How to Delete all WordPress Posts and Comments

There are times, when we are testing WordPress on local environment, we have to delete all comments and posts in WordPress. Manually deleting all content would not be that easy, and it’s better if we use some SQL command or any plugin to delete all posts in WordPress. Before, we move ahead here are some more WordPress tips, which you would like to read:

Wp Suicide plugin: Delete WordPress posts with one click

The plugin, which I’m talking about here is call Wp Suicide plugin. This plugin will  be useful when you want to delete everything and want to start over with a fresh blog. Though I highly recommend while using this plugin , Check every settings.

Usage :

This plugin might not be for every one , but will be useful for many who are looking to start from fresh or in the same situation like my new client. Unluckily, this plugin is not available on official WordPress plugins repo. But, here is the link to the author page and when I tried it on WordPress 3.3 it worked without any issue. If you are using this plugin on your live site, make sure you take complete backup of WordPress database and files. Since wp-suicide is not available in official WordPress repo and I’m sure many of you might not be ccomfortabledownloading plugin from other resource, here is a new plugin call  WordPress reset, which does the similar job. Do let us know, which method you are using to delete posts, comments, tags, categories at one go? Or you simply reinstall WordPress?

      Hey Sourish
      I’m not using any plugin. Its Thesis Theme feature.
