Not sure if this is a general issue with the EditChapterPlugin, or specific to 1.1.5, but it's completely non-functional on my test 1.1.5 system. (Clean install, only used to verify that the 1.1.5 code built correctly).

First issue, Item11757 caused the jsonrpc script to fail. After fixing that, I was getting the following message in my Apache log:
[Sun Apr 15 15:14:10 2012] [error] [client] File does not exist: /var/www/data/Foswiki-1.1.5/pub/System/NatEditPlugin, referer:;redirectto=;name=edit.chapter;to=3;from=3;expand=dialog;id=chapter_sandbox_testtopic0_3;title=Another%20heading%202;t=1334517207

That was fixed by installing NatEditContrib - which appears to be a missing dependency. However the edit chapter is still non-functional.

Once NatEdit is installed, the error goes away, but still nothing happens. I added natedit,pattern to my skin settings, and confirmed that natedit is working correctly. However, clicking the Pencil results no apparent activity from the browser, and no javascript errors are reported. However firebug shows:
  • POST EditChapterPlugin 200 OK
  • GET bin/rest/RenderPlugin/template?topic=...
    • viewing the rendered HTML from the firebug trace shows an Edit window with OK, Cancel as plain-text, not buttons, plus an Edit all link.
  • GET pub/System/NatEditPlugin/Styles.css
  • GET pub/System/NatEditPlugin/default/Styles.css
  • GET pub/System/NatEditPlugin/jquery.natedit.js

At that point it just stops - no further activity and no indication in the browser.

Fix released in 4.30 4.31

Note, there is a somewhat related core bug - Item11760 - that results in strikeone.js being loaded twice in some cases.
