    Kevin thanx for this!

    I would like to know if I want it to remove more columns on different parts of the admin area (pages, media, posts) how I would do this? Is there a simple example you could share?

    • Hi Enix,
      Well if you look on line 3 of the code you will see the name ‘comments’ change that to the name of other columns and it will remove them. However you can also remove multiple by just adding more of the same eg:


      I did not test all these names however they should work for you.
      cb, title, author, categories, tags, comments, date

        @wpsnipp:disqus ,

        thank you, after my first reply I tried it as following and this works fine:

        function remove_pages_count_columns($defaults) {  unset($defaults[‘comments’]);  return $defaults;}add_filter(‘manage_pages_columns’, ‘remove_pages_count_columns’);function remove_media_count_columns($defaults) {  unset($defaults[‘comments’]);  unset($defaults[‘author’]);  unset($defaults[‘date’]);  return $defaults;}add_filter(‘manage_media_columns’, ‘remove_media_count_columns’);

        Again thank you for your work, alot of snippets are very handy! :)
