Bulk Remove All Pending WordPress Comments

A WordPress site that has not been managed can quickly become like an overgrown garden, heavily spammed with an overwhelming number of comments to be deleted. Clearing out all the pending comments can be a time-consuming task, because WordPress doesn’t provide an easy way to handle them all at once.

That’s where the Bulk Comment Remove plugin comes in very handy. I tested it today to remove 675 comments on a personal site I had neglected.

The Bulk Comment Remove plugin enabled me to delete all pending comments with just one click. Download it today to give yourself a fresh start.

    Sure it does. As M.K. Safi writes, check your Screen Options to set the comments per page to a nice high number, then select all, then use the Trash bulk action. Works pretty much the same way as Gmail or any other decent app UI.
