I have a site with copyright content and do not want any RSS on it! I cannot have the content distributed legally. Specifially all categories have a default /feed that can be added to the end of the URL. I just found google was indexing this feed, but more importantly anyone who knows wordpress structures can figure it out anyway.
Is there a way to remove RSS functionality across all categories (/feed)? I looked around the internet and there are older solutions for removing one category found here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/remove-certain-categories-from-site-rss-feed
A more indepth question is how to completely remove all RSS.
This solution How to remove feeds from WordPress totally? is not very sound from a maintenance perspective as quoted "It's also super hackish and will probably break at some point in the future". Also I'm not sure how this would impact SEO to have an active link go to your homepage.
I would prefer that the links not exist versus doing a 302. Is this possible?
Is editing the .htaccess to redirect the best solution? This is what I had in mind but it seems messy.
