How to Remove Attribution Widget on Blogger

How to remove attribution on Blogger?

How to remove line at the bottom of blog?

If you're using a template by Blogger's Template Designer, most of them have an attribution widget at the bottom of the blog.

Take a look and it's something like this...

You're able to modify only the "Copyright" statement from the widget.

If you want to remove this Attribution widget at Design > Page Elements, you see that it can be edited...

But unlike the other normal widgets, you won't be able to remove the Attribution widget because it doesn't have a "Remove" button.

If you insist on removing the widget, here are the steps to remove the attribution widget on Blogger. It's pretty easy and understandable.

1) First, go to Design > Edit HTML > Tick "Expand Widget Templates". Search for the word "attribution".

2) When you see the Attribution widget code (refer to image above), change the "true" on locked to "false".

3) Go back to Design > Page Elements.

4) Since the lock function is disabled (by changing the code to "false"), it's movable and can be removed as well. Click on "Edit" on the Attribution element.

5) And now with the "Remove" button available, you can finally remove the Attribution widget for good.

Done!

It's doesn't work because when you click on remove, Blogger creates and error and locks it again. The 'false' clicks back to 'true' again.

I've tried it 3 times already. You can initially change it to 'false' in the code and save it. Then go to Page Elements and click on Remove but Blogger just sees that as an error and locks it again.

It didn't work for me

It didn't work for me but then I found a way myself.
You know the whole code with attribution written in it. I deleted the thing.
Then save it. It will come up with "your new template is going to delete attribution" click I do want to delete and It's automatically gone!
I sussed this out myself and I'm only 11.
check my blog out now...

Wow, this was very easy. Thought I would never be able to remove this attribution widget.

Now, it can be moved as well as removed. But I will keep it for sometime. Thanks.
