This section provides a way to control aspects of the front-side scripts loaded using the HTML script tag. An example of such a link:

<script type='text/javascript' id='jquery-framework' src='https://-domain-name-/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4'></script>

Remove Version

The option method helps to remove the JavaScript version number which is being appended at the end of every script file. Generally, the version number is plain information upon the used JavaScript code. Keeping version numbers for scripts, grant additional information to hackers who try to identify specific JavaScript code and versions known as being vulnerable.

Activating the option, per the above example the new tag becomes:

<script type='text/javascript' id='jquery-framework' src='https://-domain-name-/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js'></script>

Remove ID from script tag

This removes the id property inside the script tags. Most of the JavaScript assets IDs, include references to WordPress and used plugins, like wp- qxshop-js erc.

Activating the option, the tag becomes:

<script type='text/javascript' src='https://-domain-name-/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js'></script>
