The plugin deleted all my data! Why?
I have been as clear as I can about the use for this plugin. It creates demo data (posts, pages, comments, users etc) but when you choose to delete that data IT WILL WIPE YOUR ENTIRE WORDPRESS DATABASE.
DO NOT USE THIS PLUGIN ON A PRODUCTION SITE, OR ON A SITE WHERE YOU NEED TO KEEP THE DATA.
When deleting demo data your ENTIRE WordPress database will be reset, deleting ALL your posts, pages, comments and users. ONLY USE THIS PLUGIN ON A SITE WHERE YOU KNOW THE DATABASE CAN BE WIPED.
Why did you write this plugin?
To scratch my own itch when developing sites. Hopefully this plugin helps other developers too.
