• I installed this plugin to try it out. And then decided to remove it again as it didn’t offer the features I needed.

    However, it has left all kinds of garbage behind. User types still exist and there are references throughout my database.

    This is the worst kind of plugin coding. When a user wants to remove a plugin they expect it to clean up after itself.

    Can’t recommend.

    Hello @asha23,

    It’s not about only Dokan plugin, most of the plugin save their table in the database because if you re-install the plugin later that time you will get your data back. Even WooCommerce does this as same. Please install WooCommerce and then delete it, you will find that order table and all other WooCommerce related tables will be available in your database. So, I think you did not get the correct point.

    If we delete all the data from database after deactivating or deleting the plugin then you would not get any data when you will re-install the plugin. Someone may want to re-install the plugin so, we have to think logically for everyone.


    So give the option when people uninstall (Keep data or not) – Too many WP plugins litter the database. The good ones clean up after themselves nicely.

    Leaving user types behind is messy.
