Can I disable link hover preview in the Comments dashboard?

  1. I'm not sure if this just started or if I never noticed it before, but if I move my mouse over the homepage of somebody that left me a comment, in my blog Dashboard under 'Comments', a little preview of their homepage appears in a popup box within the dashboard page.

    This is really annoying, because I can't really see anything relevant, and I just want to be able to click on the link without bothering with a preview, but I can't see a way to disable the previews. Can anybody help?

    The blog I need help with is kelworthfiles.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi. Are you talking about the Gravatar Hovercard by any chance?

    (The link above also says how to disable them)

  3. I believe kelworthfiles means the snap previews we get when hovering over comments in the Moderation queue. If so the answer is "no" we cannot disable them. The useful purpose they serve for me is to warn me that the site may have "mature" content and not be safe for work (NSFW).
