Plugins add specialised functionality to Newscoop, and require support in your publication's theme templates in order to work. Each plugin includes sample templates for your theme designer to either copy and paste, or to use as a guide for their own template code.
Some plugins can be administered using separate entries on the Plugins menu, once they have been installed correctly. In the Newscoop administration interface, click Plugins on the main navigation menu, then Manage Plugins, to list the currently installed plugins. See the chapter Using plugins for details of each plugin available.
The Plugins Manager has two tabs, one tab for Public plugins which are downloaded from the Internet, and one tab for Private plugins which must be uploaded to Newscoop manually. Private plugins might contain functionality which is unique to your publications.
To install a public plugin, click on the Search for plugins drop-down menu. A list of available plugins will be fetched, which you can click on to show details of a particular plugin.
After clicking on the plugin you require, details of the plugin will be shown. Your Newscoop server administrator can follow the instructions to begin the download and installation process. Each line ends with an icon button which enables copy and paste of the relevant command.
Finally, click the checkbox in the Enabled column of the installed plugins list to activate the plugin.
Private Newscoop plugins must be uploaded in .zip format. Click the Browse button to select the plugin file from your computer.
Once the file has been selected, click the Upload button.
After upload, the private plugin should be shown in the table. Click the Install link on the right side to complete installation of the plugin.
The plugin will be now be installed in a pop-up window. Once plugin installation has completed, a message will be shown in this window.
The private plugins list will now show that the plugin has been installed.
This interface helps you install and organise older plugins which you may have installed on a previous version of Newscoop, and are still used in one or more of your publications. In the upper right corner of the Manage Plugins page, click the Legacy Plugins Manager button.
Once legacy plugins are downloaded to your computer, they can be uploaded to your Newscoop server. Legacy plugins must be uploaded to the Newscoop server in .tar archive format. Click the Browse button to select the legacy plugin from your computer, then click the Upload button.
On the right side of the Legacy Plugins Manager page are check boxes which can be used to enable or disable each legacy plugin installed. The red x icon enables you to delete a legacy plugin from your system.
