How to return a WordPress installation to its initial state • WordPress Help

I know it may seem crazy, but there are times when you need to return a WordPress installation to its original state , with the database completely clean of content and personalizations.

There are situations in which, after a period of testing, you want to return an installation at the beginning, eliminating everything you've done along the way, and you do not have to delete everything and back to the beginning, fortunately.

For example, if you create a site to test themes or plugins, or if you start a project and, after the first experiments, you want to go back to the beginning but eliminating all the junk tables that plugins and other customizations have left by means.

A clean and, above all, very fast method is to use the plugin called WordPress Database Reset . Once installed you have a simple, at the same time dangerous because of its radical utility settings screen.

The best thing about the plugin is that it is not only valid for this So radical function of which I have spoken to you, but is also a good system to erase crap that accumulates in tables as wp_options .

In the settings page located in " Tools -> Database Reset " you can, for this, choose a table or all (by clicking on " Select all "). Then the plugin generates a random text string that you must enter in the following text box and, finally, press the button Reset Database .

If you only choose a table, you simply clean your settings by default, something that also has its risks, of course. But if you choose all the cleaning is total, then eliminates users, entries, pages, any configuration, everything . The only thing left will be the initial admin user and the default entry, page and comment of any WordPress installation.

Of course, there is no undo button so it's better that before you use it you have from an updated backup of the database, in case you regret it, you know.

The plugin works great so there will be no going back, so use it only for very special situations.

Add social media icons in • WordPress Help

In, as we already know, there are more limitations when adding features or extras to the site. And an "extra" that always comes perfect is the ability to add icons linked to our social networks or those of our site. On the Automattic platform you can do it in two ways:

First, you must upload the logos that you want to use to your site, going to Media> Add new.

Then, with a little bit of HTML and shortcodes, add the icons to a text widget:

Replace the text in brackets with the URL of the account or the corresponding icon. You can add as many accounts as you wish. I hope it's useful.

I disable Emojis support in WordPress?

Una la las news of WordPress 4.2 more controversial, interestingly, it has been the incorporation of support for Emojis in addition to native Unicode characters in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, mathematical and musical symbols, and hieroglyphic symbols.

 unicode wordpress support

It's worth many of us who do not use the Han character set to write in Chinese , nor block in Japanese or Korean but who does not use the Emojis daily on their mobile?

I use them, and a lot. In addition, I think we will all agree that we must promote the mobile use of WordPress although it seems to me that this support could have been incorporated in a more transparent way, or at least have offered some option where activate it or not why?

Basically because from WordPress 4.2 a series of lines are added in the header of our site that load with extra lines of CSS and JavaScript that not everyone will want, right? I mean all this:

Total nothing, huh?

If you're from those who prefer save a few seconds of loading your Web or simply if you are clear that you do not want to offer the Emojis you can remove this novelty in a couple of ways.

Deactivate Emojis support with code

Just add the following code to the file functions.php of your theme or your utilities plugin for disable Emojis support .
