Block external requests

Wpsnipp – For some reason, your WordPress blog can send some info to external sources, as such as AUtomattic, the company behind WordPress. Although you don’t really have to worry about it in my opinion, you can block those requests with the following technique.

Adding this PHP code to your wp-config.php will stop WordPress from making external requests to check for updates download RSS feeds etc.



define('WP_HTTP_BLOCK_EXTERNAL', true);
