    Apperance -> editor -> footer.php -> there you find the link and delete it, preferably along with the <a></a> tags surrounding it.

    ^^ Follow the advise given above next time before creating a new thread for any question.
    For now, check the script in this thread, it might help you in removing the footer links.

    Login to your wordpress dashboard. Click on appearance on the left and then select editor from the drop down menu.Now that you are on the editor, look to your right hand side, there should be a bunch of links, look for footer (footer.php) and click on it.Now just delete or edit out the links that you dont want and save it.Enjoy, if it helped you please click the thanks button :)

    Are these links encrypted with base64 or other?

    Have you checked the functions.php file for a reference of some kind to the footer?

                        $SMTheme->go_func("footer_1");
                    ?>
                    <?php endif; ?>

    Doesn't work, it isn't that simple.
    A security function is coded and it breaks down the template if you try to edit the footer.

    Really? You can't find the linked words in that code yourself?

    When you look at the site one of the links uses the anchor text 'wordpress themes 2012'

    Have you even looked at the code..... ?

    Can't help you there bro. Try hack your functions.php apart in FTP I suppose... Or recreate it in a free theme like Thematic or something... Or just buy the theme like the website suggests...

    I found your post because I was looking for the same answer for this family of themes. The code cannot be changed or removed without breaking the theme, either in the footer, functions or any other file EXCEPT the stylesheet :)
    What you do is add find the element that controls the text in the footer and then add this attribute:
    Code:
    visibility:hidden;
    you can even remove the footer height and border there to make room to...

    add your own footer credits?

    go to the bottom.php file and just above the body tag create a new div and enter your information. create a new id for this div and style to match the old footer, viola!

    a little bit of this, a little bit of that
    The protecting function is probably in functions.php or another file, try searching for it

    Open your index.php file and look for this code:
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Put this on either side of it:
    <!--Our dear footer starts here-->

    &

    <!--Our dear footer ends here-->

    Now open your site in the browser and view the page source.

    Everything in between is the actual footer code...copy it, and replace your footer.php code with it.

    Now edit the footer.php any way you like.
