What’s the state of the art on this issue of deleting unused/orphaned field data?
I read the long thread, which is now closed – https://support.advancedcustomfields.com/forums/topic/flush-unused-custom-fields/page/4/
– @marcwieland95’s whatwedo-acf-cleaner seems high-risk – blind deletion of database data
– @Bettylex’s edit-custom-fields plugin was removed from the repo on security grounds but is still on GitHub.
– Can I learn how to delete orphaned ACF fields by searching under the general bracket of removing WordPress orphaned custom meta data, or is there something unique about ACF’s involvement?
I am identifying fields to delete, but I’m hesitant to do so in case I have no way to remember their names. And that doesn’t even include the “how” of deleting specific fields.
