    function remove_footer_admin () {
    echo “Change always come soon. be wise grasshopper”;

    Just found this – thanks it is a nice tip. It will be useful for putting a support link into the admin footer

    excellent tip… thanks for sharing!


    There are times when you want others to know that you designed the specific WordPress theme. So you would put a credential link in the WordPress footer. But if you want to take it even further, you can modify the WordPress Admin panel footer. This simple hack is an extra perk that theme designers can add for their clients or in their free themes (like many plugin authors do).

    To accomplish this trick, simply open your theme’s functions.php file and paste the following code:

    function remove_footer_admin () {
        echo 'Powered by <a href="">WordPress</a> | Designed by <a href="">Your Name</a></p>';
        add_filter('admin_footer_text', 'remove_footer_admin');

    It is assumed that you know to paste these codes within the php tags. We always leave credit for WordPress, no matter how customize our admin panel is it wasn’t possible without WordPress. You should follow the same practice to increase awareness about WordPress.

    With the above posted methods, still WordPress version number gets inserted in the footer. Does anybody know how to completely remove it?
