If you use Wishlist Member plugin to run a membership site using WordPress, then you may have noticed that the Wishlist Member plugin adds a message to your membership site’s footer. This message is normally as follows,
Powered by WishList Member – Membership Site Software
In this message, the phrase ‘Membership Site Software’ links to the wishlist member plugin’s website. Its a good idea to remove this ‘Powered by WishList Member – Membership Site Software‘ message from the footer of your website, as it hides the plugin you are using on your website and thus makes your site more secure.
Also its better if you use the footer of your website to show your own copyright message and company info rather then promoting a third party plugin.
Its really easy to remove the ‘Powered by WishList Member – Membership Site Software’ from your site’s footer. Go to Settings > Configuration > Miscellaneous in wishlist member settings page, and choose no for the ‘Show Affiliate Link in Footer’ option. Now save the options.
That’s it. You will not see the Powered by WishList Member in the footer of your website now. If you still see it, clear your WordPress cache (if any).
