Optimize Database after Deleting Revisions
[resolved] V 1.3 Rocks - (Product Reivew) (10 posts)

    Version 1.3 now is so refined, extended and thought out, it now joins the group of Ultimate Plugins, simply because of its outreach of functions and performance. The features include:

    1- Provides the option for all imaginable elements to be optimize

    2 - Detailed reporting prior and after optimizing

    3 - Possesses a simple well-organized and great looking dashboard (simple).

    Believe me, it is the only optimizer needed. The release of V.1.3, squarely places this at top receiving a 5 star rating. No longer taking a back seat to any of the WordPress database optimizers this plugin covers all the bases.

    Optimize Database after Deleting Revisions covers all options/scenarios and provides a dashboard which reports much of the details before and after the optimization process. Withstanding all of the details and options, it is very friendly for those who just want to get on with optimizing then get back to writing. Even for the non coder, it is great to see all of the "stuff" that is set to be removed and the results after. Seeing these results is also a confirmation of the impact of the optimization. This helps to validate the importance of optimization, which many times equate to increased page loads, smaller database and faster database backup files.

    Use in combination with Plugin Garbage Collector and you have all the necessary database clean up tools to operate your WordPress site.

    Two suggestions:

    1 - That the name be modified to reflect the versatility of this workhorse and secondly

    2 - There be a log.txt file generate.

    Hey Ron!

    Thanks for all the positive feedback again!

    About your new suggestions:

    I prefer to keep the name the same (for marketing reasons)... will be too confusing if I suddenly change the name... But I agree the name could be more accurate at this point.

    Not sure how useful a log.txt file would be... I don't think anyone would ever look back at the log files. These files will just clutter up the server, imho.

    Thanks again!

    peace,
    Rolf

    The objective for the log file is:

    1 - To show the client what is continuously being generated that is making the database bloated. Unnecessary database bloat may require the admin to use the shell command instead the phpAdmin browse function upon a database restore. This log may help to educate and demonstrate good policies to the client. One policy is to not allow anyone to post as the spam bots are generating needless files within the last week.

    2 - Log files shows that the site is kept up to date and maintained on a regular basis by the admin

    3 - Helps to establish the status of the database before and after the optimization on a particular date. This may help to answer the question, why did data get lost.

    Any database optimization results I think should output a log report (so that it may printed) a document can be instrumental to help analyze page loads, indexing and other database integrity issues. A log file serves to track instances that become one of several methods of troubleshooting.

    Kind regards,

    Ron

    Rolf,

    How difficult would it be to output what you already output to HTML to print-to-file or to screen?

    Regards,

    Ron

    Hey Ron,

    Printing the stuff is (technically) not that hard indeed...

    But then there has to be a maintenance part where you can see the log file(s) and delete them, download them and so on.

    The idea of this plugin is: you click a button once and your database is in good shape.

    So (after thinking about it) I think I won't build in the logging stuff.

    Thanks for your positive feedback anyways! Much appreciated!

    Rolf

    Looks like that "log file" routine got in somehow. :)

    Yes, Ron!

    I added the logging routine as you suggested :-)

    Thanks for your feedback!
