WordPress: Remove Spam and Pending Comments In Seconds

How I was able to go into WordPress: Remove

Spam and Pending Comments In Seconds

 

 

I was just sitting here cleaning up the comments as I do every now and then.

 

I’m sure some of you with WordPress blogs run into this issue too.

 

Even though I have spam control, filters, and plugins on my site; I still get lots of spam.  

 

So if you have any tips that I need to hear, I’m all ears!

 

I looked at the comments already and deleted a ton of them.

 

It’s down to only 28 comments now, but at times, there are 100’s.  

 

I find out which ones are not spam, and approve them.  The rest you want to remove spam and pending comments.

 

I found this awesome plugin called “Delete Pending Comments” by Nicholas Kuttler 

 

I begin by going to the pending comments, next to it you will see delete pending.

 

All I do is click on that and then it’s going to have me type a sentence giving permission to delete the pending comments.  

 

I highlight it and then paste it.    And click on “delete pending” 

 

It asks one last time if I am sure I want to delete?

 

It wants to make sure you don’t get rid of your comments accidently.

 

So we respond, “Yes, I’m going to delete comments”.

 

As you can see,  the comments are gone!

 

Summary:   I went through again to see if anything looked pertinent and good,  and kept those.

I deleted all the rest.

 

That is how I was able to save time in WordPress: Remove Spam and Pending Comments In Seconds

    Hi Leslie,

    Thank you and I don’t seem to have much problem with spam.

    I do have Askismet on my site, maybe thats why.

    I have to admit though I have a lot to learn about this, so maybe Im not seeing my spam.

    I will go and look though.

    Thank you,

    Di
