Undeletable spam comments (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm an admin of a blog site.
    We're having a little problem with the spammers!
    Mostly it's ok and I'll just sit and delete the spam, however, there is special spam which will not be deleted or moved to the trash or approved or anything!!

    The messages have no tick box next to them and thus cannot be selected either individually or in a 'select all' movement. The only common factor I can find which diferentiates them from the deletable comments is that the 'special spam' have no IP addresses.

    I've currently got 134 pending comments (7 pages!!) which are all these undeletables!

    Has anybody come up against this or have a method to tackle it?

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    The most radical way to remove them is to connect to your Database server, then identify the SPAM, then delete them all at a time.

    Additionaly, protect your WordPress blog with AKISMET and BAD BEHAVIOR plugins.
