    If it’s the plugin (and it sounds like it is) try these steps:

    1. Using FTP or whatever filemanagement tools your host has provided you with navigate to the wp-content/plugins directory. File management like that is done without using your WordPress dashboard.
    2. Once there locate and delete the connections directory. Just that one directory and nothing else.
    3. Try and re-login to your WordPress dashboard.

    See if that lets you into your installation.

    And me. Had to edit my wp_option data for active_plugins to get the site back but leaving the Connections plugin disabled.

    I’m glad you got yours working. Those directions I posted above will accomplish the same thing without having to modify any mysql tables. 😉

    @everyone

    Please just delete Connections and reinstall. It is safe to do and you will not lose anything.

    @shazahm1, I applied the fix recommended by tassos. It worked. However, I noticed you pulled the latest update and reverted to .x.x.x.4. I guess you realized this IS an issue.

    Yes, I pulled the update because that was quickest solution to ensure no one else is affected.

    The root issue was a merge conflict which inserted the marker text that needs to be deleted. Unfortunately, when this merge conflict occurred I didn’t get an error message that I should have received. So this went undetected.

    Before re-releasing the update, I just want to double-check the code to make sure all the expected changes are in place and there are no other merge conflict markers hidden elsewhere in the code.

    @Shazahm, no worries. I appreciate your willingness to fix the problem right away:-)

    Thats better than many other big name developers I can think of.
