How to remove excess revisions in WordPress

Last updated December 6th, 2023 06:26

If you’ve noticed a significant slowdown in your WordPress, it’s possible that a large number of revisions are blocking your site’s speed and responsiveness. From time to time, it’s a good idea to remove revisions, especially if you know there are old posts on your site that are unlikely to be significantly edited and that you won’t need to revert to older versions of those posts. So lets take a look, how to remove excess revisions in WordPress.

Before deleting revisions, always carefully consider whether you will really need older versions of posts, or alternatively, make a backup of your database.

I use a very simple and small plugin called Sweep to remove revisions. You can find it in the official WordPress repository, and installation is done directly through the plugins tab in the administration panel. The plugin is very intuitive and easy to use. In this article, I will describe only the deletion of revisions for greater simplicity. We can address a complete description of the plugin elsewhere if needed.

Sweep Plugin

After installing the plugin, you can find its settings in the left panel under the “Tools” tab. As for revisions, they are right at the top of the plugin. You can delete revisions with just one click of the Sweep button. Therefore, always carefully consider such an action in advance. If you don’t have a database backup, deleting revisions this way will remove them completely.
