This code snippet goes in a core functionality plugin or Code Snippets.

add_filter( 'shared_counts_load_css', '__return_false' );

Make sure you include your own styling for the Shared Counts buttons in your theme’s stylesheet.

Disable JavaScript

Shared Counts includes a JavaScript file for the following functionality:

  • Open, close, and submission of the “Share by Email” modal
  • Google Analytics social tracking, allowing you to see when people interact with your sharing buttons
  • Optimize the size of the new windows opened when clicking a share button

You can disable our JavaScript file with the following code:

This code snippet goes in a core functionality plugin or Code Snippets.

add_filter( 'shared_counts_load_js', '__return_false' );

Make sure you account for the lost functionality in your own theme’s JavaScript file. For instance, if you use the Email sharing icon, you will need to manually implement the email sharing modal.
