I've just installed the XpTrackerPlugin, it seems to "be there". I use .pl for the scripts extension and have set $scriptSuffix = ".pl" in lib/TWiki.cfg. But when I press the buttons like "Project Stories Status" or "Project Tasks Status" on for instance /twiki/bin/view.pl/Tracking/AudioEvent#sorted_table I get a link to /twiki/bin/view/Tracking/XpProjectStoriesStatus where the .pl is missing after the "view".

This of course means that the application does not run. I'm guessing that the $scriptSuffix is missing in the app section where this status page is called.

Can anyone tell me who can fix this, or if I have to dig for this, how I can get the fix to others ...?

Thanks !! Bart

Found your problem... To fix it, change the Tracking/XpShowWindowScript topic (you can find a link to it in the XpAdmin page that is linked from WebHome) to:

<script language="JavaScript">
function launchWindow (theWeb, theTopic)
  win = open ("%SCRIPTURLPATH%/view%SCRIPTSUFFIX%/" + theWeb + "/" + theTopic + "?skin=plain&xptopic=%INCLUDINGTOPIC%",
         theTopic, "titlebar=0,width=700,height=480,resizable,scrollbars");
  if (win)
  return false;

Hope this help.

Hi Rafael

That is indeed THE fix. Thanks a million. I made a lot of progress thanks to that fix.

That leads me to a more minor issue: The users in Twiki are typically added under /bin/view.pl/Main/ but the XpTrackerPlugin users are added under /bin/view.pl/Tracking/ , which leads to the need to define users twice.

I guess the above could be by design, but I would argue it would be nice to have them on the same level or to have that as an option, just in case.

Regards. Bart

If you want to "use" the users in Main, just use Main. instead of in the developer & reviewer column.

Hmm, I should document this someplace.

Thx: When going to Edit I understood you probably meant:

If you want to "use" the users in Main, just use Main.username instead of username in the developer & reviewer column. That works smile

And again another topic:

  • When I press the buttons like "Project Stories Status" or "Project Tasks Status" on for instance /twiki/bin/view.pl/Tracking/AudioEvent#sorted_table I do get the really useful table in a daughter windown that has no navigation bottons or address bar. This may look nice but is especially annoying since the daugther's daughter windows (when I click on one of the stories for instance) are also navigationless. So I keep getting caught with sessions where I can't navigate andthen have to close and start all over.

Thx again
