Just deleted 1600+ Revisions with one click

I've used this plugin on over 20 WordPress sites, and it always works like a charm. It's a great way to get rid of all the revisions that slow a database down.

Useful and fast: that's it.

Still working and very useful plugin! Coders should keep an eye on it for future versions too.

Easy and Effective
By , for WP 3.4.2

This plugin is very easy to use and is extremely effective. I just finished building a new WordPress site and found that I had over 500 revisions to pages and posts. I backed up my database and used this plugin to remove earlier revisions. Now I can work from a clean slate. I highly recommend this plugin to others.

Was very helpful in reducing the size of my database, which was mushrooming!

Great Tool, still working on WordPress 3.5

I hope this plugin will stay supported till the day has come that WordPress has a native function to manage (disable, limit, cleanup) post revisisions.

Thanks you Galerio and Urda.

Does the job
By , for WP 3.4.2

I have a new blog and had many revisions due to learning my way through all the features, plugins etc, so after a month or so had 1,400 revisions in all.

This took them all out in a trice.

One word of caution. After deleting the revisions, I couldn't access PHPmyAdmin, and got a 'Cannot start session without errors' warning.

Clearing the browser cache and restarting the browser fixed that (it's a cookie session issue); a moment of panic though. It's not the plugin though, so be aware of that one.

Not tried the optimise function yet, as I don't need to, hence 4 stars.
