Remove ‘Powered By’ in Footer of Septera Theme by CryoutCreations

If you make this edit, please understand that you should either pay Cryout Creations $25 for support (and CC’s removal of their part of this “Powered By WordPress” footer segment), or please insert authoring credit for Cryout Creations elsewhere on your website for their development of this Septera theme.

First, on you website, locate the core.php file in the path wp-content/themes/septera/includes/

Next, create a backup of the original core.php file by copying this file to a location outside your website.  Then, come back and make your changes to the core.php file that is live online from your website. Understand that If you do not self-host your website on you own server, thus having direct access to the server file system and this core.php file, then you will likely need to access it via ftp to make a backup, perform the edit, and overwrite the original online file with your edited file.

You can edit the core.php file using a good text editor, such as the Notepad++ editor.  In core.php first locate the Footer Hook section from lines 235 to 248.  Insert //Rem at the beginning of those certain 4 lines (to disable them) as shown below:

/**
* Footer Hook
*/
add_action( ‘cryout_master_footer_hook’, ‘septera_master_footer’ );
function septera_master_footer() {
$septera_theme = wp_get_theme();
do_action( ‘cryout_footer_hook’ );
echo ‘<div id=”footer-separator”></div>’;
echo ‘<div id=”site-copyright”>’ . wp_kses_post( cryout_get_option( ‘septera_copyright’ ) ) . ‘</div>’;
//REM echo ‘<div style=”display:block;float:right;clear: right;font-size: .85em;font-weight: bold; text-transform: uppercase;”>’ . __( “Powered by”, “septera” ) .
//REM ‘<a target=”_blank” href=”‘ . esc_html( $septera_theme->get( ‘ThemeURI’ ) ) . ‘” title=”‘;
//REM echo ‘Septera WordPress Theme by ‘ . ‘Cryout Creations”> ‘ . ‘Septera’ .'</a> &amp; <a target=”_blank” href=”‘ . “http://wordpress.org/”;
//REM echo ‘” title=”‘ . __( “Semantic Personal Publishing Platform”, “septera”) . ‘”> ‘ . sprintf( ” %s.”, “WordPress” ) . ‘</a></div>’;
}

footer hook in core.php

I tried using a child theme to make this change, but I was having some problems making it work.  This may have something to do with the priority of functions loading (i.e. the order in which functions are loading) between the child and parent themes. I changed some priorities in the add_actions and do_action of the child theme, but to no avail.  Let me know if you figure it out.  Send comments.  sheldon @ sheldonsblog.com.

Alternative way to make the same change.   You could also edit the core.php theme file from within the WordPress administrative dashboard.  On the dashboard menu, point at “Appearance” and select “Editor.”  Scroll down the file list on the right side of the editor page and select “core.php.”  //REM out the same 4 lines in the footer hook section as shown in the following screen image.  And click the update save button to save your changes.

How to Customize the Footer in WordPress Twenty Seventeen Theme

In the WordPress Admininstrator’s dashboard, select >Appearance, select >Editor, and select >footer.php from the list on the right margin.

Edit the footer.php file.

Locate this part of the footer.php file:

get_template_part( ‘template-parts/footer/site’, ‘info’ );
?>
</div><!– .wrap –>

Change that part as follows:

Insert “//” at the beginning of the “get_template_part” line in order to comment-out this line. Next, insert the 4 lines shown below between the “?>” line and the </div><!– .wrap –> line.

//get_template_part( ‘template-parts/footer/site’, ‘info’ );
?>
<div class=”site-info”>
<a href=”https://wordpress.org/”>Copyright 2017, Your site name</a>
</div>
</div><!– .wrap –>

Customize by fixing the URL — http://www.yoursitedomain.com/  and Your site name.

Save your changes / update / the footer.php file.

Note:  Your modifications will likely be overwritten in the next WordPress version update.  That’s okay.  And, it might be easier to again edit the footer.php after the version update rather than trying to figure out how to use a child theme that would preserve your modifications from being overwritten due to a version update.
