Strange "Ghost" comment on Pages, Not in comment box (5 posts)

    Only on my pages (not my blog posts) I have duplicate entries of a non-existent comment.

    Check it out here:

    This person "Cisco" nor his comment does not show up in my comment box but these comment shows up on all four of my pages, while the functionality of comments on each of my posts works perfectly.

    How do I find/remove these comments? Note again that they DO NOT show up in my comment box.

    jkeagle,

    If you have access to the database then you could locate the specific comment and remove it.

    Which database are you speaking of?

    On my home dashboard where I can select "comments" and it lists all comments, this strange comment is not listed. Only the comments on the posts are listed.

    Is there a separate comment database for the pages that you are referring to?

    jkeagle,

    The mySQL / Plesk database where the tables are stored. This is not accessible from WordPress without a plugin of some sort.

    Try to change in filters.php line 138

    if (current_user_can('edit_post')) {

    to

    if (current_user_can('edit_posts')) {

    Best Regards.
