Event Calendar
[resolved] Can't clean up after this plug-in (2 posts)

    Couldn't make it work (PHP issue with host)so I uninstalled. Somewhere in the notes I saw some pious stuff about the database being mine, so it was left in place. It has now poisoned my site; I'm not sure what to delete and the ones in wp-content that do seem to relate can't be deleted by any means available to me. A different Event list plug-in is picking up your event and category slugs because it uses the same shortcodes.

    Sick to my stomach; have to roll back to a backup that's two busy days old. Uninstall means uninstall. If there was something I wanted to keep I'd have found a way to save it.

    Jim -

    Unfortunately, I can't provide any insight to the described scenario because:
    - AEC tables (aec_event and aec_event_category) are indeed deleted upon plugin removal (without option to save)
    - AEC does not employ category slugs (all event/category ids are unique to these tables and does not pollute the common WordPress tables)
    - AEC employs [calendar] and [eventlist] shortcodes, which are removed upon deletion

    It would seem a different event plugin was the cause of your described issues. However, if you still believe this plugin was responsible, I would be interested in reviewing any saved error logs, or console screen shots submitted to the plugin issue tracker.
