Database infested by Revision Control, how to remove them??

    @justatest47

    Hi, my database is now literally INFESTED with lines such as this one:

    INSERT INTO wp_postmeta (meta_id, post_id, meta_key, meta_value) VALUES(05908, 1047, ‘_revision-control’, ‘a:1:{i:0;s:8:”defaults”;}’);

    This is caused by this plugin, right? I’m asking because it clearly says ‘_revision-control’ in the meta_key.

    Or maybe they were created by wordpress itself and not by this plugin?

    Is there any way to DELETE THEM ALL? Please make an update to the plugin and add a proper “Uninstall” button that removes all these left-behinds. I’m calling them “left behinds” because I no longer use this plugin and I don’t want my database to contain these.

    I would say, take a backup then run a query to the effect of

    DELETE *
    FROM your_table_prefix_here_postmeta
    WHERE meta_key = '_revision-control'

    Thanks Scott but before I run that command, the question is, are these lines added by this plugin or are they added by WordPress itself??
