If you are using the StudioPress Genesis Framework for your WordPress site, you may want to completely remove the Footer Credits and Return to Top link from your footer. Just add this WordPress Code Snippet to the functions.php file in your current WordPress theme in order to easily remove the entire footer generated by Genesis. Your Footer Widgets will still work correctly.
/** * Remove Genesis Footer Credits and Return to Top Text * * @author WPSnacks.com * @link http://www.wpsnacks.com */ remove_action( 'genesis_footer', 'genesis_do_footer' );
As mentioned above, this will completely remove both the Return to Top text link as well as the Genesis Footer Credits from your footer and your Footer Widgets will still work correctly. Hope this helps, enjoy!
