    How can I delete the theme's name from my footer?

    I am using the colorway theme.
    In the footer it shows "Colorway WordPress Theme by InkThemes.com".

    You will probably need to start customising your theme's CSS or its footer.php template file via a child theme or a custom CSS plugin.

    Do you have a CSS code to delete it?

    Do you have the child theme set up?

    What is a Child Theme?

    Did you read the link esmi posted above? It allows you to modify the theme without losing those changes when the theme is updated.

    Ok, but when I make the child theme then how do I edit it to make it not show "Colorway WordPress Theme by InkThemes.com" in the Footer?

    If you only want to remove that line of text (vs. changing it) you can do that using CSS - add this to the custom CSS section of your theme:

    .footer-navi .right-navi {
        display: none;
    }

    probably won't work with CSS;
    you will need to edit footer.php - ideally after creating a child theme; http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    the code should be easy enough to find.

    The Child theme idea is too hard for me.

    I am using this code:

    .footer-navi .right-navi {
        display: none;
    }

    Can I put something different there?

    Not without creating a child theme -
