    There should be an option in the settings.

    You can remove it from the core file. Look for footer.php and then search for Powered by CTR theme word, remove the text with anchor tag and your problem would be solved.

    Basically what he said. Go to wp-content -> themes -> your theme. There look for the file named footer.php; it could be in a lib folder.

    Good luck.

    It is definitely in the settings. There is a box you can check to disable that.

    I had to do this a little while back.

    The settings does not work.

    You have to go to appearance - editor - footer and find it there.

    You don't really have to go to wp-contents --> theme -- > your theme, you can edit your themes via FTP, which is much more advisable :)

    EASY way, the Solution:

    Click CTR Theme Tab >General Site Options>

    Scroll down and you will see txt and a checkbox, tick it
    Text says " Disable CTR Theme footer link"

    Then ur done, easy

    if you can't edit a wordpress footer you gotta ask yourself "Is IM really for me?"

    people out there need dishes washed and holes dug all the time

    Actually laughed out loud at the part in bold!. As others have said you should be able to remove it from the themes options. If not edit the footer.php file, it should be in there.

    As partymarty said, if you can't figure out how to do basic WP editing on your own, you should question if IM is for you. - That's not a dig, just being honest.

    I'll be the first to admit I was being a bit of a smart arse there. But I was also being brutally honest. To be successful at IM you really need to know your tools well, and wordpress is generally a pretty important tool.

    You will encounter far more complicated problems almost daily as an IM'er than how to edit a WP footer.

    If you can't remove footer links via settings or theme editor consider doing it via ftp. Sometimes theme authors put some kind of protection to prevent link removing. You will see inside ftp there are 2 versions of the theme. When you're trying to edit it via theme editor inside wp admin you actually edit not the active version of the theme.
