Auntypizza - samething is happening to me. I'm using the twenty eleven theme. Getting ready to chuck it.
I first deactivated two plugins, then deleted them.
It was as if I did nothing...they are still there, interfering with the formatting of my page (no spaces between paragraph, the page does the continue thing - without me implementing the "more" feature, - and, what's worse is that the "continuation" is just three little dots without a link - so the page ends mid sentence, mid paragraph.
So, Jeff Farthing - I agree, if you delete something it is deleted. I guess the appropriate way to phrase the statement re: deletion is: aunty pizza and I hit the "delete" button, which is supposed to delete the plugin, but the plugin is still there so it wasn't deleted, but all steps were taken to do so.
Any ideas? Anyone? How does one delete a program that the "delete" button won't delete.
Yes, I'm getting delerious about deleting.
