[resolved] WP version not hidden! (6 posts)

    Hi,

    WP version is not hidden, even though I've marked it to be hidden. You can see the WP version with "View Page Source" (FireFox). I can see following info:

    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 3.4" /><meta>

    How can I fix this?

    Regards

    Using version 3.0.2, I do not see that meta name. I suggest go back and toggle those settings. I did not have to do a toggle, it worked straight away. Also try disabling and flushing all cache.

    Thanks,

    I've logged this as a priority 1 issue and we'll get it resolved asap. It looks like it may be a change in WordPress 3.4 that we need to work around.

    Regards,

    Mark.

    Hi Mark,

    Why am I not seeing that meta name on http://talkingmanuals.com using WP 3.4 / WF 3.0.2?

    Hi Caps,

    We're seeing the issue on our test server and on one of our own live sites, so it looks like a confirmed issue.

    Thanks,

    Mark.
