    Is this a wordpress.com site or a self-hosted WordPress install?

    self-hosted Wordpess install.

    I removed footer.php myself in the past. But on this theme, can’t find the editor.

    Do not edit the theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes. Or install a custom CSS plugin.

    Try using Firefox with the Firebug add-on to locate a mutable CSS id or class for the block that you want to hide and take if from there. Or use whatever developer tool is available in your web browser.

    edvinaspauza, just remove this code from the footer.php:

    </div><!-- #main -->
    
    	<footer id="colophon" class="site-footer" role="contentinfo">
    		<div class="site-info">
    			<?php do_action( 'bold_headline_credits' ); ?>
    			<a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'A Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'bold_headline' ); ?>" rel="generator"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'bold_headline' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>
    			<span class="sep"> | </span>
    			<?php printf( __( 'Theme: %1$s by %2$s.', 'bold_headline' ), 'Bold Headline', '<a href="http://bluelimemedia.com/" rel="designer">Bluelime Media</a>' ); ?>
    		</div><!-- .site-info -->
    	</footer><!-- #colophon -->
    
    </div>*/<!-- #page -->

    It’s best to create a child theme first and then add the footer.php to it’s directory.

    @edvinaspauza you can make a child theme as per recommended by @mr. Lou, but don’t remove the entire code. you need the first and last closing div.

    Just remove:

    <footer id="colophon" class="site-footer" role="contentinfo">
    		<div class="site-info">
    			<?php do_action( 'bold_headline_credits' ); ?>
    			<a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'A Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'bold_headline' ); ?>" rel="generator"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'bold_headline' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>
    			<span class="sep"> | </span>
    			<?php printf( __( 'Theme: %1$s by %2$s.', 'bold_headline' ), 'Bold Headline', '<a href="http://bluelimemedia.com/" rel="designer">Bluelime Media</a>' ); ?>
    		</div><!-- .site-info -->
    	</footer><!-- #colophon -->

    If you want to simply hide it with CSS, you can use:

    .site-footer {display: none;}

    My bad. Thanks for the correction Christine.
