Delete Orphaned Meta Data in WordPress

Delete Post Meta Data

Sometimes while developing a new plugin you have to do lots of database work including creating posts, editing posts, and deleting posts. All of these actions affect the post meta data table and if you aren’t careful with how to manage the post meta data you’ll have thousands and thousands of rows of data. By deleting orphaned post meta data (meta data belonging to posts which no longer exist) you immediately remove thousands of records that weren’t doing anything.
