Development discussion for the NavPlugin

Important variables in the plugin:

  • Prev => PREVTOPIC
  • Next => NEXTTOPIC

Development of this plugin was done in June and July of 2001 by AlbertoBaez and MikeBarton both at Digi International.

During development, we switched from modifying the TWiki.pm file to developing it as a Plugin, according to the TWiki Plugin API and rules. -- MikeBarton - 12 Jul 2001

Since it doesn't put anything in the Plugins directory, it doesn't seem obvious how to enable NavPlugin in TwikiPreferences. Could the docs be a bit more explicit at this point? thanks,

I discovered that the NavPlugin.pm is placed the lib/TWiki/Plugins directory but that it's not getting automatically activated. When I added it to the INSTALLEDPLUGINS setting, it works fine. I haven't looked into why this is. Most likely, the NavPlugin.pm isn't exactly complying with the Plugin API.

So, I suggest adding it to that variable and it should work fine. The syntax is

   * Set INSTALLEDPLUGINS = TWiki.DefaultPlugin, TWiki.NavPlugin

-- MikeBarton - 30 Jul 2002

Silly idea, but could it not be getting automatically activated because there are two tabs rather than 6 spaces at the beginning of the setting lines in NavPluigin.txt?

Why is this is an ObsoletePluginPackage?
