The presence of a credit link or credit footer on a blog template is considered disturbing by some bloggers. Especially those who feel the most disturbed are usually beginner bloggers who are always obsessed with removing the credit link in the free template footer they use. I don’t know what the reason is, it’s clear that these beginner bloggers are always looking for loopholes and ways to get rid of the Credit Link in the template. When in fact the effort to remove credit links on blog templates is an illegal way, aka prohibited. The act of unilaterally removing a credit link without the permission of the creator is an act of plagiarism or deliberate manipulation. The irony is that many of these forbidden acts occur among Bloggers themselves.

The Motive Behind Deleting Credit Links?

I guess that these beginner bloggers want their templates to be considered as premium templates by other people or maybe they are prestigious if they have to use the free version of the template. And it’s true, if we use a premium template, we won’t find a credit link on the blog template. But again, this is just a guess and an opinion based on my perspective as a writer.

The Reason I Keep Sharing This Forbidden Tutorial?

Maybe in your mind, many of you question the intent and purpose of this article. You might even consider this article to be paradoxical and contradictory. The simple logic is that if this tutorial is illegal then why are you still desperate to share the tutorial? So the main reason why I’m still desperate to share it is that the trick on how to remove credit links on this blog template is a part of coding science. Where this knowledge can be shared with anyone in general. Although science tends to be negative, the nature of science itself is neutral. So it all depends on how we use this knowledge. Is it used for positive or negative things? So full control lies in ourselves. In addition, this tutorial will be a manifestation of general knowledge, especially for bloggers who are still new to increasing their knowledge and insight. Before stepping into the tutorial, you must know in advance what is meant by a Credit Link and where is it located?

What is Credit Link?

Credit Link or Credit Footer is an active link contained in a template. Usually located in the footer in the form of the name of the template maker. Credit Links are only included in the free version of the template. The purpose is none other than as a marker or identity that the template is made by the creator.

Usually the template maker often displays his name right below the code <b:skin version=’1.3.0’><![CDATA[/* atau <b:skin><! [CDATA[/* or as below.

The main obstacle when deleting Credit Links is removing the redirect script that was intentionally hidden by the template creator so that the Credit Link is not easily lost or deleted. If this redirect script remains attached to the template, it will cause the Credit Link to continue to redirect to the original template creator link. Although the Credit Link has been changed to our blog link though.

Types of Credit Links in Blog Templates

There are two types of Credit Links installed on the blog template, namely plain non-scripted Credit Links and Credit Links with scripts. Between the two of course there is a difference in how to delete it. Where non-scripted plain Credit Links are very easy to remove compared to Credit Links with scripts which are more complicated and complex to remove.

How to Remove Credit Links in Blog Templates

Credit Link Plain Non Script

How to remove it is very easy and simple. Here’s how:

  1. Login to your respective Blogger account.
  2. Please enter the theme/template section.
  3. Then click Edit HTML.
  4. Look for the script located at the footer, usually in the form of the name of the creator of the template or if you are confused, please scroll to the bottom of the script template itself which shows the Credit Link template.
  5. Then please delete and rename the creator according to your wishes. Don’t forget to fill in the URL according to your blog.
  6. Finally, save the template

Credit Link With Script

How to Remove Credit Link with the script is more complicated and complex. Because Credit Link is intentionally hidden in a stack of script code in the template. Usually, we often experience failure when deleting this type of Credit Link. Because the template has been inserted the Credit Link script will automatically redirect the link to the site of the original template owner. The risk if we keep on deleting Credit Links is losing some of the excellent features of the template. But that does not mean that this type of Credit Link cannot be removed, there is a special trick to get rid of it, but it takes precision and foresight to recognize the Credit Link redirect script.

Okay just go ahead, follow the tutorial below.

  1. Login to your respective Blogger account.
  2. Please enter the theme / template section.
  3. Then click Edit HTML.
  4. Look for script code like this: <script type=’text/javascript’>
  5. Usually right under the script code <script type=’text/javascript’> there will be a key script code like the following.

<script type=’text/javascript’>//<![CDATA[var _0x5019 = [“\x72\x69\x64\x61\x66\x6f\x74\x6f”, “\x69\x6E\x64\x65\x78\x4F\x66”, “\x68\x74\x6D\x6C”, “\x23\x66\x6F\x6F\x74\x65\x72”, “\x6C\x6F\x67”, “\x68\x72\x65\x66”, “\x6C\x6F\x63\x61\x74\x69\x6F\x6E”, “\x68\x74\x74\x70\x3a\x2f\x2f\x72\x69\x64\x61\x66\x6f\x74\x6f\x2e\x62\x6c\x6f\x67\x73\x70\x6f\x74\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d\x2f”, “\x6C\x6F\x61\x64”];

$(window)[_0x5019[8]](function() {    var _0xd58bx1 = $(_0x5019[3])[_0x5019[2]]()[_0x5019[1]](_0x5019[0]); console[_0x5019[4]](_0xd58bx1); if (_0xd58bx1 < 1) { window[_0x5019[6]][_0x5019[5]] = _0x5019[7];};}); //]]></script><script type=’text/javascript’>//<![CDATA[var _0x5019=[“\x76\x69\x64\x65\x6f\x61\x72\x73\x69\x70″,”\x69\x6E\x64\x65\x78\x4F\x66″,”\x68\x74\x6D\x6C”,”\x23\x66\x6F\x6F\x74\x65\x72″,”\x6C\x6F\x67″,”\x68\x72\x65\x66″,”\x6C\x6F\x63\x61\x74\x69\x6F\x6E”,”\x68\x74\x74\x70\x3a\x2f\x2f\x76\x69\x64\x65\x6f\x61\x72\x73\x69\x70\x2e\x62\x6c\x6f\x67\x73\x70\x6f\x74\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d\x2f”,”\x6C\x6F\x61\x64″];$(window)[_0x5019[8]](function (){var _0xd58bx1=$(_0x5019[3])[_0x5019[2]]()[_0x5019[1]](_0x5019[0]);console[_0x5019[4]](_0xd58bx1);if(_0xd58bx1<1){window[_0x5019[6]][_0x5019[5]]=_0x5019[7];};}//]]></script><script type=’text/javascript’>//<![CDATA[var _0x5019=[“\x76\x69\x64\x65\x6f\x61\x72\x73\x69\x70″,”\x69\x6E\x64\x65\x78\x4F\x66″,”\x68\x74\x6D\x6C”,”\x23\x66\x6F\x6F\x74\x65\x72″,”\x6C\x6F\x67″,”\x68\x72\x65\x66″,”\x6C\x6F\x63\x61\x74\x69\x6F\x6E”,”\x68\x74\x74\x70\x3a\x2f\x2f\x76\x69\x64\x65\x6f\x61\x72\x73\x69\x70\x2e\x62\x6c\x6f\x67\x73\x70\x6f\x74\x2e\x63\x6f\x6d\x2f”,”\x6C\x6F\x61\x64″];$(window)[_0x5019[8]](function (){var _0xd58bx1=$(_0x5019[3])[_0x5019[2]]()[_0x5019[1]](_0x5019[0]);console[_0x5019[4]](_0xd58bx1);if(_0xd58bx1<1){window[_0x5019[6]][_0x5019[5]]=_0x5019[7];};});//]]></script>

  1. Then delete all the key script code. Next, please save the template and do a direct test. Check whether the template is still affected by the redirect link or not.

Notes:

If the template is still affected by the redirect link even though it has been removed or the key script code is not found in the template. So as an alternative, please look for the code as below. Generally the script code is located before tag </body>.

<script src=’http://xxxx.github.io/xxxxxx/script.js’/>pre><b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType !=&quot;item&quot;’><b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType !=&quot;static_page&quot;’><script type=’text/javascript’>

//<![CDATA[

function downloadJSAtOnload() {

    var e = document.createElement(“script”);

    e.src = “http://xxxx.github.io/xxxxx/home.js”, document.body.appendChild(e)

}

window.addEventListener ? window.addEventListener(“load”, downloadJSAtOnload, !1) : window.attachEvent ? window.attachEvent(“onload”, downloadJSAtOnload) : window.onload = downloadJSAtOnload;

//]]></script>

Then please delete the entire script code above and save the template. To be more sure, please check and test directly to make sure the blog template is free from Credit Links that are automatically redirected. The script above is included in the defer script category which functions to activate an automatic Credit Link redirect script in a template. The code marked with the letters “XXX” is the code of the script owner. Where the series of each code will be different too.

Disclaimer: To prevent further problems related to template plagiarism. Please buy the premium version of the template at the official template seller. In this way, we indirectly support the work of the template creators. The above trick only aims to increase knowledge among Bloggers without aiming to harm and bring down certain parties. That is all and thank you.
