Ran across something a bit odd that I haven't seen before. A client has a pretty active blog and uses Akismet (paid) to protect against spam. At least once a day, they're reporting a spam comment that is correctly marked as spam, but cannot be removed from the admin dashboard by clicking
Empty Spam or manually selecting the entry and trying to delete it.
I looked into this and noticed that the DB entry has a
0, which I'd have to assume means it is not attached to any post. I can obviously remove them manual from the DB (and it works just fine), but haven't found any information on what this could be.
I've replaced the core WP files (thinking it might be a security issue) and also re-generated the salts/keys in the
wp-config.php file without any change.
Any thoughts would be a huge help. thanks!
While this may have stemmed from, I'm not sure if it is the result of the InMotion hack.
Here's what's been done:
- Changed FTP, MySQL passwords
- Created new DB user, assigned to database
- Updated salts/keys in
- Changed all WP user passwords
- Re-installed core WordPress files
Akismet is out of ideas on this one (don't blame them) as this one is persistent.
