If you don’t want to receive comments anymore on your WordPress posts, you may want to delete the ones that are with status “pending”.
Of course, you may have already disabled post comments. But you want to delete all pending comments and reviews so that your server works better.
However, you know that can be really tedious because you’d have to spend a lot of hours finding, selecting and deleting all the pending comments. And time is what you don’t want to lose.
That’s why we’ve come up with a great solution to that dilemma. We’ve created the Comments and Reviews Spreadsheet, which allows you to edit thousands of comments, reviews, testimonials, etc., using an intuitive spreadsheet.
This plugin helps you save a lot of time and avoids server errors because it applies massive changes in batches.
Once installed and activated, you can open the spreadsheet by going to WP Sheet Editor > Edit Comments. You’ll see all your comments and reviews displayed on it.
Just follow these steps to delete all post comments.
Step 1. Open the “Bulk Edit” tool
For this, you need to open the Bulk Edit tool. This tool allows you to save a lot of time editing thousands of items at once.
Step 2. Filter all the pending post comments
Now select I want to search rows to update to open the Search tool.
To filter all the pending post comments, you need to select these values in the Search tool:
- Post type: Post
- Comment Status: Pending
- Comment type: Comment
- Once you select these values, just click on Run search to filter all the pending post comments.
Step 3. Delete all the filtered comments
Now you need to select these values to delete all the selected comments:
- 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 to delete all the pending post comments.
It’s really simple and fast. You can save a lot of time.
You don’t have to spend lots of hours anymore. You can edit thousands of comments, reviews, testimonials, etc. Of course, this is not the only change you can apply; the Comments and Reviews Spreadsheet simplifies your life completely.
