    Hi Guys
    I have my site well published online, up and running, but now i want to edit my footer, i don't know how to go about, editing it. I can log in using ftp. What should i do?
    Thanks in advance

  2. It depends on the theme. Some theme's are as easy as just creating a child theme, making a copy of the parent theme's footer.php file and editing the footer that way.

    Other themes are a little more complicated. Which theme are you using?

    I created my own theme using artisteer. could that be a problem?

  4. Sorta. Ish. ;)

    We don't support themes from Artisteer here but you can try editing the footer.php file directly (generally not a good idea) or as I said create a child theme, making a copy of the parent theme's footer.php file and editing the footer that way.

    The reason you want to go with a child theme is so that your changes will not be lost when a theme update comes out. I'm not sure that applies to Artisteer themes though.

    When i was uploading my interim site to be live online http://www.orangeridge.co.za i changed my home url address as it should be done, and now, after changing it, it logged me out of dashboard now i cannot log in anymore, i tried clearing my cookies but it doesn't help. What could be the problem?
