I’ve this odd problem. I’ve set a captcha to prevent comment spamming, but to no avail, they found a way to get around it somehow. Then I activated the link per post protection and all the spams are now correctly moderated, wheras normal comments are posted right away.
My problem is that I came back to my admin panel today only to discover that 1025 spams were awaiting my approval. Usually I scroll down to the bottom of the page and make a group modification that I later validate.
Usually it works, but not today, since the “moderation.php” file only list 581 comments and not the validation button at the end of the form…
So without validation button and no possibility to make a group modification, I’m left with only one option that I don’t want to get into : erase them thru PhpAdmin…
Only problem is that I’m not so confident to use it, and if I happen to make a mistake, it’ll be made forever.
Any clue on how I could get around this bug that prevent me from loading a “moderation.php” page that list ALL 1025 comments and that should normaly end with the validation button ?
