Support » Theme: Tracks » Why is there a post in my SQL database called safecss?

  • Resolved Joe Streno


    I have been having problems with Shareaholic scanning my blog to give me “Related Items” at the bottom of each post.

    One of the pages that gets dragged is called “safecss”. I have no idea where this comes from. Though maybe it was associated with Tracks or Tracks Child Theme. If I look in my WP Posts Admin, I can not locate the Post ID. This is so odd. The URL for the page directs to my home page, because the URL is written like a query

    If I search my SQL database for “safecss” this is the record I find:

    ID : 7631
    Post Date: 2015-02-07 20:10:52
    Post Title: safecss
    Post Excerpt: Tracks Child
    Post Status: Published
    Post Name: safecss
    Post Type: safecss

    Is this Tracks related? Any ideas?

    Have you ever used this plugin, or the Jetpack plugin for adding CSS to your site?

    I don’t think this is related to Tracks because the data from the Custom CSS input is saved in the db with the other Customizer options, rather than as a custom post type.


    No never used the Custom CSS plugin. I may have used Jetpack Custom CSS at one time. Though not sure. My blog had gone through many iterations, redesigns & updates since starting it 10 years ago. Guess if I looked closely, there’s probably a lot of “gunk” in the database.

    Northwood Creative,

    I had seen that post, and a few others that said the safecss “garbage” comes from transferring your database; which I did do several months ago when switching hosting companies.

    Just wanted to be sure it didn’t have anything to do with Tracks, because of the Post Excerpt: Tracks Child entry in the database.

    Thanks to you both. I think I’ll be brave back up my database and delete the entry hoping nothing blows up. =:o

    No problem Joe. I think that would be best – do a quick backup of the db and child theme, and then remove the entry. I saw some others online have done this without issue.
