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.

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.

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.
