Support » Plugin: WordPress Download Manager » Update unticked all categories & lost icons

  • Hi

    I updated the plugin today & it unticked the categories on all my 200 downloads! Now none of them appear in the category pages. Also all icons are unticked so missing images showing up.

    Please let me know how I can fix this asap! I want to avoid having to retick all categories obviously

    PS already did the Migrate also.

    sorry, need to reassign categories, as v2.7 using custom post type and taxonomy, the ids and slug changes after data migration and sometimes category links are lost for that reason. Icons also need to reassign. Sorry for the extra works, but we recoded wpdm totally in v2.7 for more stability.

    Ok thanks. Its a pity you didnt take this in to consideration though. We have a lot of downloads and now I have to tell my client he needs to manually update them all!

    Actually we don’t no other way to keep those link, but you still can get back to previous version from here

    Yes thank you SO much for this “update”. Not only the icons are gone but whatever ghastly css you’ve replaced the previous with has also mucked up the page design. Thank you once again. Hours of work now to try and do something about it. Great.
    Have I thanked you enough?
    Maybe not.
    Thanks a million.

    I’ve reverted. I can’t believe you can just throw people’s hard work away by putting out an update like that. It’s a case of the cure being worse than the disease.

    I reverted too – this update basically wiped all my downloads from wordpress. Perhaps needs releasing as a major update (3) – with migration instructions …?

    Do you mean uploads? They will still be there in wp-content/uploads/download-manager-files. They won’t be lost.
    Migration is easy. That’s not the problem.

    Finally noticed the migration option … thanks!

    Careful – full of bugs in the migration as well
    Lost everything – shortcodes all changed, links and categories
