This will take you less than 2min to get it done, its not something hard, i love this method most but there are other method but this is the best to get it removed.

  • Login your wordpress dashboard
  • Locate Appearance (left sidebar) >> Editor
  • From the editor locate the theme navigation sidebar that expands the theme
  • Click Footer.php or you if you using your cpanel you can find this file in your /wp-content/themes/your theme/footer.php

Click the text editor  and the footer credit text looks like “Powered by” you can use the search by pressing CTRL +F on your keyboard, and you will need to remove that section.

The default theme for WordPress twenty fifteen, the code looks like this:

<div class=”site-info”>



* Fires before the Twenty Fifteen footer text for footer customization.


* @since Twenty Fifteen 1.0


do_action( ‘twentyfifteen_credits’ );


<a href=”<?php echoesc_url(__(‘’,’twentyfifteen’) ); ?>”><?php printf( __(‘Proudly powered by %s’, ‘twentyfifteen’ ), ‘WordPress’ ); ?></a>

</div><!– .site-info –>
