Support » Developing with WordPress » Powered by wordpress footer

  • Hi everyone,
    I’m having trouble removing the “powered by wordpress” footer on my blog page. I’ve had a look online and followed the video tutorials and instructions on removing the footer by going to my footer.php either from my dashboard or FTP but I can’t find the relevant text which I need to remove i.e. there is nothing that says “proudly powered”…
    Any help would be amazing.

    Try this:

    1-Go to Appearance > Customize on the WordPress dashboard

    2-Click Additional CSS at the bottom of the menu

    3-Paste in the CSS code below

    .site-info { display: none; }

    Regards

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply.
    I have heard that using the above CSS code is bad for SEO. Would there be any alternative?

    Hi,

    Open footer.php and using ctrl + f search for “Powered by WordPress” also search for the name of your theme.

    It is preferable to delete the whole div.

    An easier way is to use this plugin: https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/remove-footer-credit/

    Do not forget to back-up your site and create a copy of your footer.php file before editing it.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I tried looking up “powered by wordpress” in footer.php but there is nothing there. I’m not sure if I’m looking in the right place as it only shows the theme footer.
    I’ve tried using the plugin as well but the footer is still there.
    This is the page I need help with: stephaniehoathlete.com.au

    Thank you.
