Support » Plugins and Hacks » Moderate more than 20 Comments?

  • I have neglected a few blogs on mine, and i have thousands of comments in moderation…

    With 2.7 you don’t have the option to decide how many comments you want to moderate at a time (unless I missed it? In previous versions you could display 100+)

    So in 2.7 I’m stuck moderating 20 at a time… this will literally take me hours. Is there a plugin, hack, or something else where I can moderate more than 20 comments per page?

    Edit: I do not want to delete them via the database as there are actual comments I want to approve. Most are spam.

    I’d like to select as many as possible for deletion, scan them, and then delete.

  • That’s quite easy actually:
    If you do have access to your files, go to /wp-admin/, and open edit-comments.php with any text editor. [don’t forget to keep the original copy – if anything goes wrong]

    Line 185 should look like this:
    $comments_per_page = apply_filters('comments_per_page', 20, $comment_status);

    The number 20 defines the filter on the page. Replace it with the number of comments u’d like to display, and upload ur new file over the old one.

    Remember not to go to high with tha number of comments to show, to prevent overload.

    Goodluck!
