Are you looking for a way to automatically empty the trash of your posts and pages? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to empty trash automatically in WordPress.
All you have to do is add this code to your wp-config.php file or in a site-specific plugin:
<?php define('EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS', 5 ); ?>
The number displayed in the function is the number of days between the emptying. You can change it as you want.
Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly add code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
