well, it is a neglected blog... got over 3000 spam comments in pending over the last year. went to control panel to just shut off comments and found that "settings" altogether is gone from the left hand. it is just(from top to bottom): dashboard, posts, media, comments, profile and tools.
I guess I was hacked?
Also, is there any way I can delete all 3000 pending spam comments in one click? Many thanks!
