[resolved] Multisites disappear when I network disable eCommerce plugin (3 posts)

    Hello
    Apparently, WP eCommerce (EC) isn't best suited to Multisite installation (which seems idiotic to me)
    However, I have it installed on Multisite but the sub folder sites don't have any info in the drop-downs for currency or geographical locations (I know this is an eCommerce issue but if anyone has any ideas ... ? )

    Anyway. The guys at GetShopped suggested network deactivating the EC plugin then re-activating it per site. Would this be any different?

    However, my actual question is this:
    When I do network deactivate the EC plugin, the sub-folder sites are not viewable (either the site or the dashboard) The page is just blank.
    Any ideas what's going on?
    If I re-network activate the EC plugin, the sub sites reappear. Is this a theme issue? Even if I use 20 - 11 theme, it's still all blank.

    Also, the main (original) site has disappeared from the 'my sites' list?

    Any help gratefully appreciated. Sorry for the rambling : )

  2. The guys at GetShopped suggested network deactivating the EC plugin then re-activating it per site. Would this be any different?

    Yes. The tables need to be created per-site, so that would be the best way about it.

    When I do network deactivate the EC plugin, the sub-folder sites are not viewable (either the site or the dashboard) The page is just blank.

    Delete the plugin folder entirely.

    Thanks so much, Mika. I appreciate you taking the time. This worked (which you obviously knew being the expert you are : )

    My main site still doesn't show in the list of 'my sites though?
    Any ideas gratefully received.

    For the sake of anyone else who might have similar problems & stumbles across this, here's exactly what I did, following Mika's excellent advice:

    I network deactivated both the WP E-commerce (WPEC) & WPEC Gold Cart plugins.
    This rendered my subfolder sites blank (website & dashboard, so no access at all)
    However, I still had them activated as single entities on the main site so I deactivated there too, which made the whole WordPress install blank.

    I then accessed the main WP folder via FTP & re-named the entire plugin folder ( /wp-content/plugins ) to 'Blugins' then created a new, empty 'Plugins' folder.
    This brought all sites back up.
    I then copied all plugins back from 'Blugins' with the exception of WPEC & WPEC Gold Cart.
    This reinstated everything but as 'inactive' so I reactivated what I needed per site (rather than 'network activated')

    Just to be safe, I installed a new copy of WPEC from the 'add new' then also activated this per site (no network activation) then re-added the WPEC Gold cart plugin and all are working correctly now.

    I hope this helps & thanks again to Ipstenu.
