  • My blogs have been going array sincee I pluggged it in. I do not suggest anyone, come close to this plugin.

    For the past 3 days have I have been trying to remove the plugins, configarations and I couldnt.

    I have now had to contact my host, to ask for assistance. I have backed up, restores, and rolled forwards and cakwards yet to no avial.

    Do not plug this in, your blogs will go to Timbuck two and beyond. Please sstay away from this plugin. I suggesy paying for a securty plugin, becasue this one as no support what so ever, and as you know, when blogs are down, owners dont sleep.

  • Well, i’m sorry for you, but as for me, this plugin runs smoothly on 4 of my sites.

    Did you change the content directory? If so, you have to also do a search and replace in your database. Here is a reputable search and replace script:

    (Or you could use any other search and replace plugin you’re comfortable with.)

    Follow the instructions.

    You would do a search and replace for “wp-content” to “whatever you renamed that folder”.

    Any plugin of this nature is going to be complex. I am having one issue that seems to be host dependent. I have not nailed it down yet. It works fine on several GoDaddy sites, but there seems to be problem on HostGator and one other more obscure host.

    IMHO No one who puts so much time and expertise into a free WP plugin deserves to be slammed like this. WordPress site admins should know how to back up and re-install their sites – from scratch if necessary. Do not expect miracles from your %5/month web host. Expect disaster – and plan for it.

    Unlikely. If you have been “trying to remove the plugins” [sic] and can’t, then you’re doing it wrong or your WP installation is broken.

    The process of manually removing a plugin is trivial.

    Sorry, nothing to add to the discussion, but i really found this funny! 🙂
