Not much at all!
If you are using a theme you installed from the C5 marketplace use either an ftp program or your cpanel's "file manager" and go to:
yoursite.com> packages> yourtheme> themes> yourtheme> elements> footer.php. delete the code that looks like this:

<a href="<?php echo $this->url('/login')?>"><?php echo t('sign in to edit this site')?></a>

IF
you are using a default theme that came with C5 then go to this location:
yoursite.com> concrete> themes> yourtheme> elements> footer.php and delete the code.

where 'yoursite' and 'yourtheme' are the name of your website and the name of the theme that you're using.

Yeh,

that's what I thought (and did).

Just checking.

Thanks

I followed your instructions couple of months ago and they worked just fine.

But now i upgraded concrete5 version and it seems that some of the pages still have "Sign In to Edit this Site" and "concrete5 - open source CMS" on the bottom of a page.

Do you know how to remove them from every page of a website?

The problem is the original post incorrectly told you to edit the theme files in /concrete/themes/ when you should have copied the footer file from /concrete/themes/yourtheme/elements/footer.php to /themes/yourtheme/element/footer.php

Concrete5 allows you to overwrite most of the core files (including themes) by placing a copy of your edited file in the root structure of your site (not within the /concrete folder)

The problem is, when you upgrade Concrete5, files get replaced within the /concrete folder, which is why if you want to make modifications you should not do so within that folder?

Savvy?

If you use default theme, you can use css:

Go to the Pages and Themes.
Click a "customize" button in your active theme.
Next Add Your CSS and write in field:

.sign-in {display:none;}

I have tried this but must be missing something. I have recently updated to the latest c5 version and now the "c5 link" and the "sign in here" are back. I'm using plain yougurt.

I would like to remove these items in the footer.

Please help.

Do what Lucas said. Copy /concrete/themes/default to /themes in the root and then edit it.

I'm using hostmonster.com and trying to find the "root folder."

I can only find:

/public_html/updates/concrete5.4.1.1/concrete/themes/default/elements/footer.php

and

/public_html/concrete/themes/default/elements/footer.php

I have opened both and tried to delete what I thought might get rid of the correct info to stop displaying the "login in" and "C5 site name."

But no success yet. Can you please give me some more direction?

Thanks in advance!

I just tried CSS nija's suggestion above and was able to remove the "sign in."

Does anyone know what to put in the css to remove the "concret 5- open source CMS" text?

Thanks for your help!

Without any coding and if you are using one of the defaults themes.

You can go to - Dashboard and -- Themes... and then click in customize. In the top Right you will see Add your CSS

You can paste the code:

.sign-in {display:none;}
.powered-by{visibility:hidden;}

I have entered this in the CSS theme and it does not take it off.

Can you please give me complete detail to get into the directory or core to change it?

I have tried the various describe ways but only get to failed to open page. I am new to css and just now downloaded the new version.
thanks

first, make sure you copy your concrete/themes/greek_yogurt folder to /themes first, so no updates will ever overwrite your edits.

Next edit /themes/greek_yogurt/main.css. Add this line to the end of the file:

.footer-sign-in { display: none; }

Thank you for this information, I will be happy to try it only I don't know where to go to to make the changes. Where do I put the links you have describe above? In my website edit?

you need ftp access to your site's file structure. I use FileZilla. Then make the edits directly to the file structure as I described!!

I found it and added the line you noted to the end of the file, saved it. It is still not working though. I would also like to take out the "Built with concrete5 - an open source CMS" I can do this in the same file?
