Removing/Customizing Dashboard Footer (6 posts)

    By default WP Dashboard will show the following text in footer:

    Thank you for creating with WordPress. | Documentation | Feedback

    Version 2.8.4

    I want to remove it as I am working on a membership site and dont want my users to see this.
    Rather if there is a plug in or solution that will let me customize the dashboard footer, I would love it.
    I will prefer some thing which keeps working even after WP update.

    The file containing the footer is actually just called wp-admin/admin-footer.php

    You can modify that file as you see fit to change the wording or remove it altogether.

    To change the wording on the footer use the following in your themes functions.php file

    if (! function_exists('dashboard_footer ') ){
    function dashboard_footer () {
    echo 'This is my awesome new footer text!
    <a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>';
    add_filter('admin_footer_text', 'dashboard_footer ');

    Hope that helps
