Simple Pages conflict?

Using Reclaim Hosting. Everything is working (and appears to be doing so beautifully) with one exception. I cannot activate the Simple Pages plug-in.

Thoughts?

No conflict. My best guess is that the plugin’s folder name is wrong (e.g. /plugins/SimplePages-master) and/or is incorrectly nested (e.g. /plugins/SimplePagesPlugin/SimplePages). Are you seeing an error?

There is a simple pages within the curatescape theme directory as well.

The /simple-pages directory in the theme is just a theme template that tweaks the container HTML to fit the theme’s layout. It wouldn’t prevent you from activating the plugin.

Sounds like this issue on the Omeka forum:

good catch. where might I find the table? in the database? any ideas?

In the database. You’ll need to log in to your Reclaim account, go to CPanel and find PHPMyAdmin in order to alter database tables. If you’re not sure what to do when you get there, submit a support ticket to Reclaim. They should be able to help.

And, you win the award for incisive advice. I did a quick search and found it in PHPMyAdmin.

Somehow the install created an “about” page that prevented the simple pages from working.

Good call. thank you.

I deleted only the offending “about” page, not the entire table… and that worked. I did not need to delete the table itself.
