Blog Post + Snippet:

Stop It, WordPress!
Whenever we create a fresh installation of WordPress, we get a few default themes that all of us usually delete when we install the Divi theme. But every year during a major WordPress update, we get the next default theme installed automatically, and it is very annoying to delete them all every year on every site. I’m not sure who thought it was a good idea, but I consider it bloatware. So let’s put a stop to it! In this quick tutorial, I will show you how to permanently prevent the new default WordPress theme from installing on your website.

Now you are ready to do this! Here are the steps to take. Be sure to follow along with the video, it will help!

Browse to the root folder of the site, usually the “public_html” folder.
Open/edit the wp-config.php file.

  1. Thanks! Great tip. I have over a dozen DIVI sites I'm maintaining and agree it's very annoying to have unnecessary themes added automatically. If you add up all those themes, that's hundreds if not thousands of files that my VPS is managing and backing up etc. I know what I'll be doing for the next half hour…

  2. Hello Nelson,

    I would like to thank you for your work, I have subscribed to your channel and regularly check out your helpful tips & tricks.

    I like your videos because they are always kept very compact, very well explained and documented on your blog.

    Keep it up

    Many greetings

    Jürgen

  3. I am not sure if I am missing something here but 1) I don't think that the theme hurts anything and 2) removing it is super easy. I only watched the beginning of the video but he doesn't explain why it is necessary to go through this procedure.
