Fast and Efficient WordPress Spam Clearing
If you’re using WordPress most likely you get some spam comments caught by Akismet the infamous spam filter plugin. Sometimes I get a lot of spam and would hate to just go through the whole thing, mostly I could just identify spam by one look! Therefore, I’ve come up with a way to clean spam quickly and efficiently.
I use Firefox but you could do this using other browsers as well. You’ll notice at the end of each spam comment there is a checkbox with “not spam” next to it.
What I do is, I use firefox search for the words “not spam” and it automatically takes me to the end of the first spam entry. With one look I can see if it is spam or not, then I keep my finger on the CTRL button (Command button if you’re on a mac) and press “G” to go to the next item found. This way by pressing “CTRL”/”Command”+G repeatedly I can cycle through the spam comments much faster. If I see a comment which should not be there, I simple tick the check mark and keep going!
