This page is to document the "users" site of the upcoming Tiki Project system being developed LIVE on mods.tiki.org
update: This is actually being added to 1.9 now at TikiFestUK2
Basic Features and Notes
Utilisies all current Tiki features, such as the Wiki, File Gallery, Image Gallery etc and joins them together into a project area.
Upon creation or approval of a new project, the script creates two new security groups, prj__admin and prj_. This has now actually changed and they are fully customisable prefixes within a admin control panel.
These groups can be the used in the various other Tikiwiki features to grant/deny permission to the users within those groups. Then you add new Tiki objets to a project there is a new interface for setting up permissions on these objects.
File Galleries, remember if you edit, to leave the Allow other users to upload to this gallery!
Now done automagically if you have certain perms set
You can, if you choose, enable your registered users to create projects, this is how its currently configured on mods.tw.o. Here the registered user is presented with a form to complete, gathering details about the project they wish to host. THis is then entered into the projects database, but with a approval pending status. A site administrator or project moderator can approve/deny projects. (Or you can start a process sending Tiki messages to gather more project information)
Projects can be included inthe category tree
Project Admins can assign people to members/developers and upgrade them to admins.
As i see the future of this to a powerful software design and collaboration platform, but also with other project management features, such as calendar integration, charting, task assignment etc. But also more towards the "open" tikiwiki development community where freedom reigns.
