VIP always appreciates our clients displaying a “Powered by WordPress.com VIP” link in the footer of their theme. Service agreements with VIP may include this as a requirement, so please get in touch with any specific questions.

Most people put this link in the footer of their website. Rather than hardcoding this link, we would prefer if you used the existing helper function to do it, vip_powered_wpcom().


<?php echo vip_powered_wpcom(); ?>

If called with no arguments, vip_powered_wpcom() will return the following:

Powered by <a href="http://wpvip.com/" rel="generator">WordPress.com VIP</a>

However you can customize that to better fit your site if you wish.

The first argument controls the output type. The default is text, but you can also pass the numbers 1 through 6 to use one of these images instead of text:


The second parameter only applies to the text format and controls the text before the link. It defaults to “Powered by ” (note the trailing space).
