Glossary

Whilst enjoying the company in IRC you may see some unfamiliar terms:

#tikiwiki
the main official chatroom on IRC
BRANCH,SVN,trunk,commit,checkout
Terms used by developers in reference to the repository of files
branch6,branch5,trunk
Different branches of Tiki versions.
cms
content management system.
dev.t.o or dev.tw.o
http://dev.tiki.org - Developer site
doc.t.o or doc.tw.o
http://doc.tiki.org - Documentation site
DogFood or Dogfooding
it’s a metaphor to use Tiki’s features to manage our own development, processes and to solve problems
info.to or info.tw.o
http://info.tiki.org - General information site
irc
Internet Relay Chat. This is our chat solution and main support channel.
module
right- and left-column boxes in Tiki (also can be displayed in a wiki page by use of a plugin). Not the same meaning as in other CMSs.
objects
(need help here. Is there any list of Tiki objects?)
plugin or wikiplugin
extensions of the wiki syntax. Not the same meaning as in other CMSs.
polom
a greeting, usually in our IRC channel. It’s a reference to what was saying Tom Bombadil when walking in the forest “Polom polom it’s Tom Bombadil” or something like that from a J.R.R. Tolkien book.
RFE
Request for enhancement that you should submit to dev.t.o
sf
http://sourceforge.net
t.o or tw.o
http://tiki.org (You are here :-) - the Tiki Community site)
themes.t.o or themes.tw.o
http://themes.tiki.org - Themes site
trunk
the latest in-development version of Tiki (in SVN)
WYSIWTSN
What You See Is What (You Want) To See Now. Common pronunciation: “WizzyWatson” smile Unlike WYSIWYCA, WYSIWTSN is driven by user motivation. It’s meant to allow for larger Tiki installations broken down into workspaces using Perspectives.
WYSIWYCA
What You See is What You Can Access (do not show options that you are not supposed to see). In other words, list and menu items aren’t displayed for pages or features, etc, that the visitor doesn’t have permission to see.
WYSIWYG
What You See Is What You Get - it means while you edit the page you see it directly (as closely as possible) as it will appear after save (shows text layout and styling, etc. in the edit window). In latest Tiki versions we have integrated CKeditor to achieve that.
