New plugins not working?


I started with the Virtual machine and have successfully upgraded it to the latest version. I am also in the process of switching from TWiki to Foswiki so I already have quite a bit of documentation to transfer. Unfortunately I used the EditRowPlugin in TWiki and this is quite a major addition for me to have. I have installed the Foswiki version and it is shown as enabled in Configure (and on the Admin Tools page) but when I try to use it on my existing topics it simply doesn't even show up.

Please tell me if I am missing something? I did notice that when I ran the installer script it tried to install a new version of JSCalendarContrib, claiming the installed version was not the correct version. I also re-installed the lastest version of this package from Foswiki but that wont even show up in Configure.

I also used the TabbedNavigationAddon in TWiki which is not yet available for Foswiki. I installed the TWiki version but I cant get that to work either. Whilst this would be nice to have the EditRowPlugin is more important to me at this time.

Any help would be appreciated.
The EditRowPlugin is tested and working on Foswiki, so there's no reason to think it's a fault in the plugin. If it is, though, there will be error messages output in the web server log file and/or the foswiki log files describing the problem. Also visit System.InstalledPlugins on your site. When you have more information about what is going wrong, come back and ask again.

Maybe you also have EditTablePlugin enabled and it takes presedence? I have EditRow and it works fine on foswiki 1.04. But I think EditTable and EditRow default uses the same %EDITTABLE tag. So be sure do deactivate EditTablePlugin.

Thanks for the help guys. Lars was spot on. A soon as I disabled the EditTable plugin EditRowPlugin worked perfectly. That was something I never had to do in TWiki so it simply never occurred to me. Thanks again.
