I understand that hackers can target the vulnerabilities of a WP theme and it has been suggested to remove the Theme Description from my page footer. Is there a painless method to do this?

Hi, do you mean the credit note ?

You can use Remove Footer Credit, simple html and it is gone.

However, it would always be wise purchase the full version because you'd benefit from the extra features a theme can offer, get updates and support from their respective developers. And also pay premium for their work developing something amazing.

However, if something totally different, please advise.

Did you purchase your theme or is it a free theme? Removal of footer copyright and others is an option of the paid version when theme authors offer a free and paid version.
You could remove it, but it's up to you.

A free theme. I am still exploring this idea. Thanks, Tom.

try using siteorigin css plugin to switch it off
this is only part of the protection...
there are other plugins to 'hide' all the other stuff - mostly by renaming the folders - which is manual process
is it worth it...
have you had a problem up till now ....
and with hte protection this platform has....
no guarantees but....
good luck

Thank you, Phil, for the reply.
I have to be careful when I wander into the "techie" minefield.
I could lose my shoe or my hat! lol.

Hi Paul great to see you. This should be under Customize and then Theme Setting, then Footer or something similar, I did it some time ago and forgot details. At the same place, you can edit things to add a Copyright statement.
