Can I remove theme name from WP site? (4 posts)

    I would like to remove the theme name (style) of site from my layout.
    I notice on other WP sites sometimes that they do not always have their theme names attached so I am left to assume I am allowed to do so.
    How do I do this? Edit the CSS or something?

    In case I am not being clear enough, this is exactly what I would to edit.

    You can remove the link from footer.php file. See at the left hand side and go to:


    First of all, make a backup by copy all CSS codes on Footer.php file on a plain notepad. If you have done so, press CNTRL+F button and at the top of your right hand side, you will see a box. Type in "http://themezee.com/" or "BizzCard Theme by ThemeZee". Once you found it, you can delete it forever from your blog.

    Anyway, it is advisable to get a permission from theme developer. I don't think they will allow such action.

    Any theme that is included in the repository on this site is released under GPL - and thus, you CAN changes anything you want in the theme. (It's generally considered good form to leave credits in the header of the CSS file - and for sure, not to claim authorship if you did not create the theme yourself.)
