    v4 v6  
    33The rich text control could be used to manage the site's tagline.

    5 This rich text control could also be leveraged by themes to manage a site's footer area. Instead of “Powered by WordPress” being hard-coded into the theme's footer, it could instead be the default value for a `footer_credit` option. This would then allow a user to easily add additional site credits and copyright information to the footer of their site, without having to modify the theme template to do so. WordPress.com has a dropdown control with preset options for this “powered by” text and then a final option to hide for business plans. There could also be a “custom” option which could then reveal a footer credit rich text input where a user could supply links and other content allowed by the Text widget. Naturally the bundled core themes in WordPress.org could make this available by default without requiring a business plan.
