Do I need to do the Custom Design upgrade? Or could I purchase a premium theme? Or do I need to upgrade to pro? Thanks, Massimo Blog url: http://findingodfindinggod.wordpress.com/ The blog I need help with is findingodfindinggod.wordpress.com.

There is no upgrade you can purchase that allows you to remove footer credit links, etc. 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 September 6, 2012 at 6:31 pm #1002203 acalumaMember How about the “theme by” credit? I’m noticing some blogs don’t have this showing. September 6, 2012 at 6:33 pm #1002204 timethiefmediaMember Not allowed! Report the blogs.
