WordPress Development Tool Built by Developers for Developers

No bloat; just the tools you need to develop faster

We use WP Reset every day to develop, debug and maintain dozens of WordPress themes & plugins. We only add features that are needed to get the job done.

One Click Site Reset

It’s as easy and as fast as it sounds. Whenever you need a fresh WordPress installation just click “reset” & wait a few seconds.

WP-CLI Compatible

You’re more of a typing than clicking guy? We have you covered! WP Reset is 100% WP-CLI compatible making it super-fast to work with.


No outsourced nonsense. When you need help you’ll get it from the people who built the plugin and use it every day – for free!

Post-Reset Setup

No need to manually set options or reactivate plugins & themes. WP Reset will reconfigure your environment just the way you want it.

Database Snapshots

Have some demo data or custom tables that you need for testing? No sweat. Just restore your installation to the selected snapshot.

Database Diff Viewer

Not sure what that pesky plugin or theme changed in your database? Find out with one click & get a visual representation of the data.

Join over 70,000+ developers that save time by using WP Reset

Just search for “WP Reset” in your admin “Add New Plugin” screen, or click the download button below.

You have questions we have answers.

Can I accidentally reset my site?

No, that’s not possible due to multiple fail-safe mechanisms. You have to confirm the reset action in several different ways.

Will resetting modify any files?

No. Resetting does not modify or delete any files; core, plugin, theme or uploaded ones.

Will resetting delete my custom database tables?

It depends. WP Reset will erase (drop) all tables that have the same table prefix as defined in wp-config.php. That includes any custom tables you have. It will not delete any other tables in the active database.

Will active plugins be automatically reactivated?

No. At the moment only WP Reset will be reactivated after resetting. We’re working on options to reactivate other plugins too.

Will my theme be reactivated after resetting?

No. Default, 2017 theme will be activated. We’re working on options to reactivate the previously active theme.

Is this plugin dangerous?

In the sense that it will delete all of your data after you confirm the action three times – yes. In the sense that it’ll do something on its own – no.

Is it WP-MU compatible?

WP-MU compatibility hasn’t been properly tested although we have reports from users that everything is OK. So, please, proceed with caution.

I don’t understand the point of this plugin

If you don’t develop themes, plugins or create WP sites in general, then you probably don’t need it. If you do, it’ll help you when things get messy, and you need to start from scratch.

JavaScript console.log Tricks (From a Lazy Developer)

Developers often underestimate the time it takes to debug something. Consequently, we are too lazy (and proud) to get a proper debugging environment going because, well, it’s a simple problem & will only take “a few minutes” to fix. This is where console.log() comes into play. It might be dirty debugging, but it works. Years of experience have thought me a few tricks with console that save serious amounts of time & nerves.

PHP Namespaces in WordPress – a No Nonsense Guide

PHP namespaces are almost ten years old (yes, you’re getting old). Despite a decade passing by since PHP v5.3 was released many developers still don’t have a basic understanding of namespaces. Truth be told WordPress doesn’t use namespaces so “you don’t need to know how to use namespaces.” You don’t need to be a namespace ninja but getting a grasp on the basics is simple and will do you good.

Force Reload Even the Most Stubbornly Cached CSS Files

There’s nothing more frustrating than a machine that refuses to do what you tell it. “Reload the page” – a simple action, that can cause so much frustration because it just doesn’t work. CSS files often don’t get reloaded. Yes, we all know cache is to blame but how to get around it without drastic measures? Years of frustration have led me to this simple one-click solution that always works.
