Thanks for a really nice plugin. I've used it on dozens of websites and it it works flawless.
Here are a few suggestions for UX improvements that would make it five stars:
Add a "Delete all unsused tables" button as a shortcut
Make it possible to sort the rows by clicking "Table name", "Records", "KBytes" and "Plugin name"
Display a summary of the amount of saved KBs after deleting unused tables.
Keep upp the good work!
This plugin is extremely simple to use and does exactly what it is supposed to do. I love being able to delete tables full of items left over from long removed plugins, making the database more compact and therefore speeding up the site.
The plugin will still show you what tables are either not in use or for a plugin that is not activated.
Always do a full backup of your table prior to using this or any db plugin. I find the Duplicator plugin is a great way to backup databases and highly recommend that plugin - its free for databases and it will depend on your host configuration as to how large a site you can fully backup using it without needing the pro version. On my webhost 247wphosting.com I can use free duplicator even though my site is 2gb in size due to the images and large amount of content.
When you checkmark a table now it hides it auto, and you have to rescan to see that it is checkmarked.
Then if you hit the removal button at the bottom, you will go through some prompts and eventually it will perform the removal action and if you rescan it will no longer show the table.
But if you go into mysql subsequently the tables are still there.
So I think the author has an issue.
So in summary the analysis of the database still works but the removal function does not work correctly, in my experience.
I don't know at what point it stopped working. It no longer detects tables left behind by uninstalled plugins and simply displays a message saying that the database is optimized.
It is no longer useful.
