This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Subresource Integrity (SRI) Manager


A WordPress plugin for easily adding a Subresource Integrity (SRI) declaration to any third-party content your pages load. The standards-based integrity attribute is a defence-in-depth best practice currently making its way into browsers. This plugin closely tracks the W3C draft.

Currently, the plugin automatically detects any third-party resources (like JavaScript libraries) and will make a SHA-256 hash of the content. It remembers this hash (until you uninstall the plugin or delete the hash from the admin interface), and modifies your page’s <script> and <link> elements on-the-fly. This way, your visitor’s web browsers can automatically ensure that the specific library you’re using is the one they’re loading.

Using this plugin can dramatically reduce the likelihood that visitors to your site will be strong-armed into participating in an HTTP DDoS attack. For more information, see “An introduction to JavaScript-based DDoS” by Nick Sullivan.

Future versions of this plugin will also provide an easy-to-use interface for site administrators to maintain a customized list of resource hashes, and to trigger on-demand integrity checks of these resources.

This plugin is still somewhat skeletal. Feature requests and patches are welcome! Please provide a test case with your patch. See the tests subdirectory for unit tests.

  1. Upload the unzipped wp-sri folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.


WP-SRI breaks my plugin/theme. How can I prevent it from blocking my assets?

If you’re a site administrator, you can manually exclude specific resources by their URL from the Subresource Integrity Manager screen under Tools → Subresource Integrity Manager.

If you’re a plugin or theme author, you can use the option_wp_sri_excluded_hashes filter hook to dynamically whitelist assets. Please only do this for assets that are truly personalised, that is, only for assets whose URL is always the same but whose content is different for each user or page load.

For example, to ensure that the URL at is never checked for integrity with SRI attributes, use the following PHP code:

function example_never_add_integrity_checking( $items ) {
    $items[] = '';
    return $items;
add_action( 'option_wp_sri_excluded_hashes', 'example_never_add_integrity_checking' );

in the age of page-caching (wp-super-cache) and minification/consolidation of scripts/styles (autoptimization), this probably needs to be hooked in after all that gets done otherwise the hash generated won’t match. Ideally, this tests the consolidated minimized script locally even before it gets uploaded to the CDN to cover the pathological case that the script gets mutated at the CDN even before it gets it’s SHA hash done.

The plugin works as advertised, out of the box. Kudos to the developers. It would be smart to update the compatibility info, Tested up to:…

Using the Plug in Yoco Payment Gateway by Yoco for credit cards and this plug in prevents Yoco from poping up and then redirects to the confirm order page like if it was an EFT when customer make payment via card. This prevents card payments. So I disabled it. This worked but im not sacrificing a function to kill revenue. There must be another way had another way just cant remember what the htaccess code was for this.

Change Log

Version 0.4.0

  • Stricter parsing for stylesheet tags; the filterTag function now requires a third parameter.

Version 0.3.0

  • Feature: Add ability to exclude URLs. Useful when SRI attributes block personalised assets.

Version 0.2.2

  • Bugfix: Load plugin textdomain files to prepare for translation.

Version 0.2.1

  • Add the crossorigin="anonymous" attribute/value pair to modified elements to enable Firefox 43’s handling of integrity checks.

Version 0.2

  • Feature: A simple administrative interface can be found under the “Subresource Integrity Manager” option in your WordPress Tools menu. This interface allows you to view the URL and hash pairs currently known by your site, and to delete them. Deleting a known hash will cause WordPress to refetch and rehash the resource when it is next requested.

Version 0.1

  • Initial release.
