    Now it shows: Powered by WordPress & Highwind. And I want to change it in a personal text.
    Also the 3 widgets of footer don't accept a text.

    How I change the sidebar from right to left?
    Note that I'm not that experienced and need a step by step explanation.

    I work in filezilla and tryed to find a solution in many wordpress forums but these questions didn't work out with me.

    I just installed a child theme plugin

    my website: http://www.lacure.nl

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    To remove the credit in the footer add the following to your child themes functions.php file;

    remove_action( 'highwind_footer', 'highwind_credit, 20 );

    Then hook in your own function like;

    add_action( 'highwind_footer, 'my_footer_content' );
    function my_footer_content() {
    echo 'hello';
    }

    You can change the sidebar in the theme options. Via the admin bar click "Your site name > Customize".

    Thanks

    I also would like to remove the footer text and put in my own, but adding remove_action( 'highwind_footer', 'highwind_credit, 20 ); to functions.php screwed my whole website up haha, had to remove the line in FTP because my website stopped working.

    What should I do?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Sorry guys, there was a missing ' in the code I gave. Should have been:

    remove_action( 'highwind_footer', 'highwind_credit', 20 );

    And

    add_action( 'highwind_footer', 'my_footer_content' );
    function my_footer_content() {
    echo 'hello';
    }

    The following code worked better for me:

    // remove the Highwind and WordPress Credits from the footer but give them lots of love for amazing work!
    
    function removeHighwindCredit() {
    remove_action( 'highwind_footer', 'highwind_credit', 20 );
    add_action( 'highwind_footer', 'my_footer_content' );
    }
    //add custom credits/text to the footer
    function my_footer_content() {
    echo 'All content ©';
    }
    add_action('after_setup_theme','removeHighwindCredit');

    ps: Thank you for a really fantastic theme!
