WP Database Cleaner

Description

WP Database Cleaner is a easy to use WordPress plugin that allow users to quickly cleanup and optimize the WordPress database by removing all spam comments, trash comments, unused tags, post revisions, auto drafts, and much more.

When you have a WordPress site that has a lot of visitors, and presumibly a lot of comments, you may find that a high number of comments will be placed in the spam folder. It is not good to have 10k spam comments saved in the database, because all of these comments can increase consistently the size of the mysql database backups.

If you have a lot of published posts, you may have post revisions and auto-drafts saved in the database, that can slow down the database performances. All this data is considered junk and it should be cleaned frequently.

Reviews

delete 986 trashed posts in 2 seconds

Normally I do not review plugins after one use. However, I was expecting to wait 5 minutes for the trash to be taken out. Kinda how my wife feels on rainy days.
I clicked delete trash posts and BOOM! they were gone.

Easy to find and use administration.
Simple tick selection and click proceed.

DONE!

Great job guys.

Adding this to my list of must have plugins.
