    If you are using Version 1, the old feed files won't work. I think Sirnot was talking about the old feeds for 0.9.2. If you want the feeds for v1, you'll have to get them from SVN in the extensions folder: http://lussumo.com/svn/vanilla/trunk/extensions/

    Okay, let's get to the bottom of this "failed to modify extension" message.

    1. What OS, Browser, and versions are you using?
    2. Open up js/ajax.js and uncomment line 50 so it looks like this:

    document.location = DataSource;

    This will make it so that the ajax request will instead redirect you to the page that performs the action. So, when you click any ajax button, it will redirect you to the ajax handler page so you can see what exactly is going wrong. If you see any error messages when you try to turn an extension on or off, paste it in here.

    Hmmm. That's what is supposed to happen, so the problem must be occurring somewhere else.

    Okay, change the js file back and let's try something else.

    Open up js/global.js and change lines 162 and 163 to look like this:

    function SwitchExtensionResult(Request) { alert(Request.responseText); var Item = document.getElementById(Request.responseText);

    Then hard-refresh the extension page (so you get the latest js files) and try turning an extension on or off...

    After that change I tried to activate deactivate the extension and I got a pop-up with the name of the Extension > clicked ok > then "Failed to Modify Extension" popup comes up.

    however it is writing to conf/extension.php

    Okay, the name that comes up: what is it *exactly*?

    I've got to see if I can duplicate this, because it just doesn't make any sense.

    First off I figrued out the problem with the help of jsanders. Apparently the WhosOnline extension was the cause of this problem. I removed the extension from conf/extensions.php and then tried enabling/disabling other plugins and it worked without a hitch.
    see below...
    http://lussumo.com/community/discussion/2144/lace-extension-and-v1/#Item_11

    Once I reactivated the WhoseOnline extension the problems started again. I will provide you the exact details of what happend though when the error did occur.

    Clicked on Extension that I would enable
    Pop came up with the extension name - ie. clicked to enable RSS2 and the pop text would say RSS2 with a small yellow warning sign before it.
    Clicked Ok and the dialogue closed.
    Another dialogue box opens up saying "Failed to Modify Extension"
    Clicked ok
    Activity Indicator continued to spin and just sits there.
    Hard refresh the page and it doesnt look like the extension is enabled, however when looking at conf/extensions.php it did write to the file.

    yep, can confirm that here too with win + firefox 1.5. With WhosOnline that popup occurs, without it doesn't. The extensions appear to work regardless.

    Okay, I figured it out.

    The problem was that dknowles had a bunch of white-space at the bottom of his extension after his final ?> declaration. This caused whitespace to also be dumped into the ajax pages and caused the error. I will fix the error, but I guess it should be noted here that you should never have any white-space in your extension files because it could mess up other extensions that try to send headers.

    Alright, subversion has the fixed code.

    Mind me asking how you managed to post that twice? I've been trying to confuse vanilla a number of times and always failed :(
