How To Remove Slider Revolution Meta Generator Tag

Slider Revolution is a very popular premium slider plugin that is often bundled with many premium WordPress themes from the Envato Marketplace. The plugin allows you to build unique and powerful sliders. The plugin is one of the best slider plugins on the market.

Slider Revolution loads a meta generator tag in the header of your website’s code. Having a meta generator tag does not hurt your search engine optimization (SEO) value, however there is some security benefit to removing the code because it prevents users from knowing which version of the slider you are using.

Look for the following line in the view-source code on your homepage to find the meta-generator tag.

<meta name=”generator” content=”Powered by Slider Revolution 5.4.1 – responsive, Mobile-Friendly Slider Plugin for WordPress with comfortable drag and drop interface.” />

Add This Code: Remove Slider Revolution Meta Generator Tag

If you want to go ahead and remove the code from your website you need to add the following code to your functions.php or add it to your own site-specific plugin.

add_filter( ‘revslider_meta_generator’, ‘__return_empty_string’ );

This code should remove all traces of the meta generator tag from the frontend of your website! If you have any questions or are having issues feel free to ask them below!
