Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing footer in new version of WordPress

  • Kat@Scotland


    I wonder if anyone can help. I am trying to see if it is possible to remove the “powered by wordpress” text in the footer (and to be able to replace with my own would be an added bonus) on the Twenty Eleven theme.

    I don’t have CSS, so can only use what is available on the free version. I have trawled through other posts and googled my query, but everything I have found refers to, what I assume is an older version of wordpress (I am very new to this website!) or talking about CSS and child themes (no idea what they are!).

    As a sidenote – I am not sure what version of WordPress I am using but I only signed up about three weeks ago so whatever is the most recent is probably it!

    Any help is much appreciated 🙂

    You’re using 3.5.2 most likely.

    It’s in your wp-admin >> appearances >> editor >> footer.php



    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I don’t appear to have the “editor” and “footer” sections under appearance. Is this the layout you are thinking I have: (shows at 0.45 seconds)? This is the online help I have found but doesn’t work with what I am using. If it helps work out the version, my toolbar on the left is a much darker grey in colour, rather than the light grey of the version on the youtube video! I apologise for my lack of technical knowledge to be able to provide any proper info that would probably be a lot more use here!
