Website directories are human-curated listings of internet links, as opposed to search engine results. Tiki's Directory feature enables easy collection and display of website links categorized by topic for browsing by users.
The Directory is used to collect and display web site links categorized by topic for browsing by users. It is similar to the DMOZ Open Directory Project (see Useful Links, below).
The user can browse through categories, making use of category and link descriptions, and navigate to increasingly specific subcategories. A search form can also be used to locate a link in the Directory.
Users can submit links to be added to the Directory. The submitted links can be subject to validation by admins or designated editors before they are added.
Any number of categories can be created and each can be indicated as related to one or more other categories. Tiki tracks the addition of new links and the number of visits to each link, as well as the number of searches made. Users can also view "new sites" and "cool sites" (most-visited sites).
Directory information can also be displayed as modules in Tiki's side columns or wiki pages, and new Directory links can be reported in Tiki's Calendar.
