This is through email :

I am a TWiki user at a major software company. I maintain a few webs and use some moderately advanced plugins but do not own the instance (or have the knowledge to if I wanted to). I want to use the FormQuery plugin but was having problems. The sysadmin found the requirement that:

"The variable %FORMQUERYPLUGIN_ENABLE% must be set either globally or in the web where you want to use it."

I would encourage that this requirement be made more obvious in the documentation so that a novice such as myself can implement the tool without having to bug the sysadmin.

I don't know how to log a TWiki bug (and don't care to learn) so I'm emailing you directly. It took way longer than I would have preferred to find a way to contact someone for this, I don't know how involved you are with this plugin but you've got the only email address I could find.

I suspect this plugin isn't widely used, I found it a little tough to find info on and I think I was the first person to ask our sysadmin about it. It does seem very powerful (but I won't know for sure for a week or three).

Thank you,

Brock Blatter
