WysiwygPlugin hides the save button and does nothing when I enable it in an Apache with mod_perl environment. I applied the instructions given by Kenneth Lavresen in ApacheConfigGenerator: http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/TWiki/ApacheConfigGenerator. When I opened TWiki and fired Wysiwyg, it showed the toolbuttons minus the Save button and also the toolbuttons got disabled.

I cannot reproduce this from the small amount of information given here; AFAICT WysiwygPlugin works fine under mod_perl.

Please give a detailed description of how to reproduce this problem (including an example on a public server if you have one), including a list of all installed software versions including plugins, and precise instructions on how to reproduce the problem.

I've uploaded a screenshot of the Wysiwyg tool showing the save button hidden. I've also attached a list of plugins installed on my TWiki server. Alok
The first observation is that the editor is fine apart from that button. This indicates it is nothing to do with mod_perl. mod_perl is a perl script accelerator, and by the time the editor is displayed, it has finished its work.

Some questions.

  1. What kind of browser are you using? What version?
  2. The button doesn't appear; but does anything happen when you click where it should be?
  3. Open wysiwyg and hit shift+f5. Does the button appear?
  4. Are there any javascript errors reported in your browser?
  5. Are there any errors reported in the server error log?

If none of that helped, with such a huge number of installed plugins, it is remotely possible - though highly unlikely- that some other plugin is interacting to cause the problem. Disable all plugins in configure except Wysiwyg, restart the server and see if the problem goes away.


I see the following errors in my Apache error log when I enable mod_perl:

What should be the permissions of the WysiwygPlugin directory as a whole and what should be the permissions of the files mentioned above. Alok

Moved this to http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Support/PermissionsForWysiwygPlugin and discarded this report, as it's clearly not a bug.
