  2. Hi,

    If I am wrong, someone please correct me. But, no, as far as I know you would need to do more than simply buy the domain. You would need to either move to a self-hosted WordPress site, where you could customize the theme, or if you want to stay on WordPress.com, an upgrade to a premium theme might eliminate this, or if you subscribed to the custom design, you could eliminate it yourself.

  3. "Blog at WordPress.com. | Theme: Oxygen by DevPress." if i buy the domain this will desappear from the page???

    No the footer is required even for VIP hosting which starts at $ 20,000 / year

    the only thing that buying a domain name and mapping it (two actions) changes is the URL displayed when people visit your blog - all the original terms of service still apply.

    We cannot remove footer link credits form free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    May I remove credit links such as ‘Blog at !WordPress.com’, theme, font, or toolbar links?
    All WordPress.com bloggers are required to maintain the credit links, even our VIP bloggers. Please do not hide the footer credits or the toolbar with CSS after purchasing a Custom Design upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

  7. Ok. I will need to buy the design of the blog, Thank you guys! xx

  8. Just to be very clear about this there is no upgrade that you can buy that allows you to remove the footer links.
