How to modify the “Proudly powered by WordPress” footer…

Have you ever wondered if the “Proudly powered by WordPress” footer could be changed to some more individual?

I think I got a solution. Well, at least temporarily – until new Updates are applied, or I found a new “How to … clone a theme” entry in my brain 😉

To remove the text in the footer you will need to go to the footer.php file in the theme folder (wp-content/themes/<theme-name> and modify the lines …

<div class=”site-info”>
<?php do_action( ‘twentythirteen_credits’ ); ?>
<a href=”<?php echo esc_url( __( ‘http://wordpress.org/’, ‘twentythirteen’ ) ); ?>” title=”<?php esc_attr_e( ‘Semantic Personal Publishing Platform’, ‘twentythirteen’ ); ?>”><?php printf( __( ‘Proudly powered by %s’, ‘twentythirteen’ ), ‘WordPress’ ); ?></a>
</div><!– .site-info –>

Keep you updated …

Cheers
