This question about Using an extension: Task closed

I noticed, that in Foswiki 2.0.0, ChecklistPlugin do not display status icons. I checked Apache log and noticed, that following line is missed in LocalLib.cfg:

$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{ChecklistPlugin}{Module} = 'Foswiki::Plugins::ChecklistPlugin';

However, even after adding it to LocalLib (why it's not added during plugin installation?), icons are not displayed:

Although all (?) dependecies are installed, icons are not rendered by CheckListPlugin.

How did you install foswiki and the CheckListPlugin. The module should have been automatically added to the configuration. This plugin has been tested with Foswiki 2.0.0

Thank you for quick response. I:
  • downloaded Foswiki tar.gz archive
  • unpack its content to /var/www/temporary directory
  • generate Apache configuration file
  • open foswiki, enter configuration script
  • use bulk_copy.pl to migrate topics from old Foswiki
  • in bin/configure go to Extension and install mentioned extension

Did you try to migrate the System web? That will cause issues. System has to be excluded from the bulk_copy,.

-- GeorgeClark - 20 Jul 2015

I used bulk_copy without specifying any webs. Than, I used bulk_copy to migrate 'Sandbox' and 'Main' webs.

If i do not specify web, is it a chance that it migrated 'System' web as well?

-- MateuszKDzior - 21 Jul 2015

Yes, if you didn't exclude system, it will have been copied. I've opened a bug against bulk_copy so that in the future, System will be excluded by default. I think the best solution is to restore the original 2.0.0 System web.

Sorry, but:
  • it seems that CheckListPlugin is not included in fresh Foswiki installation (you mentioned that "The module should have been automatically added to the configuration", but this plugin is not mentioned in InstalledPlugins page)
  • although smiles at System/SmiliesPlugin page are rendered properly, ChecklistPlugin is not rendering them

Although Smilies plugin is installed as well as ChecklistPlugin and I have fresh installation, icons are not rendered properly (print screen comes from System/ChecklistPlugin)

Confirmed. It appears ChecklistPlugin is not compatible with something in Foswiki 2.0. I'll get a task filed and take a look at it.

Your initial report about the missing $Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{ChecklistPlugin}{Module} though still has me confused. I went through a new install of foswiki, followed by the ChecklistPlugin, and had no issues with a missing module.

Item13557 filed - ChecklistPlugin is generating incomplete <img tags.

-- GeorgeClark - 25 Jul 2015

New ChecklistPlugin released. 1.200. Tested on Foswiki 2.0, also verified it works with utf-8 states and topic names.
