    Hi.

    I have made a child theme of twenty twelve, and I installed footer putter to this, with great success. However, when I create a footer.php file in the child theme my entire footer disappear.

    I would like to keep the info put there by the footer putter plugin, but I would like to remove the "proudly powered by wordpress" link.

    Feel free to ask if you need anything more.

    Thanks for help in advance. :)

    I presume that when you created a footer.php then you would lose the twentytwelve_credits hook which was where the widget area was being added.

    If you are writing a new footer.php then you would need to include a hook for the widget area.

    For example,

    <?php do_action( 'my_footer' ); ?>

    Then you would set up Footer Putter settings to use the 'my_footer' hook

    You can remove the "proudly powered by wordpress" link using CSS by adding the following to your CSS file

    a[title='Semantic Personal Publishing Platform'] { display: none; }
