If you've ever needed to reset WordPress -- to remove all pages, posts, comments, and so on -- then you're in the right spot. This issue often comes up once you've finished building a custom theme or when you want to remove the temporary Theme Unit Test Data content. The good news is that you don't need to uninstall and reinstall WordPress or dig through databases. I'd love to show you a much faster way to remove your WordPress site's content while maintaining it's structure and design. Let's take a look!
Here are some additional links and resources mentioned in today's tutorial. Enjoy!
- In a previous video, I show you how to easily add temporary posts, pages, comments, and images using what's called Theme Unit Test Data. Take a look at Temporarily Add Placeholder Pages, Posts, And More To Your WordPress Website.
- Before removing your site's pages and posts, it's a good idea to back up your data. You can either do this manually or automatically. I show you the steps in How To Manually Back Up Your WordPress Website and How To Automatically Back Up WordPress.
- If you're using WP Engine for your web hosting, you may want to make use of staging servers, which are included in your hosting plan. If you're unsure how they work, or how you might use them to reset your WordPress website, take a look at Easy Site Testing And Updating With WP Engine Staging Servers.
