Issues with Plugins

This one is more or less a folow up to #2325 “How can we improve KANBOARD Plugins information?”

It would be great if you would tell oyur problems with particular Plugins here so that we can tryto find a solution (ask creator …) or at least warn other users that they might face off complications if they install those Plugins.

Hey Rainer, it works here out of the box.

Something similar to my Wiki Edits Problem?
Hm!

Yes, I’m afraid. You didn’t change your hosting, right?

Stay tuned and keep us/me informed.

PS: Don’t forget to do a backup (sqldump) of all your instances. Might be an overkill, but who knows. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Yup, you never know. I did the backup immediately after I asked for migration to new server.

I’m excited – or a little nervous?

Cool down. I do not expect any trouble. I had several MySQL upgrades in the past.

I think this will require some manual work. I’ll have a look.

EDIT: Remember, you don’t have any edits to list. Did you try a new edit?

Ever heard the phrase, “Know enough to be dangerous”?

I know my code well enough to know someone took it, edited it not understanding it, and thought they could make something from it by changing a few things. Maybe they succeeded.

The source code:

Plugin.php is a dead giveaway, only I would ever name a variable “$wasmaster”!

To me, the concept of third-parties-based plug-ins (vs “modules” maintained in-tree in lockstep) is fundamentally flawed. They don’t always feel well-integrated, they overlap in featureset and have incompatibilities, they go unmaintained, etc.

I understand any app’s “core” maintainers wanting to externalize this code management cost and make it “somebody else’s problem”, but it’s a nightmare for users, as I’ve seen elsewhere (such as Firefox, WordPress, etc.). It boils down to https://pluginproblems.com
