Support » Plugin: Flamingo » Good, but badly needs capacity for bulk spam deletion

  • Flamingo is a decent plugin for message storage with CF7 – it does exactly what it advertises. But we all know how pervasive spam can be – and where Flamingo unfortunately falls short of the mark is in handling bulk spam messages. If that were improved this would be a 5-star review.

    You can look through old reviews here and see that the first request for a “delete all spam” button was almost five years ago, but this essential feature is still not built in. A little more support from the developer would turn this from a semi-good plugin to a great one.

    It’s evidently common for users to have long-running sites that have accumulated tens of thousands of spam messages, and the only options to remove them are either manually shifting 20 messages at a time to trash (which does have a delete all button – so the feature is almost implemented already) or directly accessing the site database to bulk delete from there. The latter isn’t something you want to rely upon in a production environment.
