      1. Thanks john,
        I installed EPL from the windows package, and I have problems running npm to configure node.js to work behind the proxy of my company. That’s why I asked for downloads…
        I succeeded in downloading them from your git repo, but don’t know how to install them manually. I tried putting them in node_modules or node_modulesep_etherpad-litenode_modules, but ep_adminpads failed to answer on /admin/pads for example…

        By the way, I just want to say thanks to all you folks, I’ve been following the project since Google opensourced it and you’ve made a good job so far !

  1. ‘http://yoursite.com/admin/plugins’ doesn’t work.
    Where can we find it?

  2. Thanks John!
    This looks very helpful.

    Am just new with Etherpad-lite.

    Works like a charme in general. Unfortunately I can’t get access the plugins. I am getting “Cannot GET /plugins” (same with settings) in the browser as an error message.

    Can you
