How To Remove Blogger Attribution Gadget (Powered by Blogger)

All blogger templates designed by Blogger’s Template Designer always have an attribution gadget at the footer that says “Powered by Blogger”. If you have ever tried to remove this gadget from your template, you will notice that it has been locked which implies that you can’t remove it. Today, I want to share the method I use to remove the attribution widget from one of my blog that has it.


I have never come across any user agreement that you can’t remove the attribution widget from your blog and I believe you won’t be penalized in any way for removing it. Follow my instructions below if you wish to remove blogger attribution widget.

You will notice that on your template page, the widget cannot be removed because it does not have a remove option as shown below. But you can change the copyright content.

“Important Notice:
Always Back Up Your Templates before Making Any Changes On it”

Steps To Remove Attribution Widget on Blogger Blogs.

1) Go to Blogger Dashboard => Template tab => Edit HTML tab (New Blogger Interface) or Go to Blogger Dashboard => Design tab => Edit HTML tab (Old Blogger Interface) and click on Expand Template Widgets check box

2) Search for the code below in your template. Use ctrl + F to locate it

<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='true' title='' type='Attribution'> 

3) Once you find  the attribution code, change “true” on locked to “false” as shown in the image below


4) Save your template.

5) Go back to Design => Page Elements to check your success. The widget lock command has been disabled, so you can now move, edit and remove the widget.


6) With the remove button available, you can now remove the attribution widget from your blog.


1. Go to Template ==> Edit HTML and and click on Expand Template Widgets check box
2. Click Ctrl+F and search for Attribution1 in your templates.
3. Then you should see some like the one shown below in your template:

<b:section class='foot' id='footer-3' showaddelement='no'>
<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='true' title='' type='Attribution'>
<b:includable id='main'>
    <div class='widget-content' style='text-align: center;'>
      <b:if cond='data:attribution != &quot;&quot;'>
    <b:include name='quickedit'/>

4. Remove all the code except the one you see in red.

Finally, view your blog and see the changes. That’s all.

    I followed your instruction carefully and besides I have some basic knowledge in programming – any mistakes excluded 😉

    Everytime I want to save the changes I made in the html-code it says there was a problem and it couldn’t be saved. So the Attribution still exists. And even if I remove it with the edit-icons shown on my blog, it seems to work for now but if I reload the page the Attribution is shown again.

    I suppose some measures were taken by blogger to avoid such changes, probably when they renewed the whole Blogger user interface.

  27. powertools says:

    this tricks works, thanks

  28. It keeps coming back, how can you permanently remove it?

    • @Angela, I have personally tried it before I posted it here and it works. So you just have to follow the tutorial carefully.

  29. Millie Hillyman says:

    Thank you for such a helpful tip. I will share this with friends whom I know will find it useful too.

  30. @Ratchy Ratch, This trick is working just make sure you follow it properly.

  31. Ratchy Ratch says:

    Yeah it keeps coming back for me too.

  32. @Anonymous, you can as long as you give credit back to

  33. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources returning to your post!

  34. The road to success is littered with failures. You can’t move on forward if you don’t learn the lessons of your mistakes.

  38. @travelers101, follow the instructions carefully. This trick is working perfectly.

  39. travelers101 says:

    This tip worked great, but once I refreshed my page, it returned. Seems google default in place to prevent it from being removed. Using the “simple” template as a base. Ideas? And TIA!

  40. @abin I will make a post about that later, just keep on reading my posts regularly.

  41. please make a post on best blogger widjets
