    Hi, i'd like to have a credit for the designer of the site in my footer, any simple way of doing this?

    Heres my site - http://bringingbalance.co.uk/dir/

    Thanks!

    Have you created a child theme? You should not be modifying ANY theme files - as your changes will be lost when the theme is updated.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Then you can modify the footer.php file in the child theme to add the text you want.

    Hi, yeah I have a child them that I've been using quite a bit already. Just not sure what code to use to have something like 'site built and designed by benn.h design' with the Benn.h design part of the text as a link to the designer website.

    Your site is not using a child theme - it shows this:

    Oh ok, i was told that the pinboard theme essentially has a built in child theme that you can work with. It's in the theme option>layout>custom css area that ive been adding my own css too. Ive also been led to believe that if i am to update the theme this custom css will be be deleted. Can i not customise the footer through this.

    I don't actually have access to the original wordpress files according to my service provider 'pickaweb' as they were uploaded by them when i used the 'one click wordpress upload'. Basically i can't view the wordpress files local to my computer, only the code can be viewed through wordpress in a browser.

    Under Appearance then Widgets, you could put a text widget in the footer and write whatever you want. You could use text or html. I would suggest something like the following. By giving the div an "id" you can use css to style the width, font, color or whatever! You can just add css to the custom css editor or to your child theme whatever your using!

    <div id="footer-credit">
    <p>Designed by WEB MASTER 123</p>
    </div>
