Doesn't show all custom fields, though (even if you choose Show Hidden) - would be nice to have them as a list instead of a dropdown, but otherwise it does what it promises.

Works with wordpress 5.0.3 and does an amazing job. It is better than I hoped - shows stats, relations and details about deleted fields.

This plugin is VERY old but it does what it's supposed to do and does it well. It has saved me many hours of work trying to clean up installs. Thanks for leaving it out there for those of us who can use it.
