    Hi,
    Since I'm not using a child theme how can I change the content of the footer?
    Thanks in advance.

    By changing widgets in the 3 footer widget areas ?
    If you want to change credits at the bottom you need to check this snippet. But if you dont want to use child theme you will have to do some hard coding on default class-footer-footer_main.php file which is not recommended.

    You can also try this Snippet which uses a Plugin.

    @tomaja I don't use a child theme and wonder if it is possible to put a code in the custom css like I did with getting rid of the 'designed by' text:
    .span4.credits> p > a:nth-child(2) {
    display: none;
    }
    .span4.credits > p {
    color: #FFF!important;
    }

    @dave Thanks for the snippet, but my question concerns the original footer, not the three optical footers.

    @apestaartje - its ok, but you need to add this too

    .span4.credits> p > a:nth-child(1) {
    display: none;
    }

    thanks tomaja, with this code the text has gone.
    However I want to know how to ADD text in this footer :-)

    @apestaartje - you can add something like this (bellow previous css code)

    .span4.credits:before {
    content: url(http://link.to.your.site.or.something.else/) " MY SITE ";
    color: gray!important;
    }

    but I really do recommend child theme and function snippet.

    @tomaja It's just a few words. Thanks a lot!

    BTW why developing a child theme when I can add a few codes in the custom CSS?

    @apestaartje I agree that if you have only few css changes than custom css is good enough, but still, if you have little more time to spare - read this nice article about child themes. You never know, maybe you will make one after all.
    BTW, you can make this thread [resolved] if you like. Thanks.
