Old Business:

Sticky Login

Motion Whereas -it is annoying to have to traverse from the home page back to where i was when i decided to login, we should change the site config and layout such that:

a) login box is in the top bar (like two)

b) logging in does not return the editor to the homepage.


DT: I see as low priority, but if you can get someone to do the work.....
MLP: I will do it or have it done if it is approved.



Renovate home page


DT: Home page was just cleaned up by ricks99. Please post a specific proposal to the dev list.
MLP: Decisions by email? (shudder). Wiki developers, eat thine own dogfood?
MLP: next home page - the prototype.

Upgrade to tikiwiki 1.10?

Whereas: 1.10 allows - edit by section, redirect, advances in admin and groups, freetagging, etc. Motion: The EB recommends moving on to 1.10


DT: Marc hosts the site, IMO, it's up to him when the upgrade gets done.
MLP: Ok I will ask marc.

Theme project.

Motion: Mike will be tasked to work with Marc and (Gary?) to work on a new theme for doct.two - on a test site first.


DT: There are several themes available on themes.tw.o? Can't we just make them selectable?
MLP: Selectable is ok. Maybe just a change to top_bar (see above). Perhaps having a demo on a test site would be a good thing to do before putting ths to a motion?

Tabled: So as to put the theme before the motion.

Redo modules and menus.


DT: Modules and menus were just re-organized by ricks99. Please post a specific proposal to the dev list.
MLP: see above. :-)

Articles expire

Motion: Set all articles to expire after 30 days.


no more than the last three on the main page.

DT: Or expire after 30 days?
MLP: So amended.
