I was in the middle of customizing my blog site when I chanced upon a way to add a footer credit on my site. I’m talking about this one right here:
I’d always been curious about this. Why can’t I remove that footer credit by WordPress.com or even edit it? Turns out that my site isn’t a self-hosted one that I can manually put my own footer credit. Yes, I officially have my own domain but WordPress.com is still hosting my site. Also, I’m a user on the Premium plan (which you can start earning through WordAds, an ad program from WordPress.com) and I mistook it for being a self-hosted blog site. It really pays to be a curious bug sometimes, yes? 😀 Now everything’s almost clear to me. Just almost, I know I still have lots to learn.
Despite that little misunderstanding, I didn’t end my road to discovering a way to put that thing I’d always wanted to have. I never imagined it’d be a complete no-brainer. Allow me to share it with you. (⌒ω⌒)
- Go to My Site.
- Click Menus.
- Choose Footer Menu.
- Click + Add new menu.
- Edit the name of the new menu (e.g. Footer) and click ADD NEW ITEM.
- Edit the new item (e.g. your copyright) and click Page. Then choose Home (your site). Click OK.
- Click Save.
Remember, that footer credit by WordPress.com won’t be removed unless you upgrade your plan to Business or join the WordPress.org (self-hosted site).
