WP Remove Header Generator


As the name suggests this plugin will completely remove the mandatory ‘Category Base’ from your category permalinks ( e.g. <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 3.0.1" /> ).

The plugin requires no setup or modifying core wordpress files and will not break any code. This plugins quite simple but very usefull for your wordpress blog security.


  1. For security purpose this plugins remove the generator meta tag


  1. Upload remove-header-generator.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s it! You can check your wordpress source code, the generator shouldnt be there anymore.


Why should I use this plugin?

Use this plugin if you want to get rid of WordPress security, so no one knows whats your wordpress version when you forgot to upgrade it.

Will it break any other plugins?

As far as I can tell, no. I have been using this on several blogs for a while and it doesn’t break anything.
