    Dear

    I installed the plugin to do some testing and I came to the conclusion that it is not necessary for my case. I wrote my legal pages that meet my specific need.

    Delete the plugin but I still have fields with the name “WPAutoTerms Legal” in the user role and in other parts of my admin panel. How do I delete this information? Is there a table that was generated in the database?

    Thank you

    Hi Carlos,

    As it’s normal with other WordPress plugins, once the plugin is installed it generates various table rows in “wp_options” table of your site database.

    These will not affect your site in anyway. These will be taken in consideration by WP AutoTerms plugin if you choose to reinstall it. Otherwise, third-party plugins will not be affected by any remaining information to WP AutoTerms in your site database.

    We advise against it, but you could delete any remaining information by going to your site database and deleting any rows related to WP AutoTerms in the “wp_options” table.

    We’ll investigate if these can be safely deleted once the plugin is uninstalled.

    Hello

    Please send me the relation of the created lines, so I enter in the database and delete.

    Thank you

    Here’s a useful list:

    wpautoterms_activated
    wpautoterms_version
    wpautoterms_links
    wpautoterms_update_notice_disable_logged
    wpautoterms_update_notice_duration
    wpautoterms_update_notice_message
    wpautoterms_update_notice_close_message
    wpautoterms_update_notice_bg_color
    wpautoterms_update_notice_font
    wpautoterms_update_notice_font_size
    wpautoterms_update_notice_text_color
    wpautoterms_update_notice_links_color
    wpautoterms_cookies_noticewpautoterms_cookies_notice_bar_position

    You can also run this kind of query on your wp_options table to search for all references to WP AutoTerms:

    SELECT * FROM 'wp_options' WHERE 'option_name' LIKE '%wpautoterms%'

    @wpautoterms I would hope that in the future release there will be an option to delete all data after uninstalling.

    Hello

    I deleted all the lines that you sent me and I still had others, I used a plugin to perform the task, but the problem still continues see the image in the link:

    Does it have a line that has a different name?

    You could try the following to delete the user role created by our plugin:

    1. Try to install a “User Role Editor” plugin and delete the user role altogether. Certain plugins may support this functionality.

    2. Update your functions.php file to delete the user role. You can remove the lines from functions.php after you’ve confirmed that the role has been deleted.

    function wps_remove_role() {
               remove_role( 'manage_wpautoterms_pages' );
               remove_role( 'manage_wpautoterms_pages_editor' );
           }
           add_action( 'init', 'wps_remove_role' );

    manage_wpautoterms_pages and manage_wpautoterms_pages_editor are the two user roles we’re using.

    Hello

    I have a plugin that I created where I have some custom functions that I use on the site. I pasted the suggested code into the plugin and the user role tab disappeared. Then I deleted the plugin code and cleared the cache and did not return to the tab. Looks like everything’s okay now!

    Thank you
