I'm working with a fresh install programmatically.
I create taxonomies, terms, posts, on the fly without the dashboard. It's a
process for me with lots of trials and errors.
Many times, I want to start with a fresh slate.
That's where the question is formed. What's the most effective way to bring
the wp to the starting ( well, almost starting ) phase, programmatically?
If I drop the database with a mysql statement, wp would create the tables
and that would give me a fresh slate but that would also blow the bloginfo
and admin user etc.
All I care is to clean the wp_post, post_meta, where terms and taxonomies
stored. no need to clean the options table.
If I delete the records, that does not help cause then my IDs won't start
What's a good way to handle this?
