Remove Footer Credit


Remove or replace footer credits (or any text or HTML in page) before page is rendered. With this plugin there is no need to modify code such as footer.php which if done incorrectly can cause your site to break or new theme updates will stomp over your changes requiring you to remove footer credits on each update.

This plugin has very minimal options to keep things simple and easier to use. You enter the text or HTML that you would like to find in one text box and the text or HTML that you would like to replace in another text box (or nothing to remove). Go here to view my step by step tutorial with screenshots and video.

El plugin funciona tal como lo dicen los creadores del mismo, al principio no logré hacerlo funcionar adecuadamente, por lo que me contacté con el soporte. Mihaela me envió un correo con las instrucciones necesarias para solucionarlo, además de ofrecer su ayuda para más preguntas según corresponda. Estoy muy agradecido por el desarrollo y funcionamiento de este plugin. Saludos desde Chile.

I added this plugin as I couldn't remove my out the box footer, even when entering the details in the customize css folder. The Remove Footer Credit plugin didn't seem to work straight away, flushing the cache I checked an hour later and my personalised footer popped up. Thank you

I recently downloaded this plugin in the hopes that it can remove the annoying footer credit placed by my theme. At first, I was confused because it did not work, but after contacting support, she was able to help me remove the footer credit. The response times were fast and I was able to remove the footer credit in a matter of hours! To the creators of this plugin, keep it up! and to everyone who is looking to try this plugin, I highly recommend it!
