If you are wondering about how to remove or edit powered by or copyright texts, so i am showing you a simple way to remove this step by step.

Let’s proceed,

Enable/Disable Through Customizer

Well, I have seen that most of the WordPress themes have options to show/hide for powered text in the footer. But usually, these features is available only on the premium version. so If you are using the premium version, usually you can check these options inside Appearance > Customize and you can see some section of Footer Section or similar.
If there are not any options to hide or add your own powered by text, you can check the below-mentioned steps.

Easy Solution – Hide that section via custom CSS

One of the easiest methods to hide powered by text is custom CSS. Follow the below-mentioned steps to add custom CSS to your website.

  1. Login to your WordPress dashboard as an Admin
  2. Scroll over ‘Appearance’ and then click on the ‘Customize’ menu
  3. Go to the Additional CSS section of the customizer.
  4. Add the given below CSS codes there

Hope, this css code will help to hide the powered by text from the footer.

Removing/Editing via footer.php file

so if that CSS method doesn’t work for you then you can take this step as well. One of the best methods to customize powered by text is via footer.php file. Almost every WordPress theme has a footer.php file on the theme root folder. You can either customize the foooter.php file and upload that file on the server or you can directly edit via Appearance > Editor.

Follow the below-mentioned steps to edit footer.php file via admin panel.

  • Login to your WordPress dashboard as an Admin
  • Scroll over ‘Appearance’ and then click on the ‘Editor’ menu
  • Select the menu which you want to edit from Select theme to edit:  from a top right corner.
  • Click on Theme Footer ( footer.php ) file.
  • Edit the code as shown in the below image.

If you are customizing the twentyseventeen theme, site info is in another template file. Check template-parts/footer/site-info.php of theme file. You will see the similar code in below screenshot.

Instead of customizing the parent theme directly, we recommend you customize the theme with Child Theme.
