A list of possible features that an Administration Panel should contain:

1. Configuration Management

A configuration management module will allow Wikka Administrators to configure system defaults directly from a Wikka interface.
Configurable preferences include many options that are currently handled by the wikka configuration file: root page, site name, gui interface activation, user comments activation, upload path, wikiping server, default ACLs etc. A system configuration module might also let Wikka Admins decide which actions are "activated", and hence which actions can be used by users.

2. User Management

A user management module will allow Wikka Administrators to perform a number of operations on users, like searching users matching some criteria (e.g.: users whose name contains a certain string, users who registered after a certain date, users who never created their personal page, users who set certain preferences, users who asked for a password retrieval etc.), sending feedback to single users (or to a list of selected users), banning users, creating new users, managing user privileges etc.

3. Page Management

A page management module will allow system-wide operations on pages, like deleting, renaming, merging or splitting pages and managing page categories. Operations on pages should be performed in a safe manner, because they can produce inconsistencies in the link structure of Wikka.

4. Referrers Management

The referrer management module will allow operations on referrers like sorting, grouping, blacklisting referrers or visualizing keywords used in search engines.

5. Layout Management

The layout module will allow modifying features and setting defaults related to Wikka appearance, like default skins (with the possibility to edit them), default menus, the default footer and header (with the possibility to edit them).

6. Database Management

A database management module will allow maintenance operation on the database, like dumping the database, importing SQL data, etc.
Pages of related interest: CodeExportdb, WikkaFilters

7. Bug Report Form

A form for sending feedback to wikka developers concerning bugs.

As a rule, the Administration Panel should be conceived as a module (i.e. an action), and should load the above management tools as submodules.
