How works phpBB extension and delete data

Post by PB190 » Fri Jun 08, 2018 7:24 pm

Hello, i want ask how works phpBB exensions.

If i install any extension, and after i deactive him and delete data.
Does this deleted extension leave any records in the database?
Or, after deleting the data, are all extension records deleted ?

What does the feature do - delete data at extension?


Thanks :idea:

Deleting data for an extension leaves everything in the same state as it was before the extension was installed

Not all the extensions revert data changed, but it should.

All validated ones do - with perhaps any that add BBCode

seriously? it sounds good,

but how are you sure that all data is deleted, maybe some extension is written wrong and does not delete the all data. :mrgreen:

The whole point of validation is to make sure the submissions are good enough to pass. What’s bothering you?

Thank you no problem.
I just have a bad experience with wordpress plugins. :-) Which even after uninstallation leave a trace in the database.

Maybe it's already on wordpress now, but I do not know.
I just wanted to inform if phpbb works the same way.
