Support » Plugin: Simple Custom Post Order » Plugin deleted all Categories, causing all Posts to Trash on uninstall

  • Hi,

    Just tested then deleted Simple Custom Post Order and it deleted all my Categories — all core and custom taxonomies.

    All Posts were intact but tossed in the trash stripped of taxonomy (probably still had the data in the base but with no taxonomy to link to, not even Uncat, they all got trashed). Obviously all loops on site went dead.

    The plugin had been set to sort only Posts, but all post types were affected (overall data structure change am guessing).

    I reinstalled, which repopulated all the Categories. I unchecked “Posts” in the plugin settings and again deactivated and deleted – same problem!

    I am on self hosted WordPress 5.1.

    What is possibly causing this issue? I would like to cleanly remove this.

    Thanks so much,

    Hello @wyrostok,

    Thank you for letting us know about this!
    I have checked this on my end and it does not happen which means it might be an incompatibility with a plugin or the theme.
    Could you please let me know what plugins are you using and what theme?
    Would you be willing to turn them off for a couple of minutes except Simple Custom Post Order and see if it works afterwards?

    All the best,

    Hi @mplusb and thank you,

    There are a lot of plugins in the system since it’s under development at the moment.

    I would be happy to test that out but my immediate issue since my client doesn’t need the plugin tool is to remove it, rather than get it working. But if getting it working properly will help remove it properly, I am happy to try getting it working first.

    Theme is Avada 5.8.2

    Below is a plugin list. The only one I think is involved in handling taxonomy management is this, which handles taxonomy order:

    I will try the experiment you mention when I can access the system later today.

    Thank you!
