For this tutorial we will be using the WordPress Database Reset plugin found here:

Before resetting your content, we would recommend creating a backup for safety. With the plugin installed and activated, you would go under Tools, Database Reset to choose what tables to reset. You can select specific tables to reset or the plugin gives the option to select all tables.

You can decide to reactivate your plugins and theme or not depending on your preference. With that selected, you will add the security code and press submit. The plugin will give you a final warning and as soon as you hit the Okay button it will begin the process of removing your content.

    Hi there! So I’m new to creating my website.. I signed up thru Bluehost for WordPress and have my domain/tag line established… my site is all over the place and i want to start over from scratch. Will doing this keep the original info (domain, account, tag line info) created during set up? And then just allow me to start over with what is visually seen
