Remove 'Powered by Blogger' - Attribution Widget

In this article, I will be demonstrating how to remove the ‘Powered by Blogger attribution widget in the footer of Blogspot blogs. Before going to the process, backup your blogger template, while editing HTML code if anything goes wrong or the template modified design doesn't work or looks good you can restore it from a backed-up template.
Here I have demonstrated to you two methods for removing the attribution widget. Some blogger templates may not support method 1 then you need to follow method 2 for successfully removing the attribution widget.

Method 1: Removing ‘Powered by Blogger’ by unlocking the Attribution widget

Step 1 : Go to your blog "Template" | click on "Edit HTML".

on your blogger template.

Step 6: Now go to the layout option and below you can see the attribution gadget, click edit you will be able to see a new pop-up window, click on the remove button. that's it you are done.

Some people told me that method 1 is not working in some blogger templates, then the alternative solution for this is to hide the attribution widget by using CSS method.
