Is it normal for an update to dump all the code inside the plugin folder (wp-content\plugins\piklist\add-ons)?
All my code is now gone. This is really bad, or am I missing something?
There was no warning or “backup plugin folder prior to install” prompt during auto-update.
Is there I copy of the prior version somewhere?

@courtens– you should never make changes or additions to any plugins. When you update them your code will be deleted.
The only way to restore it is from a backup. Check with your host to see if they have backups.

Thank you @Steve. I did find a backup of the code. I got it back in place and working again.
But now I am worried that I have the code in a wrong place. (I only use it inside the administration section of WP – would I still need to move it to another folder?)
For right now the code is inside a folder named “blogs” in wp-content\plugins\piklist\add-ons (sitting right next to “piklist-demos”)
/* Plugin Name: Blogs Text Domain: blogs Description: Used to control Taxonomies for Blogs. Text Domain: blogs Domain Path: /blogs */
To me Step 1 in Register your plugin with Piklist is not clearly specifying where to create the folder.
Thanks again for helping!

You need to create your own plugin:
1) Create this folder:
blogs.phpto this folder
3) Include the file header code listed here in
4) Move any other code from
blogsover to this folder.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
