  1. [code]remove_action(‘thesis_hook_footer’, ‘thesis_attribution’);
    function add_custom_footer () {
    © 2010 – All rights reserved.
    add_action('thesis_hook_footer', 'add_custom_footer');[/code]

    I understand that this was written in 2010? it does not work for me. I did it only on 1 site and when I tried to implement it on other blog, I cannot remove this footer link. Both are newly made sites.

    1. i don’t think so (you should read their license terms to make sure)

      however, they are breaching wordpress license, so they can’t claim their licenses anyway,

  2. This code didn’t work for me either…I’m using Thesis 1.8.5…have things changed since you posted this? Thanks
