(Tiki 12.x) How to grant a not Admin group (o user) the possibility to use the source editing in order to contribute to specific pages.
Inside permission page i can find only "view source code" but not "edit source code".

You are not looking for the right perm. "Edit the source code" is called "Modify a wiki page" on the perms page.
You can set it per object or per category for each group.

"View the source code" is just a way to watch the code of the content of a wiki page without the edit perm.

Kicking an old topic from 4 years ago.

As Admin i'm able to view the source code. of a wiki page. And I like to give the option to a selected group of users to modify the source of a page.
Looking at https://doc.tiki.org/Permissions and to the global / category permissions on my Tiki installation, there is no longer a "Modify a wiki page" permission as SebD posted 4 years ago.
How can I set the 'edit source code' permissions?

There i tiki_p_edit permission to edit "source code" - I hope you mean the wiki syntax by "source code".

Hi Luci,

I'm sorry for the confusion, I'm indeed talking about giving the users permissions to edit the wiki syntax directly (in my case html mixed with wiki syntax).
And, I fixed it! According to Toolbarslib.php both 'tiki_p_wiki_view_source' and 'tiki_p_use_HTML' needs to be enabled.
The later is only possible to set by global permission, not by category permission.

Exactly so. You can use "view the source code" if -for example- you want to copy it somewhere else (eg. part of it to another page) without opening the edit tool.
