    How to delete comments

    Greetings all,

    It isn't clear to me how to delete a comment if it turns out to be spam.  I see that comments can be closed for a post but I don't see how they can be deleted. Sorry if I'm missing something obvious-- can someone let me know how to do this please?

    Hi North,

    You probably found this by now, but want to get some Karma! ;)

    You can simply go into the Content section http://yourcms/umbraco/#content, then select the comments tab (making sure you're on the root folder of the content section), and use the check box to select the comment to be removed, then click delete.

    Cheers Steven.

    I didn't have this tab on the dashboard because it was missing from the Dashboard.config file.

    Added it in with:

    <section alias="Comments">
        <tab caption="Comments">

    This displayed the comment moderation section, but I wasn't able to delete comments until I had edited the \usercontrols\blog4umbraco\commentmoderation.ascx as per the instructions here:

    All working now.
