Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing/Customizing Dashboard Footer

  • 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.

    well! it will work.
    But is there any solution, through which i dont have to change this file every time i update the wordpress?

    any help?

    is there any plugin for this stuff?

    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="">Google</a>';
    add_filter('admin_footer_text', 'dashboard_footer ');

    Hope that helps
