How to remove the link to WordPress from the footer

As standard, A WordPress theme includes a link back to WordPress in the footer. This isn’t always desirable, especially if you have a business website. So how do you remove this?

Login to your WordPress dashboard and go to…

Appearance > Editor > Footer.php (see image below)

Locate and delete the text that says

<a href=”<?php echo esc_url( __( ‘’, ‘twentytwelve’ ) ); ?>” title=”<?php esc_attr_e( ‘Semantic Personal Publishing Platform’, ‘twentytwelve’ ); ?>”><?php printf( __( ‘Proudly powered by %s’, ‘twentytwelve’ ), ‘WordPress’ ); ?></a>

Some sites may say something different, you are looking to delete everything between the opening…

<a href and the closing </a>

This is a common error and its easy to fix.
You normally see this after adding a plugin or new theme and there just isn’t enough memory. To fix this simply create a file in notepad and add this line into it

Save this as php.ini
Now upload this to your wp-admin folder
Thats it, the error is fixed.
