Spun
Remove "proudly powered by WordPress" text (12 posts)

    Hello everyone,

    I am creating a website (stefanopagnoncelli.com) with the SPUN theme and I have some questions. Here's one:

    - is it possible to remove or edit the bottom text in the home page "PROUDLY POWERED BY WORDPRESS | THEME: SPUN BY CAROLINE MOORE"?

    I haven't purchased the CUSTOM DESIGN yet. Maybe I need to buy it to do the modifications I need (maybe in the EDITOR sheet?)?

    Thank you for your help!

    Stefano

    You could hide it with CSS if you want, or you'd create a Child Theme: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes and then remove it from the code itself. Which do you want to do?

    I am reading what a Child Theme is. It sounds interesting and very useful. If I understand well, it's possible to take one or more features from another theme (anyone) and apply it to my Spun theme, right?

    You could, as long as those changes would work in the Spun theme, although it's unlikely that they would.

    A Child Theme is more about giving you a manageable environment where you can make modifications to theme files safely.

    that sounds great but a little complicated for me, at least for the moment :)
    You wrote about hiding the "powered by WordPress" text with the CSS, could you please tell me how?
    Thanks :)

    Into your Custom CSS Manager plugin add:

    #colophon > div > a:nth-child(1),
    #colophon > div > a:nth-child(1) ~ .sep {
        display: none;
    }

    that's great thanks, but there's still "THEME: SPUN BY CAROLINE MOORE." text.
    How can you know what to write in the CSS Manager? Is there a way to learn that language myself? :)
    And I am really sorry to bother you again, but do you think you can help me for my other posts as well? :'(

    Oh instead try this:

    .site-footer {
     display: none;
    }

    I haven't purchased the CUSTOM DESIGN yet.

    By the way, what is this "custom design" thing you could purchase?

    it worked! Thank you very much :)

    Oh, I read somewhere that it's possible to upgrade the CSS for something like 30 $ per year, but I was surely mistaken! :)

    That possibly could be WordPress.COM, which is different to the theme you have. For any paid stuff on the Spun theme, although I don't think there is, make sure it is Caroline Moore who is providing that paid service to you and not some third party

    I see. Thanks for letting me understand a little more of WP every day :)
