How to Remove the Footer Attribution Link from the Thesis WordPress Theme

by Michael on September 17, 2009 · 1 comment

If you’re using the Thesis WordPress theme and are looking for information on how to remove the attribution link from the footer, then you’ve come to the right place. But first, a few words about whether or not you should remove the link…

Who can remove the Thesis attribution link?

Annoyingly, you’re only allowed to remove this link if you purchased the “Developer’s Option.” If you only purchased the “Personal Option,” you’re supposed to leave the link in place. I don’t agree with the policy — after all, if you buy it you should be able to customize it — but they didn’t ask me for my opinion.

How do you remove the Thesis attribution link?

If you did purchase the “Developer’s Option,” then it’s very easy to remove the link. Simply add the following bit of code to your custom_functions.php file:

remove_action('thesis_hook_footer', 'thesis_attribution');

That’s it. You should now be rockin’ an attribution-free footer.

Just put it in custom_functions.php (NOT the custom css file). Also be sure that you renamed the custom folder as instructed when you set up your site, and you need to tell it that you’re using the custom files (check the box for custom stylesheet on the Thesis Design Options tab). Aside from that, I’m not sure what to recommend.
