Remove Footer Credit


Remove or replace footer credits (or any text or HTML in page) before page is rendered. With this plugin there is no need to modify code such as footer.php which if done incorrectly can cause your site to break or new theme updates will stomp over your changes requiring you to remove footer credits on each update.

This plugin has very minimal options to keep things simple and easier to use. You enter the text or HTML that you would like to find in one text box and the text or HTML that you would like to replace in another text box (or nothing to remove).

After a couple of attempts we managed to find a solution. Big thanks to Mihaela for this one!

I've had some difficulties getting the plugin to work, but I used their support, got an email within hours and they helped me to make it work. Very polite as well. Thanks Mihaela!

Edit: Originally gave this plugin one-star because I had a serious problem. I've left the original review below so that others can avoid the same problem + can see the creator/author's process of customer support. She reached out and was superbly helpful, investing her own time to helping me. I reinstalled the plugin and the footer is gone. I really appreciate your time Mihaela. Thanks. Original review untouched: --- Wanted to remove text that said "Powered by WordPress and Theme Name." Only way to remove the text is to write one word per line, where I wrote: Powered by Wordpress and Theme Name Result was the "." at the end was still visible on my footer. So I went back and added it to the next line as: Powered by Wordpress and Theme Name . And it broke my site. I was literally paralyzed. Had no way of removing the plugin from my computer because the site was disrupted. On my mobile, I opened up the WordPress app and manually removed the plugin from there. First time I've ever manipulating a plugin from the mobile device. And after it was gone my site was back up. One of those unbelievable moments where your heart drops. Do not download this plugin. Why in the world adding a "." would break your site is beyond me. Even more ironic/hilarious that the description of the plugin explicitly says it won't break your site.

Very good, straightforward plugin: does the job it's meant to do. Also, good support. I had problems initially, but i found out the issue was with my host. Once i straightened that out, the plugin worked fine. Thank you for a free plugin that's both efficient and simple.

After days of inspection and removing other plugins I found out the the suspect is this plugin. After enabling this plugin all data sent to Google Analytics stops. It interferes with the coding of the pages.

I was skeptical about this plugin at first. It didn't appear properly coz I have black background and black text so I could not see it. But the text editor allowed me to changed the color and viola! It shows exactly the footer as I wanted to look. No more wordpress or elegant theme link. Great plugin! Rigor McCakeren
