Twenty Twelve is now the default theme when WordPress is installed for the first time. As is always the case with the default theme, it has the “Proudly powered by WordPress” credit in the footer. This tends to irritate people and I am often asked if it can be removed.
The answer is ‘yes’ it certainly can, but it’s not obvious how to do it.
High resolution Video
My video tutorial below shows you how you can remove “Proudly powered by WordPress” easily and quickly.
Please note the video has been recorded in hi-resolution, so it may take a few seconds to ‘kick in’. It’s worth the wait! 🙂
You can watch it in full screen by hovering over the player and clicking on the bottom right hand corner. Clicking ‘esc’ will close it and take you back to this page.
If you find the video useful I would really appreciate you adding your comments at the bottom of this page.
If, after watching the video, you are still unsure about how to remove the credit or don’t feel confident about editing the file, Davco Media can remove it for you for only £9 (approximately $14.50 USD). There is more information about this service here.
