An anti-social social extension to hide commenting systems like Disqus, Livefyre, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, YouTube, etc.
Hide various commenting systems, including (but not limited to) Disqus, Livefyre, WordPress, Reddit, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, various news sites and forums, etc.
It's triggered when the page is first loaded, or the URL changes (you click a link), or the comments are injected into the page (Disqus and YouTube delay loading comments), or when you open the popup (via the extension icon in the toolbar) and choose to toggle a page or whitelist (allow) a new URL.
The extension checks whether the loaded URL should block comments, then unblocks those URLs that match any regex patterns you've specified on the "options" page.
You can quickly add the URL of the current page by opening the extension popup (by clicking the icon in the toolbar), and then selecting a URL (or entering a custom one) and pressing the "Allow" button. Note that, unlike the "options" page, these URLs are entered normally and not as regular expressions.
Click on the icon in the toolbar and press the large "toggle" button to temporarily toggle enabling/disabling the extension for a single tab.
You'll be notified that it can "read and change all your data on the websites you visit" because that's how it works - it hides certain comment-related elements on the page so you don't see them.
It also uses storage to save its state, but it shouldn't prompt you for that.
If you notice a commenting system that could be added (blocked), open an issue (see "support" link). Include the website where you noticed it, and I'll try to follow-up as time permits.
Additionally, if you're comfortable with regex and html/css, you could just create a pull request against the file that defines which sites and html elements are blocked, here: https://github.com/grantwinney/hide-comments-in-chrome-sites/blob/master/sites.json
Have a question, comment or request?
Open a new issue (see "support" link) with as many details as possible. The more you let me know upfront, the less I'll have to ask later!
