I would like to remove powered by Magento from the footer.

It's not in CMS blocks "footer_links".

HTML source code

<p class="bugs"> - <a href="http://www.magentocommerce.com/bug-tracking" 
onclick="this.target='_blank'"><strong>powered by Magento</strong></a> (Version</p>
  1. Enable Template Path Hints (System -> Configuration; choose your store view; Developer -> Debug)

  2. You will find out that the default file is: app/design/frontend/base/default/template/page/html/footer.phtml (don't touch this file)

  3. Copy it to: app/design/frontend/[your_package]/[your_theme]/template/page/html/footer.phtml

  4. Clear cache, reload.

Then you can modify this file as you want.

The "brute-force" method would be to do a full-project code-search for a unique string, such as class="bugs" to find the right location.

The more educated way is of course to use template hints as Tim pointed out.

  • I don't know if template path hints are necessarily the "more educated way" of finding the template. I often find that using grep from SSH is faster (depending on what you're looking for). – pspahn Feb 13 '13 at 18:28
  • I agree with @pspahn, grep can be quicker...and depending on the site you are working on (I've seen this in sites I have inherited) HTML issues can stop the template hints from working – CCBlackburn Feb 17 '13 at 21:59
  • I personally like this method better since this can be applied to a broader range of issues. – Francis Kim Feb 18 '13 at 13:47
