By default WordPress will add meta information into the head tag of your website. This meta information can provide your visitors with lots of different information about your WordPress site from:

  • Category RSS URLs
  • Post RSS URL
  • Comment RSS URL
  • Really Simple Discovery end point
  • Windows Live Writer Manifest
  • Index Link

remove_action( 'wp_head', 'rsd_link' ); // Display the link to the Really Simple Discovery service endpoint, EditURI link
remove_action( 'wp_head', 'wlwmanifest_link' ); // Display the link to the Windows Live Writer manifest file.
