Clean up of configurations, and some code fixes related to perspectives and areas, and multi-domain perspectives

Marc Laporte Wednesday 02 August 2023

The Perspectives feature is a little shaky, and using Areas is downright buggy. And when you add Domain redirects, Multi-domain Configuration (mapping the domain name to the perspective ID), there are all kinds of edge cases. And it's difficult to debug because we can't easily reproduce a multi-domain configuration.

Victor and Jonny proceeded to a bunch of fixes from 2023-07-31 to 2023-08-02 on 26x: https://gitlab.com/tikiwiki/tiki/-/commits/26.x

I think we should stop using perspectives and areas on tiki.org, and if do use them, it should be on dev.tiki.org, with perhaps:

  • developer docs
  • issues
  • translations
  • security
