I just upgraded to 10.1.1 and I now have an empty PM box. I didn’t check it just before the upgrade, but I haven’t deleted messages in there so unless there’s some sort of automatic purging, I suspect the upgrade (new storage format?) meant I lost my messages.
Is this correct? Just wondering because there’s no mention of it in the changelog.
Please see in admin notice there is “Front End PM PRO needs to database update.” click “Proceed”. This will update all messages.
After update you can delete your legacy messages (you will see delete link in admin notice once finished updating).
It should show both in front-end and back-end.
In Front End PM PRO > All Messages does your name shows in Sender or Recipients list?
Do you use any custom template for this plugin?
Please clear any cache if you have.
With more extensive testing i found a issue which is too rare. If a request is made during update between user meta delete and message update (time is less than 1 second depending on your messages size) then this issue occur. I believe which is case for you.
You can add delete_metadata( 'user', 0, '_fep_user_message_count', '', true ); in your theme’s (child theme’s if any) functions.php, then refresh your admin area couple of times and remove this code. This will solve your issue.
