Hi @zubair56,

 

 

The best thing you can do is minify the CSS and the JS for your website.

By doing that, all the CSS stylesheets and JS files are compressed into one CSS stylesheet and one single JS file.

 

In order to do that, you have to:

 

1- Log into your Magento Admin Panel and navigate to System -> Configuration -> Advanced -> Developer.

2- Enable the CSS and JS merging

Hello @Gabriel Guarino

 

I did the same but still some following random url is showing in source code of frondend

 

http://xyz.com/magento/skin/frontend/theme_name/default/images/xyz.jpg

 

how i can remove these links from source code of frontend???

Hi @zubair56,

 


Those are the images from the theme. The only way to prevent that to happen is to change the name of the theme from your codebase and then update the admin configuration to use the new name theme.

NB! Be aware of minyfing CSS and JS to one combined file this may and results in changes of Third Party modules and themes etc. that is not by Magento.

hello

 

i can't just change the theme name because theme name is tightly linked with Extensions which comes with the theme. If i change the theme name, the extensions will broke. 

I want to hide not only the theme name but the extensions names as well which came with this theme and branded tightly with this theme.

ya i know that, Minifying CSS and JS are not solution of my problem as well because this is not hiding the links in which the theme and extension name is showing

 

maybe i think there is noway to hide the theme name which i quite awkward thing because anyone will know which theme i am using and he/she will design same website like mine..... All my hardwork will be wiped out after that ... disappointing...
