Sometimes you wish for something… like a plugin that will magically erase what you’ve done and reset WordPress to its default settings…and then the stars align. You find out it exists in the form of the WordPress Reset plugin.
Love that feeling. (What else should I wish for?).
The WordPress Reset plugin removes any customization and content, resets the database to its default settings, and will reactivate after the reset.
It’s a simple thing, but oh so useful during WordPress theme or plugin development.
Note: you’ll want to be careful and use it sparingly since it is the nuclear option.
Also note: it’s not advisable to use it with a multisite install though you may want to check the logs on it to see if that’s been updates since this post was written.
