Over time our sites tend to get cluttered, just like our houses and cars right? This can have a bad effect on your site speed, so its a very good idea to get rid of the excess stuff that is sitting in your trash. This can be the trash from your posts, pages or comments. To clean out the trash what you need to do is to check the trash option at the top of the posts, pages or comments main page. To get to those you click on the one you want to go to off the left side menu. The trash option will look like this:
Just click on the trash button, and then you will want to click on the box to the left of the Title of the page that will select all the items, unless you only want to delete a few items. Then you will want to check the box by the items you want to trash.
After you have all the items check that you want to delete you will want to click on the drop down box that says ‘Bulk Action’ from there you want to choose the ‘Delete Permanently’ option. That will delete all of the items.
Just an FYI after 30 days items in the trash will be deleted automatically, this will just help you to have a cleaner site now instead of waiting.
Your homework now is to go and take out the trash
