Easy steps: How to put a footer credit on your blog site

I was in the middle of customizing my blog site when I chanced upon a way to add a footer credit on my site. I’m talking about this one right here:

After 3 years, I finally figured it out! Seriously, Sheryl? 😀 😀

I’d always been curious about this. Why can’t I remove that footer credit by WordPress.com or even edit it? Turns out that my site isn’t a self-hosted one that I can manually put my own footer credit. Yes, I officially have my own domain but WordPress.com is still hosting my site. Also, I’m a user on the Premium plan (which you can start earning through WordAds, an ad program from WordPress.com) and I mistook it for being a self-hosted blog site. It really pays to be a curious bug sometimes, yes? 😀 Now everything’s almost clear to me. Just almost, I know I still have lots to learn.

Despite that little misunderstanding, I didn’t end my road to discovering a way to put that thing I’d always wanted to have. I never imagined it’d be a complete no-brainer. Allow me to share it with you. (⌒ω⌒)

  1. Go to My Site.
  2. Click Menus.
  3. Choose Footer Menufooter-credit-on-your-blog-site
  4. Click + Add new menu.
  5. Edit the name of the new menu (e.g. Footer) and click ADD NEW ITEMfooter-credit
  6. Edit the new item (e.g. your copyright) and click Page. Then choose Home (your site). Click OK.
  7. Click Save.

Remember, that footer credit by WordPress.com won’t be removed unless you upgrade your plan to Business or join the WordPress.org (self-hosted site).

    1. Of course! It’s just that I asked them about different matters. The team has been very helpful since the beginning. I’m a type of person who takes risk just to feed her curiosity. This one is a fulfillment. 😁

        1. Perhaps, trouble shooting or the system was down at that time? I’ve been quite satisfied with the site. My recent experience was I got a response after a few hours and the response was very helpful. Like I didn’t need to ask them again and again.
