UPDATED PLUGIN RELEASE: GD BBPRESS TOOLBOX PRO 7.0
Fully rewritten, with improved performance, many new features and the Booster.
Niš, Serbia, January 23, 2023. Dev4Press today announced the release of a new plugin for WordPress: SweepPress, in both Pro and Lite editions. SweepPress is a full-featured solution for clean up of WordPress website database, removal of unused or obsolete data, and optimization of database tables. Removing old and unused data from the database is an essential step in optimizing database performance. The plugin provides 27 Sweepers that target different types of clean-up operations (for posts, comments, users, terms, options) with support for WordPress Multisite.
Version 7.0 completes the process of the full plugin rewrite and code base improvements for newer versions of PHP. The plugin system requirements are updated, and the plugin is fully tested with the latest PHP versions, 8.1 and 8.2.
The star of this release is the first version of the Booster feature, which aims to improve the overall speed of the bbPress queries relying on the postmeta database table, with the cache database tables holding fully indexed data for forums, topics and replies. Several default bbPress queries and many more Toolbox queries are supported by the Booster. Booster introduces significant performance improvements for supported queries, and depending on the database size, boosted queries are 20 to 50 times faster than the default queries.
Version 7.0 also fixes close to 10 bugs and removes unused code and files, previously deprecated functions, methods, and more. More functions and methods have been deprecated, to be removed in the next major updates later this year.
