Dashboard: Latest Spam


WordPress 2.5 introduces a widgetized dashboard featuring the latest comments and WordPress news.

This plugin creates a new widget for that dashboard that lists out the latest spam so you can make sure no legitimate comments were falsely marked as spam.

If you have Defensio installed, it will also use that to hide obvious spam comments.

Does this plugin support other languages?

Yes, it does. See the WordPress Codex for details on how to make a translation file. Then just place the translation file, named dashspam-[value in wp-config].mo, into the plugin’s folder.
