    Line 14: <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”my.com/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/style.css” type=”text/css” media=”screen” />

    Line 26: <script type=’text/javascript’ src=’my.com/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/global.js?ver=2.9.1′></script>

    Is there a way to hide “buddypress” from the source code or make the “wp-content/plugins/buddypress” part less conspicuous? I don’t want to give away the secret sauce.

    You can google about escaping HTML, but keep in mind this will require Javascript.

    You’ll also have to modify the header actions, which are added to BP. This means on upgrades, you’ll have to manually make sure you keep up with changes.

    I wouldn’t recommend this myself.

    What’s wrong with sharing the secret sauce?

    It’s open source. We all have sauce on our collars.

    I do understand what you are talking about.

    I would also rather hide this “open secret” at my website, thereby saying I would not like my competitors to know what software I am running my website on.

    Not sure how this complies with GPL and Andys comment about something like “cats & puppies….”

    My apologies. I’m sorry if it came off that way. I understand now.

    No need to make something so simple complicated for no reason.

    With Firebug, not sure this would work anyhoo.

    Exactly designodyssey! If someone wanted to find out what you were using, they would find out!

    Well – you could hide it but you’d have to hide a ton of references in html to the underlying framework and it woul dbe nearly impossible to completely pull off, conventions being what they are. If you’re that good, i bet you also can build one helluva theme!
