There is a tag in your WordPress header file that generates it’s version number, every time someone loads the page. A simple view of the source code will reveal that you have WordPress 2.x. If you’ve chosen not to upgrade because you like 2.3’s interface or have some plugins that will not be compatible, your don’t want people (ahem, hackers) knowing that do you?? I thought not.
The Simple Fix:
- Download your current theme’s “Header.php” via FTP, or edit it in the WordPress Theme Editor.
- Open it up in Notepad++ (That I Recommended Last Post) and find the line that says:
- Delete it and save your file.
- Your Done! Wasn’t so hard was it?
meta name=”generator” content=”WordPress <php bloginfo(‘version’); >” / <!– leave this for stats please –>
I actually knew about this fix for a long time, but I even still had it in my theme. Doh!
