I am modifying my embed-content.php. I find the functions here to remove some oembed icons but not the share icon. I do not find a function to remove JUST the share icon on wordpress oembeds. Can anyone help?

This has been answered here: Removing WordPress Icon from oembed link footer .

From the answer to that question:

Here's the code to remove the site icon markup from embeds:

add_filter('get_site_icon_url','__return_false', 10, 3);

If you want to remove the entire site-icon + site-title then use this:


The right thing to do though would be to upload your own site-icon in the WordPress customizer and show-off your branding. Min image size it needs is 512px.

  • None of that addresses only removing the SHARE icon. I want to keep the site title and site icon. I ONLY want to remove the share icon. Thanks! :)
