When attempting to change the state of a workflow document, an oops page shows up stating:

TWiki detected an internal error - please check your TWiki logs and webserver logs for more information.

Can't locate object method "webDotWikiName" via package "aj" (perhaps you forgot to load "aj"?)

"aj" is my login/apache/AD login name, which is associated with my WikiName AJAlfieriCrispin.

The apache error log contains:

[Fri Jun 12 16:37:31 2009] [error] [client] Can't locate object method "webDotWikiName" via package "aj" (perhaps you forgot to load "aj"?) at /san1/httpd/twiki/lib/TWiki/Plugins/WorkflowPlugin.pm line 307., referer: https://wiki.kqed.org/twiki/bin/view/TVProd/VacationReq90
[Fri Jun 12 16:37:31 2009] [error] [client]  at /san1/httpd/twiki/lib/TWiki/Plugins/WorkflowPlugin.pm line 307, referer: https://wiki.kqed.org/twiki/bin/view/TVProd/VacationReq90

The plugin seems to attempt to include the login name of whomever last edited the wiki page. This is pretty serious as it stops a functioning application.

This happens when I use $wikiname in WORKFLOWHISTORYFORMAT. Take that out, and the error stops happening.

Thanks for reporting. Sean, the TWiki:Plugins/WorkflowPlugin has a "feel free to modify" policy, e.g. please feel free to debug, fix and upload new plugin version.
