    Hi Ian!

    We had championships already underway then updated to the latest version of the plugin.

    Now the current championships do not work due to the extra columns in the database mismatching. Gives DB errors.

    Please help! :(

    Deactivate a reactivate the plugin and it will sort out your problem.

    Thanks for the quick response Ian - Will deactivating the plugin cause any possible loss of information on the current championships or will it just pick the database back up again?

    Thanks
    Ste

    It won't cause any problems.

    See http://wordpress.org/support/topic/missing-columnstables?replies=3

    By reactivating it detects the database schema is old, and adds some new columns for the new features (Rain, Safety Car etc).

    WordPress used to automatically deactivate/reactivate on an upgrade, but they changed the behaviour.

    Next version will handle upgrades better.
