hi – one problem I’ve had w/WP plugins is that anyone, any competitor who wants to rip off your design work, can just Ctrl-U/firebug your WP page and discover the name and identity of plugins being used.
One tedious workaround is to go through and rename in all plugin source files (Ctrl-F/replace) and all code references inside every php file/css/js so that everything related to that plugin’s name, so that it’s renamed.
Are there any easier methods to rename/obfuscate the names of plugins used in WP sites? I don’t want my competitors scanning source code to find identity of every plugin I use, of course, since it makes it easier for them to copy my design work in my sites. (and for those of you with client sites, they’d ask, too I think). I’m in a highly competitive industry and my competitors always try and copy me.
Don’t care about if they use it also, care about how well they use it. There’s no better method.
