    I would like to delete all the comments that have accumulated on my dashboard that I have already approved and are on my blog in comments. Can these be deleted or sent to trash from the dashboard so as not to clog things up with all the comments WITHOUT the comments vanishing from my blog posts?

    The blog I need help with is



    No, the act of deleting them removes them from your blog posts.


    Thank you for your quick reply jennifer! One more question? Aren’t all those comments going to clog up the works behind the scenes and take up valuable space. I want them out of there since they are already on my blog and I can, everybody can read them there.



    Again, no. Approved comments may take up space, but it doesn’t count against you and they don’t clog up the works. It’s really not a concern.

    Spam comments are automatically deleted after 2 weeks, however, you have the choice of reviewing them and deleting them sooner if you wish.


    Ok! Thank you so much. Clogging up the works and slowing down things was the issue for me. I did not know about spam comments so that is something learned today too. Thank you again for the help and the quick response. WordPress is new to me and I am just trying to figure it out. It is also a wonderful place to blog!
