Support » Fixing WordPress » Redundant Wording Regarding Comments on Footer Widgets

    Hi,

    After upgrading to the latest version of WordPress, 4.2.1, I noticed that my footer widgets now display redundant text.

    For example, they used to display the post name and an excerpt, along with the number of comments (or say “no comments” if no comments yet).

    Now each post displays a title, an excerpt, AND a line that says something like, “2 Comments on Example Post Title.”

    So the footer widgets now look like this:

    This Is the Name of My Post
    2 Comments on This Is the Name of My Post
    This is the excerpt from that post…

    I want it to revert back to:

    This Is the Name of My Post
    2 Comments
    This is the excerpt from that post…

    In other words, it used to just say “2 comments.” Now it displays the comment count and the full title of the post again, which is clearly silly looking.

    I’m not sure how upgrading WordPress would cause this to happen since it’s a theme-related issue, I would guess?

    But if anyone knows how to fix it so it just shows the comment count as opposed to the comment count AND the entire title of the post again, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    What theme are you using?

    A theme called Exciter 2.4.

    It appears that the meta block portion of the code is what causes it, though when I removed it nothing seemed to change, and I even tried flushing my cache and using different browsers.

    I also noticed that WordPress removed the title meta data from hyperlinks, any idea why?

    Thanks.

    Strange. Might be worth checking in with the theme developer here: http://www.bricktheme.com/submit-ticket/

    Not really sure why it’s doing that, and as it’s a paid theme I can’t see the code 🙁
