[resolved] How do I edit scheduler.inc without making it inactive? (2 posts)

    I edited ...scheduler.inc with the plugin non activated. I think my syntax is correct. Anyway, when I store changes on file, it becomes inactive!. The plugin is working as before the changes. Then I remove the entire plugin and reinstall it again. I am surprise because some parameters after the reinstall are as I previously set up and the scheduler keeps inactive as well! Supposedly , it should delete all plugin data and tables in order to allow the reinstall process to start from scratch. But that does not happen.

    How can I edit scheduler.inc (form language) without crashing the file (correct syntax supposed)?
    How can I re-activate the file after reinstall?
    How should I do when WP inactivate a APC file?
    Do I need a WP cache refresher for immediate changes?

    Recommendation for the free version:

    Avoid taking default user parameters for forms

    <input type="text" name="email" value="<?php if (isset($current_user->user_email)) echo $current_user->user_email; ?>">

    Keep them clear as

    <input type="text" name="phone" value="">

    An alternative is to edit the file from an external editor, for example by the file editor provided on your hosting control panel if any or into a local test editor and when ready uploading it via FTP. Keep a backup copy of the original file so it can be overwritten if needed.

    To reinstall it delete the files and install the plugin again or just overwrite the files. The database tables are kept to automatically load the previous configuration without having to edit everything again.

    If you are using a WP Cache plugin you may have to clear the cache to get the modifications applied in the plugin website.

    The code for automatically taking the email of the logged it user (only if there is a WP user already logged in) has been requested previously by many users but we are working in making that a configurable setting for the next update.

    Thank you for your feedback.
