Changing what the copyright says (6 posts)

    I'm sure someone somewhere has answered this, but I can't find it, so I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but in the footer of my site, which I just started a day or two ago, the copyright information says that the copyright is under the name of my site. I'd like to change that to my name. I tried using the editor to change it in the footer.php, but I don't really know what I'm doing with PHP, so what I tried didn't work.

    I'm using the Weaver template framework. If it helps, my site is at http://www.ericnewcomb.com

    Can you paste your footer.php code to Pastebin for us to see, please?

    Alrighty, line 31 in that file is where your copyright is being output. The line is:

    &copy; <?php echo($year); ?> - <a href="<?php echo home_url( '/' ) ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></a>

    If you want it to just read your name (but still have a link to your website's home page) then just change this bit:

    <?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?>

    to your name.
