    if youre not using them, what, would make you think you cant? just curious…

    Just playing safe
    Wouldn’t think it would harm, but since I don’t know the deep logic in databases, I’m checking out.
    Again I can only guess from your answer that it is safe. Not a very risky guess – I guess :o)

    A less obvious question is how to tell exactly which tables I can delete. Their names are not always logical – but maybe there’s some way to identify them?
    Thanks

    Here’s a list you wouldn’t want to delete:
    Database Description

    Otherwise you may have to make best guess with table name vs. plugin name.

    Thanks again Michael – really useful.
    My guess is that the pages will load quicker with less tables (?) – anyhow, no use in keeping them. Spring cleaning to be done :o)

    And of course, you know to do a backup before BLOW things up 😉

    WordPress Backups

    Of course. With the best backup tool/ plugin out there.
    (Just check which version is compatible with your WP version – eg v231 for WP26)
