    You don't want to remove the entire footer, just the links? It'll be easier to help if you post the code, but look for something like <a href="url">Link text</a> in the footer.php file.

      you can also load your site and look at your source code and grab the footer code from it. then replace your encoded footer with your source code footer.

    Find footer.php in folder theme and remove link. Some themes have protection of this link, you need rent PHP coder to remove it.

    1) Sign into the backend of your WP

    2) Select Appearance -> Editor from the left menu

    3) Select "Footer.php" from the menu on the right

    You will see the following within Footer.php

    Code:
    <div id="footer-wrapper">
    
    		<?php get_sidebar( 'footer' ); ?>
    
    		<div class="grid col-940">
    
    			<div class="grid col-540">
    				<?php if( has_nav_menu( 'footer-menu', 'responsive' ) ) { ?>
    					<?php wp_nav_menu( array(
    										   'container'      => '',
    										   'fallback_cb'    => false,
    										   'menu_class'     => 'footer-menu',
    										   'theme_location' => 'footer-menu'
    									   )
    					);
    					?>
    				<?php } ?>
    			</div>
    			<!-- end of col-540 -->
    
    			<div class="grid col-380 fit">
    				<?php echo responsive_get_social_icons() ?>
    			</div>
    			<!-- end of col-380 fit -->
    
    		</div>
    		<!-- end of col-940 -->
    		<?php get_sidebar( 'colophon' ); ?>
    
    		<div class="grid col-300 copyright">
    			<?php esc_attr_e( '&copy;', 'responsive' ); ?> <?php echo date( 'Y' ); ?><a href="<?php echo home_url( '/' ) ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>">
    				<?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?>
    			</a>
    		</div>
    		<!-- end of .copyright -->
    
    		<div class="grid col-300 scroll-top"><a href="#scroll-top" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'scroll to top', 'responsive' ); ?>"><?php _e( '&uarr;', 'responsive' ); ?></a></div>
    
    	
    		<!-- end .powered -->
    
    	</div>
    	<!-- end #footer-wrapper -->
    Again, you will find the above inside the Footer.php - this is not the entirety of Footer.php just the essential parts you're looking to edit.

    You can safely remove ALL of the above which is inbetween
    Code:
    <div id="footer-wrapper">
    and that final
    Code:
    </div>
    depending on your theme you may see
    Code:
    <!-- end #footer-wrapper -->
    which can be helpful.

    Always back up your copy first if you haven't done this before - copy and paste the entirety of Footer.php into a New text document and if things don't work out, copy and paste / replace the entirety of the script again.

    A totally clean empty version would look like this (this is an entire Footer.php for the theme "Responsive" which I highly recommend but will look similar in other themes)

    Code:
    <?php
    
    // Exit if accessed directly
    if( !defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) {
    	exit;
    }
    
    /**
     * Footer Template
     *
     *

    /*

     */
    global ;
     = responsive_get_options();
    ?>
    <?php responsive_wrapper_bottom(); // after wrapper content hook ?>
    </div><!-- end of #wrapper -->
    <?php responsive_wrapper_end(); // after wrapper hook ?>
    </div><!-- end of #container -->
    <?php responsive_container_end(); // after container hook ?>
    
    <div id="footer" class="clearfix">
    	<?php responsive_footer_top(); ?>
    
    	<div id="footer-wrapper">
    //ALL FOOTER CONTENT REMOVED HERE - NOTICE I AM LEAVING THE CLOSING DIV, THIS EMPTY FOOTER WRAPPER MIGHT AS WELL REMAIN SO YOU CAN PASTE YOUR NEW FOOTER CONTENT HERE
    	</div>
    
    	<?php responsive_footer_bottom(); ?>
    </div><!-- end #footer -->
    <?php responsive_footer_after(); ?>
    
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    I do this regularly to remove the WP standard links and set my own. Hope this helps someone at some point.

      If you did it regularly, you would know that the code for themes vary substantially from what you presented, and they rarely are the same.

      ...Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just set there.

        Snarky much?

        Show me an example of a theme that doesn't allow you to edit Footer content from Footer.php, please.

        In the event my advice didn't help the OP I would then explain how to edit CSS styles and he'd be fine.
