This tutorial goes over how to remove “Powered by WordPress” from the footer of a WordPress theme. We will use the child theme we created in the last tutorial.
If you want to follow along, you will need to create a WordPress child theme first.
Remove Powered by WordPress in Footer
The video goes over the exact steps to customize the footer of your parent theme with a child theme. The first thing you want to do is create the same directory structure of the parent theme in your child theme. This means you need to create
template-parts/footer in your child theme.
Once you have those directories created, simply copy the
site-info.php file and paste it into your new footer directory (
template-parts/footer) in the child theme.
Now that you have the
site-info.php file in your child theme, open the file in a text editor and make any edits/additions that you would like to the file. Once the file is saved, you will notice your child theme file will now be used instead of the parent theme file.
