Remove WooCommerce Generator Tag

If you would like to remove the Remove WooCommerce Generator Tag from the <head> section of your WordPress installation, you can add the following line somewhere, perhaps in your wordpress functions.php file:

remove_action('wp_head', array($GLOBALS['woocommerce'],'generator'));

I’ve updated the code to work with the most recent version of Woo Commerce, try adding this to the functions.php file of your WordPress theme:

function remove_woo_commerce_generator_tag()
    remove_action('wp_head',array($GLOBALS['woocommerce'], 'generator'));

That will prevent the following line from being shown in your HTML code:

<!-- WooCommerce Version -->
<meta name="generator" content="WooCommerce 1.5" />

    For WooCommerce 2.1 and above, use this:

    function remove_woo_commerce_generator_tag() { remove_action('wp_head','wc_generator_tag'); } add_action('get_header','remove_woo_commerce_generator_tag');
