This question about Using an extension: Asked

Attachments are not converted or the converted content not shown


i´m new to Foswiki but i got the MS AD Login working and now i´m trying to make the MsOfficeAttachmentsAsHTMLPlugin working.

I have installed it with the configuration under Extensions. Then i read at the support site if i want to get docx documents working i had to use abiword.

So i installed "aptitude install abiword" on my system and change the entry in the configure to /usr/bin/abiword --to=html %SRC|F% %ATTACHDIR|F%/%DEST|F%.

After this i created a new topic to test and added the line


in it to activate the converter.

Now i attached a docx file and save the page.

It looks that nothing is happening but on the linux system i see at the filesystem the genereated html file.

Why is the content of the topic not changed to the html files content???

I read the docs here:

And so i controlled my setting line to use the correct syntax but nothing helps.

[multiple of 3 spaces] * [space] Set [space] MACRONAME [space] = [space] value

The apache and the foswiki logs are saying nothing.

Any ideas? I can´t find any helping discussion @web.
