That warning probably comes from your theme that you are using and does not apply to all themes. Some theme makers who have put their links in the footer have such restrictions in place to ensure that people do not remove their links.

The message does not apply to all themes in general.

So I guess if you want to make modifications to your Wordpress footer you may need to use a theme that does not have such a constraint put in place by the theme designer.
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

If your theme does not allow modification of the footer, Another nice and very effective way of removing the Powered by Wordpress or Proudly Powered by Wordpress is to use CSS to hide the div within which the credits are shown.

To do this, you need to know the id of the div within which the attribution is shown. I helped you check the ID of the div in your theme and here is what you should do to hide the powered by.

1. Login to your dashboard and go to Appearance then Editor
2. Doing this will open up the base CSS file for the theme.
3. Scroll to the very bottom of the file and add the following code after the last line:

#credits {
    display: none;
}


4. Click update file and view your website after refreshing
5. If you have installed a caching plugin you may need to delete your cache if the links are still showing


For other themes:
First you need to get the correct div id. To get this,
1. View the site source and search for the words powered by
2. When you find the words, check the code just before it and you will see something like <div id="footer2">
3. Depending on the theme, footer2 could be any word, but whatever is there, that is the div id you are looking for
4. When you have the div id, follow the steps in the first example above but in your code replace credits as used above with your div id
5. So in this example, the code we will use is:

#footer2 {
    display: none;
}

 
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

metalog I checked and saw the Powered by. Maybe you searched with your eyes but you should have used Ctrl+F for automatic Find.

Anyway, the div id that you need to use for this theme is site-generator
