    The custom fields data is still found in database after delete permanently on the WordPress admin panel. Is there any add-on to remove the data from database too?

    I asked about this four months ago but didn't get any answer:

    Aight homies, I figured it out.

    If you've uninstalled the plugin, reinstall it. With this plugin activated, go to Custom Fields > Custom Fields in the WP admin. Next permanently delete the items found in the trash. This is will get rid of the extraneous custom field keys.

    Josh out.

    This trick is not working for me. I've got an old field that I can't purge from the 'post create' page. It only shows when the plugin is active but is not available in the plugin's UI for editing or deleting.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled to try and purge it and it just comes right back! Also tried emptying cache.

    Any ideas?
