Reinstalling Job Manager (5 posts)

    I had JM 0.6.6 up and running fine, decided to take a look at the beta, and then go back down to 0.6.6. The site I'm working on isn't live, so I wasn't worried about losing any data. However, even after deleting the plugin and reinstalling, I can't get it to work. I think the jobs page is somehow broken or deleted. When I click on "edit" under the admin settings->url path, I get the message "You attempted to edit a page that doesn’t exist. Perhaps it was deleted?"

    If I click on the url path link, it shows a blank page. If I go to list-jobs -> view, I get a 404.

    Also, even though I deleted the plugin and had all the options checked to delete things, the app form settings are retained. I think the first time I deleted the plugin, I didn't have all the boxes checked, however.

    I've tried reinstalling 2-3 times, to now avail.

    I know I screwed something up, because JM was working wonderfully, but if there is a way to get back to a "vanilla" install, that'd be great.

    Sorry about that, there was a problem with the uninstall routine that didn't delete the options.

    I've fixed this in 0.7-beta4, which will be available in about 15 minutes. (Please don't install 0.7-beta3, it's broken.)

    As a workaround, you can run the following query on your WordPress database:

    DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name='jobman_options';

    Do I need to go into something like cpanel to modify the database? Or can I copy and past that code into one of the template files?

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    You'll need to go into cPanel, open up phpMyAdmin, go to your wordpress database, click the SQL button, and run that query.
