Tiki 12.0 LTS now available

Monday 09 December, 2013

New Long Term Support (LTS) Tiki version now availablelink

Version 12.0LTS of Tiki is now available. This is somewhat later that expected due to the additional testing that has been carried out.

However it is only the 12.0 version that is currently available, and we would not normally upgrade existing clients until at least 12.1 is available. We will therefore be carrying out further quality checking and upgrading of Enmore's own sites to complete our validation of this important new release.


If you would like to learn more about Tiki 12.0LTS then please contact us.

{SLIDER( titles="Title 1|Title 2|Title 3|Title 4" width="450px" height="380px" expand="n" autoplay="n" pauseonhover="y" delay="4000")}
Text content for slide 1
- anything can be added here
/////
{img fileId="165" width="450px"}
/////

Where each item of content is defined in the Plugin body and separated by the ///// characters and there are a large number of parameters that can be used to control the look and function of the slider.

New STAT and OBJECTHITS Plugins now availablelink


Version 9.xLTS of Tiki now supports new STAT and OBJECTHITS Plugins that in different ways provide useful reporting tools to display information about content within a Tiki system.

The STAT Plugin provides aggregated/summary information about wiki page additions + viewings and/or tracker item additions - over different time periods.

An example format for the STAT plugin format is:

{stat type="trackeritem:wiki" lastday="a:v" lastweek="a:v" lastmonth="a" month="a" lastyear="a" year="a"}

and the above example will produce the following output from this site:

  • Added tracker items: 0
  • Added wiki pages: 0
  • Viewed wiki pages: 1
  • Added tracker items: 0
  • Added wiki pages: 0
  • Viewed wiki pages: 338
  • Added tracker items: 0

  • Added tracker items: 0
  • Added wiki pages: 0



The OBJECTHITS Plugin however provides more detailed viewing (or hits) information about a wider range of individual content objects:

For example, a format that could be used to track file viewings/downloads is:

{objecthits object="166?Energy_banner03.jpg" type="file" days="300"}

and the above example could be used as follows:

Number of hits on image file#156 in the last 300 days: 49
