  • 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.

    Bye Bye Generator

    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!
