    Hey, so I have hundreds of sites all built on wordpress, they are for the most part set up nice however I have bought many many themes and for the most part they have footer links to the theme provider.


    I am not asking if there is a way to edit a footer, sure I know that and could work through hundreds of sites over the next few months but I am really trying to avoid that, does anyone know of a plugin (premium is fine) that will simply remove / wipe and perhaps even replace the footers on any theme?


    The main reason I ask is to remove footprint, for example my sites built on the "elegant themes" lose a ton of bandwidth due to spammers, SB, SER (US!)


    Any tips?

    This can be done very easily with CSS and by using only 1 line of code.

    For elegant themes you may add the following code into your css tab to remove the footer.
    Code:
     #footer-info {display:none;}

    I do all of mine manually and is the first thing I do when I start a new site. I just remove the code in the footer and replace with my standard wording which I have saved in Notepad.

    This is a quick tip, and although you have hundred of websites, this can be applied very fast.
