[How To] Stop Windows Live Writer From Downloading Theme


If you use to write you WordPress blogs via Windows Live Writer like many bloggers do, including me then you might have noticed that when you add any blog then it asks you to download theme and style so that you can have live preview.

But when WLW downloads them and style it publish a sample post and then delete it too, but that sample post might occurs in your Feed, or on Social Network websites.

So if you download disallow WLW from downloading theme then all you have to do is put a small code it your theme’s functions.php file :-

remove_action(‘wp_head’, ‘wlwmanifest_link’);

That’s it, now WLW wont be able to download your theme.
