    You'll probably need to edit the footer.php file. You can do this via an editor on your computer and then upload that file, or go to Appearance > Editor and find that file and make the changes.

    I don't see it in there, but I am thinking it's an option in your theme. There's a section in there that says basically get the theme options and display them. So I imagine that's where the footer text is coming from. So find your theme options and see if there's a way to edit what is in the footer.

    Is it the 'theme functions' that your talking about????

    It could be but there should also be a setting somewhere in the admin menu that allows you to change some settings that are specific to the theme, at least that's what the footer leads me to believe. I am not familiar with the theme you are using so I might be wrong.

    I'm not really able to figure out any such option in the menu; so I will try finding an option somewhere in the theme functions section.

    Okay I just installed the theme to check it out, and the code is found in the footer.php file. The code you posted above must not have been the entire file. So in that file, you should find this and either delete it or change the text:

    <b title="Mantra 1.0" >Mantra</b> Theme designed by <a href="http://www.cryoutcreations.com" target="_blank" title="Cryout Creations" >Cryout Creations</a>

    I did find the above mentioned code in footer.php and tried deleting it, but I do not see any changes in my website. Do I have to check for the coding in a different file?

    Hi, from the designer of the Manta theme.
    You do NOT remove <i>Mantra theme designed by Cryout Creations</i> from the Mantra theme because that is the copyright. Do you guys know what copyright is?
    I can't believe you actually had the nerve to ask that here and what's even harder to believe is that you found someone that's actually trying to help you with removing the copyright from our theme.
    I think I'll have you guys reported.

    [...]
    I can't believe you actually had the nerve to ask that here

    Do you know that all WordPress themes are supposed to be released under GPL?

    I think I'll have you guys reported.

    To who?

    @esmi
    All themes ARE released under GPL licence. There is one included with the Mantra Theme as well. But do you think that means you can remove the copyright?
    The GLP says you can modify it and pass it on but defineltly not remove the copyright and make it your own.

    Under GPL, you can remove its display on the site, yes.

    'Under GPL, you can remove its display on the site, yes'
    This was what I had intended to; I had no plans of removing the Original Copyright and making it my own!!!!!

    Drop a copy of the footer.php file into the WordPress pastebin and post the pastebin url here. Perhaps someone will be able to spot the problem and suggest a solution.

    From their FAQ:

    Can I remove the copyright text in the footer?

    We strongly recommend that you don’t. It’s the only thing we ask in return for all our hard work over this FREE theme. Don’t expect any kind of support from us if you remove it.

    But I really need to remove the copyright. I’m doing this site for my employer/company/grandmother and I have to. Is there no other way?

    By removing the copyright link you’re killing Mantra. You’re responsible. There’s blood all over your hands.
    So… wanna make it up a bit? Plant a tree. Adopt a stray dog. Or make a donation to us and list your site in the description.

    hello Everyone!

    I just started using mantra and to me the whole wordpress is all new to me.. I am also wondered if I could make some changes is in the footer/ customizing it. But ofcourse it is never my intention to break any copyright laws also not to Cryout creations ( I am reallye happy to use its theme, since I finally found a theme that can be adjusted to some more 'static design' thank you for that ' designer of CryoutCreations' !

    So to summarize; right now my footer says:

    | Mantra Theme by Cryout Creations | Powered by WordPress.

    Is it allowed to remove any of the text ? for example Powerd by WordPress?
    Thank you!

    Hello everyone!

    I solved this problem! You must go to this diretory ->

    Mantra>include>theme-functions.php ;) Change it!

    Thank you CryoutCreations...

    /**
    * Site info
    */
    function mantra_site_info() {
    $mantra_options= mantra_get_theme_options();
    foreach ($mantra_options as $key => $value) {
    ${"$key"} = $value ;
    } //delete_transient( 'cryout_theme_info');
    $mantra_theme_data = get_transient( 'cryout_theme_info');
    ?>
    <div id="site-info" >
    " title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home">
    <?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?>
    | 2012
    </div><!-- #site-info -->

    I know this is old, but it's got such a lot of silly argument in it, I just had to comment.

    It's, of course, legal, but also only good citizenship to give credit where credit is due, but it's ridiculous to say you can't change the text in the footer.

    Appearance/Edit Themes/footer.php

    Here is my modification of my footer where I use a heavily modified Mantra theme, which I love, btw, and donated to.

    </div><!-- #colophon -->
    
    		<div id="footer2">
    			<div id="site-info" >
    				<a href="<?php echo home_url( '/' ) ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></a>
    			| Theme is a modification of the Mantra theme designed by Cryout Creations. | Powered by
    			<?php do_action( 'mantra_credits' ); ?>
    				<a href="<?php echo esc_url('http://wordpress.org/' ); ?>"
    						title="<?php esc_attr_e('Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'mantra'); ?>" rel="generator">
    					<?php printf(' %s.', 'WordPress' ); ?>
    				</a>
    
    			</div>
