One of the long term problems with WordPress is that as your site mattures and as plugins get abandonded and replaced you acculumate bloat in your databas that needs to be cleaned up. This plugin help you with that task by helping clear out the junk in your database tables. It shows you what tables are using the most space giving you and idea on what tables you can clean up.

Requires: or higher

Released:01 January 1970
Last Updated:01 January 1970
(0 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
I had reviewed this plugin in the past on Episode 61 WP Plugins A to Z back in March 6, 2012 6 years ago. Now while this plugin has not been updated in all this timme it still work the way it was supposed to. It allows you to see all tables that are no longer being used by any plugins on your site and sinply delete theme. This is useful if you have removed plugins from your site because there are may WordPress plugins that do not clean up after themselves much your kids they just leave a mess around. Since it is so old the best thing to do with this plugin is to install remove the junk then remove this plugin.

The Last Couple Plugins Today:

WP DB Migrate pro

The Lowdown:
This is a plugin I had been wanting to try for a while but the price held me off it for a long time until I could justify it. In the past year I had become busy enough to need something that makes the job of keeping dev site in snyc with live sites without allot of work. I also discovered that with this plugin you can make the job of extracting a site from an MU environment a much easier task. It is a premium plugin starting at $99 but most developer will need the $249 developer version.

WP DB Migrate pro will allow you to sync sites and not only import the database but you can also import all the media files with it and they have just released a beta that will allow you to transfer the plugins and keep them in sync. What I found most useful was how this plugin will let you easily extract a single site from an MU enviroment it re maps all the URLs for the database and the media. And if you have ever done a manual extraction of an MU site you will understand the hours this plugin saves for you. While the cost of this plugin is up there the time and grief it save are worth every penny.

PDF Embedder

Requires:5.8 or higher
Compatible up to:6.5.4
Released:21 January 2015
Last Updated:12 June 2024
(4.4 star out of 5)

The Lowdown:
Embedding PDFs into WordPress has always been a pain most plugin make the task difficult at best and the native function only embeds a link into the site for people to click on. This plugin actually makes the task of embedding the document to be viewed on the page an easy task. and if you jump to the provesion you get even more control over how it displays and allows for people to download it easily and even to print it out.
