WordPress.com does require that you keep the footer credit links in tact without changing them. I can help you add add a statement above or below the footer credits or help you change the way they look in the design if that’s helpful.
Thanks. By footer credits do you mean the WordPress stuff? I was referring to the way that a site title is displayed at the bottom of pages as a huge heading. It looks bad and so far I’ve had a to avoid titling my site to make it disappear.
