Hey everyone, just wondering why /wp-includes directories are being indexed on my site? It’s kind of embarrassing that you can see various directories and their contents:

/wp-includes/SimplePie
- Author.php
- Cache.php
- Cache/
- Caption.php
- Category.php
- Content/
- Copyright.php
ETC.

So what happened? My site runs fine but did I install it incorrectly? And how do I fix this? Thanks!

You need to turn off directory indexing.

Ask your hosting provider

or if you are familiar with editing .htaccess files you can try adding Options -Indexes to it.

You can bloack those pages with robots.txt . Bloacks with bots will not index any url which you listed in that file.

you could use robots.txt to dissallow: wp-includes/ wp-admin/

or you could put htaccess with : Options -Indexes on wp-includes directory
