    Hello,

    I can’t seem to figure out how to remove this footer. I do not have “Editor” under Appearance, and the CSS editor won’t give me the option to edit this.

    I have upgraded to be able to Customize but that didn’t seem to provide the option either.

    If I can’t remove this, I’ll end up changing the theme to something that will let me.

    Thanks!
    Diana

    The blog I need help with is sugarlesssweetie.com.

    I’m afraid doing that is a ToS violation. Read this section before purchasing the CSS upgrade http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

    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 or alter text or links for the footer credits or the toolbar. Modifying the style of the footer text (i.e. colors and font size) is fine as long as it’s still readable.

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

    Thank you. I read on other posts that these are being removed through the Advanced – Editor option, but wasn’t aware that was a violation.

    Much appreciated,
    Diana

    You’re welcome.

    P.S. Any WordPress.com hosted blogger who is doing this ie. pretending they are the theme designer and are hosting own blog by removing footer credit links is subject to having their blog reported and to Staff suspending it for violating the Terms of Service, and in such cases of blog suspension there is no backup of site data provided. The blog nuked and that is that.

    Just FYI as well, I did put a code in the CSS that made it a touch smaller, so it didn’t look so bulky.

    #colophon {
    padding: 0;}

    Oh I didn’t know you had the custom design upgrade as this thread is in the Support Forum and not the CSS Forum. For CSS support post there please https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization#postform
