    How do I get rid of the smiley face at the bottom and move the “WordPress…Theme…Fonts…etc.” to the very bottom?

    Thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is kapansa.wordpress.com.

    The smiley is actually the way WordPress.com tracks your site visitors. http://en.support.wordpress.com/smiley-on-your-blog/

    But I see you’ve posted this in the CSS Customization forum. While you shouldn’t remove the stats tracker, perhaps someone more knowledgeable with CSS can assist with changing its position.

    This will hide the stats smiley, but do be aware that staff have said in the past that removing it could affect your stats.

    #wpstats {
    display: none;
    }

    Just a thought, what about changing the colour of the smiley so it’s transparent instead of removed. Stats are important to me, I’m not touching it.

    Good idea. I’m with you. There’s no way I would remove it. Stats are important. Anyway, it’s tiny and it’s unlikely that any of my visitors even notice it.

    What are the smiley faces for? What stats?

    Good. :) It’s important to learn how to use the support documentation. The search box here http://en.support.wordpress.com provides results from the support docs and from forum threads.

    @shimworld, I thought about that, but it’s an image.

    In some themes you can mask it via coding in a text widget (but not in the themes kapansa and shimworld are using).
