Sorry for inconvenience! Please read full post.
iPaper was my first Wordpress plugin and I didn’t think about upgrade, but now it’s time to have a new version and problems appear.
There is nothing I can do except this post to explain you. I had a good intention of cleaning iPaper data when deactivate the plugin, but in fact it’s not a good idea, not at all. In Wordpress, when you upgrade a plugin, the plugin is deactivated, upgraded and activated. That’s the problem… during upgrade you will lose your settings.
Moreover, I have not implemented mechanism to alert you in plugin list about new version as some plugins do. Then, if you don’t see this post, you will have a bad surprise after upgrade to next version. The good news, you just have to set logins options back, synchronize and everything will work fine, then if you read this, make a copy of login, password, api key and api secret to restore it quickly.
There is a solution to avoid this, but you have to remove yourself one line of code in iPaper, here is the solution : Before upgrading plugin, open file ipaper.php and just remove line 649
Of course this problem won’t happen anymore, and I implement mechanism to display upgrade message in plugins list, just in case of
Again, I’m very sorry for inconvenience!
New version should come within few days with new and asked features.
