Remove the “Proudly powered by WordPress” in WordPress Footer

Objective

To remove the “Proudly Powered by WordPress” link in the footer of a WordPress theme.

Solution

Add this CSS code to your website:

.site-info{display: none;}

  • Log in to your WordPress Dashboard, then go to Appearance -> Customize.
  • Click on Additional CSS.
  • Add the code .site-info{display: none;} in the CSS box to hide the link.
  • Press the Publish button in order for the change to be implemented.

The “Proudly powered by WordPress” link should disappear.

However, a more complete solution is to use a child theme so that your modifications remain persistent across theme updates. Follow the steps in this post for creating a child theme for a WordPress supplied theme.
