I've installed DatabasePlugin on TWiki 4.1.2 and noticed that only the very first of all the parameters listed in its Config.spec file actually shows up in the configure. I've investigated the problem and found that it has something to do with the sub-headings in the Config.spec file.

Workaround: When I delete the sub-headings from the Config.spec file, deleting lines such as

# ---++ Setup for Remote database table

then I can see all the variables in configure screen.

Either this is a problem with this specific Config.spec file or it is a general bug in the processing of .spec files. In the latter case this bug is of course mis-catagorized.

Minor fix to change the subheadings to <h2>'s
