I posted this in a more general forum and in the WP Google Maps plugin forum, but someone suggested I try here as well.
I recently updated to WP 4.4, and all plugins are updated. Around the same time, installed Wordfence plugin. Shortly after this, logged in to make some changes in a few plugins, but I rarely change them so I don’t know if I’ve had the following issues for awhile and they’re just now appearing, or if recent changes sparked them.
First noticed issues in WP Google Maps plugin. Added a location, went in to one of my existing maps, tried to add the new location to that map, and the map disappeared altogether. Another map then made a duplicate of itself. Opening any existing map either makes one disappear and/or makes others duplicate themselves. None of the deleted or duplicated maps show up on my website.
Then noticed in my plugins page on the dashboard that a few plugins had deactivated. I went to reactivate them, and others would deactivate.
Someone on one of the other forums suggested I download WP 4.4, delete my files and manually replace them with the download. This is WAAAAY above my skill level, so instead I tried deactivating all plugins, reinstalling WP 4.4 and reactivating all plugins. At first this seemed to help with the WP Google Maps plugin, but then I went into my Tablepress plugin and the same thing is happening – tables are deleting and duplicating themselves.
I tried deactivating and deleting Wordfence, this solved nothing, so I reinstalled it. I also went in and tried to delete as many plugins as possible (some I knew weren’t being used, but others I’m not positive so am leaving them alone.)
Can WP get a virus? I had WP SpamShield installed but deleted it just in case as it may have also been recently added (I can’t remember for sure.)
I’m pretty much MEGA beginner level – I don’t understand a lot of the terminology, coding, etc. so am clueless what else to try. Any ideas would be very much appreciated!!
