    I would like to remove the "Powered by WordPress" and "Iconic One Theme" lines at the bottom of my website. How can I do this?

    find element ID or Class and use the CSS command display: none;

    Adrian, where is the file that has that information?

    Should your footer.php, but only use that to find the class or ID, and then use a child theme or the CSS editor to overide the styling.
    Removing anything from the footer.php file will just be replaced on theme update.

    Better yet, if you use fire fox download firebug, or if you use chrome, just right click the powerd by text and go to inspect element and it will bring up a compiled html sheet with the ID and class information right there. That is by far the best way to look at the back end of your website.

    Go to Apperence\Editor in your theme dashboard. Go to footer.php and delete

    a href="htp://themonic.com/iconic-one/">Iconic OneWordpress</a

    works for me..

    Thanks! Worked like a charm. I made sure to make the change on the child theme so that it stays deleted when the theme is updated.

    Connected to that question: Is it ok legally to remove references to the iconic one theme? I know its no problem in regard to the "presented by wordpress" text but how about references to the theme?

    I personally prefer that google and other bad guys cant crawl my site by looking for wordpress and/or wordpress themes.
