Disabling the comment bubbles in Customizr

Note : the following code snippet requires advanced WordPress developer skills. There's no guarantee that this snippet works as is with the latest version of our themes, and with the latest version of WordPress. That's why you need to always test any code snippets in a staging environment before implementing it in a production site.

UPDATE 22 April 2015: Added filter priority value greater than 10 to ensure compatibility with new Customizr and Customizr-Pro versions.

You might want to disable the red bubble displaying the number of comments, next to post titles.

Here are two snippets to do it :


1) Disabling comment bubbles everywhere

Note: You can disable the comment bubbles, or chose among two different styles, sitewide in Appearance -> Customize -> Content: home, post, grid, … -> Comments

2) Disabling comment bubbles only on home


Where to paste this code? => in your functions.php file. I strongly recommend to create a child theme. Download a start-up child theme here.

    Love the theme so far but still learning a lot! Is it possible to move the comment bubble to always appear at the end of the first line of a heading? A lot of my post headings are longer and go to a second line which causes the bubble to overlap letters from the top line. Please let me know what code I can use to change this. Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for code snippet; I have tried both snippets in the style.css field in my child theme, however the comment bubbles remain.

    I would love some help, if possible? Please go easy on the technical terms…this is new to me!

        Wonderful, thank you so much Nicholas. I reinstalled the child theme and I can now see the functions.php file (I couldn’t before). I must not have installed it correctly initially.

        I love the theme and all the code snippets available, thank you so much!
