    Take a look at your sidebar.php file for your theme to see if they're in there and edit them out.

    This is the meta information in your sidebar.php of your current theme. It depends on whether you are using sidebar widgets or not to get rid of it. If you have sidebar widgets, this will be apparent when you login to the admin, go to presentation, as there will be a tab there. If not, go into the theme editor.

    Once in the theme editor, you click on the file on the right that says sidebar.php or sidebar. Once in that theme, scroll down to near the bottom where it says meta. It will say something like this:

    <li id="meta"><?php _e('Credits:'); ?>
    <ul>
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('<abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('comments_rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('The latest comments to all posts in RSS'); ?>"><?php _e('Comments <abbr title="Really Simple Syndication">RSS</abbr>'); ?></a></li>
    <li><a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer" title="<?php _e('This page validates as XHTML 1.0 Transitional'); ?>"><?php _e('Valid <abbr title="eXtensible HyperText Markup Language">XHTML</abbr>'); ?></a></li>
    <li><a href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/"><abbr title="XHTML Friends Network">XFN</abbr></a></li>
    <li><a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="<?php _e('Powered by WordPress, state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform.'); ?>"><abbr title="WordPress">WP</abbr></a></li>
    <?php wp_meta(); ?>
    </ul>
    </li>

    Either erase that portion or put this before it:

    <! --

    and this after it:

    -->

    That comments it out. If you can't save the file because it tells you that at the bottom of the page, you will have to use FTP to download sidebar.php in your /wp-contents/themes/yourthemename/ folder, change it and upload it.
