How To Remove ‘Designed By WooThemes’ from WooThemes Footer?

WooThemes is one of my favourite WordPress premium themes. It’s great collection of amazing WordPress themes offered in a reasonable price plan. But, some people don’t like to show the WooThemes credit in the footer.
How To Remove Designed By WooThemes from WooThemes Footer?

Steps to Remove the WooThemes Credit Link from Blog Footer

  • Log in to your web hosting using any FTP software.
  • Go to wp-content/themes/ and find your WooTheme directory.
  • Download the footer.php file and open with any text editor; you can use notepad in Windows and gedit in Linux.
  • Go to line 36 and find the following piece of text:
<?php _e('Designed by', 'woothemes') ?>
<a href=""><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/woothemes.png" width="87" height="21" alt="Woo Themes" />
  • Remove the code, save the file and upload to web server.

That’s it. You should have successfully removed the credit link.

      I have the latest Woo Canvas theme as of May 2013 (Canvas Version 5.2.5). The above did not work for me either.
      This is what worked:
      Follow the same instructions as above, but find the area below and remove ONLY what is shown IN BOLD type below:
