Support » Fixing WordPress » Remove old (oprhan?) metadata

  • In the past I’ve written product reviews on my website and I used custom fields to display them in an uniform way. Don’t ask me why i did that, but as far as I remember I could not find the right plugins back in the day, a few years ago. To completely revamp my website I want to use a plugin, as well as perform some other changes. I want to get rid of all old, now redundant data I once added. I think it’s called orphaned metadata, but I’m not sure if that is the correct term? Anyhow, is there a way to get completely rid of all these additional data tied to my articles, and basically only keep the plain text, title, and other default wordpress data?

  • WP-Optimize is a database optimizer that will give you a report offering to help delete orphan data entries and go on to optimize your database. That’s what I use on most of my Installs.

    It will work hand in hand with UpDraftPlus and can be configured to run automatically.

    Thanks for the advice. I just tried WP-Optimize, but it did not removed the data strangely enough. When I export my articles, I can still see the data once added by an now no longer installed plugin. Any other ideas?
