Intro


This page is dedicated to the desing of the homepage of Tiki.The pages on info.tiki.org are those first impression pages for folks arriving to Tiki. In order to keep them organized they can not be edited directly on the info.tikiwiki page, they are discussed and desinged here first, then go public



Proposed info.tiki.org layout - add your ideas here!

  • Unify text with promo sheet & use famfamfam icons?
  • The opening page of Tiki should give a quick and easy overview on what Tiki is about with as few clicks as possible
gezza: I think we should avoid using links for the Features, Join!, etc subpages and try to make a tabbed layout where you can navigate without page reload. Currently there is no such feature in Tiki but maybe it should go on the roadmap to have plugin for this. It could be called "tab plugin" and should be similar to the existing "versions" plugin (maybe this one could be enhanced to use ajax and a few more parameters).

Current issues:

  • what to include in the article listing
Tiki News listing syntax
{ARTICLES(max=>5,topicId=>!5)}{ARTICLES}
  • tab switching reloads the page
  • can not center H1, the syntax does not work
::!TEXT:: {CENTER()}!TEXT{CENTER}
Example:
!TEXT
!TEXT
    • Need to use a DIV:
      !{DIV(align="center")}TEXT{DIV}

TEXT

  • anonymus in users can not navigate, when trying to switch tab the page just reloads but the tab is not switched. When logged in it works fine. This is caused by cache! If it need a refresh from cache, navigation will not work. After you refresh (with the green arrow icon on the top), navigation will work for anonymus
  • the first H1 of a tab is not processed correctly. workaround is to start a raw, put one space than press enter and put the H1 in the 2nd row, than it is fine in preview mode but not fine after save
  • having a wikilink in a H1 disrespects H1 style

About the Tiki Project

Tiki has been actively developed since 2002, making it a very mature open source Wiki-CMS-Groupware solution. Over 170 people (external link) have contributed source code. According to Ohloh.net, this is one of the largest open-source teams in the world, and is in the top 2% of all project teams on Ohloh. (external link)

We Eat Dogfood

Our own dogfood (external link), that is. We use Tiki's features to actively develop Tiki. For example, Tiki's Trackers are used for feature requests and bug reports. Forums that were initially hosted using other software were moved to Tiki's own Forum feature. So you get access to tightly integrated and well-tested features.

We Have A Huge Install Base

Tiki is used in tens of thousands of web sites/projects/communities/companies (external link) and has been picked by Firefox for their official support site (external link).

We Win Awards and Recognition

Welcome to Tiki!


Tiki is a web-based, multilingual, wiki and content management system (CMS) tightly integrated with a comprehensive set of groupware features. It is a free and open source software created by a large, international development team.

Tiki includes hundreds of well integrated features. In most situations, Tiki “does it all”, you do not need to find other software to fill in a missing piece.
Because of this, Tiki helps you to easily create all types of collaborative applications:

Use one and only one of the following parameters: fileId, randomGalleryId, fgalId, attId, id, or src. websites
Image portals
Image knowledge bases
Image intranets
Image extranets


Tiki’s web-based, graphical interface makes it easy to configure the features you need. Tiki’s enormous set of features allows you to have the confidence that it will adapt well to all your requirements, now and in the future.

Whatever you are looking for, chances are Tiki has it. Your search for the most feature-complete CMS is over.

Read the Top 10 Reasons to use Tiki and get started with Tiki today!

TikiWiki is Free and Open Source software (LGPL 2.1 (external link)). You do not have to pay anything to anyone to use TikiWiki. However, you may choose to get hired help for setup, hosting, training, etc.

These consultants are active contributors to the TikiWiki community. By hiring them, you are permitting them to spend more time to contribute to TikiWiki.

When you do hire people (they don't have to be on this list!), make sure to insist the fixes and enhancements are re-contributed back. This is good for you so you don't end up with a forked-version which will be difficult/expensive to maintain. It's good for the whole community as it accelerates Tiki's progress.

Subversion updates for all Tiki versions ending January 2023

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Subversion (SVN) updates for all versions of Tiki will end in January, 2023. The Git and SVN combined workflow will be terminated, and Git will be the sole revision control system used by Tiki. The project's code developers are already using Git exclusively, but anyone using SVN for deployment will need to switch to Git for Tiki code updates, such as by using Tiki Manager.

End of service life approaching for Tiki 18 - what options do you have?

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Tiki 18 LTS was first released in January of 2018 and so in January, 2023 it will reach the end of its service life. This means it will no longer be maintained by the Tiki Community, and no longer receive security fixes or feature updates. Tiki 18 users are urged to upgrade their site to the latest Tiki Long-Term Support (LTS) version. Organizations that for some reason choose to continue using Tiki 18 can seek professional enterprise support from a Tiki consultant.

Follow-up release: Tiki 24.2 - please update Tiki 24.1 websites

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Tiki 24.2 was released on September 23, a quick but necessary update to the most advanced Tiki Long-Term Support version. Tiki 24.1 was released just a month ago, but websites using that version should be updated to version 24.2. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the timing of this update.

New Tiki Releases: 18.9 LTS, 21.6 LTS, 23.2 and 24.1 LTS

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

On August 23, 2022, Tiki 18.9 LTS, Tiki 23.2 and Tiki 24.1 LTS were released, and Tiki 21.6 LTS was released the next day. These releases bring functional enhancements, bug fixes and security updates.

Tiki 24.1 LTS has received improvements and enhancements in trackers, calendars, web mail, newsletters, toolbars, wiki structures (page sets), French translations and many other areas.

For Tiki 21.6 LTS, there was some cleanup of old code as well as miscellaneous minor fixes and enhancements.

For users of Tiki 23, the update includes improvements and fixes in wiki plugins, trackers, maps, CKEditor functions, and user registration, among others. This is essentially an end-of-life release so users of Tiki 23 should consider upgrading to Tiki 24.

Tiki 18 LTS was updated for probably the last time as it is approaching the end of its service life. For more information, please see End of service life approaching for Tiki 18 - what options do you have?.

The releases include a fix for a security vulnerability reported by EgiX. We want to credit and give a belated thanks very much to EgiX for his detailed report.

Tiki Project Welcomes New Administrators

Author: Gary Cunningham-Lee - Published

Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware is an organic self-governing project that does things "the wiki way" and, in this spirit, when it's time to find people to join the group of project administrators, we draw from the community or active participants who can contribute time and effort to help with the guidance and direction of the project.

At this time, the Admin Group of the Tiki Software Community Association is pleased to announce the addition of two new members, Habiba Shahbaz and Roberto Kirschbaum. Habiba is bringing her unique skillset to keep the wheels of project administration turning smoothly, and Roberto has been actively contributing his coding skills, managing releases, and participating in community meetings. We are very pleased to make this announcement, and thanks again to the new admins for joining as we look forward to a great 2022.

Another administration change to announce is that Bilal Siddiq has resigned from the administrators group to devote more time to his other pursuits. We thank Bilal for his time in the group and wish him the best.
