Basic plug-in, works as advertised. It's a good security thing to not let people know what versions you are using, in case there is an exploit; after having said that, you should patch your servers ANYWAY to avoid exploits taking hold. Even if the information about the version is not exposed on your web site, any exploits IN that version WOULD be, so do the patching. This plugin isn't perfect, however, as I did still find the following variable in the code: var monsterinsights_frontend ... so, anyone looking at source would probably know you're using MonsterInsights ... == John ==
