Remove unwanted script from head section?

  • Creator

    Hi Jason

    My Alyeska site has a script in the head section which redirects mobile visitors to another site. I think it was placed there by a mobile site plugin that I’ve long since deleted.

    Now I can’t figure out how to delete the script. What’s the best way to do this?

    Hello Dave,

    Plugins you’re using do not physically add code to files of your theme. All WordPress themes call a function called wp_head(). This function outputs any scripts that plugins are sending to it from WordPress. So, if a plugin is no longer active, it’s not possible for it still be sending a script to be outputted.

    Here are the only things I can think of that would make what you’re describing possible:

    1) Are you using a caching plugin like W3 Total Cache? If so, clear your cache through the plugin’s interface (or try disabling the plugin to see if it resolves everything)

    2) You’re mistaken about which plugin is adding the script? So, go through your plugins again.

    3) At some point, you manually added the script yourself to header.php of the theme? Maybe open header.php, and make sure you didn’t do this.
