Hi, there I migrated a weblog to another hosting service. I had to migrate wp 2.04 to wp 2.04 because there were issues with 2.1 and plugins and themes.
However, currently I’m dealing with an urgent situation.
The blog on the new site looks fine except that the snap preview plugin (http://ajaydsouza.com/wordpress/plugins/snap-preview-anywhere/)
can’t be turned off!
But there is a deeper problem. When I backed up the database for migration, I forgot to turn off the 20-30 plugins (yes, I know; it’s in every piece of documentation that you need to deactivate these before migrating).
So the first thing I did is deactivate all the plugins, make a copy of the DB and ftp a copy of it to myself. However, I noticed that the old site itself now doesn’t work at all after reactivating the plugins I turned off. So deactivating has proven to be a dangerous activity.
So here’s my question. I know I’m supposed to be at 2.1. And currently I have a functioning 2.04 on the new site (from the db snapshot with the Snap plugin annoyingly turned on even though I have deactivated it and even deleted the plugin itself post migration).
Does anyone have sugggestions?
a)on the 2.04 on the new site, live with the Snap plugin and beg somebody to teach me how to remove the reference from the SQL? (and on this db, upgrade eventually to 2.1)
b)create a new 2.04 site with the db snapshot after I deactivated all the plugins (more time, also potential problems with activating plugins? )
c) concentrate on migrating from the new 2.04 db to 2.1? (and worry about the Snap preview references later).
The crazy thing about Snap preview is that on the old site the site owner DID deactivate Snap preview, but it still was showing up. And then on the new site, I went so far as to delete the specific plugin directory it came from.
So despite the fact that I deactivated the plugin and removed the directory itself, the popup still shows in every single feature.
