How to Remove Built With GeneratePress Footer Text? (With & Without Coding)


As you want to learn how to remove Built With GeneratePress text at the theme footer, I will explain several ways to do it. I appreciate your interest in changing the footer of your website to boost your business brand. 

I’ve used this lightweight WordPress theme to design attractive websites for over 5 years. Hence, I can guide you properly in changing the footer credits of the GeneratePress theme. All the methods are simple; you can do it by yourself. 

Let’s get into the topic! 

Method 1 – Use Customize Option In Premium Version

So, how to change GeneratePress Footer Copyright credits? Here is the quick answer! 

I suggest you buy the premium version of the GeneratePress theme to get the job done easily. If you are using the free version, look at the comparison, GeneratePress Free Vs Premium, so that you will identify the qualities of the paid version. 

Let’s come to the step-by-step process to modify the footer text of GP WordPress theme! 

Step 1: Visit WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Customize 


Step 2: Now, Go to Layout > Footer


Step 3: You can see the “Copyright” section and write the text you want there. 


Take the example of my blog! 

I have written – © 2016 – 2024 WPGLOSSY All Rights Reserved.

Use the same code shown in the above image, and don’t forget to replace my details with your desired text. 

Adding the HTML code to include your site link at the Footer is possible. If you want to do it, use the code below in the “Copyright” footer section. 


<p>© 2016 - 2024 <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">WPGLOSSY</a>  All Rights Reserved</p>

function tu_custom_copyright() { 


© 2016 - 2024 WPGLOSSY All Rights Reserved



Note – Change the copyright text to match your requirements in the above code. 

Let me tell you how to add the code to the function file!

Step 3: Visit WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Theme File Editor


Step 4: Select the Theme to edit (GeneratePress child theme). Click the Theme function.php file, paste the code given above, and hit “Update File” like the screenshot below.  


Method 3: Use Footer Function code In GeneratePress Parent Theme

This method is the same as the previous one. Instead of a child theme, we will use the parent theme to add the codes in the theme function.php file (Do the same as above).

Note – I don’t recommend this method because you must redo this process whenever you update the theme.

Footer customization has several benefits!

  • An uncluttered footer can serve as a navigator. It will improve the user experience. 
  • Your credibility will be visible when the site bottom is designed with the awards or testimonials. 
  • Adding the important links at the end of your site would help the search engines index and understand your content effectively. 
  • This closing area can include your call-to-actions or exclusive offers to encourage readers to take action.
