    Dequeue a script

     * Dequeue the jQuery UI script.
     * Hooked to the wp_print_scripts action, with a late priority (100),
     * so that it is after the script was enqueued.
    function wpdocs_dequeue_script() {
    	wp_dequeue_script( 'jquery-ui-core' );
    add_action( 'wp_print_scripts', 'wpdocs_dequeue_script', 100 );
