  • Hello all,

    I want to view the spams caught by Akismet, I can’t find them in comments link.

    It shows to me that it caught 8 spams but not shown on the comments link.

    I read the instruction and it tells that it will show the spams for us to review in comment link.

    So where are they after all?
    Any problem occur?

    Thanks in advance

    Look in Admin/Comments. At the top of the page, just under Edit Comments, there are links to:

    – All
    – Pending
    – Approved
    – Spam

    Look under Spam.

    Yes, I have checked it a minute ago, and I find one (only one of spam).

    It says that, it caught 12 spams, but only one shown.
    Does it mean that others are surely spam, so it will not let us to review?

    Spam comments are automatically removed from the list after 15 days, if I remember correctly. so I can only assume that the other 11 spam comments were from some time ago.

    I have the same problem, this month my akismet stats say that i’ve had 340 spam detected, 1990 ham detected. Nothing appears under any of the comments tabs in the dash board. Obviously spam is bad, but I thought ham was good, where has it all gone? I certainly haven’t had this many legitimate comments approved.
