How to Remove the “People Listening” Section from the Livefyre Comment System

We use many different comment systems based on numerous factors and client requests, the one system that we recommend the most is the Livefyre Comment System. We pretty much love everything about this WordPress plugin, however nothing is ever 100% perfect. A few clients in the past who didn’t have a massive amount of readers complained that they didn’t like the “People Listening” section because it always showed a low number of listeners and wanted it removed. So if you’ve been looking for an easy way to remove the “People Listening” section from the Livefyre WordPress Comment Plugin, check out our simple CSS solution.

Modifying and Overriding the Plugin’s Original CSS

Simply add the following line of code to your CSS file.

.fyre .fyre-live-container{ display: none !important; }

PLEASE NOTE: Make sure you have !important to make sure you are overriding the original plugin’s CSS.
