cloaking plugin information in page source (3 posts)

    I was wondering if there was a way I can cloak, obscure or hide the names of the plugins I am using in my wordpress source page so that there is no way that people can see what plugins I am running on my wordpress install.

    I know that cloaking can be done for URLS and I have seen certain plugins that do it for links but I would like to do it in the main source. For example, I would like:

    http://websitename.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/js/jquery.form.min.js?ver=3.18

    to become something like:

    websitename.com/abc

    And then if they try and paste that url in their browser I can protect the script so the user does not have access to it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make that possible?

    99.999% sure that would be a "Probably not".

    You could play with .htaccess rules along the lines of hotlink protection but that will (probably) break things for resources such as javascript, CSS, etc.

    I guess you could try rewriting the urls in htaccess. Another way would be to hardcode the plugin scripts in the header.php (renamed to whatever you want) and physically remove them from the plugin files. YOu would most likely have to redo this everytime you updated a plugin though...
