    Hello so I have this theme and I love it , the only problem is that when I click on the article and go to the bottom of the page there is the name of the theme and a slogan that says "Just another WordPress Site".
    Here is the link if you want to see

    I really don't like it and tried finding it in the Editor and Theme Options but I could find it. Could you help me?

    Use Firebug or other web inspection tool to discover the CSS involved for this and add

    display: none;

    In that theme, the relevant CSS would be:

    #footer {
       display: none;
    }

    Do note that it's not recommended to make any changes to theme files -- but rather use a child theme or custom CSS option or plug-in. That way your changes won't be erased when the theme is updated.

    If you're going to do it, do it right. Create a child theme as WPyogi has suggested, but don't modify the CSS to hide the area. That can be seen as cloaking links by Google and other search engines and can cause penalties because it looks like you're trying to hide links from normal users.

    What you need to do is modify your footer.php file to remove the area that the links are in. That will remove them completely and correctly.
