Support » Fixing WordPress » Twenty Thirteen Footer Question

  • Hi there,

    I like the new theme. Twenty Thirteen. But I want to remove the “proudly powered by WordPress” footer link and change it to “Copyright (c) 2013” instead.

    How do I do that?

    In other words, where did Appearance->Editor go?

    Appearance->Editor is not required by all themes 🙂

    Twenty Thirteen uses Appearance -> Customize but no, you cannot remove the powered by that I can see.

    Looks to be coded in here:

    So you maybe able to use the hook to remove it.

    Appearance > Editor should be visible unless you have something else disabling it. I’m running Twenty Thirteen on a fresh install and it’s there for me.

    Thanks to both of you.

    Not sure what I could be doing that’s hiding Appearance->Editor but I can’t seem to see it, I see Appearance->Customize.

    I might see if I can’t change it from cPanel.

    This may not be proper coding, but this solution worked for me. Change this code in footer.php

    <?php do_action( 'twentythirteen_credits' ); ?>
     <a href="<?php echo esc_url( __( '', 'twentythirteen' ) ); ?>" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'twentythirteen' ); ?>"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'twentythirteen' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>

    to this code (replace with your site info)

    <?php do_action( 'twentythirteen_credits' ); ?>
     <a href="YOUR SITE URL HERE" title="YOUR SITE TITLE HERE"><?php printf( __( 'YOUR COPYRIGHT INFORMATION HERE', 'twentythirteen' ), '' ); ?></a>

    My previous comment should state to make changes in child theme footer.php, 😛
    If you do not use a child theme to make changes to CSS, template, php. etc. files you will most likely be very, very sorry you didn’t. Believe me, I speak from experience.

    Thanks for your help. That was extremely helpful.

    Sure, glad it worked for you 🙂

    My guess is you don’t want your copyright to be hyperlinked. The WordPress one was linked since it took you to the main WP site. So, the following code (in your child theme’s footer.php file) should work just fine. It also gets rid of hard-coding your site’s name, as well keeps the copyright current to “today’s” year.

    <?php do_action( 'twentythirteen_credits' ); ?>
    <?php echo 'Copyright &copy; ' . date("Y") . ' ' . get_bloginfo('name'); ?>


    Fabulous. Worked for me! Thanks. I did want my copyright hyperlinked (to my company site) and it is great!

    Hi…How can I get the footer to appear at the bottom of the page, in Firefox and Safari, like it does in Chrome?


    Here is the URL:

    Also, not sure how it looks in IE.


    @cx1designs – please start your own thread as per:

    LOL I just logged out of WordPress, and now the footer doesn’t appear at the bottom in Chrome, either. Not sure what position to set it to, in the CSS.

    Start your own thread if you want help with that.

    Since this is a question about the Twenty Thirteen Theme Footer, and I figured it was good to post here, to simply things.
