[resolved] [closed] Cannot delete plugin??? (3 posts)

    Okay, I have had it with this plugin! I've implemented my own custom plugin for access management, and when I try to delete the plugin it fails, and reports:

    Plugin could not be deleted due to an error: Could not fully remove the plugin(s) advanced-access-manager/aam.php

    I would like to be able to uninstall it, and have it remove all database setting as well. If this is impossible to do through the admin area, is there any instruction on how to do it manually. Disabling the plugin does not get rid of permission settings, and I will need to have all permissions set by AAM removed from the database.

    Hi cjanteater,
    AAM does not trigger this message. It must be done by WordPress Core. Other than that, if you created your own access management plugin I'm sure you are very familiar how WordPress Core handles the access to Admin Area through Capabilities.
    At the same time you are perfectly familiar what to do with wp_user_roles option in wp_options database table.

    All settings related to AAM have prefix aam_.

    I wish you the best in your future development and a lot of patience. In matter of fact this is the most important skill.

    Well, I've successfully removed several other plugins, and AAM is the only one to produce this message. So by deduction, it is relevant to AAM, and it stopping the core form successfully deleting the files and uninstalling the corresponding database structure.

    Okay, I will have to perform the manual delete. Thank you for your very time consuming and vert buggy plugin. I'll be sure to recommend it to those who need a partially working user management system.

    P.S. I know enough to manage my own simpler implementation, and have had more than enough patience with your plugin (being that I've been making it work correctly since I first installed it over a year ago) YES THAT IS ONE YEAR OF MYSELF SUPPORTING YOUR PLUGIN!

    I am going to make a recommendation to WordPress to have this plugin flagged as not stable with the most current version of WordPress. You should not offer this plugin for free with known problems within it. It should be fully tested. I hope you don't offer this same level of quality to those who opt to pay for it. And the WordPress team should take more responsibility in informing users that there is a paid version as well, and should flag the free version as not a fully stable version. It would save us all a lot of time and trouble.
