    I know this question has been answered 1000 times but I cant seem to apply the answers to my site. I want to change the link and text of the "Proudly Powered by WordPress."

    blog.haltwo.com is the address

    I installed the advanced code editor and one-click child theme plugins. Currently have child theme so when I open editor it is empty. Thanks!

    Find the .php file where the current text is shown - probably footer.php. Copy that file into your child theme folder and edit it.

    Thanks for your reply. For some reason when I do as suggested it has NO affect. I am not a code master by ant means and I know I left a lot of garbage from the parent, but I just cant get anything to actually change the footer.

    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");
    
    <div id="site-generator">
    				<?php do_action( 'twentyeleven_credits' ); ?>
    				<a href="<?php echo esc_url( __( 'http://haltwo.com/', 'twentyeleven' ) ); ?>" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'haltwo.com', 'twentyeleven' ); ?>"><?php printf( __( 'Powered by Propaganda Panda © 2012 haltwo.com | All Rights Reserved' ); ?></a>
    			</div>

    You need to copy the entire parent footer.php file into the child theme -- but do not put the @import line at the top -- that only goes in the style.css file.

    Review this if need be:

    Just looked at your site -- you can't put php code in the CSS file. Remove that and read the link above about how to do the footer.php file.

    Not sure what you mean - are you still talking about changing the text in the footer?

    yes. when I copy the footer from the parent, there seems to be a lot of extracurricular code. I just simply want my text linked to my page in the footer.

    namely the powered by %s part. how do I best change that to the text I want?

    <?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'twentyeleven' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>
