Hiding attribution links in BoldGrid and WordPress

Overview

You must have a BoldGrid Premium Connect Key in order to be able to hide any attribution links when using a BoldGrid theme. If you have installed WordPress using the One-Click Installs, your WordPress installation will likely already have a Premium Connect Key installed.

To confirm if a Premium Connect Key is installed, from your WordPress dashboard click the Dashboard tab in the left pane. On the right side under 'BoldGrid Notifications', look for 'Boldgrid Connect Key'. If a key is not installed, contact DreamHost support.

This article describes how to hide the attribution links that appear at the bottom of your WordPress site when using a BoldGrid theme. The following is an example of attribution links:

Themes not developed by BoldGrid may not allow you to hide attribution links or may require a paid Pro version. For more information, contact the theme’s developer so they can assist you.
