Comments in admin are empty but I receive email notifications (4 posts)

    Every day I receive at least 20 email notifications from my WP admin telling me that a comment has been made on a post. It tells me what post the comment was made on but the actual comment is not shown. If I try to approve, trash or view the comment anyway & click the link providing in the email notification I am taken to my WP admin - comment, but there it sais there are no comments.

    I can't understand why this is. I've now receive well over 100 email notifications of comments, but my WP admin is telling me there are no comment. Can anyway tell me why this might be or what could be causing it? I've already tried disactivating all plugins but that didn't help.

    those are probably spam.

    try using a plugin like this and see if it helps:

    - Akismat that comes with the WP download
    - Cookies for comments

    I'm having a similar problem. Old comments no longer visible, new comments can't be posted (by me, or others who have tried and told me). I have got email notifications, but comment is blank, other info is blank. When I go to Dashboard, no comments to approve. 'No comments found'. Under 'Approved', none.
