A customer called me saying he was creating an online store for selling cool hats online. The customer was using the default Storefront theme in WordPress.

I have some experience setting up online stores. After setting up some products, permalinks and etc. We saw the theme was still displaying the default credit footer “Built with Storefront & WooCommerce”. We wanted to remove it. There are many ways to do this including plugins. I tend to stay away from installing too many plugins in WordPress – specially when the solution is simple.

I found the two simplest ways to remove the default storefront footer credits:

  1. Using CSS. Navigate to your WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Customize and go to Additional CSS tab add the following CSS code:
.site-info a {
display: none;
  1. Using PHP code. Enter the below in your function.php file in your theme:
remove_action(‘storefront_footer’, ‘storefront_credit’,20);

Hope this is helpful. Contact me if you have any questions. Thanks!
