Support » Fixing WordPress » Phantom Comments? How to deal with?

  • I keep getting emails about comments needing moderating with links for approval, trashing, spamming – you know the emails?

    But whatever I go to do I get the information there’s no such comments. There are no comments awaiting processing whatever.

    any help for this?

  • Would you be able to copy one of the emails you’re getting so we can see what it is saying? It’s coming directly from WordPress and not a plugin you have installed?

    Hi, yes, here’s the email. Something called Jboss wouldn’t let me get it into print format but here’s a cut and paste of the screen:
