How to add Delete and Spam Actions

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to add the delete and spam links with your comments? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to display the delete and spam links with comments in WordPress. These links will appear to those users who have the access or permission to edit comments on your website like the admin user.

Instructions:

All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

function delete_comment_link($id) {
  if (current_user_can('edit_post')) {
    echo '| <a href="'.admin_url("comment.php?action=cdc&c=$id").'">del</a> ';
    echo '| <a href="'.admin_url("comment.php?action=cdc&dt=spam&c=$id").'">spam</a>';
  }
}

Add this code to your theme’s comments.php file where you want to show the delete and spam links.

<?
           delete_comment_link(get_comment_ID());
?>

Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly add code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
