Changing the credits/copyright in free themes

Hi Support Team,

Someone told me that in your free themes, it is not allowed to replace the credits (f.e.):

Powered by WordPress | Theme: Astrid by aThemes.

by my own credits (f.e.):

© 2017 Simad Administratie en Interim Management | powered by zaaldesign

Is this true? I cold not find any information about this in your terms

Pls. clarify.

Hi there,

Actually, you can remove or replace the footer credit of theme.
I know there is no option to do that from the theme but you can use wordpress plugin, such as Footer Putter, Footer Credit, etc.


Dear All,

I’ve changed my footer credit in the past to British Consulting Group 2017 by using the Real-Time Find and Replace Plugin and changing the text in footer.php from:

Proudly powered by WordPress
<span class=“sep”> | </span>
Theme: Sydney by aThemes.

to: © The British Consulting Group 2017

Now I have translated my website to spanish using polylang and the footer credit in the spanish pages have changed to: Creado con WordPress | Tema: Sydney por aThemes.

I don’t know where in the ftp those informations are located. They don’t appear anywhere in my child’s theme.

How may I fix this?
My website is

Kind Regards,
