    I don?t know if this is the right place to put this, so move it if you must. How does Word Press remember plug-in settings? If I have a plugin, Lets say WPRobot and set up a campaign then decide to remove the plugin and delete it. I go into Hostgator and delete the files there. Yet if I reinstall it even months later the settings are still there. How do I get rid of everything that has to do with a plugin so if I reinstall it it?s like I never installed it before? Is it Hostgator, Wordpress, or on my computer?

    Computer for sure... Format c::rolleyes:

    Check the DB, find any options table entries that the plugin may have left behind. You can try http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/clean-options/
