Before Item4931 The CompareRevisionsAddOn would replace rdiff by compare everywhere.

Both at the bottom of normal view.

And in the HistoryPlugin.

It no longer works. I only see rdiff.

I notice that lib/Compare.pm is missing.

It is in the MANIFEST but no longer on SVN.

But restoring it does not fix the problem

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 08 Nov 2007

Several things can cause this issue:

  • I have renamed CompareRevisionAddonPlugin to CompareRevisionAddOnPlugin, so it is not enabled in your config
  • Compare.pm has been moved to lib/TWiki/Contrib so needs to be installed fresh
  • Most likely: I forgot to update the reference CompareRevisionsAddonPluginEnabled in viewtopicactionbuttons.tmpl

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 08 Nov 2007

I have reverted the name change. Please try again.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 08 Nov 2007

The name change did the job.

But I had to complete the change by reverting back also inside the plugin code.

I merged it over to 4.2 branch so I could test it there as well.

Fix should be complete. Closing
