Will this work with other themes in the future?

Answer: The current release is solely for the Vantage and ClassiPress themes. However, we’ll also consider adding compatibility for other themes in the future.

Why doesn’t my Vantage site have the ‘Delete Listing’ button to begin with?

Answer: The ‘Delete Listing’ button was added in the version 1.4 release of the Vantage theme, earlier versions did not have this feature.

    I like this plugin. Can you make a plugin so Vantage users can pause their listing? I’d feel bad not letting them pause their listing if there was no way to delete it.

      Hi Jason,

      Thanks for the positive feedback.

      At the moment our focus is on supporting and updating our existing plugins, but it’s a good idea and we’ll consider it for a future plugin.

    Thanks for your interest in our plugin.

    The Switch Off Delete plugin should work with any child theme for ClassiPress.

    If you have any issues using it with the Jibo child theme, please let me know and I’ll make sure an update is released.

    Yo what happen? why is this plugin no longer available to buy??

  • author


    With other demands on my time, I don’t have capacity any more to offer support for my plugins.

    I don’t think it’s fair to sell plugins without providing support for any user issues that may arise, so my plugins are no longer available for purchase.

    There had been very few user issues for my plugins, and in most cases issues that came up were related to child themes or other plugins. Some quite time consuming and frankly unreasonable support requests recently prompted me to take the plugins off the marketplace.

    Sorry the plugin is no longer available, I hope you understand.
