Quick Cache (Speed Without Compromise)
Since Update, Can't Delete Spam Comments w/ "Empty Spam" Button (6 posts)

    I updated to the new version of Quick Cache maybe 24 hours ago, and since then I haven't been able to empty my spam comment folder using the "Empty Spam" button. I press it, wait...and it times out.

    I can delete spam comments one at a time, and I can delete them in batches of 20 (by selecting everything on the page, choosing "delete permanently," and clicking "apply"). But deleting more than a certain number with the "one at a time" method gives me a 503 error, and deleting in batches of 20 takes a weirdly long time (like a full minute each time) and sometimes gives me a 500 error.

    (And, with both of the last two methods, I typically get notifications that say things like "Quick Cache: detected changes. Found cache files for Post ID: 30674 (auto-purging).")

    Has anyone else encountered problems deleting spam comments since the update? Any advice?

    Thanks,
    Nancy

    Just updated to v131127, but still having the same issues deleting spam comments.

    Just updated to v131128, and one thing is different:

    I hit "Empty Spam" and wait a bit, and get a message that says "592 comments permanently deleted," but the total number of spam comments only goes down from 592 to 591.

    I try again and same thing: "591 comments permanently deleted," but the total is now just 590.

    So the button is working now, but only clearing out one spam comment at a time, which is interesting.

    More info:

    I whittled the spam comments down to 5 (manually) and hit "empty spam," and it worked -- all five were gone.

    Anything I tried in the 100+ range didn't work, though.

    Just revered to the old/stable version (111203) of the plugin.

    The new versions were causing too many problems (there were others beyond the spam issue) and I wasn't getting any support here at the support forum, so this was the simplest fix.

    @Nancy's Baby Names I apologize for all the trouble! There were a few rocky updates as this plugin had not been updated in over two years. However, the latest version (v131206) contains many fixes and better compatibility-checking. See also: http://wordpress.org/plugins/quick-cache/changelog/

    Could you please give that a shot and let me know if you're still having trouble? Thanks so much!
