Support » Fixing WordPress » How to unapprove comment after deleting

  • Hi all,

    I apologise for a rather noobish first comment.

    I received a comment on a blog post that I have just become an administrator of. I want to remove this post so I looked into the approved comments section, moved the post to the trash then permanently deleted it.

    I now realise that I should have “unapproved” the comment first to actually remove it.

    Is there any way of removing the comment now that I have deleted it from the back-end?

    I think you just have a cache problem. Any comment marked trash or spam should be removed from the post thread.

    Ok, I’ve cleared my chache but nothing seems to happen.

    I didn’t actually mark it anything. I just ticked the box next to it, selected move to trash then went into trash and clicked the box to permanently delete

    Please post a url.

    Try a different browser to ensure that it’s not a cache issue.

    If it’s still visible, there could be several causes. As kmessinger stated, please post the link.
