I may have an older version of, so for me, I accessed Spam like this:

  • Go to Dashboard
  • Scroll down to ‘Recent Comments’
  • Scroll to the bottom of that section and find ‘Spam’ (third item in the row at the bottom)
  • Select and mark appropriate comments as ‘not spam’

    • I wish everyone would use WordPress. I like to poke people when I visit without the need for a full-blown comment. Blogger doesn’t allow that. I am around your blog much more than it looks like from my comments, Ken.


  2. I didn’t know there was a new WP. Every so often I go to my Comments section [click 2/3 down on the side of the dashboard page]. At the top I see how many comments in all, the ones pending, the one approved, and the ones on spam. I just click on the section I want to check.
