    You can change it by chmodding all the files you want to edit to 666

    by doing this you need to either SSH or FTP to the server, or even in cPanel or DirectAdmin it has the ability also.

    The problem is the following: I don't see where it says: "powered" and so on, it's just this code:

    <?php
    /**
    * The template for displaying the footer.
    *
    * Contains the closing of the id=main div and all content
    * after. Calls sidebar-footer.php for bottom widgets.
    *
    * @package Cryout Creations
    * @subpackage parabola
    * @since parabola 0.5
    */
    ?> <div style="clear:both;"></div>
    </div> <!-- #forbottom -->
    </div><!-- #main -->

    <footer id="footer" role="contentinfo">
    <div id="colophon">

    <?php get_sidebar( 'footer' );?>

    </div><!-- #colophon -->

    <div id="footer2">

    <?php cryout_footer_hook(); ?>

    </div><!-- #footer2 -->

    </footer><!-- #footer -->

    </div><!-- #wrapper -->

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    </body>
    </html>

    Well, I thought that I could go to the cPanel in my domain but isn't it easier to change if from here?

    Thanks,I will try this out right now.

    Could you link me to your webpage? And for the chmodding, I was thinking you ment how do I edit the footer.php in the wordpress admin panel, that would need to be chmodded to 666.

    Hi justbobbsap,

    I suck at giving out help without a visual. So you know where the footer is, but it sounds like you need a way to access and edit the file. Are you familiar with FTP (file transfer client)? I use filezilla to access my theme files to make edit.

    If I understand what you're asking I think you need an FTP tool such as Filezilla. Its free to download.

    I have to check some of sites just to be sure and hopefully I can walk you through it.

    Well,I honestly don't know what is chmodding? I guess it's just changing the code?

    I don't know what to look for in the footer.php. I mean, I want to change it, I want it to be like: "Designed by... (me)" and so on. And I don't know what I have to edit... Is it from the Editor (WP) or I should go to my cPanel? tnx !

    Okay, so if you have access to a FTP client or anything to edit the file on the server,

    go into the theme folder

    parabola\includes\

    Open up theme-functions.php

    http://gyazo.com/3eff6644cc762260c49f33722352f98c

    Look around lines 305-311 find the line

    <div style="text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;">

    and delete

    <div style="text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;">
    	<?php _e('Powered by','parabola')?> <a target="_blank" href="<?php echo 'http://www.cryoutcreations.eu';?>" title="<?php echo 'Parabola Theme by '.
    			'Cryout Creations';?>"><?php echo 'Paяabola' ?></a> & <a target="_blank" href="<?php echo esc_url('http://wordpress.org/' ); ?>"
    			title="<?php esc_attr_e('Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'parabola'); ?>"> <?php printf(' %s.', 'WordPress' ); ?>
    		</a>
    	</div>

    I know what is filezilla... but I didn't know that I need access to the FTP stuff.. I thought that I just have to go to the Editor > footer.php and change it and that's it.

    so,what do I have to look for in the FTP to change it to "Designed..by (me)" ?

    UrbanMusicHQ found the answer for you! You're good to go once you remove the lines of code or place the text you want to appear in its place.

    Also, this is NOT really suggested as it is a public free theme, you should rep the author who did make the theme for you to use at free of charge.

    Note: If you want to place different text there, leave the

    <div style="text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;"> </div>

    or just delete it and copy that ^ code up there and then replace it with your site name and 2014 copyright

    @Andrew would you be able to even create a child theme file for that file theme-functions.php in the includes folder?

    I have had trouble sometimes with the child theme not reading the "customized" files and locations.

    If you're sure there is no theme setting in the dashboard that allows you to change this, then you can create a function in your Child Theme functions.php file to override it (and change it), e.g.:

    /**
     * Footer info
     */
    function parabola_child_site_info() {
    	$parabolas = parabola_get_theme_options();
    	foreach ($parabolas as $key => $value) { ${"$key"} = $value ; }	?>
    	<div style="text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;">
    	<?php _e('Powered by','parabola')?> <a target="_blank" href="<?php echo 'http://www.cryoutcreations.eu';?>" title="<?php echo 'Parabola Theme by '.
    			'Cryout Creations';?>"><?php echo 'Paяabola' ?></a>
    	</div><!-- #site-info -->
    	<?php
    } // parabola_site_info()
    
    add_action('cryout_footer_hook','parabola_child_site_info',12);
  16. Also, this is NOT really suggested as it is a public free theme, you should rep the author who did make the theme for you to use at free of charge.

    I understand that sentiment but the theme's here are all free for editing per their GPL license and that removing of the links is fine.

    I'm running out but when I come back I'll look at how to do that safely via a child theme. If the author is doing it the way I think it's being done then there's a neat functions.php method in a child theme that works very well.

    Edit: Ha! Which Andrew beat me to by a whole minute! Good job Andrew! ;)

    Thanks but... I can't do it -.-

    I don't know where to look for this

    "Okay, so if you have access to a FTP client or anything to edit the file on the server,

    go into the theme folder

    parabola\includes\

    Open up theme-functions.php"

    I'm in the Filezilla ...but I honestly don't know what to do and where to search for it. Daaaaaaangg!

    Plus it doesn't look like the OP is asking to remove the theme author.

    This is how you do it,

    1. First create a Child Theme, so that all you have in your Child Theme folder is a "style.css" file
    2. Then create a "functions.php" file in your Child Theme folder, so that it'll be sitting alongside your style.css file
    3. Then edit your functions.php file (from within your Child Theme) and put this code into it:
      <?php
      
      /**
       * Footer info
       */
      function parabola_child_site_info() {
      	$parabolas = parabola_get_theme_options();
      	foreach ($parabolas as $key => $value) { ${"$key"} = $value ; }	?>
      	<div style="text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;">
      	<?php _e('Powered by','parabola')?> <a target="_blank" href="<?php echo 'http://www.cryoutcreations.eu';?>" title="<?php echo 'Parabola Theme by '.
      			'Cryout Creations';?>"><?php echo 'Paяabola' ?></a>
      	</div><!-- #site-info -->
      	<?php
      } // parabola_site_info()
      
      add_action('cryout_footer_hook','parabola_child_site_info',12);
      
      ?>

    I made the child theme in a zip file if you want with exactly what Andrew said....

    [Redacted - Please don't link to downloadable files, if you want to share large excerpts of code do so through PasteBin, otherwise just post the code here]

    since you said it takes you a lot of time.

    That child theme should work the css code is

    /*
     Theme Name:   Parabola
     Theme URI:    http://www.cryoutcreations.eu/parabola
     Description:  Welcome to a world of endless possibilities! Parabola awaits you with a huge assortment of theme settings that enable you to take a fully responsive, clean and elegant design to even newer heights.

     Tags:         light, dark, two-columns, right-sidebar, responsive-layout, accessibility-ready

    */
    
    @import url("../parabola/style.css");
    
    /* =Theme customization starts here
    -------------------------------------------------------------- *

    If andrew can verify thats right... than all should be good.

    Well,

    From my http://www.example.com\cPanel or directly from my Dashboard?
    If it is directly from my dashboard- what should I do :S?

    I just can't get it still! It's my first WordPress web-site and ... I'm
    -like crazy :D if you know what I mean.

    Well, I'm not sure if yours isn't better - UrbanmusicHQ ( I mean your method) because, this is too complicated, and I've created some Pages on my wordpress site + other stuff... And I don't want to loose it :S... if u know what I mean

  27. UrbanMusicHQ

    My method would be better as it does remove the line you want. But you when you update the theme you would need to re-do it again. so you would just do what i said originally if you want to remove the line you want.

    If you look here

    http://albumjunkie.com/

    I removed it.

    Yeah,that's what I mean!

    Btw I logged into my:

    http://www.host-adress.com/cpanel and I went in to File managing and now I'm curious how to do it to sound like that:

    POWERED BY PARABOLA & DESIGNED BY .... MY NAME .. (for example)

    what do I have to do with this code to post my name instead of WordPress? Thanks!

    /**
    * Site info
    */
    function parabola_site_info() {
    $parabolas = parabola_get_theme_options();
    foreach ($parabolas as $key => $value) { ${"$key"} = $value ; } ?>
    <div style="text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;">
    <?php _e('Powered by','parabola')?> " title="<?php echo 'Parabola Theme by '.
    'Cryout Creations';?>"><?php echo 'Paяabola' ?>
    & "
    title="<?php esc_attr_e('Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'parabola'); ?>"> <?php printf(' %s.', 'WordPress' ); ?>

    </div><!-- #site-info -->
    <?php
