[resolved] Finding plugin that created database table (2 posts)

    This is a great plugin. This question is not a problem with it but a how to. There are a number of tables it finds that have obscure names that I don't recognized. A long time ago I found what looked like the repository of all the plugins for wordpress. I did a search on it and found some code I was looking for. Now I can't seem to find it again. Is anyone aware of a place to search for table names created by plugins?

    Also I will re-ask the unanswered question below, how does this plugin know if a table is being used or not?

    Thanks

    This plugin basically identifies all tables in your WP system and then it does a series of searches in all of the plugin directories and files based on the table name string without the prefix. (The plugin will ignore WordPress core tables to prevent accidental deletion)

    If the search comes up false then it will list that table as possibly not being used and a candidate for deletion.
    It is the user's responsibility to do any extra checks or perform a DB backup before deciding to delete the table.
