Hi there,

Playing around with the Extension Downloader and it doesnt display what is in the xml file.

It has picked up a test file version change that I did and downloaded and installed ok. But the Author, Description and More Info fields havent updated.

Also if I hover over the Author it shows a mailto: as a strange hash.. see pic

Any ideas? The repository file looks ok if I download it in a web browser :s

Repository file; http://mesh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/spiceflyplugin/repo.xml

Cheers

Looks ok to me. I would suggest using --debug plugin.extensions to see what
is being parsed during development, but I can't explain or see what you are
reporting at present.

Yeah sorry trying to make it small enough to attach, find zip file with bigger picture. I'll have a look at the debug log and post anything useful.

So this is for plugins which are already installed - assuming so it looks like your install.xml file is not in the correct format for the email address.

Extension Downloader uses the repo for information about plugins which can be installed or upgraded, but for ones which can be removed it uses the install.xml file (as they may no longer be in the repo)

Ah ok yep thats the ticket. Now you've explain the logic it makes sense :)
