    ‘Analyze (summary): analyzes the database and gives the count of what will be cleaned
    ‘Analyze (detail): analyzes the database and gives a detailed report of what will be deleted
    ‘Optimize (summary): actually deletes the items and gives the count of what has been deleted
    ‘Optimize (detail): actually deletes the items and gives a detailed report of what has been deleted

    Multisite Support

    • ‘Network Activate’ the plugin
    • You only can configure and run the plugin on the main network site, but it will optimize ALL the sub-sites too!
