    Hi,
    I have uninstalled OceanWP as a theme. I notice that there are lots of leftovers in the database.
    Can you please let me know which database tables OceanWP uses, so I can remove these.

    Thanks.

    Hello, if you want to have a clean website, you can directly use the Database Reset plugin, when you will launch it, the plugin will remove everything so you will have a site as it was new.

    Hi,
    Are you referring to a separate plugin, or to a function inside the theme?

    If the latter please let me know where I the menu I can find these settings.

    If you are referring to a separate plugin to completely reset the WordPress database then no, that’s far from what I want.

    Kindly let me know the answer to my question: ‘please let me know which database tables OceanWP uses, so I can remove these’.

    Hi, it is a plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-database-reset/
    But yes, this plugin is to completely reset the database.
    OceanWP doesn’t use a specific database, like all themes it uses the WordPress databases.

    Hi,
    Could you please escalate the question to someone with more technical background.
    I’m not asking which database, I’m asking which database TABLES.

    Please answer the question.

    Regards

    Hi, it totally depends on your sites, if you add posts, it will be on the _posts table, if you add users, in the _users table, if you change settings, in the _options table, etc… There are many variations, you need to hire someone to do this for you.

    I’m not sure why you conclude I need to hire someone, that’s a bit condescending, especially in the light of your non-technical answers. I’m a WordPress plugin developer myself, with ample WordPress core knowledge.

    No, it does not depend on my site. It depends on your database schema. Your schema dictates which tables you add. Because yes, you add tables to what you call the ‘WordPress database’. The way in which you add tables, and what they are called is determined by you as a plugin/theme developer, and not by WordPress. And that’s why I have to go to the source, and ask the plugin/theme developer (your company) how this is done.

    So, now that we have this cleared up, hopefully you will send actual answers instead of generic replies larded with insults. Please let me know the TECHNICAL answer to my question.

    thatโ€™s a bit condescending, especially in the light of your non-technical answers.

    Let’s tone it down, OK? There wasn’t anything condescending about the author’s replies.

    All support here is voluntary and that includes the author’s time. He’s doing this for free on his own time.

    Can you please let me know which database tables OceanWP uses, so I can remove these.

    As you’ve said, you’re a plugin developer. Search the theme code, locate where and what the theme updates in the database and remove those updates. If you wish to share that here to help others then please feel free to.

    Also? You’re asking for a technical solution but you’re not offering any technical details.

    I notice that there are lots of leftovers in the database.

    Which leftovers?

    Hi Jan,
    Let me be even clearer. I see leftovers with no logical hierarchy throughout the database. That’s why I’m asking a database schema, so I can make sure I go through all places you may have added database tables and fields. Is it really so hard to explain the logic of your database tables?

    Regarding the tone of voice: I don’t see how being a volunteer has anything to do with a tone of voice. And besides, OceanWP is a freemium theme, in my opinion the word volunteer is not accurately reflecting your business model.

    So I would still appreciate your factual answer.

    Hello, first I was not condescending at all, I tried to explain you. I’m not English so sorry if you feel that way.
    What I meant by it depend, is what you did on your site, the theme settings are in the _options table under “theme_mods_oceanwp” but then if you use plugins, you can have other tables to delete.
    Let me know if it was the table you were looking for?

    Thanks, that’s the reply I was looking for!
    Apologies accepted, and on my side also apologies if I made you feel bad, sorry for that.

    Regards.
