[resolved] Essential Header Items (3 posts)

    I was just checking my theme's header. The question is, is there any reason why most themes have the code below. Are they really necessary? If not, can I remove them from the header?

    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />
    <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly&format=link'); ?>

    Thanks.

    The pingback url is for, as the name implies, pingbacks. Read about them here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Introduction_to_Blogging#Pingbacks, then the archive function is for your archives. So, I'd say leave 'em in there.

    Thanks. I'll leave em there. It's just the layout is ugly. :)
