Published Categorized as Ecommerce Stores, Website Design

If you’re using the Divi theme and wondering how to remove the “designed by Elegant Themes powered by WordPress” credit in the footer, you’re in the right place.

There are a few solutions to hiding Divi footer credits – well in fact you’re replacing the footer credits in Divi, not just hiding them.

Replace Divi Theme Footer Credits using the Theme Customizer

Simply by going to Theme Customizer > Footer > Bottom Bar

You’re then presented with a box that says “Edit Footer Credits”

Write what you want in this box and the default “designed by Elegant Themes Powered by WordPress” is gone.

The drawback with this approach is that the year in the Copyright doesn’t automatically update.

This means you need to remember to manually update the Copyright year in the footer credits each year.

So there’s another way to replace the default Divi Footer Credits with your own credits whilst also keeping the copyright year up to date all of the time.

Replacing the Divi Footer Copyright with your own and automatically updating the copyright year

To insert a Copyright Footer credit in Divi that automatically updates the copyright year, you’re going to need to use a script that you can copy and paste into the “Add code to the < head > of your blog” box within the Divi Theme Options.

Go to Divi > Theme Options > Integration

Copy this code (and edit for your purposes of course – replace name and year)

var beg_year = 2016; // Year site went live
var this_year = new Date(); // Get current date
var developed_by = ' | Powered by <a href="" target="_blank">Future State Media</a>'; // Developer info
this_year = this_year.getFullYear();
if(this_year > beg_year) {
var year = beg_year + ' - ' + this_year;
} else {
var year = this_year;
var domain = window.location.hostname;
$('#footer-info').html('&copy; ' + year + '' + developed_by );

This will then replace the default Divi and Extra Theme footer credits with your own copyright footer.

It’s as simple as that you’ve now, with Divi removed footer credits and replaced them with your own – Automatically updating copyright year footer credits!
