You can remove a comment from a post by recycling it. To recycle a comment, simply click on the corresponding Recycle button.
When a comment is "recycled", it is not deleted immediately. On the contrary, it is temporarily placed in the Recycle Bin, which is useful for 1-click spam moderation.
In case of a mistake, a comment can be taken out of the Recycle Bin and restored back. To do this, follow the steps below:
From the comments list, click on the Open Recycle Bin button
The recycle bin shows all comments that were previously recycled. Locate the comment/s that you want to restore and select them by ticking the checkbox on the panel header.
Select the desired Visibility Status to restore the comments to and click on it.
You can also restore individual recycled comments by raising its Visibility Status.
- The recycle bin can be emptied by administrators with appropriate permission.
- There is also a Scheduled Task that automatically purges the recycle bin at regular intervals.
