    Hello,

    A vendor we used to evaluate our site recommended to turn off Trace/Track on our WP site.

    1) Does GeneratePress theme support turning this feature off?
    2) If so what is the recommended method .htaccess or in the httpd.conf files?
    3) How would you see or test the affect of this?

    This is what they recommended.
    /var/www/html/wordpress/.htaccess

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} ^TRACE
    RewriteRule .* – [F]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} ^TRACK
    RewriteRule .* – [F]
    ….

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    To be perfectly honest with you, I’ve never even heard of it.

    I did a quick search and found this article (from 2009): https://perishablepress.com/disable-trace-and-track-for-better-security/

    Looks like .htaccess if the most commoon method.
