    Hi,

    Thank you for your great plugin!

    There is an issue with creating many useless tables in wp_options!
    How to get ride of this issue! I'm using this plugin for awhile now and after few updates ago, wp_options size suddenly increased from 50M to 400M!

    I will appreciate if you tell me how can I prevent this plugin from creating these tables!

    Kind regards,

    That's weird and I haven't seen such behavior. What entries created by the plugin do you see in wp_options?

    Hi,

    It create tables in wp_options like this:

    option_name>>
    _transient_dwls_res61_07fe7877ce3bce0a2a005820c933d15d

    or

    option_name>>
    _transient_timeout_dwls_res61_a877405c96f2ae49555c0ce88e631856

    Those are WordPress transients, which Dave's WordPress Live Search uses for caching. WordPress should delete old transients when a request for the same data comes in but the cached version is expired, but if this isn't happening frequently enough you can force expiration with a plugin like https://github.com/Seebz/Snippets/tree/master/Wordpress/plugins/purge-transients

    Hope that helps!

    - Dave
