Plugins not loading. What am I missing?

I’m attempting to write a custom plugin. I’ve got a development environment setup with vagrant. I’ve created my own plugin

# name: my-plugin
# about: Customizations
# version: 0.0.1
# authors: Alex

I’ve also installed a couple official plugins. Although the plugin names appear on the admin plugin screen, their javascript isn’t loading - even for the official ones. No connectors are being loaded through their respective outlets.

I’ve tried clearing tmp and restarting Rails with: rm -rf tmp; bundle exec rails s -b

Any thoughts on what I’m missing or doing wrong here?


I have never seen this before. Are there any errors in your development console? Perhaps something is breaking the Javascript for the application?

What plugins are you trying?


Thank you for the quick reply! No errors in the rails console or the javascript console. At first I had these plugins:

  • discourse-unhandled-tagger
  • discourse-presence

I just installed discourse-canned-replies and it’s working nicely.

The other two don’t seem to be loading templates into connectors. For example, I don’t see the “Unhandled / Handled” button that should be placed in the footer.

Specifically, the connector I’m trying to access is topic-list-after-title, by creating this file:

Alrighty, false alarm on the plugins not working… I don’t think I had them setup right.

I was having some issues with getting the topic-list-after-title connector to work until I stumbled upon this:

Apparently you need to name the file *.raw.hbs to use raw outlets.
