Author Posts April 27, 2013 at 8:11 am #1247019 tobilobaajayiMember I would like to know if there is a way to read the comments previously marked as spam by ‘askimet’. I have noticed that some genuine comments are being marked as spam. The blog I need help with is tobilobaajayi.wordpress.com.

But… you can view the spam comments (the ones that aren’t considered ‘the worst’ and automatically blocked) at anytime by going to Comments -> Spam which is here https://tobilobaajayi.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit-comments.php?comment_status=spam There is a setting in Settings -> Discussion which automatically discards any spam comment on posts older than 30 days (its in comment moderation). Spam is automatically deleted after 15 days. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/#comment-moderation April 27, 2013 at 8:24 am #1247097 danielisreadingMember Oh and if you notice spam that isn’t spam in the spam folder, then just mark it as not spam, that way Akismet will learn. Same goes for spam in the moderation queue. April 27, 2013 at 9:09 am #1247102 tobilobaajayiMember ok. How do i see comments marked as automatically ‘spam’ less than 15 days ago? They are not in my spam queue Author Posts The topic ‘Reading 'spam' comments.’ is closed to new replies.
