[resolved] Cannot deactivate this plugin (5 posts)

    Every time I try to deactivate this plugin, it bounces me to the home page of the blog.

    I am stil logged in as admin, but cannot do anything to deactivate this.

    I have not used the plugin, so I have not done anything with it that could cause this problem.

    I have had the plugin there for some months, so restoring a backup is not an option now.

    Please tell me how to delete it.
    Thanks
    Michael

    get to your plugin root directory-rename the plugin folder...I usually put a 1(one) on the end....then I usually refresh the admin...and delete....then I delete the plugin folder....

    Me again: I hope I have solved it by deleting the directory for the plugin in File manager. Drastic, but hopefully effective.

    Solved:
    the problem did not appear to be your plugin, but this:

    WordPress Firewall has detected and blocked a potential attack

    Apparently uninstalling your plugin upset the WordPress Firewall pluing and it stoped the uninstall, thinking:
    "This may be a "WordPress-Specific SQL Injection Attack."
    Thanks
    The problem is now resolved

    Thanks for your quick answer above, I was doing what you suggested and reporting back as you were typing it and didn't see it till after I had tried it.
    Much appreciated
