1. Dashboard: Only shows last 5 comments with no filtering options.
Problem: your site is getting spammed so all you see is the last 5 spam post. Even if the spam filter correctly identified the comment as spam, it still shows up on the dashboard. I would like to have the 'spam' filtered from the dashboard.
2. Comment management: Delete is the only action that can be applied to multiple comments. I really would like to mark the spam as smap to multiple comments. I mean, I have pages of spam comments, but I have to mark each comment as spam by itself.
3. Comment Filter: Resets back to 'All' after a comment action has been performed.
situation: you already have pages of 'spam' so you set the filter to 'no spam' so you can see the comments that aren't marked. Unfortunately, there's a bunch more spam. So...
a. you 'mark' a comment as spam. page resets to 'all',
b. you reset back to 'no spam' and
c. goto a
etc. etc. etc.
I know of different spam fighting plugins, which I imagine I will eventuall install. I was trying to train the spam filter first, then I plan on adding the other plugins. I did install the authimage plugin, but I decided to give the filter a chance.
I hope this doesn't sound like a rant. I don't like rants. I just wanted to point out that it would be nicer if
- a. dashboard filtered out comments already marked with spam.
b. marking all 'checked' comments as spam like there is for 'delete'.
