Important Announcement – Reactivate Inbound Pro after Next Update

Attention Inbound Now Customer,

In the next release of Inbound Pro you will have to re-activate the Inbound Pro plugin after it completes updating. The reason you will have to do this is because we are changing our plugin folder name from ‘/wp-content/plugins/_inbound-now’ to ‘/wp-content/plugins/inbound-pro/’.

When we change the base name of a plugin WordPress will automatically deactivates the plugin because it’s on-record location is not available anymore. This requires us to re-activate the plugin now that it exists at a new location.

Why make the name change?

During the course of 2016 a lot of effort went into clarifying that Inbound Pro stood for our all in one WordPress plugin. When we created the Inbound Pro all in one plugin we created it under the plugin directory name ‘_inbound-now’ because it was not yet determined we would call our all in one plugin and the underscore told WordPress to load it first before any other plugins. At the time we needed this to happen.

Even though it will cause some a minor inconvenience, I still want to change the folder name from ‘/wp-content/plugins/_inbound-now/’ to  ‘/wp-content/plugins/inbound-pro/’ and be done with it forever.

I am still a few weeks out from pushing the new updates.

Thanks for paying attention!
