    I've been searching all over the forum for this, and perhaps I don't know enough about php to figure it out from other related posts.
    That said, How do I edit my footer in the Sundance theme? I'd like to have copyright information with no hyperlinks. Thank you!

  2. Hi there, the credits are in the file footer.php.

    The best way to make these sorts of changes to a theme is to use a child theme, so your tweaks won't be overwritten when updating the theme. Here are some guides in case you haven't made one before:

    In your child theme, place a copy of footer.php.

    Remove lines 16-19 and replace them with whatever footer text you like.

    Just let me know if you need further help.

    Hello! I should have been clearer in my original post. I like that it is one color to the left of the vertical bar, and another to the right of it. I actually tried taking the <a href></a> out in line 17. This got rid of the link, but it also got rid of the color. I then tried your suggestion removing lines 16-19 and typing in my footer. That also made it all one color. From there, I then tried <body style:"red";>Left half of vertical bar text</body> | Right half or vertical bar text. That then made it all red. Perhaps I'm also lacking on my html knowledge?? Sorry if I'm being dense.

    I do have a child theme set up. Thanks again for your help!

  4. Hi there, I think it might be a little easier to help if I could see your site - could you provide a link so I can have a look? Thanks!

    Is your goal to have something like this?

    Some text here in colour #1 | <a href="http://alink.com">A link here in colour #2</a>

    I just figured it out! It was CSS. And you had my goal except I didn't want ANY links anywhere in the footer. This is what I did to my footer.php file, line 17:
    - took out the entire <a> tag
    - added <span style="color:red">Line 17</span>

    I also changed the text to what I wanted.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    Thanks!

  7. Great, glad you're all set!

    Just a small tip that it's better practice to separate your styles and keep them in your CSS file. So you'd have something like this in your footer.php:

    <span class="myfooter">Line 17</span>

    And this in your style.css:

    .myfooter {
       color: #f00;
    }
