How to remove “Powered by WordPress”?

Often when WordPress users choose one of the default WordPress themes as the front end of their website, they want to remove the “Powered by WordPress” text from the footer.

One easy solution that doesn’t require any CSS, HTML, child theme or even to edit the original theme is to use our Remove “Powered by WordPress” plugin which works for all default WordPress themes including …

  • Twenty Ten
  • Twenty Eleven
  • Twenty Twelve
  • Twenty Thirteen
  • Twenty Fourteen
  • Twenty Fifteen
  • Twenty Sixteen
  • Twenty Seventeen
  • Twenty Nineteen
  • Twenty Twenty

We will also be updating the plugin to work with the WordPress Twenty Twenty One theme when it is released (with WordPress v5.6) hopefully later this year!

Installing Remove “Powered by WordPress” plugin is super easy, just go to “Dashboard – Plugins – Add New” and search for “remove powered”. When you see the plugin click “Install Now” and then “Activate” once the installation has finished. Done!

This feature is also built into our “Options for” range of plugins which have loads and loads of additional customisations for your website …
