    Hi I’m wondering if theme creators have the option to not have a spammy link like ‘Use Paulie Theme!’ at the bottom of a wp site…is there some way to turn that off after paying?

    I kind of assumed this would be a ‘feature’ for expensive paid themes ($49 for Paulie).

    The blog I need help with is:

    As a follow up request, if you have to have that, is it possible to make it a little more subtle?

    At $8+ /month forever for wp + $49 for theme I don’t feel like my site should have to be an advertisement…

    Hello practicallyreality,
    Thank you for writing and using Paulie.

    Unfortunately we are not allowed to hide or edit the and theme footer credits. It is something that is out of our control as theme authors. As you can see:

    Current Terms of Service:

    Attribution. Automattic reserves the right to display attribution links such as ‘Blog at,’ theme author, and font attribution in your blog footer or toolbar. Footer credits and the toolbar may not be altered or removed regardless of upgrades purchased.

    The current policy about the footer in the support documentation:

    May I remove the Admin Bar, credit links such as ‘Blog at’, theme, font, or toolbar links?

    All bloggers are required to maintain the Admin Bar (the dark bar that appears at the top of sites when logged in) as well as credit links in the footer, even our VIP bloggers. Please do not hide or alter text or links for the footer credits or the toolbar. Modifying the style of the footer text (i.e. colors and font size) is fine as long as it’s still readable. Using CSS, you can also add content like a copyright notice to the existing footer. If you would like to do that, you can ask in the CSS Customization forum and Staff or our community volunteers would be happy to help you do that.

    See the link referenced here.

    Hope this helps.
    Thank you again!
