How do you remove the footer credits and show a custom copyright text in the WordPress theme Twenty Fourteen?

Here's a quick guide on the same which will let you add Custom Footer Copyright Texts in the WordPress theme Twenty Fourteen by removing the default Proudly Powered by WordPress credits.

Twenty Fourteen - a responsive magazine website with a sleek, modern design. Feature your favorite homepage content in either a grid or a slider.

With more than 300,000 active installs, it appears to be always readable and good looking either for desktops, tablets or smartphones. The design of the theme is certainly not groundbreaking or out of this world but... it offers a very clean, polished and minimalist design.


Let's get started with the removal of Proudly Powered by WordPress text from the footer of the WordPress theme Twenty Fourteen.


Steps to Add Custom Copyright Text by Removing the Default Footer Credits from the WordPress Theme Twenty Fourteen

Here's the step-to-step guide on the same:

Step 1: Log in to the wp-admin

First of all, log in to the wp-admin of your website and install the theme Twenty Fourteen if you haven't done it already.

Step 2: Open the Theme Editor

Navigate to the Appearance menu from the admin panel and then click on the Editor option i.e. Appearance > Editor.


Step 3: Locate footer.php from the Right Hand Side Navigation Menu

From the right side navigation, look for the file named as footer.php (Theme Footer) and you can edit some codes and make it look as per your desired look.


Step 4: Start Editing the File footer.php

I'm not a coder, but still, it's quite easy to add custom copyright texts by removing the default one.



You will just have to edit codes in the lines 26 and 27 (in the Twenty Fourteen Version 2.2) in the footer.php file.

For Example, if you want to appear your copyright texts as "Copyright © 2018 | YourSite", then you have to replace lines 26 and 27 in your footer.php with the following lines:

<a href="<?php echo esc_url( __( 'http://YourWebsite.com', 'twentyfourteen' ) ); ?>" class="imprint">
<?php printf( __( 'Copyright © 2018 | YourWebsite', 'twentyfourteen' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>

As it is shown in the image below:


Where YourWebsite is the name of your website and http://YourWebsite.com/ is your website address.

That's it.

You're done with adding a custom copyright text to your WordPress theme Twenty Fourteen.

How to Just Hide the Default Footer Credits of WordPress Theme Twenty Fourteen

If you just want to hide the footer credits from the WordPress theme Twenty Fourteen without adding a custom copyright text then that's even easier. Just navigate to Appearance >Customize> Additional CSS and add the following CSS lines:

.site-info{

}

Which should look something like the image below:


That's it.
