After updating the Fast Secure Contact Form plugin my forms disappeared from all pages where they should appear, leaving only the short code, such as: [si-contact-form form='3']
Further investigation revealed that Fast Secure Contact Form no longer appears in the list of plugins. Initially I got the following message on the Plugins page:
"The plugin si-contact-form/si-contact-form.php has been deactivated due to an error: The plugin does not have a valid header."
However that message no longer appears.
A check of the site with FTP shows that the plugin's folder and contents still exist at /wp-content/plugins/inline-upload.
Further, an inspection of the database shows related entries in the wp_options table. Entries in the option_name field such as:
and so on.
What should I do now? I REALLY don't want to risk losing all the settings I had established previously. I had quite a few forms set up, some allowing files upload, fairly long list of e-mail addresses, and so on.
