i would like to remove the “link:” line added to the http headers since wordpress 4.4
here is a
curl -I killcandida.org
here is the output extract of the line that i would like to delete:
Link: <http://killcandida.org/wp-json/>; rel="https://api.w.org/"
Note that i don’t talk here about html headers but http headers.
Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.
The output is generated by the rest_output_link_header(). This function is used in two actions, wp_head and template_redirect in default-filters.php:@line234. You can remove the function from those hooks to remove the output you wanted to remove. Put the following codes in your theme’s functions.php to achieve the desired result.
remove_action( 'wp_head', 'rest_output_link_wp_head', 10); remove_action( 'template_redirect', 'rest_output_link_header', 11);
Both actions are defined in
// REST API filters.
