Easy to use, does what it says – great for dealing with spammers

Does exactly what it says. No problems.

Dashboard > Settings > Delete Comments
(check) Delete pending comments
(check) Delete spam comments
(check) Delete trash comments
–> Submit


I don’t have comments enabled at all but still get thousands of pending spam comments on all of my sites. Since WordPress only allows deleting 20 at a time, that’s never going to happen without a bulk delete plugin.

Absolutely Perfect!

Just installed it to delete 1,400 spams – and it took care of them in almost less than a second!

You can choose which categories of messages you want to delete, and I chose “pending” and “spam”. They were removed while leaving the approved comments in place.

Thanks so much for making this very useful plugin!


Brilliant! 55,000+ comments of crap gone in less than the who seconds!
