    Has wordpress changed something with their footer? The "powered by wordpress" has shown up on all my sites and I can't find footer.php to get rid of it. Anyone have any luck fixing this?

    Also, would someone mind helping with the CSS on one of my sites? PM me if you are willing. I'd be eternally grateful.

    I suggest an easiest way.
    1. Download a notapad or ultraedit.
    2. Open the database with the software.
    3. Find the text and replace.

    It may be shows with a PHP variable in the footer. Try look for the div that may contain it, or delete everything in the footer.php and see if that gets rid of it and then replace it all, reducing the code until you find it.

    That's the thing. It's just the footer text it added a whole new section. And there isn't a footer.php.

    Here's a site that does something like mine (not mine though). http://beemersbeercheese.com/

    Same new section, formatting, and wording. It just showed up on all my sites.

    If you are using StyleShop theme like the above site, there should be an option on the Theme control panel to edit the footer. All Elegantthemes has that option :)

    You can try using css to hide it - inspect the certain element, and just use display none on it.

    What theme are you using? Check your functions.php. I know some better themes allow you to change options like the footer text, without editing theme files, so check your settings too.

    its hard to help you if you can't provide the Theme Name you are using. premium themes have different theme structure. they still have footer.php file but it is probably not in the theme root directory, this is mostly the cases for those theme that has advance features, and its also a very worst idea to edit the file directly if the theme is not in simple structure as you might loss some of the theme features.

    if you know a little bit of web development and CSS, use "Inspect Element" and check the element holder of the Content you wanted to git rid off.

    in the url you provided, its this one



    <div id="footer-bottom"><p id="copyright">Designed by <a href="#" title="Premium WordPress Themes">Elegant Themes</a> | Powered by <a href="#">WordPress</a></p></div>

    Now, go ahead and find somewhere you can add a CSS globaly.

    and add something like this.

    #footer-bottom {
    display: none;
    }

    or

    #copyright {
    display: none;
    }

    hope it helps

    Exactly what he is saying. The display none thing is the easiest way to go.
    However most coders won't think it's very 'clean'. What you could do
    is look at the HTML and find the part which contains the footer then just look
    through your .php files till you find it with ctrl + f.

    I wouldn't recommend removing the 'designed by' thingy though since
    that is the only thing giving the author credit for all his work..
    I mean I wouldn't feel good if I spend hours on creating a nice theme
    and someone takes my credit away like that.

    However it's your decision :).

    Goodluck!
