I have been trying to work with the Plugin uploader and update-sites for a while now, and I must admit that I find it very difficult to use.
I would like to rename and move one of my file. It is currently located in
$FIJI/plugins/MyLibrary.jar and I want it to be in
$FIJI/jars/MySuperLibrary.jar. How can I do that? I suspect I have to mark
MyLibrary.jar as obsolete and then upload the new plugin, but I cannot figure out how to mark
MyLibrary.jar as obsolete:
- When I open the Updater in advanced mode, and choose “View files of the ‘MySite’ site”, I see the file located on “MySite”
- If I right-click on one of my file, I can see an advanced menu with “Mark obsolete (MySite)”, but nothing happens if I click this menu
- If I left click on “Up-to-date” for one of my file, the “Mark obsolete (MySite)” menu does not appear anymore, but I can choose to “Upload to MySite”, “Keep as-is” and “Uninstall”.
So what is the protocol to rename a plugin? or to move a plugin?
Finally, I made a mistake one year ago by uploading random plugins available in Fiji’s core (3D Viewer, and two others). How can I remove them definitely from my account now? The FAQ suggests to contact an administrator, but I could not find a form to do so. Am I at the wrong place?
