Featurific For WordPress
Can't deactivate or delete this plugin (4 posts)

    I tried this plugin out, but it wasn't exactly what I was looking for. Have attempted to deactivate and/or delete it multiple times and it won't go away. Even deleting it via FTP doesn't work -- I get a Prohibited File Name error and the file won't go away. Please advise. Thx

    Hi there, swcomm!

    I've never seen the Prohibited File Name error before. Can you tell me more about your configuration? (Platform details and such). This is quite odd indeed.

    Thanks!

    Running WP 3.0 on Linux with PHP 5. Deleting the plugin from WordPress generates no error message, but the plugin doesn't go away. Deleting from FTP generates "550 Prohibited file name: featurific-for-wordpress\cached_image.php" etc. for any and all files in the featurific folder.

    WordPress is installed in a subdirectory on this site. Have also tried changing permissions in multiple configs, but no go.

    Hello, swcomm!

    Very strange. Have you tried deleting the files via telnet/SSH? One curious characteristic that I notice is that the error message that you pasted uses a windows-style directory separator ('\') instead of the linux-style separator ('/'). Perhaps this is part of the problem? (This may explain the "Prohibited file name" error. ?)
