Removing credit details on templates is meant for bloggers who do not have money to purchase premium version of templates. A free version of templates usually comes with credit details, this credit details are added by template builders to generate backlinks to their website. Although i am going to show you how to prevent it from showing up on your blog, but it good to know that this credits links cannot be gotten rid off totally even if you prevent it from showing up on your blog Google may still count these links as dofollow backlink when ranking the templates builder website, unless you want to use another method by clearing all the credit details from the template source codes which am positive it won't work for you because, those credits details on free templates have a link that must interact with the template builders website first before it can work perfectly on another blog.
