Remove ‘Theme by Colorlib Powered by WordPress’

How do I remove that text?

I tried removing: function sparkling_footer_info() {
global $sparkling_footer_info;
printf( esc_html__( ‘Theme by %1$s Powered by %2$s’, ‘sparkling’ ) , ‘Colorlib’, ‘WordPress’);

but then my footer shows some error.

Please help.

Hello??? Please tell me

Hi @paraleldream,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can try removing this by using the attached custom child theme of Sparkling theme that contains some custom code.

Best Regards,

Hello Movin,

We use your great sparkling theme for our new website and we were wondering wether or not we are allowed to remove the " sparkling Theme by Colorlib Powered by WordPress" line from the footer.
Looking at your answer to paraleldreams’ question I suppose it is totally legal to not mention you as the author of the Theme and to remove that line from the page entirely.
Is that true and is it true also for business websites?
Is there any page about license stuff I could refer to?


Yes it is legal to remove the credit line from the footer of the site.
