Does this work with sites that use object caching?

Not at this time, it only works when transients are stored in the options table.

Reviews

Works as expected, helpful for development

If you use your own transients to speed up things, and you make changes in your code, this is a great way to clear your already saved transients without triggering your custom delete action by e.g. having to save a post.

Came to the rescue

I had a unique performance issue which was basically killing my WordPress site. The Transient Manager plugin allowed me to spot something within a few minutes and I got my site back up and running smoothly. It’s definitely a crucial tool for connecting the dots when troubleshooting!

Saved the day more than once

I’ve had a number of times when one of my sites was getting bogged down because of transient issues. Transients Manager helped me investigate, identify the problem so I could fix it, and clear out the mess.
