How To Remove Pending Comments In Seconds In WordPress

WordPress: Remove Spam and Pending Comments In Seconds

If you have a WordPress blog, you may run into this issue too. If you spend 30-40 minutes our more sifting through your website comments, cherry-picking the real comments from spam; and then deleting hundreds and hundreds of spam comments one by one; you're going to love this plug-in!

Even though I have a spam filter; I still receive lots of spam comments. After all, if you allow comments, you are going to get spam!

Before I created this video, I saved some of the comments and deleted hundreds of pending comments that looked like spam.

You will see in the video what a huge time-saver this plugin is.  

Awesome plugin, "Delete Pending Comments" by Nicholas Kuttler has been.

Once installed, on the left side of your dashboard you will see the number of pending comments, next to these the plugin will ask if you want to delete the pending comments.

Click on it; it will ask you to confirm and give permission to delete the pending comments.

I highlight and paste it, and click on "delete pending" it asks one last time if you are sure you want to delete?

And in one final click of the button, all the comments are gone!

That is how I was able to save time in WordPress using this plugin to 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,
