How do I remove or change the footer?

  1. I purchased the custom upgrade, but I don't see any of my current CSS. I'm using the Twenty Eleven template. How can I remove or change the footer?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. May I remove credit links such as ‘Blog at’, theme, font, or toolbar links?
    All 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.

    Please read all of the Custom Design FAQs >

    This thread will be moved to the CSS Forum for you.

  3. @Lynktec love the modifications you made to your blog site, I would like to do the same to the footer as you, could you help? I’m not tech savvy at all.

    The site I need help with is


  4. @lynktec is in violation of the Terms of Service as the links by @TT above indicate - - and as such @lynktec's blog can be suspended without further notice for the TOS violation - so @michaelf21 - remove the footer at your own risk


  6. dont really have a problem with the wordpress in footer, its the Theme name. It looks a little cheesy. could you please assist with that.


  7. Terms of Service, #11:

    Attribution. Automattic reserves the right to display attribution links such as ‘Blog at,’ theme author, and font attribution in your blog footer or toolbar. Footer credits and the toolbar may not be altered or removed regardless of upgrades purchased.

  8. sorry I don't want to get anyone in trouble or do anything wrong. I do like WordPress features, but If i'm not happy with the end product, like you said I could go elsewhere. I'll see how it works and if not happy I'll move on.


  9. vs. offers free software that you can install on a web server. You can upload and install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database.

    This support doc explains the various ways to transfer your content to another blog or platform.

    Hire a web host
    Set up a install
    If you’ve registered your domain through and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers. and are completely separate and have separate logins. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

  10. Since I have your ear, how can I modify or delete the gray bar with date and text posted -Uncategorized from my HOME page for each post. I've try everything.

    page in question:


  11. You already have Posts that push the footer down - I believe that not many people really pay much attention to the footer anyway - you have nice pictures - I doubt if anyone will not visit your blog a second time based on the name of the theme - content brings visitors -

  12. @timethief thanks for the info, I'll take it all in consideration on moving forward! I would like my new wordpress to take traffic over from my existing website.

  13. @michaelf21
    You're welcome. Note that Staff can transfer subscribers from a blog to a install, provided you supply both URLs and install and activate the JetPack plugin on the install first.

  14. @auxclass that is a way to look at it, you're right. Much to do about nothing, thanks!

  15. To remove that grey bar, you add this in the CSS editor:

    .indexed.format-video footer.entry-meta {
        display: none;

    Or you can switch to a different theme: most themes don't have such a thing, and on many themes the footer credits are more discreet.

  16. @justpi WOW! like magic love it! much thanks, as I said before I'm not that web technical, creative in other ways. But thanks again. I really like the simplicity of this theme so I guess I can live with the cheesy footer at least for now. One additional question can the white background I use be altered (opacity %) to show background image?



  17. You're welcome.

    To make the bg semi-transparent, add this:

    #page {
        background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.69);

    Change the fourth number to adjust the opacity, change the other three to make it colored. (For example, turning the first number to 220 will give the bg a blue-green hue. Are you familiar with RGB color numbers?)

    Note: this won't work in IE8 or earlier.

  18. Thanks! are you a web designer, social media tech?

  19. With twenty eleven theme is it possible to add my company name/logo in the site title?

    site in question;

    logo type:
    /Users/michael/Desktop/EQ NEW VISION WEB_FV/Trademark/EQ-LOGO_2 copy.png


  20. How do I bring in my existing emails (with gmail) that were hosted by my former domain host? now that I'm hosting with WordPress? need answer before Monday if possible.


  21. You have several options for email - see below for your options

  22. Hi @michaelf21, indeed a logo can be put up where the site title is in Twenty Eleven using CSS. In the area above the header image, you can put an image up to about 125px in height. Does your logo incorporate your site title and description, or do you want it in addition to the text title and description?

    If you can upload the image to your media library and give us the URL of the image, we help you with that. The following would be the basic code although more may need to be added and additional adjustments to margins and padding to get everything aligned and looking the way you want. You will want to replace URL OF IMAGE between the double quote marks with the URL of your uploaded image.

    #branding hgroup {
    background:  url("URL OF IMAGE") no-repeat scroll left top transparent;
    #site-title, #site-description {
    margin-left: 10px;

    The margin for the site title and site description included above is to move the title and description over to the right to make room for the image (assuming you want the image to the left). the 10px is just a placeholder and will need to be adjusted after the image is added.

    Let us know how it goes.

  23. Like Michaelf21, I want to edit my footer (only on the homepage), and all I would like to do is have the footer (and the divider immediately above it) be bottom aligned, so that when a screen is larger, the border and footer won't be in the middle of the page but at the bottom. Any ideas?

  24. Hi @thesacredpath, yes the image incorporates the logo and company name. Having a URL? not sure about that if I upload it to my images here will that solve the Url? I'll do that now. BUT an bigger issue has come up, my video blog are NOT showing up not sure what the issue is? they're were there before but not gone?


  25. @imveryape look at some of the early post here regarding that, they were helpful even though I wanted to modify site for different reasons.


  26. @imveryape: You've added this:

    .home #footer {
        border-top: medium none;
        bottom: 0;
        position: absolute;

    The value "absolute" means in relation to a parent element of the blog, not in relation to the browser window. Replace "absolute" with "fixed". If you want it even lower, you can replace "0" with a negative value, for instance "-20px".

  27. @michaelf21, I'm seeing Vimeo videos on the main page, and on the Video Teasers page at Are you not seeing the videos on your site right now? My first thought, if you are not, would be the possibility of some corrupted cache files. If you are not seeing the videos, clear your browser cache and cookies and then take another look. If you have another browser on your computer, I would also suggest viewing your site with the other browser to see if the issue is related to just that one browser.

    If you upload the image to your media library, a URL (address) will be assigned to that image. If you have uploaded that image already, you can get the URL (file link) by going to Media > Library in your dashboard, locate the image, hover your mouse over the title of the image and click the edit link. In the Save module on the right of that page will be a grey field labeled "File URL". Copy that link and paste it here in this thread and we can help you get it into your site and aligned as you desire.

    If you haven't yet uploaded the image, go to Media > Add New, upload the image and after it uploads and finishes "crunching" click the edit link and you can find the File URL there in the Save module.

    I hope that helps and I'll watch for your reply.

  28. Thanks! @thesacredpath, it was on my end! thanks again for all the assistance.


  29. You are welcome, and let us know if you have further questions.
