Document that restart of Trac Server Required to Activate Plugin

Reported by: joeclarkia Owned by: rjollos
Priority: low Component: MenusPlugin
Severity: trivial Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11

Description

I just installed MenusPlugin on a standalone Trac server. The MenusPlugin was not loaded until I restarted the Trac server. I believe that this is not a necessary step for some other plugins. In any case, it would probably be good to update the installation instructions to make note of this required step.

Also tracmenus.* = enabled is required in the trac.ini file, which makes perfect sense but is not stated in the installation instructions.

  • Summary changed from Restart of Trac Server Required to Activate Plugin to Document that restart of Trac Server Required to Activate Plugin

Do these changes look sufficient?

Yah that helps a lot. For the True Beginner, you might want to add a step of "compile the plugin and install as a Python egg" etc.

Good point. I added a link to point to the Trac Plugin Installation documentation with this change.

I also had a few documentation questions for the plugin author, which I posted in #6057.
