How to enable Etherpad plugins in odoo?

on 2/14/15, 5:28 PM 1,185 views

I installed a few plugins in my etherpad service, and they work well in the PAD service url, but when I open a PAD in odoo tasks, it still shows the normal ui(without the plugins).

What I have to do(code, configurations) to be able to use PAD plugins in odoo?

The task I was looking for the test, was looking to the first PAD url I configured, but new PADs in new tasks takes the current url configured in the company.

To be able to update url of old pads, you have to delete the PAD field value in the database. (this will obviously delete the history of the pad)

It seems that I have etherpad installed on the server, but I cannot find the settings mentioned.

I can use the text editing for 'internal notes' and would rather use the same for 'Description' of tasks. 

"Please enter your Etherpad credentials through the menu 'Settings > General Settings > Configure your company data" message for Task description. 

It's an annoying bug.  And it is a bug if its not easy to fix and it doesn't do far seem to be.
