How to remove attribution powered by blogger

In Blogger footer, we can see a "Powered by Blogger" dialogue. This is called Attribution widget. It has optional copyright field. This is used to display copyright information and credits. There we can put our copyright notices, if we want. It is not necessary to keep attribution widget.

 B logger's terms and conditions may not allow to remove this widget from the blog. Check terms & conditions before doing this hack.
It can be removed by three methods.

  • Using edit HTML method
Step 1: Go to Template > Edit HTML > Proceed
Step 2: Search for attribution, We can find the following code.

<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='true' title='' type='Attribution'/>

Step 3: Delete or comment out the above code.
Sometime, this method will work. If it is not working use the following method.

  • Using Unlock method
For this method, up to step 2 everything is same. After searching and finding the above code, change the red coloured true to false. 

<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='true' title='' type='Attribution'/>
So the code will be like this. 

<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='false' title='' type='Attribution'/>
Now close Edit HTML. Go to Layout. Find widget named Attribution. Click edit. Click on the Remove button. Gone.. 

And We have done..
