    Hi,

    Can any one tell me how to alter the footer text in a child spun theme?

    Cheers.

    You'll need to set up a child theme and then post a link to your site.

    Cool - so now you need to make a copy of the footer.php file and put that in your child theme folder.

    What do you want to change?

    wow, that was quick! :)

    I want to change it to:

    Copyright © 2013 Rachel Lucie Jewellery | All rights reserved | Theme by Caroline Moore

    I want the writing that is shown in bold to be links, and it would be great if the year was auto-updating, if possible.

    Will copy that file over now ...

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to this - in that copy of the footer.php file, replace this:

    <?php do_action( 'spun_credits' ); ?>
    			<a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'A Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'spun' ); ?>" rel="generator"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'spun' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>
    			<span class="sep"> | </span>
    			<?php printf( __( '%1$s by %2$s.', 'spun' ), '<a href="http://carolinemoore.net/" rel="designer">Spun', 'Caroline Moore</a>' ); ?>

    with this:

    <a rel="generator">
    Copyright &copy; <?php echo date('Y'); ?> <a rel="designer" href="http://www.rachelluciegallery.co.uk/">Rachel Lucie Jewellery | All rights reserved | Theme by <a rel="designer" href="http://carolinemoore.net/">Caroline Moore</a>
    </a>

    spot on, WPyogi, thanks!!

    now, I would really love to get the correct method to make the footer stay and not disappear - I managed it with the #masthead and have followed instructions I found in the forum, but it failed. Should that be a new post?

    cheers

    LOL - that's so funny because as I was experimenting with this change on a test site, I had to figure out how to make it do the disappearing thing!

    Anyway, try adding this CSS:

    #colophon, #colophon a {
        color: #999999;
    }

    I followed this, and everything is fine except 1 thing. I can't get swedish å,ä and ö to work in my name in the footer. It just appears as a questionmark :)

    Anyone have an idea what it might be?

    <div class="site-info">
    			<a rel="generator">
    Copyright &copy; <?php echo date('Y'); ?> <a rel="designer" href="http://www.löw-larsen.se/">Löw-Larsen | All rights reserved | </a>
    </a>
