In this tutorial, we will show you how to block the XML-RPC for WordPress website with a simple little function. The reason we want to do this is that it’s vulnerable to attacks; at this core, XML-RPC was created to ease communication between apps, clients, and WordPress.

These communications are with the API Rest. WP Scan strongly recommends that it needs to be disabled.

Fonction pour désactiver le XML-RPC sur WordPress

// disable xmlrpc
function themespress_remove_xmlrpc_methods( $methods ) {
  return array();
add_filter( 'xmlrpc_methods', 'themespress_remove_xmlrpc_methods' );
