Remove a comment from your wordpress blog

I’ve been asked by a couple of people how to remove comments from their blogs.  This is what I told them;

1. login to dashboard
2. click on comments (there are two places you can click, see pic)

Click on comments

3. hover the mouse over the comment you want to remove.  Some options will appear. Clicking on ‘unapprove’ will make it invisible to visitors but leave it in your dashboard, ‘trash’ will remove it completely.

Click trash to delete

That’s the technical aspect taken care of.  The reasons for removing a comment or not are too numerous to list here.
