This post is about how to edit or remove Proudly Powered By WordPress Twenty Fourteen child theme in your footer, see another tips of this default theme, about removing left sidebar here. It should work with any themes.
I have noticed some people want to know how to remove powered by wordpress link from their footers especially if they use Twenty Fourteen default theme.
Removing this link is allowed, however that’s the only way we can give WordPress appreciation as it’s a free great blogging platform or software, so leaving their link isn’t bad, however removing or editing it is also allowed.
The drawback of having this Proudly Powered By WordPress link is like enabling spammers to easily find blogs powered by WordPress including, our sites. They do have software that can detect our page source like “Proudly Powered by WordPress” in they keywords, and will display any sites that have this link.
I do have this software too, that’s why I know how it works.
