    You would need to edit your theme’s header.php and footer.php template files.

    im not sure what information should be delete, the code doesnt show which content is which. for example the guys website is in the footer, but im the new owner so i would like to change that.

    Drop a copy of the footer.php file into the WordPress pastebin and post the pastebin url here with details of exactly what you want to remove. A link to your site using the theme might also help.

    Perhaps someone will be able to provide you with an amended file.

    ok not sure how to do that but i will try. my site is http://www.bigweddingplans.com also my site is coming up very slow and i dont think its bc of to much content. is that a wordpress issue or server?

    the footer.php looks like this, but i dont see anything to change it

    </div>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    </div>

    </div>
    </div>
    <div id=”footer”>

    <?php wp_footer(); // WP footer hook ?>

    </div>
    </body></html>

    The text might be added via the theme’s functions.php file.
