    I’ve noticed that Maps that were associated with posts from a hidden custom field don’t get deleted when the original post gets deleted. This results in a lot of orphaned maps being held in the database – all with the same title of the custom field.

    It would be great if there was an option to have all orphaned maps deleted periodically to keep the database as slim as possible.

    Hi,

    Thanks very much for reporting this.

    You’re right, there was a bug in which maps weren’t deleted from the database, as you noticed.  It’s been fixed since beta 2.38.1.

    If you like, you can try out the latest beta (2.38.3 as I write this) – it includes a lot of new features as well as that fix.

    A future release will be converting the maps to custom post types, and I’ll include a cleanup routine at that time to remove all of the old map data (including the orphans).

    Okay, great. I think I’ll wait for the next release. If the maps become custom post types and accessible through the WP admin interface, that would be fantastic.
