Hi,

Does anyone know how to remove a sub field from a compound field? I
removed the field from metafields.xml and metafields.pl. I also
removed any reference to it from other files in the archive cfg
folder, followed by a restart. This doesn't make the field disappear
however.

I tried epadmin remove_field on the subfield. This does delete the DB
table, but the sub field is still in the UI. If I run epadmin update
afterward, it just adds the table back.

Somehow somewhere it still remembers the sub field.

How can I completely remove the sub field?

Thanks!
