Remove WP Version


Removes the meta generator tag, with WordPress Version.

A simple plugin to prevent people from knowing what version of WordPress you’re using via your HTML source.

This is a very simple plugin. You can get the same thing by adding this line to funcions.php file of your theme:

remove_action(‘wp_head’, ‘wp_generator’);

But if you’re not comfortable editing a php file, you can use this plugin to remove the WordPress version from your HTML.

The plugin has no settings and does not alter the database.
