WordPress Plugin to Delete ALL Spam Comments in One Click

spam-big-1

Have you ever had a site overrun by spam, even when you’ve turned comments completely off? Maybe it’s a site you don’t visit often or an old site you want to get back to. Or maybe it’s a client’s site that doesn’t get much attention on the back end.

In some cases you may have hundreds or even thousands of spam comments to delete.

If you’ve ever experienced this, then the Delete Pending Comments plugin is for you.

How It Works

After activating the plugin, just click “Delete Pending Comments” under the Comments section in your Admin area.

Once on the plugin’s page, you will see a very simple form.

Simply copy the sentence, “I am sure I want to delete all pending comments and realize this can’t be undone,” paste it into the box, and then hit Delete Pending Comments.

Voila! All spam comments are gone, even if you have thousands of them.

You can download the Delete Pending Comments plugin here.

  1. I could have done with this on a blog a few months ago but will keep a note of it. As it doesn’t future-proof against more spam though it would be worth installing a plugin like GASP (Growmap antispam) to ensure no more automated spam comments can be made or the problem will just return.

    Imho GASP seems to be 100% effective against spambots though you still need Akismet etc (or use this plugin) to combat any human spam.

  2. Bundle of thanks. Really I have more than twenty thousand comments, and I was too worried what to do with it.Your post has helped me to such extent that I can’t even tell you. Wonderful it was really a deletion in just one click. Now I am not only spam free, but tension free too.
