Should it not revert back to the default line?

When rvm_css was released, this wasn’t possible. You can remove it manually. It’s the only preference that is added by the plugin.

Re: rvm_css (v1.0)

You would need to go into your database and check through the txp_prefs table. It can be removed from there but make sure you have a database backup first. If you aren’t happy working with your database I would just leave it. It’s not causing any harm.

Try smd_prefalizer to take a peek through the prefs. Note that rvm_css_dir is a ‘protected’ pref setting due to the way it is inserted into the advanced pane so you will have to manually override smd_prefalizer’s security mode in order to delete it. Check the plugin help for info.

Re: rvm_css (v1.0)

Could hide it with the plugin methinks.

Re: rvm_css (v1.0)

Can’t hide the preference, because it’s something the user has to be able to change.
Apart from 1 comment, it doesn’t seem to bother anyone.

Re: rvm_css (v1.0)

No Ruud, I meant with Stef’s plugin, if your plugin has been removed, you could hide the preference but as you say, it’s really not hurting anything to be there. Seems a bit of a waste of Stef’s plugin just to hide it.

OT: When plugins are removed they can (more easily as of 4.2.0) clear up after themselves if the author wishes. But it’s not mandatory and is sometimes a good thing to leave prefs behind. Some people just prefer to keep a tidy house, so if a plugin doesn’t delete its own prefs, smd_prefalizer can help you seek and destroy any left luggage. No hiding, just good old-fashioned, unrecoverable deletion. Once you’re done zapping prefs you can even delete smd_prefalizer if you wish. I could probably do with making the docs a bit clearer actually. Next rev, promise!

And now we return to our regular rvm_css broadcast…

Re: rvm_css (v1.0)

Just realized I didn’t have this plugin working because I hadn’t created the css directory. Now that I have my css files are coming out wacky. What did I do wrong?

Re: rvm_css (v1.0)

I see a few extra line endings (no problem, really), but I suppose that’s how it’s stored in the database as well, since rvm_css doesn’t edit the contents of the style sheet; it just stores it as-is in a static file.
