Want to change the WordPress admin footer text?

February 14th, 2013

When you log into the WordPress admin dashboard area, down at the bottom you will see text that reads “Thank you for creating with WordPress.” While not an essential edit, I like to add my own tag on my WordPress builds that includes a credit link in that spot, as well. By placing this:

function remove_footer_admin () {
  echo 'Theme designed and developed by <a href="" target="_blank">Kristin Falkner</a> and powered by <a href="" target="_blank">WordPress</a>.';
add_filter('admin_footer_text', 'remove_footer_admin');

In the theme’s functions.php file, I’ve now added a nice little credit link visible from the WordPress admin side that reads, “Theme designed and developed by Kristin Falkner and powered by WordPress.”
