After struggling to edit my site from having far too many themes from my own indecisiveness, and cluttering everything beyond my own control, this was the perfect plugin I needed. It has saved me lots of time, and headaches. Perfect for a WordPress luddite like me!

I wanted to get rid of my old info and tweaks, this was the best option

Ok, does what it should. Except: 1. It should first delete custom table/views and than truncate wordpress tables. I have some foreign key constraints on wp_users which will leave orphaned records. Maybe you should leave custom tables/views untouched. 2. It deactivates cache plugins but it does not clear the cache. So though the posts and pages were reset to it's defaults the cache still shows old stuff. So i had to activate the cache plugin again just to clean the cache.
