Approved Comments will not delete

  1. I deleted some old entries because I wanted to start fresh. However, there are still 27 "approved comments" that will not delete. I click the X , try moving them to trash, but nothing works.

    The blog I need help with is panscloset.wordpress.com.

  2. Are there any updates? :)

  3. Were the comments imported into the blog from another blogging platform?

  4. You ought to be able to quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk. Comments are not deleted separately. Delete posts and pages and the comments are automatically deleted with them.

  5. P.S. I tagged this thread for a Staff follow-up. Subscribe to it so your are notified when they respond.

  6. Thank you for the reply! I have tried bullk deleting them and deleting them individually. They were imported from an external source along with the journal entries. I have deleted the entries, but these 27 comments remain.

  7. There can sometimes be issues removing comments on imported posts. If you provide links to the 27 comments you want to delete, we can take care of it for you.

  8. Yes, those are the right links! I've deleted those two comments for you - please let me know if you still see them, and feel free to send over the remaining links.

  9. Thanks! What you did worked! Here are the others, think I have them all but I will let you know when these disappear

  10. Glad that worked! I think I got them all - could you please have a look and let me know if there are any others? Thanks.

  11. And on a side note, I have a business that I have registered the website, Twitter, and ebay for, "Apothecarius" but on WordPress this name is reserved, but there is no blog. Is there any way that you could look into seeing if I can register this name? (Thanks again for all your help!)

  12. I've deleted the last two comments for you.

    About the reserved name - unfortunately we wouldn't be able to assign you another person's reserved blog name. We reserve all usernames in case folks one day do want to set up their blog, it'll be ready and waiting for them. Hope you understand!

  13. Oh, I see, so someone has an account but not a blog. I do understand. Well, thank you so much for all of your help! All of the comments have been removed. I hope that you have a great day!!

  14. My pleasure, happy blogging!
