Deleting Akismet Spam (3 posts)

    I upgraded a few days ago both my WordPress version and my Akismet version. No comments were showing for moderation. Thank you to I'm not sure whom who gave step-by-step directions on how to do it. I knew nothing about mysql databases or php, and still don't, but finally figured it out.

    However, I still can't get rid of the spam. There are 56 comments marked as spam and growing by the hour. I can do it manually if I go into the database now that I know how, but I would like for it work on my Admin panel. Anyone have a fix.

    All that happens is that once the delete key is hit, the screen goes blank for a minute and the admin screen comes back with all the spam still there.

    I'm having this exact same problem since upgrading this morning to version 2.1.7. The spam comments remain even after selecting delete.

    I've tried in both IE7 and FF3.

    Having the same problem myself. How do you delete them manually?

    Thanks
