Notes below are for a WebDAV implementation which was never contributed to core and is no longer maintained. Happily, there is now a WebDAV implementation in the main Tiki code base

TikiDav present all kind of Tiki resources (wiki pages, image gals, file gals, blogs...) through WebDav protocol.


(TikiDav seems not to be working yet with OOo 2, unluckily, but it does with OOo 1.1.x).

  2. Unzip TikiDav at your root Tiki directory

  • User access control for Articles and blogs
  • Move all kind of resources
  • Error control
  • Problems with GET request for a categorie (OOo 1.1.3 on linux)
  • Wiki-to-OOo and OOo-to-Wiki bugs
  • Change use of ziplib.php

TikiDav 0.2 Prototype at:
User: test/test (read-only permissions)

OpenOffice transformation is not supported in prototype.

You need a WebDav client to access the Url of TikiDav (OpenOffice, MS Explorer, DAVExplorer...), WebDav clients help page only spanish version for the moment.

The Tiki page testTikiDav can be viewed and modified through Webdav using the url:


It would be great to see the Tiki Feature to import/export to/from OpenOffice Writer (Btw, the new OOo 2.0 seems to use a new format called OASYS, a standard format that will be the same for KWrite and others...).

  • OOo to Wiki -> Could these be achieved by modifying the WordToWiki macro, or something similar? (I'm not coder, I don't know if possible...). Then the info saved as a wiki page in a normal Wiki or through TikiDav feature. Xavi
  • Wiki to OOo -> There seems to be a very nice bunch of php classes being developed (already functional, v0.3) at: http://phpdocwriter.sourceforge.net. This would be great if anybody could include them as a new feature in Tiki!
