Support » Plugin: Link Library » Re-Import Links deletes all new style links

  • Resolved zapgadget



    I was having problems getting the User Submission form to do what I wanted so I tried Re-Importing Links as many of my links have been there for ages. Unfortunately I had spent a good chunk of today adding new links, and all of these have vanished. My backup scripts run overnight so everything is gone.

    Can we please have a warning on this button if it’s going to delete all newly entered (since 6.0) links? I thought it would just re-import my older links.

    Yep, checking through phpmyadmin, it’s only the old links from wp_links that are now in wp_posts 🙁

    Sorry to hear about that. Indeed, I should have put a warning on that button to explain what it’s going to do. I just added one now, but I know it’s too late for you. I originally intended this button only to stay for a little bit as users migrated from 5.9 to 6.0, but we are not at 6.3 and 25% of users are still using version 5.9, so I left it in there.

    Thanks for the feedback and please consider donating to support this plugin’s development.
