Just updated to the new version and completed the database update. It has renumbered all messages starting at 1. Unfortunately I have about 20,000 messages which are all based on recorded order numbers so if they are renumbered it presents some huge problems for me. Is it possible to avoid this renumbering of messages after the database update?
You should save order number in message meta, that way is recommended.
If you want message id same as previous message id, you can update using https://github.com/shamim2883/front-end-pm version. Uninstall current version and download and install github version.
remember if your database copy is already updated you cannot use that database copy. Use database copy before update.
After update finish uninstall github version and install your latest PRO version of the plugin.
Please follow step by step
1. Use your database backup copy which you made before this plugin update. Messages once updated cannot be updated again. So make sure you are using backup copy of your database which backup you made before this plugin update to 10.1.1.
I just restored the original database before I last updated. I updated Front End PM Pro to version 10.1.1. However, it seems that the 2 x changes that you mention above are already incorporated. Have you since made these changes to this version or do I need to do something else?
