  3. Thanks for the kind words, Kirk. And thank you for going the extra step and providing your solution to others. 🙂

  4. @Scott:

    Nothing like passing on a favor is there? Glad to do it and thanks again. You’ve made things just a bit easier for everyone.

  5. I use this:

    if (function_exists(‘wp_generator’)) {
    remove_action(‘wp_head’, ‘wp_generator’);
    }

  6. John,

    That looks like a fantastic plugin you have there. Being a chronic tweaker I can see I’ll be loading this one up soon enough. It looks like it could eliminate at least two plugins I currently use as well. Good deal!

    I might just run up a post about this on my new tech flavored WP site after I check it out (both sites running 2.6 beta1). Thanks for the info!

  9. I installed the plugin on my site and it still says “Powered by WordPress”.
    I wonder why it didn’t work?
    Thanks!

    • Kat – If you mean “Powered by WordPress” at the bottom of each page of your site, that’s just a bit of code in your theme’s footer. The plugin takes the version number of WordPress out of the generated source code of your site. Right-click on any page of your site. (in a blank area) and select “View source” from the menu and look for WordPress + some version number like 3.0.1 or less. should be near the top somewhere. You shouldn’t find the version number with the plugin installed.

      Since it’s been a long time since WordPress 2.5 hit the streets I’d recommend a more up to date plugin called Secure WordPress instead. It offers much better security options than just removing the version number of WordPress from your source code.

      Hope this helps.
