I modified footer.php and uploaded it to the child theme folder adding my name to the copyright line but it does not display.
Any advice would be appreciated.
please post the full code of the modified file (please use the pastebin as described in http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Posting_Code )
I modified footer.php and uploaded it to the child theme folder
what is the output?
are you using any cache plugins?
Hi: I also attempted to modify the footer.php, so I can change the footer of the site I'm helping to manage (www.pcohc.org).
The default footer says:
Copyright © 2013 Your Name. All rights reserved.
I thought I could change that via Editor/footer.php. I swapped in the name change I wanted here:
<div><?php esc_attr_e('Copyright ©', 'preference'); ?> <?php esc_attr_e(date('Y')); ?> <?php echo get_theme_mod( 'site_copyright', 'THIS IS THE NAME OF THE WEB SITE I WANT ADDED HERE' ); ?><?php esc_attr_e('. All rights reserved.', 'preference'); ?>
[Moderator Note: Please post code & markup between backticks or use the code button. Your posted code may now have been permanently damaged by the forum's parser.]
However, after saving that change, the default tag still appears (Copyright © 2013 Your Name. All rights reserved. ).
I welcome guidance to correct what I may be doing wrong. Thank you!
No need to modify the file(s) because the theme customizer has a copyright field you can use. Go to your home dashboard, click on "Customize your site" button, then go to Basic Settings, then change the name in the field to your own. The date and copyright symbol are precoded and keeps up to date.
How do you turn "Your Name" into a link to another site?
You would have to modify the footer.php file code and hard code the link in there by wrapping the link around the copyright or take out the full code and add your own code to replace what is there.
I cannot locate the customize your site button. I upgraded to 3.7.1.
It will be on your admin's home page of the dashboard, or you can go to Appearance >> Customize
