Support » Plugin: wp-Typography » Transients in the wp_options database

  • Resolved andymiller



    I’ve just done a search in phpMyAdmin to find out why my wp_options file is so big. 13 of the top 14 largest items are all transients that, I’m assuming from the names, are from WP Typography. I’ve listed them below. My question is am I safe to delete these?

    I have been using a database optimising plugin and changed the settings to delete expired transients, but that doesn’t seem to have deleted them. So I don’t know if they are unexpired transients, or if there is some other reason why they weren’t deleted.

    I hope this isn’t a dumb question!

    Thanks for your help and for your work on the plugin.

    EDIT: I thought that this might be connected to W3TC, so I tried emptying the object cache, but that doesn’t seem to have made much difference.

    @andymiller: You can safely delete all transients named _transient_typo_php*, they are all outdated. If you were not using a persistent object cache, only three transients would be re-created by the current version of wp-Typography (with slightly different naming, but the same prefix).

    (When you have a persistent object cache plugin enabled, transients are not stored in the options table, so clearing the object cache has no effect on old entries in that table.)

    PS: Please note that _transient_yst_sm_page_1:4mf24_3lpAo in the list above is not one of mine.

    Hi Pepe

    Thanks for the speedy reply.

    Yep, I’m guessing the yst in the other one stands for Yoast.

    Have a good Sunday!
