What are WordPress dashboard transient feeds and how to clean them?

Transient are a way for storing cached data temporarily in your database by given it a name and a timeframe after which it will expire and be deleted.
To clean these dashboard transient feeds, you can either use our plugin Advanced Database Cleaner, or execute the following sql code (which is used by the plugin) directly via your phpMyAdmin:

DELETE FROM options WHERE option_name LIKE ‘_site_transient_browser_%’ OR option_name LIKE ‘_site_transient_timeout_browser_%’ OR option_name LIKE ‘_transient_feed_%’ OR option_name LIKE ‘_transient_timeout_feed_%’
