I want to "undo" a deleted comment on one of my posts - it was dark and I hit the "delete" by accident when I wanted to hit the Edit Comment.

How do I undo it?

If you just hit delete on the comment then all deleted comments are held in the "Trash" for 30 days or until you empty that folder.

Just got to comments and look under the "Trash" tab to find your deleted comments. You'll be able to do two things - 'delete permanently' or 'restore' comment which is what you're looking to do.

Thanks Jay - where do I find the "Trash" bin in WA?

This is not the same "trash" as the Recycle Bin on your computer, that I know.

It's in your WordPress dashboard. Under Comments.

Did you delete the comment on Wealthy Affiliate while using Site Comments? If this is the case then I'm not sure what you can do. Not sure if it could be recovered.

Unfortunately, you cannot retrieve a deleted comment within the platform. I'm saying this from experience.
About a month ago, I accidentally clicked delete instead of edit when I wanted to correct a small grammatical error.
When I couldn't find a solution within the platform, I sent an email to Kyle and he responded saying unfortunately once it's been deleted it's gone, it cannot be retrieved.

No, the comment was on a WA post - NOT on my website in the WordPress back office.

Oops. Not sure you can. It will be interesting to see if you are able.

It looks as though Jay solved your challenge, even though it was trashed, the trash continer was not emptied yet!

At least it was not anything to serious!

Have a great week Kaju!
