classified plugin - I broke it! Help!


We are currently running a buddypress website - utilizing the classifieds plugin.

You can view website at:

we had the classified plugin installed and it was working, but I was tweaking the settings because I wanted different input fields for different categories.

For example: we wouldn't need a salary input box if we are putting up a tool for sale.

So question is: is that possible?

and second part is - I need help fixing the damage I have done...

Great plugin by the way

    Greetings jparr :slight_smile:

    can you please give details of what is not happening - the site does come up :slight_smile:

    If tweaking the settings for the classified plugin is what messed things up, to get control again I would suggest FTPing into the site and deleting the plugin completely.

    In which you should be able to gain control again :slight_smile:

    Then re- install it and hopefully it fixs the databases back up.

    If not, it may be necessary to delete the database table for the classified plugin only :slight_smile:

    Please let me know how it works out or if you need further assistance :slight_smile:

    Hello Aecnu,

    Thank you for the fast response!

    I tried deleting the folder for classifieds inside of the plugin folder, but it still pulled the old data that was in the database before.

    I would like to delete the tables for classifieds plugin. Do you know which ones they are?

    there are entries for the classified within the following tables:

    Post Meta

    they are designated with the title classified and it appears that the classifieds are treated as regular posts.

    Please let me know if you need further assistance :slight_smile:
