How to Remove Powered by GeneratePress in Free & Premium Version Theme?

In this tutorial, I will walk you through a guide, how to remove powered by GeneratePress copyright text from the footer area of GP theme.

This is an exclusive copyright removal guide for all GeneratePress users, either using GeneratePress free version or GP Premium.

So let's dive in the guide.

The copyright section or bar is an essential part of a website’s footer area. By default, most of WordPress themes come with credit copyright text, saying powered by (theme name).

You may notice a copyright text saying powered by GeneratePress after installing Generate Press theme or GP Premium plugin on your WordPress blog.

Most of the time, bloggers don’t want to keep this text or want to replace it with another context like I have edited my copyright text, including affiliate links.

In order to delete or edit the copyright section text, I have written two separate guides to Generate Press free theme users and the other for GP Premium plugin users.

Let's get started...!

How to remove powered by GeneratePress copyright text?

I have separated this tutorial into two parts. First, I will introduce GP Premium users to understand how to remove powered by GeneratePress from the copyright section then 2nd steps for free theme users.

Removing copyright text using GP Premium

If you are using GeneratePress Pro that means, you have already installed GP Premium plugin on your WordPress site.

GP Premium is a toolset that makes everything easy to customize a website without touching parent or child theme files.

To delete/edit/remove powered by GeneratePress text all you need to follow below steps:

Login to your WordPress Admin area and then tap on Appearance >> Customizer options.

Now click on Layout >> Footer options.

Here you will see the copyright section. Here you can remove the copyright text completely or replace with your own text (HTML/CSS allowed) and then save the settings by clicking on the Publish button.

Deleting footer copyright on GeneratePress free theme

If you are using Generate Press free version, then it may be a bit technical to remove powered by GeneratePress text. But don't worry, just follow the below steps, respectively.

Copy the below PHP code and paste it into the theme’s functions.php file’s bottom.

Replace the text saying, “WRITE YOUR CUSTOM COPYRIGHT TEXT HERE” with your own custom text (adding HTML, CSS & PHP codes are allowed).

add_filter( 'generate_copyright','tu_custom_copyright' );
function tu_custom_copyright() {

If you want to remove the entire footer area from your blog, then add below PHP code at the bottom of functions.php.

add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'tu_remove_footer_area' );
function tu_remove_footer_area() {
remove_action( 'generate_footer','generate_construct_footer' );


Undoubtedly, GeneratePress is a fast loading, SEO friendly, lightweight WordPress theme, especially in case of security & usability; it uses the latest and most stable coding standards.

If you are familiar with this theme, then I strongly recommend you take a try the pro version. You can buy GP Premium at a 10% discount or read this guide for additional details.
