Remove meta generator from page header

To remove the meta generator tag from the page header, add the following code in the functions.php:

remove_action('wp_head', 'wp_generator');

View the code on Gist.

If you do not use the child theme, remember that changes made to the functions.php file will be overwritten when the theme is updated.

While copying code to functions.php file it is not nessesary to copy <?php opening tag.
