Removing unwanted plugin links under footer area (14 posts)

    I installed a few plugins and see that those plugins inserted subtle links way below the footer area.

    Is there an easy way to remove them?

    The links or the plugins?

    just the links.
    I imagine I have to search within the plugin's php file to do that?

    You can see the two links, one with graphics at the extreme bottom of one of my sites:

    I can't see any links inserted by plugins at the very bottom of the page. Just a single link for a Joomla template on what appears to be a Joomla site.

    Theres's a GoStats graphic/link at the bottom and a template-tweak link at the extreme bottom in the center in a subtle dark color.

    Did you, by chance, mean THIS URL instead of what you provided earlier?

    Ah! That would explain why I spent a few minutes wandering bemusedly around a Joomla site. It had a rather nice design, though, so it wasn't a complete waste of time. ;-)

    The GoStats graphic looks like it might be used to to record your page views. so, if you try to remove it, you might also lose your Geostats page counts.

    The other two links in green are from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/theme-tweaker/. Looks like they're pretty well-embedded in the plugin code. I can't see any easy way to take them off the screen without potentially affecting other plugins that you might use in future where you do want access to their footer links.

    Thanks!
    The theme-tweaker plugin instructions actually mentions a way to remove the code by "editing the theme-tweaker.php file and removing all references to $unreal"

    However wheneven I remove soem of those lines and uplaod the edited file, I get an error.

    Would it be too much to paste the contents of the 800 line php file here?

    Comment out on line 825 ↓ it will disabled the footer links.

    // add_action('wp_footer', array($thmTwk, 'footer_action'));
