When you view the source code of the Joomla website, you will notice the following meta generator.
This comes default with Joomla!
<meta name="generator" content="Joomla! - Open Source Content Management" />
Did you ever wonder how to remove them?
Well, there are many ways to do that. I will show you the easiest one. You can do this without hacking code.
I came across Joomla Plugin – Bye Bye Generator, which will do your job.
Very tiny plugin to do precisely – remove Meta generate. You also have the option to rename a custom generator. This is compatible with Joomla 2.5 and 3.x
- Download and Install Bye Bye Generator Plugin
- Open the plugin from Plugin Manager
- Click Remove next to the generator and publish it.
- Refresh your Joomla website and verify with page source code
I tested and worked as expected!
