Simple one for today, how to remove Proudly powered by WordPress from the new TwentySeventeen theme footer.
I am using basic WordPress as a wire-framing tool – which it is quite good for.
So, just downloaded and installed the latest WordPress 4.7 version
Opened up mysql and added a database and user:
mysql -uroot -p
create database my_db;
CREATE USER 'new_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'pwd***';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON my_db.* TO 'new_user'@'localhost';
Did the WordPress install dance.
Added a load of pages and menus – all looking good.
Apart from an annoying ‘Proudly powered by WordPress’ in the footer.
And it’s in a new place for the TwentySeventeen theme just to keep us guessing.
grep -rn "Proudly " ./*
Finds it here
Tucked away in site-info.php
So bit of nano editing and we’re done.
That’s it for today ….
