If you delete stuff from the admin are they being deleted from the database?

  • Just a question, because I am unaware how a database works.
    If you delete stuff from the admin panel, are they being deleted from the database or they are still traces there?
    In other words, if you write and delete all the time, does the database fills with unwanted stuff?

  • It depends on how well it is coded. You can be confident that any core functionality will keep itself clean.

    Some things can leave behind data, however explicitly deleting should remove them.

    If you have specific concerns about a plugin or theme, you should contacting the author to ask them 🙂

    All your post/page data is stored in the DB. If you delete them, they’re gone.

    So it depends on what ‘things’ we’re talking about 😉
