Dear Elegant Themes,
Please forgive this open letter to you about your footer credit, but it seems that it is the only way to get through to you.
I genuinely believe that your themes are the best on the internet. I believe that your pricing plan is the fairest too. Your customer service is second to none. However, one thing seriously lets you down.
You insist that you have a footer credit on my sites. I don’t want it or like it.
Yes, one of the tools that I have used to develop my sites is from Elegant Themes. However, that should not give you the right to advertise yourselves there. I do not want to display “Designed by Elegant Themes” anywhere on my sites.
Do architects advertise their services on buildings that they have designed? Does any other tool manufacturer have a right to have a credit on the things their tools are used to create?
The short answer is, “NO!”
I know that it is possible to delete your credit by editing your themes “footer.php” file. But every time the theme is updated it reappears!
I INSIST that you stop putting your credit link graffiti on my sites.
