Hi to all
I have to remove a lot of comments of articles from my ojs installation
(more or less 55000)
I see that there is a table "tblcomments" in the database
I think to remove all the rows from that table.
Is there some other things I should do or that is enough?

My installation is ojs 1.1.8 ( I know that there is the 2.2, and I use it for other journal, but this journal is still the old version)

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi Daniela,

Yes, tblcomments is where these are stored. Unfortunately, we've heard reports that OJS's comments features attract spam auto-posters. The current release (OJS 2.2) supports CAPTCHA testing for user registration and comment posting in order to address this. For an OJS 1.x installation, your best bet is simply to disable the comments feature.
