I am actually running Cherry Plugin Version 188.8.131.52 and Cherry Parallax Plugin Version 1.0.0 which came with a template. I need to update to the latest WordPress. As “good practice”, I deactivate all plugins before the update (and backup). I can deactivate Cherry Parallax and all other plugins. However, when I try to deactivate the Cherry Plugin, the screen flashes, it does not deactivate and I don’t get any error messages. I was given the advice “just go ahead and to do the upgrade anyway”. For me, since this is a live site, that’s like flipping a coin (I’ve been on the bum side of failed updates, not pretty!).
I also thought about manually backing up the Cherry Plugin directory and desintalling, then reinstalling. However, I’m afraid I don’t know enough about your plugin to know if I would hose myself that way as well…..
Any advice would be GREATLY GREATLY appreciated! I thank you in advance!!!!
Hello, Chris S
wp-content/themes/your-theme/includes/register-plugins.php file a params
force_deactivation set are
false – like this https://github.com/CherryFramework/CherryFramework/blob/master/includes/register-plugins.php#L50-L51
After this, you can deactivate Cherry Plugin successfully.
Update : Did the fix provided by Dmitry, worked like a charm! In my case, force_activation was set to true while force_deactivation was set to false. Set both to false. One word of advice: After setting both params to false, exit WordPress and get back in before trying to deactivate. Then you should be golden! Thank you Dmitry for your assistance. You were spot-on.
