I am pruning my WordPress site's MySQL database and noticed that there are thousands of rows in the postmeta table with the prefix "BS_".

BS_author_type
BS_guest_author_name
BS_guest_author_url
BS_guest_author_description
BS_guest_author_image_id

Are these generated by WordPress or by a plugin that I might have added and removed before? I tried googling the meta-keys as well as the prefix BS_ and the only result I got is a Romanian webpage with random code and a few images on it.

    They're from wordpress.org/plugins/guest-author. The keys obviously suggested they were from a guest author plugin, so I searched Google for guest author plugins, opened the first result, browsed the code, and found that it uses those keys. Jun 10, 2020 at 15:40
