Looking for ways to reduce the wp_head() bloat (2 posts)

    Hi everybody... using wp_head(); in my templates causes WP to include >100kB worth of JavaScript-Files in the header, about 80kB for (compressed!) jQuery and thickbox alone. My question is quite simple: How do I get rid of it?

    As far as I can see, I'm not using any jQuery or thickbox functionality in the front-end of my blog right now. I'd like to lighten the weight of pages as well as the browser load as I assume the scripts take their sweet time to get parsed after loading.

    Any ideas? If you're looking for the details here's the address of my blog: http://www.uni-giessen.de/demokratische-linke/ but beware, it's all German! ;-)

    Soweit ich das sehe, ist das alles JavaScript von Plugins. Also müsstest du diese Plugins (thickbox, calendar, email) auch installiert haben. Eine Deinstallation dieser Plugins sollte das Problem doch lösen, oder?
    Möglicherweise hattest du die mal installiert und es sind noch Reste davon in der Datenbank und deswegen der automatische input in die header.php.
