This plugin adds the following maintenance tools …
Enable / Disable debug.log
Enable or disable the PHP errors saved into /wp-content/debug.log by automatically editing wp-config.php for you.
Delete scheduled events in WP CRON that have no associated actions.
Delete all widgets that do not have an associated sidebar or widget area registered with the active theme.
Legacy widgets cause issues in the Block Widget editor due to a bug whereby the wp_footer hook is fired. This plugin will detect legacy widget use and will prompt for you to convert them to Block Widgets.
Delete all pending comments, all spam comments, empty the comments bin or delete all comments.
Close comments on all posts and future posts.
Detect and Delete Un-Used Language Files
If you have changed the language of your WordPress installation or no longer use a theme or plugin, you probably have several .po, .mo and .json language files that can be deleted.
Purge Flamingo Contacts or Messages
Tools to delete all contacts or messages from Flamingo plugin.
Purge Auto Drafts
Detect and delete all auto drafts (posts with “auto-draft” set as the “post_status”).
Purge oEmbed Caches
We’ve noticed a couple of sites with crazy numbers of rows in wp_posts table with oembed_cache post type. WordPress uses oEmbed to receive embed code for supported content such as YouTube videos. This data should be stored in the wp_postmeta table but (probably since this update) WordPress can add this data into the wp_posts table. So we’ve added a check for these posts and an option to delete them.
Detect and delete all post revisions (posts with “revision” set as the “post_type”).
You can now also set a WordPress CRON job to delete revisions on a daily basis by setting how many of the latest revisions you want to retain.
Enable / Disable WP Cron
Enable or disable WP Cron by automatically editing wp-config.php for you.
Enable / Disable Theme and Plugin Editors
Enable or disable the Theme and Plugin editors by automatically editing wp-config.php for you.
Enable Core Automatic Updates
If your WordPress site has had core updates disabled through AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED being set in wp-config.php, this plugin will detect this and give you the option to enable core updates.
Recover Lost Custom CSS
If your Custom CSS in “Customizer – Additional CSS” has suddenly vanished, the plugin will detect that and give the option to recover the CSS.
Disable Link Manager
If your WordPress site has the “Links” dashboard panel and default links but you don’t want this redundant functionality, this plugin gives you the option to delete all links and disable the link manager.
Delete upload_path Option
If you have migrated your website from one web server to another and you can no longer upload anything to the website, it’s likely that the “upload_path” option is set to the location on your old server and needs to be deleted. This plugin allows you to do that easily.
Convert Tables to InnoDB
If any or all of your database tables use the MyISAM engine then you can use this plugin to convert them (if possible) to the InnoDB engine which has shown to perform better and is more reliable as it has full table-level locking which allows queries to process faster.
Enable Database Tools
This plugin, when active, enables WordPress default database repair and optimise tools for admins and provides a link to them so you can easily repair and optimise the tables in your database.
Change Admin Email
The usual option in “Dashboard – Settings – General – Administration Email Address” requires the new email address to be confirmed before the admin email is changed. This is sometimes not always possible so we have added a feature to update this setting without requiring the confirmation email.
Persistent Object Cache
Since WordPress v6.1 the Site Health check has started recommending if you should be using a “Persistent Object Cache” without actually explaining why. This plugin will tell you exactly why this is appearing.
wp_posts Table Analysis
Further to the above, if Site Health detects you have over 1,000 posts in the wp_posts table, it will show you what post types are in the table so you can see if this is expected or not.
wp_options Table Analysis
We’ve made some superb tools to allow you to detect and delete un-used options in the options table …
- Show the top ten largest, inactive options
Options can be deleted (single or group delete options available) or looked up on Google for further information
- Show the top ten largest, active options
Options can be deleted or looked up on Google for further information
- All inactive options are shown alphabetically
The option value is shown when you hover your mouse over and options can be deleted (single or group delete options available) or looked up on Google for further information
These tools are excellent for very quickly detecting and removing options left by plugins you no longer use or by identifying options that are taking up large amounts of data.
