    Someone is talking to themselves on my blog and leaving lots of comments. I don’t have a problem with that. I find it quiet entertaining and wonder if they know I can view all IP numbers and their many names can’t fool me. lol But when I want to see all comments, I can only view the 20 most recent. And I don’t have comment moderation anymore.

    I don’t have an answer, since I have the same question.

    How do you view IP numbers?

    Greets:

    For the most part, we’re stuck at viewing twenty. You should be getting an email though when you receive a comment or trackback though. It contains all of the details.

    Another thing you can do is list your Posts via Dashboard -> Manage -> Posts as there is a column there that tells you which Posts have comments attached. It’s not all of them but it’s better than nothing. :)

    IP address should be listed on the first line of the comment when you look at Dashboard -> Manage -> Comments. The line is the commenter’s name or page title of the trackback, email address, their website or page they are linking to you from and then the IP address.

    *sigh* Don’t we all.

    That’s probably the best way to double check things though.

    I never had a “big” spam problem until two things happened.
    (1) I left a comment on a blog saying words to the effect that I thought couch potato sports fans and their shop-a-holic girlfriends/wives would be healthier and society would be better served if they got off their butts and actually participated in a sport. (Apparently I gored someone’s obese sacred cow.) ROFLMBO
    (2)My second blog with 18 posts and 49 comments http://bloggersblurt.wordpress.com made it onto the 100 growing blogs list.
    Then the spamming picked up.
    BTW how do we find the url for the growing blog list please?

    botd = blog of the day

    I do hope from reading your point #1 there that you’re not calling comments that you just don’t want “spam”? That kind of mucks things up in teh system I would think.

    As a journalist I have been prepared to deal with people who have differing viewpoints than my own. I think you misunderstood the way I expressed myself. Sorry for not stating that more clearly. What I meant was that I left comment (1) above on a friend’s blog. She was not offended by it and we had a humorous exchange about it. However, some gutless wonder, who did not comment but disliked what I said on my friends blog then spammed me with sports advertising. P.S. No need to reply – get your tickets done.:) Yippee – Yahoo it’s Friday. Can’t you tell, eh?

    I wish there was a MORE button on the Comments Moderation page, because I got more than twenty comments yesterday, and I’m going to have to root through the whole darn blog to find them all. Very annoying.

    Why isn’t there a MORE button? Seems very basic to me.

    There is the option to get an email when a comment is left on your blog. That’s pretty much how I keep track of mine.

    You can subscribing to the RSS comments feed for your blog might help. It’s URL is blog.wordpress.com/comments/feed (http://engtech.wordpress.com/comments/feed)

    The only problem is that it is limited to 20 comments, because the RSS feed only publishes the last 20 comments.

    So really, not that useful.

    A bit off-topic:

    Code it then and submit it to trac. :)

    drm: do they often accept code from outside contributors for WP MU features that will make it in to wordpress.com?
