This has been a recurring need and feel it's good to make it clearer.

To uninstall any unwanted App follow this steps. Details for V12 starts from STEP 7

Go to Studio. You see all Apps,

STEP 2.

The App MUST first be deactivated or disabled before it can be uninstalled as designed.

STEP 7 FOR VERSION 12.X.X

An App must first be deactivated before it can be deleted. Also note that any App that you delete will lose all contents on your website that is dependent on it and cannot be recovered.

As an App is deactivated, it automatically changes appearance to a dull gray color with an "X" icon appearing next to the initial (Star) "Settings" button.

      • It would also be nice to be able to reinstall a module without losing the data. True, you can save your database but how do you merge or recover the old data???

        • That will be something to figure out by the development team.. i believe if the data is backed up before uninstalling, there could be a way to restore it.

          However, if you know a module will still be needed, it's advisable to only disable and not uninstall. You will be able to have your contents showing anytime you reactivate it.
