1785 comment spams is too many for me to page through and delete, how can i get rid of them? (Akismet is a spam filter)
- I found a button [Check Spam] which cleared around half of them…
- Aha – google has found mehttps://wordpress.org/support/topic/moderate-more-than-20-comments which says:,go to /wp-admin/, and open edit-comments.php with any text editor …Line 185 should look like this:
$comments_per_page = apply_filters('comments_per_page', 20, $comment_status);The number 20 defines the filter on the page. Replace it with the number of comments u’d like to display, and upload ur new file over the old one.
- Hm, a bit scary editing the WP files, is there a plugin?
- NO, that doesn’t work any more….
- https://wordpress.org/support/topic/need-to-view-more-than-20-comments-per-page-in-admin?replies=2 click the ‘screen options’ tab near the top right of the dashboard – comments pagethen set the ‘show on screen’ number of comments
