EasyTimeline functional on Foswiki?

I see the re-release of this in march, yet no progress in getting this functional. Can someone confirm?

Install via Configure without error.

Confirmed CPAN dependencies.

Apt-get ploticus and confirmed function from command line.

Yet the topic doesn't render the example, and the warn log contains:

Accepted Answer

This looks like you are using the TWiki version of EasyTimelinePlugin, and possibly an old version at that.

Try the Foswiki version from Extensions.EasyTimelinePlugin. I have been using it without any problems.

If you have them both installed then you need to ensure that {Plugins}{EasyTimelinePlugin}{Module} is set to Foswiki::Plugins::EasyTimelinePlugin in configure.

Let us know how you get on.

Actually it was current. Updated via Configure the previous day. However your reply caused my to go back and look yet again, and indeed Configure:Plugins {Plugins}{DBCachePlugin}{Module}

Still had: TWiki::Plugins::DBCachePlugin (the content was originally in a TWiki instance and brought over to Foswiki).

Thanks for the refresher on checking that. I'd mis-assumed that a new or Foswiki'd extension install, or a re-install would set that to the new plugin location.
