      Hey Kristine,

      Looks like you just deleted some other codes lines as well in addition to the ones required to remove “Powered by Shopify”.
      Just reinstall the theme to revert the code or contact Shopify customer support to fix the footer for you. It’s not a big deal. Happens to the best of us.
