Process and release

  • committer acceptance guidelines
  • code contribution guidelines

1. R 5.5

dev repo []
Team Sessions

Main Focus: basic HTML5 support, address security related features

  1. HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)
  2. Content-Security-Policy 2
  3. Cookies


  1. Strict-Transport-Security HTTP Response Header
    • Instructs the browser to always request a domain using the HTTPS protocol instead of HTTP.
  2. Content-Security-Policy (CSP)
    • HTTP Response header, allows server to control how resources are loaded.

1.1. Security Headers

  1. foster http_security_headers() implementation
  2. abandon vendor prefixes -> Content-Security-Policy (Suggestion: avoid prefixed implementations)
    1. Content-Security-Policy:
       default-src 'self';
       script-src 'self' 'unsafe-eval';
       style-src 'self';
       connect-src 'self';
       media-src 'self';
       object-src 'self';
       child-src 'self'
    2. Content-Security-Policy:
       default-src 'self';
       script-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline';
       style-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline';
       img-src *;
      • replace inline scripts

1.1.1. Replace inline JavaScript

Replace inline JavaScript


  1. <script>var dbclick = "page";</script>[..]d-vs-document-onload

//'Getting' data-attributes using dataset 
var showhandler = document.getElementById('showhandler');

1.3. HTML5 Migration

  1. update form attributes
    1. placeholder=""
    2. placeholder="E-Mail-Adresse eingeben"
    3. autofocus

  1. normalize links to other language versions of a page
    • add table: lang_link[page_id, lang, target_id]

1.5. RC3

open issues (add)

  1. add delimiter before page handler (_properties)
    1. min_href()
    2. router.conf
    3. abandon standard_handlers (?)
  2. guide to build templates -> parent file -> template
    1. how do templates work
    2. $tpl->naming
    3. how to process conditions
  3. save failed posts for reuse after forced logout
  4. disable cache for message after forced logout: $http->no_cache();
  5. search: add categories in results and filter
  6. relative time
    1. global / user setting
    2. where to use relative time and where not 
    3. different schemes
  7. invalidate sql and page cache (with common function) (?), which is also checking against config settings
  8. add also footer after hard return, GUI consistency
  9. how to check access privileges for a group, e.g. has_access() for $ -> moderate handler : locking
  10. upload of file without extention -> broken
  11. allow only common reasonable extensions for upload!!!
    1. blacklist MIME types -> implement
    2. blacklist extention -> update
  12. add notification for 
    1. new page -> Admin, Moderator, parent page owner
    2. new attachments
      1. -> to page: watchers, Admin, Moderator
      2. -> global: Admin, Moderator
  13. add default max value in actions: news, blog, files, etc. -> use list_count as default
  14. empty body_r after page rename/relocation -> page needs rerendering
  15. installer: CSS routing using subdomain?
  16. installer: rewrite_mode option ! – dysfunctional
  17. ->
    Not Found
    The requested URL /doc/Bugs/WackoWikiStart was not found on this server.
  18. redirect hashid url?
  19. delete / reset pages with missing language, e.g. 'mo', upgrade or AP routine
  20. allow multi logins (on/off)
    1. add multi login warning: 'Jemand hat sich bereits an diesem Konto angemeldet'
  21. add access throttling feature
    • limit the number of page requests by a single IP address within a given time interval
  22. useful messages for regular users after logout
  23. load translation is loaded before resource for theme lang is set for theme_per_page, FIXED same issue for user theme
  24. add array for 'default' AND 'user' menu so both can used independently (create/edit menu sets)
  25. common header can't be reused for none template themes -> fix?
  26. rewrite_mode setting in AP is pointless if it is overwritten in Setting class

    • <?php
      // tabs theme options =========
      	$this->db->revisions_hide_cancel = 1;
      	$this->db->footer_inside = 0;
      // ============================
      $theme_translation = [
      	'EditIcon' => '<img src="' . $this->db->theme_url . 'icon/edit.png" alt="Edit included page" />',
      	'' => '',

Customizable Logo and Favicon

  1. Location
  2. Options
    1. Favicon
      1. site_favicon
    2. Logo
      1. site_logo
      2. logo_width
      3. logo_height

1.6. Fix

  1. invalidate / purge only a sub set of the SQL cache (?), do we always need to purge the entire cache?
  2. check formatting of log() function -> html / wacko formatting
  3. file links were tracked only after a second rendering -> ?
  4. use common list count setting per user + use it as default in lists for paging
  5. check for avoidable SQL roundtrip queries
    1. e.g. translit: href() -> mini_href() -> slim_url() -> translit() ($this->config['multilanguage'] == true) -> load_page()
    2. fix additional round trips gaining page_id in combination with has_access() and link() function (tag <-> page_id)
      1. options: use object cache or pass variable page_id via link() function:
        • // cache page_id for for has_access validation in link function
        • $this->page_id_cache[$page['tag']] = $page['page_id'];
      2. part 1: http://wackowiki.hg.sourceforg[..]dev/rev/f5f2295a85b9
    3. add object for extending and array with default pages (accessible via theme) to cache_link() function
      1. -> ensure pre caching to avoid single lookup per intralink in DB on each page call
  6. link() -> default: $anchor_link – should only active inside page_body (?)
    • additional check if its better to prefix the id="doc.deutsch.konfiguration"
      • to avoid unintentional mix with CSS settings
    • set anchor id only where needed, minimizes also size of attributes
  7. add option help to action to show all parameters in a info box 
    1. echo ''
  8. <#<kbd>F1</kbd>#> – add css class for kbd tag 
  9. broken list in tree action if levels changes not in order – e.g. depth 1.2 -> depth 2.4
    1. show missing levels
  10. add function to replace random isset($_GET|$_POST) ? .. : null
    1. filter_input # gets a specific external variable by name and optionally filters it 
  11. search?phrase="" -> paging fails with "term to search"
  12. bug: news action takes all subpages – is this desired?
  13. improve search (open since ages), add some measures to improve relevance (time, size, user, filter, ...) and provide more and better meta data for search results
  14. add options to show/hide page related categories at the page bottom
    • themes may overwrite these settings via $this->config['footer_tags'] = OFF
    • allways ON as default for posts in the forum cluster
    • do we need an additional option for the user?
  15. get translation
    1. put lang-strings for action and handlers into separate dynamically loadable lang-files
    2. cache
  16. audit comments, moderation handler
  17. better localization of "users" cluster
  18. replace p tag in toc action -> avoid wrong p in p 
  19. should we allow page names like chicken.egg, might conflict with other settings like tikiwiki formatter option
  20. review concept handling files per page file?get= -> performance, time, resources, necessity, alternatives
  21. Form in preview breaks Edit / Preview form -> produces nested form -> filter?
  22. revisit access right settings for forum posts and menu access
    1. the menu won't show the page properties icon -> annoying
  23. syntax
    1. table header
  24. implement rating hack (but without mandatory JS)
  25. add graphviz formatter to /community/formatter
  26. image action
    1. resize, cache
    2. using library
    3. store thumbnails in extra folder
      1. under files/ or _cache/ [..] thumbnails/
      2. global / per_page
  27. gallery action sharing functions with image action
  28. add a License / Standard Terms feature
    • page / file
  29. add unique log message key to filter events (messages may differ)
  30. use deleted field to mark deleted pages, comments, files
    • basics implemented for page and files
    • open: rollback/restore procedure and handling of final deletion
    • check how we do this for files alone and/or with related page (matrix)
    • WHERE clause from COUNT(*) queries
  31. add meta name= date and last-modified ?
  32. disable registration in default config / disable installer via ?setting? by default
  33. CSS: display: table; for layout-box class (?)
  34. disable global upload for users
    1. only local
    2. only for cluster
  35. TODO: wacko class -> function validate_reserved_words( $data )
  36. add regex for this->config['users_page']/[*]/
    • Yet the engine does not validate the namespace for the user cluster, so that nobody can create a page under /User except his own [UserName]
    • Then we can disallow random pages for the first level in the users cluster except the own [UserName].
    • The register action creates this page usually for the user.



1.7. Notice digest

  • store events notices and compile digest for user [user|moderator|admin]
    • new user
    • comments
    • files
    • changes

1.8. Installer

  1. installer: add missing form label fields
  2. colliding page names with multiple languages with the same name -> insert_page()
    1. creates only the first match, other page and menu creations will fail
    2. Solution: (A) UTF-8, (B) different page names, e.g. index, index
  3. legacy upgrade: SQL strict mode and missing default values -> HOTFIX: set default values manually via phpMyAdmin
    1. see table structure and select all rows with Default -> None
    2. chose change at the bottom and change Default -> None to As defined: and save
    3. repeat this for all related tables if necessary

1.9. Handler

  1. add paging to revisions
  2. review transliteration of file names in upload handler: white space, '-', '_'
  3. clone entire cluster is only available foe Admins atm., it should also available for ...
  4. improve global upload settings
    1. allow groups
    2. set individual rights (only images, quota, etc. for a user, group)
  5. send page as email (like print)
  6. show: add option 'Flag as Spam/Inappropriate'
  7. diff: show time, revision, user and change note for side A and B 
  8. show: Delayed Indexing delay_index
    • <meta name=“robots” content=“noindex,nofollow” />
  9. upload
    1. upload: check if the MIME type of the uploaded file matches the file extension
    2. upload: add form field to chose another file name (?)
    3. upload: add accept attribute depending on config settings[..]ml#attr-input-accept
    4. upload: send a notify mail on upload
  10. unify form label style, see filemeta, properties, account handler
    • make label secondary ->
  11. add service handler namespace ['page', 'service']
    • This is the simplest way to standartize document locations and for the language-independent single instances of service pages, like login. Next step is the separated cluster for those pages, linked with prefix, for example, ((service:login)).

1.10. Formatter

  1. replace icq formatters with common chat formatter
  2. (/Users/WikiAdmin UserSpace | WikiAdmin)) -fails on |
  3. Image links to other sites
    • The automatically added symbol for an outerlink is misplaced here, e.g.:
      • ((
  4. Wacko is spamming BRs, in between everything
  5. Wacko is putting around DIV elements = Plain Simple Bullshit -> bugs:375
    1. should not set paragraphs in cases like
    2. <p class="auto" id="p96596-1"><!--notypo--><pre class="code">
      <p class="auto" id="p21312-1"><!--notypo--><div class="layout-box">
    3. leads to invalid html tag nesting
  6. Error: Bad value 4 for attribute type on element ol.
    1. see $new_indent_type in wackoformatter -> error prone
      • 1. hallo
            5. should not take the number but 1, same for i, I, a, A
    2. Block elements inside inline elements
  7. even if wiki_links were turned off (disable_wikilinks) the formatter should try to form links for in intralinks with at least one slash (?) like
    • /Dev/Release/R50/ReleaseNotes#h1433-7
  8. place holder
    1. div.image {
      	width:            100px;
      	height:           100px;
      	background-image: url('data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAAEAAAABCAQAAAC1HAwCAAAAC0lEQVR4nGP6zwAAAgcBApocMXEAAAAASUVORK5CYII=');
  9. allow case insensitive matching of file links, e.g. File:image.jpg
  10. add option to add rel= noreferrer and nofollow to external links
  11. breaks quote
  12. ((image.jpg)) shows images from image/ folder ?
  13. display of correct headings inside wrapper %%(wacko wrapper="shade") with toc is broken
  15. <[ ]> eats blank line in quote, undesired
  16. broken nested quote
    • <[block
      <[nested quote]>

1.11. Cache

1.12. Admin Panel

  1. add Check for Updates button in Admin panel: /Download/VersionCheck
  2. Synchronizing data: update comment count for page if out of sync
  3. upload module
      Before adding random file/MIME types: please think about possible security issues.
      For example HTML (.htm, .html), JavaScript (.js) and PHP (.php) file are types you’d better avoid as they can be “executed” on your server where you really would not want that to happen. For most of these kind of files, this should not be a problem though as these files are better off being compressed into a ZIP file anyway.
      Only add file types that you REALLY need and that you are comfortable with.
  4. user management
    • deactivate / delete inactive users
      • criteria
      • actions
  5. add module to filter, moderate and manage pages, comments, (files)
    1. see modules for content like pages
  6. recovery mode: CSS and images won't load
  7. use collgroup for col span % width
    • <colgroup>
                  <col span="1" width="10%">
                  <col span="1" width="5%">
                  <col span="1" width="5%">
                  <col span="1" width="45%">
                  <col span="1" width="15%">
                  <col span="1" width="10%">
                  <col span="1" width="10%">
    • <thead class="data-head">
              <tr class="">
      <tbody id="table-section-one">
      <tbody id="table-section-two">

1.13. Database

  2. /Dev/Guidelines/SQL/SQLmodes

1.13.1. Check for SQL STRICT mode violations

  1. Using GROUP BY and selecting an ambiguous column
  2. Inserting the non standard zero date into a datetime column
  3. Inserting a 20 character string into a 10 character column
  4. Division by zero
  5. Inserting a negative value into an unsigned column

so far

  1. #1406 – Data too long for column 'description' at row 1
    1. set HTML maxlength="DB_FIELDSIZE" for all (VAR)CHAR form field
      • suggested (JS hint – might differ in some cases – smaller, e.g. meta description 160, meta title 60) + database field size (mandatory enforcement)
      • JS hint: You have <strong>60</strong> characters left
    2. set PHP length check before passing to INPUT / UPDATE
  2. #1055 – 'dev.g.group_name' isn't in GROUP BY

`DIGEST_TEXT` AS `query`,
`COUNT_STAR` AS `exec_count`,
`SUM_ERRORS` AS `errors`,
(ifnull((`SUM_ERRORS` / nullif(`COUNT_STAR`,0)),0) * 100) AS `error_pct`,
`SUM_WARNINGS` AS `warnings`,
(ifnull((`SUM_WARNINGS` / nullif(`COUNT_STAR`,0)),0) * 100) AS `warning_pct`,
`FIRST_SEEN` AS `first_seen`,
`LAST_SEEN` AS `last_seen`,
`DIGEST` AS `digest`
((`SUM_ERRORS` > 0) OR (`SUM_WARNINGS` > 0))

1.14. WikiEdit

  1. use only one popup for new link, having link and link description together
  2. popup for tables

1.15. Translations

-> /Dev/Release/R55/Translations


  1. "\n\n"
    "Click on the following link to view the page:\n\n"
    • function notify_watcher

Refactor message sets, e.g. use only a common set for generic messages 'CancelButton'

  • 199: 'ACLCancelButton' => 'Cancel',
  • 242: 'CategoriesCancelButton' => 'Cancel',
  • 277: 'MetaCancelButton' => 'Cancel',
  • 280: 'EditCancelButton' => 'Cancel',
  • 964: 'ModerateDecline' => 'Cancel',
  • 1.066: 'PollsCancel' => 'cancel',

1.15.1. improve notifications

-> Notifications

  1. 'EmailRegistered' => 'You\'ve successfully registered at %1.'."\n".'Your username: %2'."\n\n".'If you want to receive notifications, you must click on the link below or copy it to a web browser.'."\n".'%3'."\n\n".'Please return to the Wiki and login with your new username and password.'."\n\n\n".'If you did not request any registration, ignore this message and nothing will happen.'."\n\n".'Do not reply to this message'."\n\n".'',
  2. revisit all email message sets

1.16. Usability issues

  1. When should I use a select box instead of radio buttons?
  2. Not indicating an active form field
    • e.g.
      textarea:focus {
          border: 1px solid red; }
    • You can use the ‘:focus’ selector on lots of elements, but it’s super handy when used on inputs and textareas to indicate that the field is active. Add CSS styling such as a highlighted border, or a subtle change to the background color.
  3. forms with checkboxes and options in lists
    • e.g. category handler or users in admin panel
    • assignment of form buttons
  4. usage of new page handler
    • seen in many fresh installs, users adding sub pages to HomePage/subpage
      • this is possible but is it really desired and understood, should we filter out system pages as pre-provided cluster in the /new [page] handler?
  5. make name spaces for users and groups more intuitive accessible
    1. users/nickname/userspace/..
    2. groups/usability/groupspace/..
  6. add ability to easily create groups and to add group members
    1. suggestions?
  7. GUI inconsistencies
    1. handler
    2. actions
    3. message boxes
  8. Your session has timed out. Please sign in again.
    2. I wish more developers would test their web applications for session timeout issues. Despite all rumors to the contrary, your users will not be dedicating their entire lives to using your web application in a punctual and timely manner. They have phone calls to take, meetings to go to, other websites and applications to attend to.

      Is it really fair to kick users all the way out of your web application, or worse, blindly reject data they've submitted — just because they were impudent enough to wait a few hours since their last supplication to the web server gods? In most web apps, the penance is awfully severe for such a common sin.



1.17. Libs

  1. update PHPMailer to v6.0
  2. update Hashids to v2.0

1.18. Extentions

1.19. Refactoring

  1. start replacing magic numbers at least with true and false where possible
  2. erode the mountain of technical debt

1.20. Staging Area

  1. blog action (will replace news action)
  2. snippet action
  3. forum, topics action
  4. Admin Panel
    1. refactor -> antipatterns
    2. bad behaviour module
    3. list and check each module, assign status
  5. moderate handler -> quite a mess
  6. poll actions -> quite a mess

1.21. Ideas

  1. spam / badword handling -> bad_words($text) function
    3. What you need is a good way for users to flag inappropriate content and a mechanism to deal with it swiftly. One way is to automatically hide/remove content if it's been flagged more than X times.
  2. HTML5 media action: {{media type="[audio|video|flash]" source=http://.... [width=000] [height=000] [...some other options...]}}
  3. test PHPThumb alternatives
  4. Composer
  6. as extension
    1. https://www.smashingmagazine.c[..]-for-print-with-css/

1.22. Themes

  1. new mobile ready theme / layout -> on hold (we got a new template engine!)

Flexbox vs Grid

  1. Flexbox: content dictates layout
  2. Grid: container dictates layout (to some extent)

Flexbox is great, it just isn't the best thing for overall page layouts.
Flexbox and grid play well together, and are a huge step forward from the float & table hacks they replace. The sooner we can use them both in production, the better.

default theme

  • change blockquote
    • box-shadow: 0 0 6px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);
  • add option to hide $this->config['site_name'] in theme header, e.g.: WackoWiki: To Do R5.5 -> To Do R5.5
  • min-height: 200px for .article, #page

2. Unscheduled

2.1. Most Annoying Bugs

2.2. Core

  1. Extended Acls
  2. WackoFormatter: conversion from & to &
    1. You used an unescaped ampersand "&": this may be valid in some contexts, but it is recommended to use "&", which is always safe.
  3. place help text beside the acl settings and Registration (WikiName) for instance
  4. if ($method && $method != "show") unset($wacko->config["youarehere_text"]);
  5. /Users/DidierSpaier/ProposedSpecificationsForLanguagesHolding
  6. replace remaining $_REQUEST where possible with $_POST or $_GET
  7. validate_reserved_words
  8. inherit theme from parent page
  9. config['hide_comments'] == true surpresses also recentycommented action what is not intended if you only want hide the comment panel
    • config['footer_comments'] -> only perpage
    • config['enable_comments'] -> global (incomplete implementation) -> see function user_allowed_comments()
  10. add license option (global / per page) to label pages / cluster and set them as meta tag and in footer
    1. footer: <a href="">CC-BY 3.0</a>
    2. meta tag: <link rel="license" href="" />
  11. add namespaces for 
    1. category
    2. account
    3. ...
  12.[..]ccess_control#Origin (CSRF protection)
  13. add .java and .exe in upload filter
  14. rewrite search action

2.3. Cache

  • bugs:321 – view cache should also depend on language and theme

2.4. Themes

  1. <meta name='robots' content='index,follow,noarchive,noodp' />
  2. add compatible WackoWiki version to themes and check against current version
3. missing language in header / meta if !$this->page

2.5. Actions

  1. add more checks to registration
    1. email restrictions like domain etc.
  2. – broken redirect after auto logout
  3. add filter [lang|category|etc] in pageindex, search, changes, ...

2.6. Handlers

  1. category: indicate the language of the shown categories
  2. Report this page
  3. show: it should also be possible to get an page via the 'page_id' (as permanent reference, eg. for external applications)
    1. redirect to tag to avoid double content
  4. upload: add option to 'Overwrite existing attachment of same name'
    • if same owner / admin
  5. page creation: check if new tag is too long and give a warnig -> VARCHAR(255), this cas is rather probably but possible
  6. Warn users when they try to move their user page that their account will not be renamed
  7. permissions: changing page owner also changes owner of the attached comments for the user doing the transition
    AND owner_id='".quote($this->dblink, $this->get_user_id())."'
    • adding option for comments (default off)

2.7. Formatters

  1. cleanwacko-> strip also file: links and formatter options (hl php ...)

2.8. Installer

  1. autodetect the language on the first page
  2. create a robot.txt with the installer
    • this makes only sense if the file is located behind the first slash / in the url else it will be ignored
  3. add better help box:
    ===Getting Help===
    To get help with WackoWiki, visit the Documentation - the wiki and forums are excellent resources.

2.8.1. Upgrade

  1. for Upgrade insert other aliases also in groups table
    • $config["aliases"] = array("Admins" => $config["admin_name"]);
  2. the installer asks for the Wiki admin password but ignores it later, so tho old password will be used

2.9. Database

2.10. Admin Panel

  1. protect Admins group and Admin user
  2. allow multiple admins login with personal credentials in addition to recovery password login (in case of db corruption)
  3. translate message sets in proper English
  4. Localize Admin panel -> admin/lang/xy.php
  5. refactor sections

2.11. Privacy Policy

  • hide user related data in users action for [Guest | etc.]
    • last login
    • statistics
    • group memberships

2.12. Testing

  • create test pages
  • SQL cache: $this->load_all/load_single($sql, $cache); $cache = [0|1] -> bugs:308
    • run debug 3 to identify costly queries -> if so test it with the parameter set for cache if you get better results (actions, hacks, handlers, core)
      • $cache is already set in some queries

2.13. Debugging

2.14. PHP Notices and Warnings
