This aims to be a profile for installing a customized tiki 3 site, based on this profile, adapted to a Faculty department, or research group, in University of Barcelona (UB - http://www.ub.edu ).

This is a work in progress...


This is a sample profile. The goal is to allow anyone who wishes to view a fully functional Tiki site or needs a Collaborative Community and would like to start with a solid foundation.

Remember that once you install this profile, you are NOT LOCKED IN to any feature, menu or content. Everything can always be changed, deleted or added to.


The purpose of this profile is to generate a quick start for a Univerity Department in UB similar to http://margalef.ourproject.org (demo, using Tiki 1.9.x) or http://www.ub.edu/optics/tiki (used for production, using Tiki 2.4). The profile will ask a few questions.

Features (Quick List)

  • Wiki (Collaborative writing of documents)
  • Forum
  • Calendar
  • Personal Spaces
  • CSS based horizontal Menu
  • Simple Wiki based lateral Menu
  • Many More...
