    try to edit footer.php

    dashboard - appearance - editor: select footer.php from the list on the right - make sure your theme is selected at the top.

    I assume you want the area with the copyright info to be higher?

    For tha you must edit style.css.

    Look for the following info:

    #copyright {
    height: 28px;
    }

    You can then replace the height by a bigger number.

    In order for your footer to look good, you will have to remove the line that says:
    background-image:url(images/footer.png);

    You can then add some info next to the copyright by editing the footer.php file as alchymyth suggested.

    Hope that helps.

    with the given information, you should be able to add additional information to the footer.

    what is the code of footer.php right now (please paste the code into a http://pastebin.com/ and post the link to it here - see http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Posting_Code ),
    and what do you want to add where?

    it might help if you post a link to your site to illustrate your problem.

    to see changes to the styles immediately, you might need to clear the browser cache.

    Sorry,alchymyst...My thanks go for you too...
    After I changed font size and height there,I think previous height size couldd be enough well.
    Now,I see that,it could be much better if both sentence have been in the same line. I try to do in .css like that :

    "
    <div id="copyright">
    <p style="text-align: left;">Merry and Healthy does not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. See additional information</p>
    <p style="text-align: right;">Copyright &copy 2011 Merry and Healthy Co. All rights reserved.</p>
    </div><!-- /copyright --> "

    Could you tell me please where I do mistake ? Sorry,I'm newbie in html and css... !
