[resolved] Can't edit or delete spam comment (7 posts)

    Just launched first WordPress site and got a comment that doesn't show in the administration nor does it show in the database.

    It's the first comment @ http://laptopia.co.uk/?p=354

    As admin there is no edit comment link and the reply link doesn't function as well.

    Any ideas on how to remove this?

    Thank you in advance, your time & effort is appreciated!

    Hmmm looking into it... looks like the user name of the tweeter account!

    It is the twitter link... How as I've not made the tweet? :S

  3. That looks like it was brought in from Twitter. Are you using any plugins to include twitter tweets in your comments?

    Have these two activated:

    Share Google , twitter , facebook and social sharing
    &
    WordSocial

    Thought they are one way only - posts from the site, not either direction?

    *** Update: Wordsocial is linked in with Twitter.

  5. Yeah, those'd be it, I think. Check those plugins and make sure they don't include a bit where they insert tweets as comments.

    Not sure how its happened, but it is a link from Twitter...

    Strange how it can't be edited or deleted.

    Anyway, glad its not spam :)

    Cheers Ipstenu!
