[resolved] Is there a plugin to delete existing spam comment? (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I've had a site up for a while but only recently installed Akismet.

    There's a good 2,000 comments still stuck in there.
    I'm not sure how much of it is spam.

    Is there a plugin I can run through the system to clear out any spam in there?

    Thank you

    My sincere apologies for such a late response.

    I'm just a little worried that this will take out genuine comments too.

    I think I *may* have to do this manually.....I'm going in..............

  4. Go to the Comments section of your admin panel and click the "Check for Spam" button.

    Yep. That was a brilliant find. I clicked it just after I replied here and it did the trick :D

    Thank you

  6. You're welcome!
