    I meant the standard footer which is dark and has the version number. I was wondering how to remove it.

    The footer in the Admin section?

    You're probably best hiding the version number (and footer bar, if you want) via the Admin CSS. The problem here is that, each time you upgrade, your changes will be overwritten. So your best bet would be to look for a plugin that will store your Admin CSS changes separately.

    Do you mean the wp-admin.css file? There is a section called #footer in that file. So what do I need to do to hide the whole dark band with all the text in it and just have one thin line remaining?

    Also there is a large white space between the last box on the page and the footer band - is there anyway to reduce that?

    Thanks so much - really appreciate your help.

    Something like:

    #footer {
    display:none;
    }

    should work. I wouldn't recommend that on the front end of a site but for the footer in the back end, it should be fine.

    I think you'll find that white space will fill up depending upon which page you're currently viewing and how much content you have in the blog generally.

    That did remove the footer from the 'Dashboard' page but it remains on the other pages like 'Add New Post', 'Add New Link' etc.

    Also the white space is quite large after removing the header.
