Hi,

Thanks for contacting us here about this extension.
What is the best way to remove DropEditor and its components? Will uninstalling the DropEditor component also remove everything else?

You should uninstall as normal and it will also remove all the DropEditor data.
And you can see how to uninstall here: https://docs.joomla.org/Uninstalling_an_extension

Hope it helps!
Cheers,

Thanks for that completely unhelpful response. What I wanted was specific help about your extension but obviously that’s too hard.

I searched for “Drop”, then uninstalled the DropEditor component — this only removed one item.
Then I selected all the JoomUnited Drop* items and got warning messages about (non-existent) content being affected multiple times before I could uninstall all the components.
Then I searched for JoomUnited and found that the Updater was still there.

This is the kind of nonsense I was hoping to avoid. You should provide a clean uninstall as well as an install procedure. It’s just irresponsible to potentially leave random outdated code sitting on someone’s site and it doesn’t leave a very good impression.

Also the tendency to create component-specific data/data locations as a kind of product lock-in (and the warnings on uninstall) is totally repellent. It’s great to think out-of-the-box but not when it puts your customer inside another one.

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me with more information.
I'm sorry, we do not have that feature currently. We will note your ideas for a future release.

Thanks a lot!
Cheers,
