I, too, have been looking for exactly this. Perhaps it was hard to find due to the name! I used another of this author's plugins, and stumbled on this one in the process. Intrigued by the name, I checked it out, and I'm so happy I did!!

While I do agree that it would help if it were "multisite friendly" it's definitely not a deal breaker. If you're a multisite user, you pretty much need to understand your own database and how it works, and if you don't, you should not be using a plugin like this anyway. So who cares if it sees all the tables from other sites? To me it's SO worth it to have a plugin that can tell if something is garbage or not, whether the plugin is in use or not, etc.

Of course, you can't go deleting things willy-nilly and hoping a plugin will have your back. But if you want one that gives great insight into what's going on with your database, and you have the smarts to figure out what you should and should not delete (and make a backup before you do!) then this one is AWESOME!!!! and does exactly what it is advertised to do.

Thank you!!!

Must have if you use plugins. Unique and effective,

I have been looking for a plugin like this since I started using WP. I use a lot of plugins. I try a lot of plugins to find what I need. I know that they create things and leave them behind.

I have optimizers and use them regularly. This plugin found all sorts of non- WP core stuff. Each item found is clearly indicated with the plugin it is associated with - and whether those plugins are active/inactive or not there.

I had/have posted support questions about this exact thing, and now closed the last thread.
Thanks for an important and unique plugin.

Drastically increased speed

Thanks for writing such a helpful plugin. It took a while to click on each checkbox but once I did, the plugin cleaned everything up quickly and thoroughly. My network multisite immediately ran faster, especially in the dashboard. Cheers!

Great plugin

This plugin is working great. It displays tables usage clearly, and you can understand what is good and what trash. Thank you.

p.s. It is not multisite friendly, it shows the other site tables as trash.

Great stuff!

A great plugin, thanks to the developer for developing. I like to know that I've not got any reduntant tables lurking around in my database and this seems to do the job of identifying them an removing them...


Very useful
