  1. I have checked my website and it also suggest me to remove these kind of things. But I wonder does it really hurt the website speed or just a point that need to remove.

  2. Added the code and it resulted in a 500 error – now the site is down. No idea how to fix it. Any ideas on how to UNDO this? Have deleted from the function.php file, and still not resolved…

    • If this has still not fixed, please use the ftp account to remove the code you have added to your function.php and upload the file after removing the code, this will fix the issue.
