    In your dashboard, goto appearance then, editor.
    You will see footer.php on the right side.
    You can remove or edit the code there.

    Hi,

    You can remove the footer.php file from the current active theme or you can remove it from index.php file where you have called footer.php file so footer file will not be displayed.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    I'm pretty sure that the output that you wish to modify in the Atahualpa theme footer,

    "Powered by WordPress - Atahualpa Theme by BytesForAll",

    can be found in "functions.php", located in the Atahualpa theme folder, starting at line number 660.

    Best wishes!

    For atahualpa333 version
    1. CHMOD 777 function.php in wp-content/themes/atahualpa333
    2. Remove lines 119 and 120 in function.php
    3. The code is now

    118 function footer_output($footer_content) {
    119 return $footer_content;
    120 }

    And that's it!

    MrPascal, thank you!! Your posting was the most helpful! I was having real issues trying to get rid of that footer which caused a syntax error and I couldn't even open my site. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you for the simplicity of the solution!!!

    Hi,

    I need to modify this line in the footer. Does anyone know how the "Copyright" info can be modified. I've looked in the footer.php and functions.php, but I dont see it. Is it being pulled from the database?

    "Copyright © 2009"

    Thanks for your time!

    @shinch, To modify that line (Atahualpa Theme) go to Appearance >> Atahualpa Theme Options >> Footer and click on 'style & Edit footer' link.

    The best

    MrPascal, or anyone, that worked for me on the very latest WP and Atahualpa.

    However, Please, how do I put this ABOVE the copy write info?

    <p>Home | Privacy Policy | Terms of Service | </p>

    I would like my blog page footers to match my main page footers.

    Thanks for the assistance.
    Peace and Blessings

    It depends on what theme you're using, but it's all in the ATO, either in the theme options window or in the edit window and select the correct file to edit.

    Mr Pascal's fix for atahualpa333 version is perfect:
    1. CHMOD 777 function.php in wp-content/themes/atahualpa333
    2. Remove lines 119 and 120 in function.php
    3. The code is now

    118 function footer_output($footer_content) {
    119 return $footer_content;
    120 }
    I am running WordPress on several of the websites I've built, and that footer has been problematic on many of them. I don't mind giving credit for such a great open source mechanism as WordPress ot the great theme. But, the "in your face footer" just doesn't work, too agressive.

    I'm running Atahualpa version 3.4.5 on most of my sites now, and Mr Pascal's fix has to be modified to work on it.

    1. The file you need locate in 3.4.5 is "functions.php".
    Not "function php".

    2.The operative code is located on lines:
    275 function footer_output($footer_content) {
    276
    277 $footer_content .= '
    Powered by WordPress & the Atahualpa Theme by BytesForAll. Discuss on our WP Forum';
    278
    279 return $footer_content;
    280
    281}

    3. You cannot remove the lines entirely or you will get a fatal error message that show up in your footer.
    Remove only the link information between the ' ' on line 277.
    The finished code should read:
    275 function footer_output($footer_content) {
    276
    277 $footer_content .= '';
    278
    279 return $footer_content;
    280
    281.}

    It's only a minor modification to Mr Pascal's fix, and it works great.

    For the person who asked about inserting his own copyright information in the footer, just place it there in html. Go to the Atahualpa "Style and edit footer area", then to the "Footer content" area. Cold write or paste any html you want there. Text, links, images, widget areas, anything...it all works.

    You can see the finished product on my website

    Sorry, forgot that someone might want to see the modification. There is a footer there, but it only contains the lower graphic element in my visual framework.

    I'm trying to just remove "This blog is Powered by WordPress" from the footer of the shopping_sales_and_deals_eve045 WP template. It looks like it's all locked up because they don't want me messing with their copyrighted/promo info., which I don't care about. Does anyone have an idea of where I can go or what to do? Wanted to leave, trying to contact the site I got it from, as a last resort, but I did see language in functions.php regarding a "Footer Link Removal Key"? Sounds like I could use a locksmith. :^) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Anyone know how to remove the footer text in the "tribune" theme that says "Coded by..."?

    The tribune footer.php file seems to indicate the entire footer.php file must not be touched...or else...??
