PloneFormGen refuses to install

PloneFormGen documentation on the prob here http://plone.org/products/ploneformgen/issues/150

where if you have a global rule(s) created ploneFormGen will not install. You do not get an error message on the GUI but Dan found one in the ZMI which reads "TypeError: getTypeInfo() takes exactly 2 arguments (1 given)"

The Fix(ish) - well this makes it work

enableGlobally

Dan Peterson found the fix..

  • Go into "site setup"
  • Select "Content Rules"
  • Uncheck "Enable Globally"
  • Save
  • Go to "add-on products"
  • Install PloneFormGen
  • Ensure ploneFormGen is indeed installed by refreshing.
  • Go back to Content rules and re-enable the "enable globally" checkbox
