Limitations and issues for plugins tested on TWiki Release 4.0

There seems to be no way to automate this, so doing it by hand. This is also based solely on the author's description of same. Other plugins may have limitations that aren't noted; there may be bug reports in Bugs that aren't noted here. Hopefully plugin authors will update this themselves when appropriate.

Plugin Limitations and issues
FindElsewherePlugin If you use ACRONYMs in headlines, the TOC links to these headlines are wrong and do not work. (Noted by KL.)
GenPDFAddOn Verbatim text runs off the page. HTMLDOC crashes with segmentation faults. Some pages don't have a header.
ImgPlugin Seriously out of synch with the svn version
LdapPlugin Should have a limit parameter to limit the rows returned. Should have an offset parameter to enable partial listings and more control.
PublishContrib Doesn't handle revision info tags in templates. Plugin tags that create complex HTML (such as TWikiDraw? DRAWING tags) are not handled correctly. Links to excluded topics still get generated as links.
PublishWebPlugin All attachments are copied into the same directory, e.g. make sure you use unique filenames across all topics in your publish web and in your skin.
TWikiDrawPlugin If you add a map to a drawing by setting a URL on any of the figures a map file is created. If you subsequently remove all the URLs from figures in the drawing the map still exists, but is now empty. There is no way to remove the map other than by manually moving the attachment.
TagMePlugin Tags are lost if a topic is renamed or moved
TopicCreatePlugin This Plugin is Unix specific and depends on the Unix utilities cp and mkdir. For safety reasons, the path to the utilities is hardcoded in the Plugin module. The path might need to be changed depending on your environment.
WysiwygPlugin Incompatible with plugins that expand non-standard syntax. Due to limitations in the browser support for editing, not all functions can be undone. Also, the undo buffer can be cleared unexpectedly during editing, especially when using Internet Explorer.Because TWiki uses a "best guess" approach to some formatting, it allows overlapping of tags in a way forbidden by HTML, it is impossible to guarantee 100% that formating in the original TWiki document will still be there when the same document is loaded and then saved through the WysiwygPlugin. Because of limitations in the browsers, the editor does not support PRE blocks.
XpTrackerPlugin This version has not been checked against data from V2.0.
