Support » Plugin: Subscribe2 » I can't uninstall Subscribe2 and I think it's causing errors.

  • Resolved Dale88


    Hi! I’m using Subscribe2 v 8.8. I was trying it out and decided it’s not for me. I deactivated it and tried to delete it, but it gives me an error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function s2_uninstall() in /home/content/41/10100641/html/wp-content/plugins/subscribe2/uninstall.php on line 23

    I tried reinstalling the plugin and it didn’t work. Also, I just noticed that SexyBookmarks is acting funny and the only thing I did since the last time I know it was working was install and play around with Subscribe2.

    My site is here:

  • @dale88,

    If you are using WordPress as a single site installation (i.e. not Multisite) try using the uninstall.php file from version 8.7, available here:


    Update: I’ve done some testing and identified the issue. A fix has been committed to the development code so you can use that uninstaller.

    Thanks a bunch, worked like a charm!

    BTW, looks like a great plugin – I just decided not to try to deal with managing an email list at this point. I’m just using feedburner.

    One suggestion: if the appearance of widget could be easily manipulated, or even if there could be a spot to put in CSS for the widget, that would be really nice! I know some CSS, but not savy enough to figure out how I can apply items in the main style sheet to the widget.

    Anyway, thanks again!


    The Widget allows you to define a class, in your main theme CSS file you would use a class selector to define your css, so if you class was called s2widget you would create some CSS something like this:

    .s2widget {


    I want to uninstall it but i am getting same error. Please tell me how to use uninstall.php. When i deactivate this plugin my whole site becomes messed up.

    i have made an uninstall.php file and tried using both of the codes seperately. I put the file in plugins file. WHen i try to delete it, i get the same error.

    Now when i am trying to active this plugin i am getting this error,

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
    Warning: require_once(/home/flightra/public_html/wp-content/plugins/follow/classes/class-s2-core.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/flightra/public_html/wp-content/plugins/subscribe2/subscribe2.php

    i have checked and the suscribe2 file does exist


    In the wp-content/plugins/subscribe2/ folder on your server there is already a file called uninstall.php but there were errors in it. Copy over this file with the one linked above and then delete the plugin from the WordPress menus and it should uninstall.

    tried this but all my website is lost now, cant believe if one site can destroy whole of the site


    Did you change other stuff as well? Can you access the admin area at all? If not erase the entire Subscribe2 plugin folder using FTP software.
