I have a strange problem, Below are the steps I followed to create and delete a content type.

  1. I have created a content type on site A.\
  2. Deleted content type on Site A by navigating to structure->content types.
  3. cleared cache.
  4. Refreshed the content types page. What I saw was content type still existed.
  5. deleted content type from 'node' and 'node_type' table in DB.
  6. cleared the cache.
  7. Refreshed the page. Still I see content type exist.
  8. I checked the DB again, what I see is that node type re appears in DB.

Is there any other place where the node is getting populated from and making it to reappear?

Any suggestions/help greatly appreciated.

  • Yes I use features module. – Shilpa Nov 29 '12 at 14:38
  • Features look for missed features and re create it, so disable related features. – Mohammad Ali Akbari Nov 29 '12 at 15:13
