Hi,

Kept seeing post about remove "Powered by Shopify" by removing the code line "powered_by_link". But rather than removing, I would like to change that name and link to a different website.

This post shows how to change the name, https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/store/remove-powered-by-shopify-messagebut once clicked, the link still comes back to www.shopify.com.

How do you change the link too?

You can just add your own link in its place. eg:

<a href="some-link">some text</a>

Pro tip: Instead of modifying the HTML outright, just define your own powered_by_link by assigning a value, or capturing some HTML. I have this at the top of my footer.liquid.

{% capture powered_by_link %}
<a href="https://www.bubbleup.net">Empowered by Bubble Up</a>
{% endcapture %}

This has several advantages:
1. In the Debut theme, there are two places where the powered_by_link gets output. Keeping it updated in two places is just a pain...
2. When manually merging in code changes (like when there's a new version of your theme), it's way more obvious that this is custom stuff that belongs in your custom theme. If it's just HTML and variables, it can be confusing to know what belongs where.
3. The Debut footer template is already a cluttered mess. It's way easier to know your syntax is right when you aren't 6 indentation levels deep. "[I]f you need more than 3 levels of indentation, you're screwed anyway, and should fix your program." - Linus Torvalds (creator of Linux)
