "Features > Allow comments > Display last comment author and date".

See PluginTrackerList

1.25.9. Plugin TrackerFilter

When the param "sortable=y" is added and "jquery sortable tables" feature is enabled, the list of displayed results show a field on top which allows filtering in real time the results shown in the table, in a similar way to what can be achieved in #Plugin_FancyTable shown above.

1.25.10. Plugin WebDocViewer

New Plugin. It allow displaying many types of documents online, embedded in your Tiki pages.
See PluginWebDocViewer

1.26. Profiles

Profiles have been improved to be more useful as a configuration management tool. Namely, profiles:

  • can now be stored in the local filesystem as YAML files, allowing for version control along with the project changes without the need for an external repository. Among other things, this would allow Tiki's Featured Profiles to be bundled with the source.
  • can now be installed during the upgrade process as patches.
  • allow exporting advanced rating configurations individually and as a complete set
  • allow exporting and import RSS feed configurations along with article generators
  • allow exporting articles, article types and article topics.
  • allow exporting file gallery hierarchies
  • allow exporting menus
  • A set of commands are now available to export profiles.
  • articles and blogs accept geolocation of their content from profiles.

Local Profiles consist of a single YAML file and an optional directory containing the references files.

This is part of: Configuration Management for Tiki Projects

1.26.1. Profiles wizard

See #Profiles_Wizard below

1.27. Ratings

1.27.1. Option to toggle the detailed rating results

Click to expand

See Ratings

1.28. Restore Database

For development environments that need to replicate a production environment, new directives allow the installer to restore the database "Clean Install" from a database dump instead of the default Tiki database.

This feature allows site administrators to quickly replicate a site, test changes locally and return to the original state. Combined with profile development, this allows to test the site upgrade path.

Documentation is available in the bundled db/install.ini.dist file.

This is part of: Configuration Management for Tiki Projects

1.29. Search Index statistics

Search Index statistics are added in command line interface, in a similar way to what is shown in the "Admin home > Search" panel, when using advanced search and rebuilding the unified search index.

1.30. Search all database tables tool

In the admin search panel, there is a new tool.
Tiki12 Capture 20130915024438 825 0

It enables a text search in all text columns in all tables.
Tiki12 Capture 20130915024811 883 0

1.31. Smarty template engine

New preference to allow addition of extra dirs to be used for custom icons etc., respected by the security checks.

1.32. Switch user now has a way back

As an administrator, after switching to a different user, returning to the login screen will propose to switch back to your own user, avoiding to re-login.

1.33. Syntax highlighter (Codemirror) upgraded

The syntax highlighter (CodeMirror) has been upgraded from 2.x to latest stable version (3.16). This brings new features such as right-to-left language support, smarty syntax mode, a many more.
See: http://codemirror.net/doc/releases.html

1.34. Trackers improved

  • Restored the ability to change tracker field type after creation
  • Added the ability to detect and remove orphan files created through the tracker files field type
  • Added an option to allow displaying just the user's items to the user through PluginTrackerList with the param view=user, even if no extra permissions are granted to this user's groups.
  • You can display last comment author and date in the table column for comments, through a new option in the tracker edition > "Features > Allow comments > Display last comment author and date".

1.35. Unified index

Support for MySQL Full Text Search and Elasticsearch as engines has been introduced for unified index. These engines are complete alternatives to the Lucene (PHP Implementation). All user interface components and plugins (such as PluginList, PluginCustomSearch, ...) will keep working and the documentation available in Search and List from Unified Index still applies.

Elasticsearch requires a server to be installed. It provides several benefits:

  • Faster indexing
  • Lower memory usage within PHP
  • Faster searches
  • Scalable across multiple machines if required
  • Better result highlighting

MySQL Full Text Search doesn't require a server to be installed. It provides several benefits:

  • Faster indexing
  • Lower memory usage within PHP
  • Easy configuration

See: Unified Index Comparison

1.36. User Encryption

User encryption aims to a provide secure, personal storage of sensitive data, e.g. external usernames and passwords.

 Planned for Tiki 12.2
User encryption is first implemented in the Tiki 13 trunk (the development branch), where it is currently being tested. It is planned to be included in the Tiki 12.2.

See User Encryption for more.

1.37. User wizard

See #User_Wizard below

1.38. Wiki Argument Variables

A few new wiki argument variables have been added. Some of them were introduced to ease the task to create simple templates for document management and revision approval systems, such as iso9001/iso14001. These variables allow to define custom information layout in the page header (Author Name, Last edited on, Document Version, and equivalent for revised and approved versions):

(id from a wiki page; added in Tiki 12.1)
(site domain; added in Tiki 12.1)
(site domain ending with a slash; added in Tiki 12.1)
(only when in a multitiki installation, site domain ending with a slash; if the page doesn't belong to a multitiki installation, nothing is returned; added in Tiki 12.1)

See User Wizard User Wizard: User Details (through User Tracker)

The User Wizard allows showing a new section called "User Details" provided that the admin has setup a User Tracker and defined the fields to be shown. Those fields can be the same ones shown at registration time (default) or can be a different set of fields from the same User Tracker.

Since the user Tracker can include "Static Text" fields, users can be shown Custom informations for their users, specific of their own Tiki site. Some demostration fields are included in the suggested profile User_Trackers to set it up easily.

Known Issues

** Known Limitations **

  • Chosen dropdown select doesn't work well with jQuery Mobile mode. See wish4671
  • Line numbers in the syntax highlighter ( CodeMirror ) doesn't work well: plenty of space added between lines & text hidden. See wish4840
  • If you do not have SEFURLs enabled, you might get trouble with Favorite button feature: does "nothing" when clicked
  • Some users reported long times when trying to install fresh Tiki with MySQL using InnoDB (default MyISAM is fast) while for others it runs just fine - reason unknown yet. See wish5246.

** Upgrading **

Blog posts containing HTML

Blog posts with content containing HTML may not display properly after upgrading - place the blog post content within PluginHTML to solve this issue. PluginHTML needs to be approved - if you are converting many blog posts go to tiki-plugins.php to approve in bulk.


If you had defined in your former ./db/local.php something like

Copy to clipboard

and after the upgrade you notice that you can't edit some pages, of weird characters are displayed in some rare places, you can try removing that line from your ./db/local.php .

Mobile permissions

If you applied the Mobile profile in the past, and you get a "permission denied" message when you attempt to see the site in mobile mode, you need to grant the permissions to view perspectives to anonymous users:

  • tiki_p_perspective_view

Search Index

After the upgrade, the Search and List from Unified Index may take longer to rebuild, at least the first time that you are with this new Tiki version. If the link "Rebuild index" at the "Admin search" panel doesn't produce a successful reindexing, you can do that on a terminal server side, while setting a higher amount of memory for the process, and forcing an initial clean-up of index leftovers.

Therefore, you could run something like:

Copy to clipboard
root@server:/path/trunk# php -dmemory_limit=4G console.php i:r --force --log Removing leftovers... Started rebuilding index... Rebuilding index done

For multitiki sites, you can rebuild with commands like:

Copy to clipboard
root@server:/path/trunk# php console.php index:rebuild --site=site1.example.com root@server:/path/trunk# php console.php index:rebuild --site=site2.example.com ...

More information: Search and List from Unified Index

In past Tiki versions such as Tiki9, wrong syntax to point in a url to a specific tab was accepted. Example:

  1. http://example.com/tracker1&show=mod
  2. http://example.com/tracker1&cookietab=2

In Tiki12, and probably in some version earlier also, the syntax needs to be like:

  1. http://example.com/tracker1?show=mod
  2. http://example.com/tracker1?cookietab=2


Some CSS changes were introduced for themes between 11.x and 12.x:

Site Logo & Site titles

The former #sitelogo, #sitetitle and #sitesubtitle IDs have been changed to classes .sitelogo, .sitetitle and .sitesubtitle . Please make these changes in your theme CSS after upgrade if you formerly styled using any of those css selectors.

Strasa.css login background color

If you were using strasa.css theme style, you might miss the background color of the login module in the header, getting white text font over white background temporarily.
Set up theme options to "cool", for instance, and the blue background of the login module will be back in your site.
