Installing the static pages plugin

I just thought I'd share my experiences in trying to install the static pages plugin in case someone else runs into the same kind of problems as I did ...

My first problem was actually uploading the plugin. All I got was a "mimeException" and that was it. I then tried to manually install the plugin but that didn't work for me either (it just didn't show up in the Plugins block).

So I went back to explore where the "mimeException" actually came from and stumbled across upload.class.php and the comment therein which states that it doesn't work on a Mac. Guess what I am using ...

In the end, I hacked the checkMimeType() function to always return true and that did the trick for me. I was then able to upload and install the plugin.

After that, the next problem was only a minor one: The file editor.thtml is missing from the Classic theme. I simply used the one from the Yahoo theme which seems to work just fine [Tony: I've submitted this as a bug on sourceforge].

Okay, that's it. I hope it was helpful to someone ...

bye, Dirk
