Remove WordPress Feed Links From Header

July 8, 2009 · 11 comments

If, like me, you’re using Thesis, you may find it annoying that WordPress still outputs its default feed links even though you’ve specified a different Syndication/Feed URL under the Thesis Options page.

Thesis Options - Syndication/Feed URL

It turns out there is a very simple solution if you’re using WordPress 2.8 or greater. If you add the following line of code to your custom_functions.php file (or your theme’s functions.php if you’re not using Thesis), WordPress will not add references to the default feed links in the header.


That’s it! Do you know an easier way to do this? If so, let me know in the comments!

By any chance, can you figure out how to leave the global RSS link in the header, while removing the link to comments feed ? Thanks a lot…
