The Technical Reference was written before we were using block plugins, so you won't find any reference to them there until it's updated. You might find this page
to be helpful. Take a look, and let us know if you have further questions. We will of course include this documentation in the reference guide when it is updated.
Thank you very much for looking into this!
However, I modified everything as described, but still no luck... The same problem persists: I can only see the block plugin when browsing to Step 5. Customizing the Look. On all other pages, it is not displayed. I have added it to the right sightbar in the layout setup configuration page.
Could you maybe have a look? I reattached the modified version.
I think it might have something to do with plugin_settings in the database. (context? seq?)
When I delete the records, they are recreated automagically (based on settings.xml?)
