Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security » Database tables

  • After uninstalling Wordfence few months ago, the plugin left Database Tables in mySql!
    This is unforgivable.

  • So, you forgot to check the option on the options page that states “Delete Wordfence tables and data on deactivation”? Yeah, that is unforgivable. You should have. 🙂

    Can’t speak for Wordfence folks, but I would say that option is not set by default, because sometimes or most times a person actually WANT to be able to remove and reinstall a plugin, without losing all the existing configurations and history. So, tables are left behind for the reinstall or reactivation. Unless you ask the plugin to clean up after itself by setting that magic option. 🙂

    Hi Caleb, thank you for answer. I see your point.
    However, correct logic goes like this: if person wants to remove the plugin, it is obvious that he is not interesting in plugin as such. So the checkbox should be removed completely, and the action does a person wants database saved should be controlled with Pop-Up window yes/no answer. 😉
    They do know javaSrcipt, do they.
    Anyway, I am willing to gladly change my review/stars, when WF fix the problem.

    So you saddle a plugin with a one-star rating for it’s overall functionality, because YOU forgot to read the options and documentation? Wow. 🙂

    Yes that is correct. User experience and User interface are pretty important stuff nowadays.

    Hmm.. Maybe you should stop running your stuff off free software and free plugins then?

    You know, actually pay for the service levels and “protections against your own (in)actions” that you seem to expect someone to provide for free?

    Heck, just a wild thought. 🙂

    Simple pop-up window, or nice inline red javascript element would be enough upon uninstall.
    thank you 🙂
