As someone who is new to blogging and WordPress within the last year, I kept thinking I was missing something...there had to be a way to purge so many revisions of each post that I had piling up. Finally, I started searching for a plug-in to do the trick and I am so grateful I found this. I was surprised how much DB space this freed up and it's nice to have it run automatically each week. I would highly recommend...something every blogger or website developer should have!
A lot of the other plugins dont work on an older version of WP, so i would first have to upgrade, make full backups, and... no wait, my diskspace is full.
Removed revisions and kept x versions that you indicate.
Found out most of my database was filled by a visitorinfo logging plugin called wassup.
Removed the data from the wassup via the wassup plugin.
But it still said 400 MB.
Then chose in this plugin to optimize the wp_wassup table, and my 400 Mb where freed up.
One minus: Did seem to optimize some tables, although i specifically excluded them... Needs to be looked at. Still 5 star for helping me save space. I can lower my subscription at my isp.
ran it and about 3 seconds cleared out 5,000+ revisions and saved 20 MB off the DB size. Excellent!
Tested this on a multisite/multi-network/buddypress set up - locally and online.
All good so far.
Wirkt wunder! Bin zu 100% zufrieden.
So handy when migrating a large old site and you need to reduce the DB size. Thank you!
The plugin is great and absolutely useful, but the support is unvaluable!
Fast, reliable and very professional! Thank you Rolf.
This works well, and trimmed out many revisions, I set it to leave just 1 revision. It trimmed 41.5 MB on the first run, reducing down to 68.12 MB from 109 MB
But the fact that it can also automatically remove all comments marked as spam saves me another job each day. 5 stars for this.
Thanks for great plugin. Very useful
Very helpful and easy to use. Thanks for this.
