The collectd.conf man page is contradictory/ambiguous as to the issue of ordering LoadPlugin options and blocks.
SYNOPSIS uses a <Plugin df> block in the absence of "LoadPlugin df". Under the default settings for AutoLoadPlugin, this would fail.
DESCRIPTION states "the LoadPlugin option must occur before the appropriate <Plugin ...> block", however this is only true for the default setting (false) for AutoLoadPlugin. This also makes SYNOPSIS more confusing.
The AutoLoadPlugin section then correctly states that "LoadPlugin" is only necessary if AutoLoadPlugin is set to false (the default).
I know this is a bit of nit picking, but as a first time user reading the docs it was immediately confusing, especially because DESCRIPTION makes SYNOPSIS look like invalid syntax, until you skim far enough to see the AutoLoadPlugin option.
