How to Remove the Footer Credit in a Free Blogger Theme

In this article, we will show you how to remove the footer credit in a free Blogger theme.

Many free themes come with a credit link to the original website in the footer, and if you try to remove it, it will automatically redirect to the original website.

However, with a few simple steps, you can easily remove the footer credit and add your own.

Easy Steps to Remove Footer Credit in Blogger

  • Log in to Blogger.
  • Go to Theme.

  • Apply changes.

Note: Before you start, please save a copy of your theme file, just to be safe. It’s like wearing a helmet while biking – it might not be needed, but it’s a good idea to have one just in case!

To add your own footer credit, go back to the theme editor and click on “Edit HTML.” Again press CTRL + F and search “Design by” and press Enter.

Now add your own footer code.

If you don’t have your own then use this code.

<div style='font-size:1px; opacity:0;'>
<!--Original copyright Link Here-->

Save the changes.
