# Discussion plugin does not work

Reported by: Owned by: akshayg athomas normal DiscussionPlugin normal 0.9

Hi, i picked up the discussion plugin from the download link. compiled the egg and made the changes to trac.ini as shown on the instructions. But i can not see it in my webadmin page or elsewhere.

trac-admin <trac-enc> upgrade


says no upgrade needed.

Of course the top of the page says. its "non-functional". but was not sure.

Is there something i need to change further to make it work. here are relevant trac.ini sections:

discussion.* = enabled

[discussion]
module = discussion
path = /media/repo/TRAC/UNIX_Solutions/discussions

I have to made some changes to make it work. Result of these changes is in the lastest diff in ticket 60. Plugin is visible with this patch but it is not complete so you cannot create contributions, etc. I want to work on this plugin, but athomas wrote that he is working on it and I don't want to do something in vain. But this was a couple months ago and there isn't still any new version.

would be good to have this feature as most of the project management sw will have this feature.

in the meanwhile, will apply the patch and see what works.

Cheers! Akshay

Hi there. I don't really have time to work on this, so anybody who wants to is more than welcome. s0undt3ch has indicated he would like to finish this as well, so perhaps you should drop by the irc channel and discuss how you want to move forward.

Just like the original reporter, I can not make the plugin work.

These were the steps I took:

[components]
discussion.* = enabled

[discussion]
module = Discussion
path = E:\Trac\MyProject\discussions


• Executed

resulting on message

Database is up to date, no upgrade necessary.

NOTE: I'm running Trac 0.9.4 on Windows XP

Probably, I think that it is because description of trac.ini is not right. In my place, although set up as follows, it is functioning satisfactorily.

[discussion]
title = Discussion

[components]
tracdiscussion.core.discussioncore = enabled
tracdiscussion.timeline.discussiontimeline = enabled
tracdiscussion.wiki.discussionwiki = enabled
tracdiscussion.init.discussioninit = enabled

• Resolution set to wontfix
• Status changed from reopened to closed

Installation instruction updated, but I don't think there this problem in lastest changeset.

I spent a good amount of time on this being a newb to Trac Plugins. This plugin does work however once you install it per the installation instructions you must modify Trac permissions for the users that you want to use it... The following command lines will allow you to use the plugin:
