It is really easy to remove divi footer credits on your WordPress website with the use of a small piece of CSS code.
We take it that you have already downloaded and installed the Divi theme.

To get started login to your WordPress admin panel.

  • Scroll down to Divi
  • Click on “Theme Options”

Wait a few seconds for the page to load
Scroll to the bottom of the page to where it says “Custom CSS”

Then in the text area type the following code.

/*Footer*/

footer-info {

display:none;

}

What this piece of css will do is to take the ID named “footer-info” and display none of it.
Press save and the footer will disappear.

To reenable the footer information all you have to do is to remove the custom css code and click save.
