There probably isn't a simple button you can push (unless there's a special one the theme developer created), but it can most likely be done via some basic theme tweaking.

First, make a child theme. There are lots of tutorials about how to do that.

Second, modify the child theme. Two options for this:

  • hide the message via CSS: Find the CSS class for some enclosing HTML tag (there are several ways to determine that), and hide it via a CSS display:none. One drawback is that there's a risk Google might be unhappy with the page hiding things.
  • customize the footer: Copy footer.php from the parent theme to the child theme. Edit the copy and remove the text you don't want, plus perhaps any enclosing now-empty HTML tags. One drawback is that if you later install an updated version of the parent theme, the child theme will still be using a modified version of the old footer.

Also, the generic WordPress themes have a similar footer message, which many people want to remove. So a web search for 'remove proudly powered by WordPress' should find lots of tutorials. Your situation is probably almost the same.


There are a million ways to do this but this is the easiest.

In the admin, go to Appearance > Custimize > Additional CSS and add the following CSS, then hit publish.

.footer_btm_left {display: none;}

Refresh your site and that text should be gone.

Note: This will remove the text but leave the black box empty. If you want to remove the entire black box add the following CSS.

.site-info {display: none;}
  • where is the text?

  • changing CSS hide the text, but where it is, so I can remove it from the source or change it.
