How To Trash All Comments? (6 posts)

    I've got over 10,000 spammed comments in my WordPress site. Not sure if it is the default setting or not, but I can remove only 20 comments at a time. Can anyone tell me how to move all of the 10,000 spammed comments to trash.

    Once in the trash folder, I can empty that en mass.

    Would also love to know how I can turn the comments feature off as a way to prevent the build up of spammed comments. Thanks.

    Seacoast Web Design,

    I reset the number of visible comments from 20 to the maximum of 999. When I did that, I was no longer able to delete comment in bulk of 999 by checking the sole box at Author. Hmm. Don't know why.
