Uninstalling a Plugin

If you don't need a plugin, you should uninstall it. It is a good practice to keep your system as clean as possible to avoid unnecessary slowness. To uninstall a plugin you need to go to the Plugin Manager interface and do the following:

1. Locate the plugin from the Installed plugins section.

2. Select the Uninstall button.

3. The next page that appears is the uninstall interface. Here you will have two options:

Delete plugin tables: This will remove the plugin tables from 

Delete plugin files: This will remove the plugin from the server.

Generally, you can keep the default settings and then select Confirm uninstall.

5. Return to the administrative interface.

6. Select Database

7. Select Optimize SQL database.

Introduction to Plugins on 28 Apr 2020

Introduction to Plugins

There are two types of plugins that are available for use with e107. There are core plugins and non-core plugins. The biggest difference between the two types is that core plugins are created by members of the development team and as such are packaged with e107. Non-core plugins are created by other developers who
found a need, developed the plugin, and then uploaded it for others to use. This is one of the greatest assets of open-source software.

The site for all e107 plugins is at https://www.e107.org. This is the official repository; however, I would caution you to go to the developer's website before downloading and installing non-core plugins, as often developers are not quick to post updates to the https://www.e107.org site.

With GitHub and version 2 there are some core plugins (available with the developer GitHub version) that are not packed with the official release.  For example Alternative Authentication, FAQs and maybe others.

Core Plugin Installation

This is the easiest type of plugin to install because it is a part of the e107 core package and it is contained within your e107 installation. To install a core plugin you perform the following procedures:
1. Log in as administrator.
2. From the administrator interface select Plugin Manager at the bottom of the screen.
3. A page will be displayed; select the plugin that you wish to install by clicking on the Install button to the right of each listing. (See the screenshot on the next page.)
4. When you have selected, the plugin will move to the top of the screen in the Installed section with a small green box to the left of the plugin name.
5. That completes a core plugin installation.
