We’ve had Slim Plus installed and working successfully for years now at http://www.stjoseph-baden.org. Today I got an email from my client stating the plugin had vanished.
When I logged in, the Connections Slim Plus still showed in the plugin directory, but was deactivated. It wouldn’t let me reactivate, so I uninstalled/reinstalled it.
It’s activated, but the menu item won’t show up in the left sidebar menu in the WP dashboard.

I just got them both working – the core plugin needed to be reinstalled too.
Question – did you happen to update the plugin recently? I have an auto-updater running on the site, and though it rarely give me problems, once in a blue moon an auto-update will mess up a feature. I’ve configured it just now so the Connections plugins will always require a manual update, but it would be good to have confirmation that was the likely culprit. My client swears they didn’t delete or deactivate anything. :)

Great to hear your have it working now. I had initially wondered if the issue was that the core Connections plugin was not installed, but when I visited the site, it was. I guess you had already installed Connections again.
The 8.16 version was just released on 3/30 … Connections is updated pretty frequently sometimes as much as 2–3 times a month.
Hope this helps!04/02/2018 at 11:56 am #457449
Hmmm…yeah, that sounds like an auto-update issue. I’ll be updating manually from now on. Thanks for your help and quick responses on this issue!
