    Hey @jtm

     

    If this was for a Version 7 Website Builder then you should just be able to select the content and delete it within the page designer. If you're having trouble selecting the content block, check to see if this was locked. Beyond that, you may want to contact our live support so they can help look into what is preventing the content from being selected and removed in the page designer.

    hello @jtm,

     

    Can you please provide us with a link to your site, I will reply with some CSS that might solve the issue you are experiencing.

     

     

     

    Warm Regards,

    Could you please post that CSS here online so that we don't have to keep asking? I tried entering this css in the Site-wide Code CSS box but it deletes it when I click OK.

     

    .footer-container. wsb-element-image div {
    display:none;
    }

    The delete icon on the menu is grayed out so I can't delete it. I can't find a way to unlock it. It is not nice to make it so hard to get rid of. We are paying for a premium website and should not have to put up with advertising on it. The link to GoDaddy is not coded to "nofollow" so it is also giving our search engine rank away to GoDaddy.

    Please delete it from all of your templates or give us credit for advertising for Godaddy.

    Thanks, Ann

    I was able to delete it by clicking the down button on its tool bar and choosing "Unlock Position" then Delete. I shouldn't be on a paid website in the first place. It makes websites look cheap.

    Hi there - Actually, I deleted it from the footer since I wanted only my website showing. Now, I'm trying to put it back. 

     

    To remove it, go to your right panel where it says header, etc and footer. click the 3 dots at the right, then highlight, delete click Done at the top then publish - hope this helps

    Hi, it me, lilvix08, again 

     

    To remove the powered by godaddy in the footer - scroll down to the footer and click on the powered by - then on the panel lat the right, delete the powered by, click done at the top and publish. That should do it. Worked for me! Good luck and have a fabulous week!
