No Blog Clients


This plugin removes two actions that produce link
elements in the header of all your WordPress URL locations.
These two link elements are the resulting HTML of the actions:

The xmlrpc.php link instructs blog clients where to find the
Wordpress XML-RPC interface via really simple discovery (RSD).
The second link to wlwmanifest.xml reveals the location of
your WordPress administration dashboard, the location of the
edit post script and manage comments scripts.


  1. Upload the no-blog-clients folder to your wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin from your WordPress administration dashboard
