Support » Plugin: Business Directory Plugin » [Plugin: Business Directory Plugin] Deleting Listing field information

  • Resolved foglight



    I tried to post to the support forums, but something isn’t working there. I did get a post in yesterday, but it looks like the site has been upgraded and my post may have been lost.

    If you take a look at:

    You’ll see that we’re running 2.0.5 and the latest version of WordPress. I was trying to delete the contents of the Website field in this directory entry. However, when I click Update, it doesn’t remove the contents. The contents still remain as it was previous to the deletion.

    However, when I do an update to the field, it works fine. It’s just on the deletion that it doesn’t work.

    The same issue exists with the other fields (email, phone number, address).

    Is there something I’m doing wrong? If not, what needs to be done so I can delete the field and it not to show up in the listing?

    Hi foglight,

    Yes, you caught me on an emergency web host provider change–my old one was just too much of a dog to run the new forum I added and I was forced to change after the conversion. Sorry for the hassles. Still working out issues right now.

    So, to confirm–the problem is that you can’t delete a field, not just the content of the field, right?

    Some fields (Title, Category) can’t be deleted ever (they’re required) but that doesn’t seem to be the issue here.

    Testing on my local site shows that I can indeed delete a field that I’ve added, as well as one that previously existed during install (phone number). So it looks like I need more info.

    Can you walk me through the steps you performed to do this operation above?


    Let me see if I can explain it better. If you look at the listing here:

    You’ll see that the website is http://test. I want to delete it so the website field doesn’t show.

    When I go to the listing in the Dashboard and delete the contents of the field, it isn’t removed. Instead, the contents are exactly as the same as before.

    I am able to change the contents of the field, but can’t delete them.

    What can I do to fix this problem? I have lots of listings already there, so I can’t start from scratch. What can I do?

    Ah, sorry…I misunderstood. Deleting the CONTENT of the field fails.

    Yes, I see that bug now. It was supposed to be fixed that last update. My apologies. We’ll get on it. Don’t panic, it will be fixed shortly.
