How to Remove the Last Comma from wp_list_bookmarks

Today I was building a list of links on a WordPress site using wp_list_bookmarks.  I wanted to create a comma-separated list such that each link title would have a link after it.  No problem.

Except….the final link also has a comma after it.  The result looks like this:

link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4,

I want it to look like this (with no trailing comma):

link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4

To accomplish this, I used a few php functions as follows:

 '',
		'after'   => ', ',
		'echo'    => '0';
?>
  

Notice that in the $args array, I add a comma after each link. Then in the final echo line, I remove the trailing comma.

Pretty cool, eh!

Do you know of a better way to do this?

SOURCE: I found this solution on the WordPress.org forums, but I lost the link. Sorry!

I ran into a rather serious issue recently: a human on my team (me) intentionally (but accidentally) deleted an Amazon S3 bucket that was serving files to a WordPress site. The solution to the problem follows: Cry when you realize you cannot restore a deleted S3 bucket. Search your computer, your co-workers’ computers, your former…

How I created a Local SEO-Driven WordPress website in 1 hour

This morning, I got curious about the competitiveness of a specific keyword in the Google Map (a.k.a. “Local SEO”). The Google map is this strange beast that I am particularly-curious about, because almost 100% of my customers live within a 10-mile bike ride of my house…and I’d like to have more customers so… The keyword…
