Comment on Remove WordPress Meta Generator Tag by Rajesh Iyer.
I did exactly as you described. I used the Coffee Cup FTP through which I first took back up of whole site. Then I made the changes in the functions.php file. Added those 3 lines after the last but the next & previous links still show. Can I email you and give you my website details? I use the Solostream theme of WPVideo.
Thanks for your help.
