How to Delete All Comments in WordPress

Table of Contents

As a website owner, comments are an important part of your site. They allow users to provide feedback and interact with other readers. However, over time, comments can become outdated or irrelevant. In these cases, it may be necessary to delete all of the comments from your WordPress site. Fortunately, WordPress makes this process relatively easy and efficient.

Step 1: Log into Your WordPress Dashboard

The first step is to log into your WordPress dashboard. Once you’re inside the dashboard, navigate to the “Comments” section on the left-hand side of the screen. This is where you will find all of your comments.

Step 2: Select “Bulk Actions”

Once you’re in the “Comments” section of your dashboard, select “Bulk Actions” from the dropdown menu at the top. Then select “Delete Permanently” from the list of options that appears beneath it. This will delete all of the comments on your page, so make sure that this is what you want before clicking “Apply” at the bottom right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Confirm Your Changes

Before deleting all of your comments, WordPress will prompt you to confirm that this is indeed what you wish to do. Click on “Confirm Deletion” if this is indeed what you want to do; if not, click on “Cancel Deletion” and no changes will be made. If you choose to go ahead with deletion, then all of your comments will be permanently deleted and cannot be recovered once they are gone.


Deleting all comments in WordPress is a quick and easy process that can help keep your website looking fresh and up-to-date for visitors and potential customers alike! The three steps listed above should give any website owner a good idea on how to quickly delete their entire comment history from their page – just make sure to double check that this is indeed what you want before clicking confirm!
