I cannot get WorkflowPlugin to work on TWiki 4.2 beta. Have tried up to nigthly build 15048 (though the file says 15054..hm).

From apache errorlog:

view: Can't locate object method "isAdmin" via package "username" (perhaps you forgot to load "username"?) at /srv/www/twiki/lib/TWiki/Plugins/WorkflowPlugin.pm line 445

I attached a small patch for TWiki 4.2 (cf. TWiki:Plugins.WorkflowPluginDev)

-- TWiki:Main.MarkusUeberall - 26 Jan 2008

Does the patch also work with 4.1.X?

Otherwise it may be a good idea to make the code conditional based on plugin API revision.

Fixed and upload. Fix by Markus Markus Ueberall


Fix fixed (typo)

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 28 Jan 2008

Could not upload using build script. Turns out that t.o rejects the convert.pl because of the extension. Renamed the file to convert.pl.txt.
