Editing comments (and posts?) (8 posts)

    I've noticed something very weird about WordPress: it doesn't allow me to edit or delete some older comments (or even articles I think) from the WP interface. As a long time b2 user, in which you could just edit or delete anything you'd like, I'm wondering if this is a bug or a feature. I hate having to go into phpMyAdmin to delete spam or typo's.

    How does it not let you ?
    If it is that a post is not listed, you go through the display options on the edit screen.

    No, the posts are listed alright. It's just that I cannot simply edit or delete older posts, nor can I simply edit or delete comments on older posts. It's very annoying.

    Hmmmm, am I really the only one who has these problems? Or am I the only with posts this old? It's really frustrating to have to go into PhpMyAdmin to edit posts and comments by hand... A blemish on an otherwise perfect system...

    What happen when you click "Edit", or "Delete". Nothing at all? Refresh and throw you back to post list? Try different browsers or computers?

  7. I think you're the only one with that problem. What's your user level? I think you have to be level 10 before you can do any deleting like that.

    Alphaoide: There's not even an Edit or Delete button present!
    Macmanx: My user level is 10, so that shouldn't be the problem.
    I think it could have something to do with the fact that I imported hundreds of posts from my b2 log.
    It wouldn't be too much of a problem if those bloody spammers wouldn't be around. :-S
