I used help from here to force all comments to Moderation first, great, and thanks! But now when I visit the Comments tab, I always have like 300 spam waiting for me to either mark as Spam or Delete. There does not seem to be a Select All, so I've been moving to spam each one. The Delete option has the usual do-you-really-want-to-do-this popup, making that a two step choice. I did a SS search and a web search but can't find anyone complaining about this! <g>

Currently no way to select all via the cms. Sounds like this would be a useful feature though.

The quickest way is to interact straight with the database (or you could write your own function). If you have PHPmyadmin installed on your webhost just login to that and 'Empty' the 'PageComment' table - this will remove all the comments from your site.

How is possible to add this feature?
