How to Hide Your WordPress Theme Information

A reader recently commented on our How to Name Your WordPress Theme post asking how to hide the theme information from being seen when someone looks at your site info.

It is actually a pretty simple fix that can be done in less than two minutes.

All you need to do is open up your theme’s function.php file.

Add the line of code below and your theme information will no longer show when someone views your site information in their browser.

remove_action(‘wp_head’, ‘wp_generator’);

If you need help feel free to leave a comment below.
