Deactivation erase forms?

  1. Jeff

    I need to test a problem I am having with cache in a Semiologic Pro site. I need to deactivate all non-Semiologic plugins. I have Gravity Forms and the Mailchimp add on running. If I deactivate these to for testing, once reactivation, will the forms still be there?

    I see there is no way to back up then restore a form, which would let me move forward with knowing I could restore if something went wrong.

    I searched for this question extensively, hope I did not miss the question and answer somewhere.

  2. Deactivation does not delete the plugin data. You can deactivate the plugin without a problem. You could even delete the plugin files.

    The only way to delete the Gravity Forms data is to go to the Forms > Settings page and use the uninstall option that is on that page. Or manually delete the data in your database.

    So you can deactivate it without a problem.
