Disable Social Share Icons for Articles Helix 3 using News365 Template

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I want to completely remove the Social Sharing Icons from this template. I have commented out the relevant PHP code from the share.php file located here:

public_html/templates/shaper_news365/html/layouts/joomla/content/social_share/share.php

Unfortunately, the icons are still showing.

I am able to hide the icons by using following custom css: .helix-article-social-share {display:none; visibility: hidden;
}

I have also set the Enable Social Share to NO in the Blog settings of the Helix3 Framework.

After doing all of the above, however, the code is still on the page and it is causing a bit of slow down in page load.

Where do you suggest I look next to get rid of that code entirely from the page?

Not sure if it means anything but I am using JCH Optimize plugin. Perhaps that is causing the issue?

Here is a sample URL. I have the icons hidden via CSS but the code is still there:
https://www.wrmea.org/israel/palestine/israels-retreat-from-democracy-creating-widening-division-with-american-jews.html

Hi,
Thanks for your query. Please goto this file location /templates/shaper_news365/html/layouts/joomla/content/info_block/social_block.php
Then just rename the social_block.php file and that should remove the social share options permanently.

-Best Regards
