How to Remove Powered by Blogger – Attribution Widget?

By | July 17, 2016

In this article, I will be demonstrating how to remove or hide attribution widget ‘Powered by Blogger’ in footer of blogger blogspot blogs. Before going to the process, backup your blogger template, while editing html code if anything goes wrong or template modified design doesn’t work or looks good you can restore from backed up template.

Here I have demonstrated you two methods for removing attribution widget. Some blogger templates may not support method 1 then you need to follow method 2 for successfully removing attribution widget.

Method 1: Remove ‘Powered by Blogger’ by unlocking Attribution widget

Step 1 : Go to your blog “Template” | click on “Edit HTML”.
click on edit html for modifying blogspot code

Step 2 : Here on drop-down “jump to widget” option and select Attribution 1 as shown below

Step 3: After selecting Attribution 1 widget you will be able to see this line

<b:widget id=’Attribution1′ locked=’true’ title=” type=’Attribution’> 
on your blogger template.

In html editor find attribution 1 locked widget

Step 4: Replace the locked=’true’ with locked=’false’ as you can in picture highlighted

Step 5: Once done click on ‘Save template’.
Step 6 : Now go to layout option and at the below you can see attribution gadget, click edit you will be able to see new pop up window, click on remove button. that’s it you are done.

Some people told me that method 1 is not working in some blogger templates, then the alternative solution for this is to hide attribution widget by using adding CSS code method.


Method 2: Hide Attribution widget by adding CSS code.

Follow the same step 1 as mention above in method 1.

Step 2: Search this line of code
body {
in your blogger template, for quick finding Hit CTRL+F

Add this line of code
#Attribution1 {display: none;}
above the body { code, as shown in the below picture.
