resetting the "generator" meta tag

Joomla automatically creates a meta tag called "generator". To remove this tag a very handy plugin is available on the Joomla Extensions page: Joomla Extension page for Set Generator Plugin by Opens page in a new window.

Simply download it and install it in Joomla as you would any other extension. Go to the plugin, enable it and enter the text in the "Tag Text" in "Basic Options" in the right column. Save.

SPECIAL NOTE: If you are already using this plugin and upgrade to Joomla 2.5.4, the "old" plugin may not continue to work. Simply delete it and upload the newest Version 2012.04.23 directly from the developer's site: Opens page in a new window.

The deveoloper's site shows only Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.6. Click the "Joomla 1.6". This is the one that has been upgraded to version 2012.04.23. See the "Changelog" information to verify.
