Declutter WordPress

This plugin lets you remove some of the default headers, tags and classes that WordPress inserts into your template by default.

This plugin lets you remove some of the default headers, tags and classes that WordPress inserts into your template by default. I personally find that some of them are unnecessary and just waste bandwidth.

The plugin currently lets you configure the following:

  • In the head of HTML and XML documents
    • Feed links (blog and comment feeds)
    • Extra feed links (category, tag, author, search feeds)
    • Really Simple Discovery and Windows Live Manifest endpoint links
    • Links to previous/next posts
    • Generator tag which reveals which version of WordPress you are using
    • Shortlink tag
  • In HTTP response headers:
    • Shortlink header
    • Redundant Etag headers
    • X-Pingback header
  • Remove HTML body classes that you do not need (there is a huge list of classes that WordPress automatically inserts into the body tag)
  • Remove post classes that you do not need (e.g., type-, category-, tag-)
  • Remove comment classes that you do not need (e.g., odd, even, alt, byuser, bypostauthor, depth-N)
  • Remove menu item classes that you do not need (e.g., menu-item, current-menu-item, current_page_ancestor)

If you come across any bugs or have suggestions, please contact me or use the support forums. I can't fix it if I don't know it's broken!
