I have deleted a Content Type called news some months ago using Drupal’s Field UI. Now I would like to recreate a new Content Type with the exact same machine name news. However no Content Type shows up. When I take a look at the database a new entry has been created in the node_type table.
Somehow Drupal doesn’t remove the Content Type in the database. What’s the recommended way to cleanup orphaned Content Types? Why does Drupal keep these leftovers? I don’t want to mess around in database.
