We’ll show you how to delete all Easy Digital Downloads’ reviews in seconds. We’ll do it in three simple steps and with just a few clicks. You don’t need to spend hours and hours trying to delete all the reviews from all the EDD products.
We have to say that it’s not possible to do it with EDD because the bulk actions are too limited, and you can get a lot of server errors because the plugin will try to apply changes to thousands of products at once.
We’ll do it using the Comments and Reviews Spreadsheet. This plugin displays all comments and reviews on a spreadsheet where you can edit values easily as you do with Excel or Google Sheets.
After installing and activating the plugin, open the spreadsheet by going to WP Sheet Editor > Edit Comments.
Now just follow these three simple steps.
Step 1. Open the Bulk Edit tool
This tool simplifies your life by allowing you to edit thousands of comments at once. You just need some seconds and a few clicks.
Open it with one click on Bulk Edit on the toolbar.
Step 2. Filter all the EDD reviews
You need to filter all the Easy Digital Downloads reviews because the spreadsheet will show you all types of comments.
Therefore, you need to open the search tool by choosing the I want to search rows to update option in the Select the rows that you want to update dropdown.
Now, select these options to find all EDD reviews.
- Post type: download
- Comment type: review
- Click on Run search
Step 3. Delete all the EDD reviews at once
After filtering all the download reviews, you need to select these options to delete them all at once.
- Select the rows that you want to update: I want to search rows to update
- What field do you want to edit: Status
- Select type of edit: Set value
- Replace existing value with this value: Delete completely
- Click on Execute now.
With the Comments and Reviews Spreadsheet, you can apply massive changes in seconds to thousands of comments. It’s really easy to use and it allows you to save a lot of time.
