Deletes all custom fields attached to non-existing post IDs
By , for WP 4.2.2

I guess I thought this plugin would delete all usused custom fields, as in blanks.

But its setting page says:

Delete all custom fields from non-existing posts

Warning: clicking "Delete" would remove all post meta for the post IDs below permanently from the database!

Post IDs found in the table without corresponding posts in wp_posts:

Press the "Delete" button if you want to remove all postmeta for these post IDs.

So I guess that's a good cleanup task to do too.

Thanks for the free plugin!

Great Start

This is exactly what I was looking for! It worked pretty good for what I needed.

One improvement I would suggest is to find a way to deal with massive amounts of unused post meta. I had about 100,000 rows of unused post meta, and it wouldn't work. I deleted a bunch I knew for sure I didn't need, got it under 20,000 and it worked fine.
