How can one remove orphaned webparts in sharepoint 2013 after a migration from MOSS 2007 to SP 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Generally before you do an attach detach database migration from MOSS 2007 to SP2010 to Sp2013. One of the first steps, is to get rid of all the webparts on MOSS2007 that are not compatible in SharePoint 2013.

    This was not done. now after the migration all the old webparts are showing up as missing webparts when you run the following powershell script. 

    Test-SPContentDatabase -Name "name of content database" -url "url"

    I was hoping some one here knows how to get rid of these orphaned webparts. or if some one has a power-shell script to get rid of all these webparts throughout the farm.

    thank you
