The powered by OpenCart footer link appears on every page and is an easy way for you to promote and help support OpenCart. Alternatively, this makes it easy for hackers to determine what your shopping cart is built with and target. It's relatively easy to remove using File Manager in cPanel.

  1. Log into cPanel
  2. Go to File Manager
  3. Go to /catalog/view/theme/default/template/common/footer.tpl
  4. Right click on the file and open with the code editor
  5. Find the line "<div id="powered"><?php echo $powered; ?></div>" and delete it
  6. opencart_footer_alter_1

  7. Click "Save Changes"

Now, when you visit your website, the footer is removed.

opencart_footer_alter_2 opencart_footer_alter_3

If you need further assistance please feel free to ask a question on our support center.

Hello Brstdev,

Sorry for problem with WAMP and the opencart demo. Basically the issue has to do with the $this code in the code. You can see it discussed in this forum post. This issue is discussed in the OpenCart Support forums as well (though under XAMP - but it's the same issue).

We typically do not support WAMP/XAMP as it not the same as our hosting environment. We also do not provide coding support. We do try to help point you in a helpful direction that may lead to a resolution for your problem. Hopefully, the links I have provided and the OpenCart support forum discussion will provide the answers you need. If you require further support on that issue, then you may need to pursue it within the OpenCart support forum as the community may have a resolution for your WAMP installation.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Hello Nurhadi,

You can edit the file by simply inserting proper HTML code. We do, however, advise against modifying source code as it can yield undesired results.

When visiting your site, I see powered by If you are still seeing powered by opencart, it may simply be a caching issue in which clearing your browser cache should solve the issue.
