[resolved] Complete Uninstall (7 posts)

    Hi Scott -

    wonder if you could give some instructions as to how to fully uninstall the plugin...or more specifically, which DB tables to drop.

    Somehow managed to alter the plugin such that when it's active, the front- and back- end of my site are completely blank. Moving the SE folder out of plugins solve the problem, so I'd like to wipe it out and reinstall clean.

    Suggestions would be great.

    Thanks - Holling

    Sure. Remove all wp_searchengine* tables

    Thank you, sir! Just to be safe, I also removed the two setting entries in the wp_options table, then reinstalled via the WP Add Plugin feature. Fixed my problem.

    Best - H

    Great. Did you by chance try the Reset option in the Search Engine settings page? It reset the tables and options.

    I didn't because the activated plugin rendered the front and back-end of the site unloadable...so the only way to disable SE was to move the folder out of the plugins folder.

    I don't expect this is a standard problem...I was tinkering with search-engine.php trying to set the custom CSS constant and even backing out of that change (using undo in Textmate) didn't solve the problem.

    Looking for better solutions to overriding the CSS...especially since a great number of CSS rules are set to !important, which makes styling this puppy slightly tricky (and time consuming).

    I haven't mentioned, but thanks for this plugin -- looking forward its support of PODS content!

    Best - Holling

    BTW, just define('SEARCH_ENGINE_CUSTOM_CSS',true); in your wp-config.php and it won't output styles. Then pop in your own stylesheet.

    That did the trick, Thanks!
