    Replace all of it with this:

    /*
    Theme Name: Spun Child
    Template: spun
    */
    @import url("../spun/style.css");

    Don't copy functions.php file into a child theme - it will likely crash your site.

    You need to copy footer.php file.

    You can ask your hosting providers for help with copying the "footer.php" file into your Child Theme folder.

    If you delete all of the code in your footer.php file, really all of it, does your footer stuff disappear?

    yes, if i delete all the code in footer.php after i put in the code related to this link which didn't add the footer information that I wanted to add and dimmed out some parts of the footer.

    http://pastebin.com/9ABJxyWA

    so all i need to do to finish this tech part of my site is add what is in quotes below to the footer which already exists

    Proudly powered by Word Press | Design Caroline Moore | "Content Copyright 2013 Art Donsky"

    all i want to add are these 4 words and 1 date.

    thank for anyone's help to finish this up.
