How do I delete the theme credits in the footer? (3 posts)

    Hey there, I'm using the ElegantWhite theme by Fimply. I want to delete the credits in the footer and replace it with my own Copyright notice and so on.

    I went to the editor, and accessed functions.php. here is how the code looks like:

    // Footer elegantwhite 
    
    function elegantwhite_footer_text() {
    $ew_text = 'Theme: elegantWhite by <a href="http://fimply.de">Fimply</a>';
    echo $ew_text;
    }

    I tried tweaking with this but either modifying or deleting any of what's in there resulted in my site being completely broken. I couldn't access anything, all I saw was a blank page (both front and back ends). So I had to access my file folder through my host's cPanel and delete the theme.

    So I'm a bit confused. Where can I delete the theme's credits and replace it with my own text/links?

    Many thanks!!

    Simple.
    If the theme supports you to do that, then edit the footer.php, and remove the credit function[s]/code[s].

    edit this line:

    $ew_text = 'Theme: elegantWhite by <a href="http://fimply.de">Fimply</a>';

    and change for example to:

    $ew_text = 'Copyright &copy; 2013 by <a href="http://example.com">Example</a>';
