This question about Using an extension: Answered
Can I install extensions from TWiki.org?
Can I install plugins from TWiki.org, such as CalendarPlugin
What else should I pay attention to before install & after install?
Most plugins should work as long as you have the latest version of the TWikiCompatibilityPlugin
installed. However some plugins have violated the published TWiki plugin APIs and you will get errors with these. The errors will usually be of the form
Can't find package/function TWiki::something-or-other
. If you get one of these errors you can:
- Contact the plugin author to ask them to port the plugin to Foswiki
- Port it yourself (all plugins are open source)
- You can use the
tools/twiki2foswiki perl script to help in this process
- Ask the Foswiki development team to port it by raising a FeatureRequest (could take some time)
for more information on porting status of legacy plugins.
