You can override the phtml: Theme_Root/Magento_Wishlist/templates/link.phtml

Instead this:

<span data-bind="text: wishlist().counter" class="counter qty"></span>

You can do this:

<span data-bind="text: wishlist().items.length" class="counter qty"></span>
  • I'm wondering is it worked for you? For me its not working console generates error, but weird part is after reload page error disappear!!

    E.g I have 5 Items in wishlist after doing as you said, it shows me 3 items Commented Feb 11, 2021 at 11:49

you can remove it from

if you have no theme installed you can go to this and change the 1 item and %1 items.

vendor/magento/module-catalog/i18n/en_US.csv or

if you have a theme installed you can go to this location and do that.


  • thanks! but if i change "%1 items" to "%1" in en_US.csv it will change every where it found "%1 items". is there any other way?

  • @waqar this is not used at more places so I think it will not affect your site. I personally replaced it and didn't see changes.You can go ahead. Commented Aug 31, 2017 at 10:26

You can also edit counter generated phrase.

Look at the file in:


on line 84 you will see:

protected function createCounter($count)
    if ($count > 1) {
        return __('%1 items', $count);
    } elseif ($count == 1) {
        return __('1 item');
    return null;

You only have to override that method in your custom module.

For more info on how to do that this, look the following:

    Please correct the path in your answer. It's "CustomerData" folder. /vendor/magento/module-wishlist/CustomerData/Wishlist.php Commented Dec 21, 2018 at 6:41

You can use magento default way, just need to add simple regex for it.

Replace :

span data-bind="text: wishlist().counter" class="counter qty"></span

With :

span data-bind="text: wishlist().counter.replace(/[^0-9]+/g, '')" class="counter qty"></span
