    Hi,
    I haven't done anything with my blog for all summer, I want to start it back up, but I have a ton of comments, I want to delete them, most of them are junk, probably spam...is there a way I can delete them all at once? or do I need to do them one at a time, I have about 3000 comments, any suggestion?
    I am not sure what word press I am using don/t know where to look

    I am using Thesis 1.7 by

    Thanks
    Rhea

    Hi,

    Go to the comments edit page. Click on "Screen options" on the top right, set the no. of comments to show and click "Apply". After that, just mass select all those comments and delete 'em.

    Enable Akismet plugin in your WordPress install, then enter your Akismet API key, save it and you're done.
