    Is there a way to remove the Powered by WordPress footer.

    The recommended way to remove the Powered by WordPress footer (or change it to something else) is by installing and activating the Claremont Child Theme from here: https://uxlthemes.com/docs/child-themes/

    You can then override any of the claremont functions with your own code by going to Appearance > Editor. Select ‘Claremont Child’ where it says ‘Select theme to edit:’

    Then select the ‘Theme Functions (functions.php)’ file and add your own php code below the /* write custom functions below here */ line.

    This is the standard Claremont function which would need to be changed:

    	function claremont_site_info( $output = '' ) {
    		$copyright = get_theme_mod( 'footer_content' );
    		$output .= '<div class="site-info">';
    			if ( ! empty( $copyright ) ) {
    				$output .= wp_kses_post($copyright);
    			} else {
    				$output .= sprintf( esc_html__( '&copy; %1$s %2$s - All Rights Reserved.', 'claremont' ), get_the_time( 'Y' ), get_bloginfo() );
    			}
    		$output .= '</div><div class="theme-info"><a href="'.esc_url( esc_html__( 'http://wordpress.org/', 'claremont' ) ).'">'.sprintf( esc_html__( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'claremont' ), 'WordPress' ).'</a><span class="sep"> | </span>'.sprintf( esc_html__( 'Theme: %2$s by %1$s.', 'claremont' ), 'uXL Themes', '<a href="http://uxlthemes.com/theme/claremont/" rel="designer">Claremont</a>' ).'</div>';
    		echo $output;
    	}

    So, to remove the whole of the powered by WordPress line add this php code:

    	function claremont_site_info( $output = '' ) {
    		$copyright = get_theme_mod( 'footer_content' );
    		$output .= '<div class="site-info">';
    			if ( ! empty( $copyright ) ) {
    				$output .= wp_kses_post($copyright);
    			} else {
    				$output .= sprintf( esc_html__( '&copy; %1$s %2$s - All Rights Reserved.', 'claremont' ), get_the_time( 'Y' ), get_bloginfo() );
    			}
    		$output .= '</div>';
    		echo $output;
    	}

    It is important that you edit the child theme file and not the core Claremont files, so that any changes you make will not be undone when the parent theme is updated.
