Removing the Joomla Generator tag PDF Print E-mail

If you want to Remove the Joomla Generator tag from your website, just find the file includes/frontend.php and delete the line: $mainframe->addMetaTag( 'Generator', $_VERSION->PRODUCT . " - " . $_VERSION->COPYRIGHT);

Thats it, now all kind of components writers wont sneak into your Joomla code by using this tag.

In Joomla 1.5 it's in here:
/libraries/joomla/document/html/renderer/head.php
Delete the line: $strHtml .= $tab.'<meta name="generator" content="'.$document->getGenerator().'" />'.$lnEnd;

Just use a plugin
Just use a plugin to do this for you, like : http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/site-management/credits/10496 
 
It's better, so when you switch templates you don't have to recode it again.

Thanks for the tip... but
Thanks for the tip, but it's not entrirely correct - try installing the free version of Artio JoomSEF and see the ads they stick into your site... The ads can be removed, but simply binning the generator tag is insufficient.
