hi guys, i noticed that meta tag "generator" is defined twice. see your source code, you'll know what i mean. my take is, the generator tag shouldn't be in the source at all. i removed the tag generated by the wp core. how would i remove the second generator tag created by platformpro? tom

Hey Thomas, what meta generator are you talking about? If it's on our end we'll check into it..

thanks bryan, i know the plugin. the problem is, it just removes one of the tags. i think it has something to do with either the base theme, or the platform pro head. any ideas? tom
