[resolved] Remove most of footer (2 posts)

    Hey again! So I was making my very first website and ran into a problem with this theme. The footer is huge. All I need there is the company logo (which I would've liked to be my own custom logo, but I heard that will soon be implemented, or at least I hope it will be), and that's about it. No search or archives or even pages. How would I remove those?

    Step 1:

    1. Use FTP [e.g. filezilla] to access your site
    2. make a backup of all files of your site

    Step 2: make a back-up of the content = database of your site

    1. dashboard > tools > export > all content > download exportfile
    2. If required: confirm installation of export tool and run the export

    You now have a fallback position, should things go wrong!

    Step 3: Create a childtheme

    Why a childtheme?
    Don't make any changes to a theme itself. Instead make the changes to a childtheme. Should the author of your original theme update the theme, your changes in the childtheme will not be overwritten. Your site with your adaptations will remain intact.
    Suggestion: use the 'one click childtheme plugin'.

    1. Install and activate 'one click childtheme plugin
    2. create the childtheme
    3. Dashboard > appearance > Themes > activate the childtheme
    4. Make the changes in the CHILDtheme!
    - copy php files / css-file(s) of the original theme [as required] to the childtheme directory and edit them as required.

    Step 4: Finally: making some changes [the quick and dirty way]

    1. FTP:copy the files 'footer.php' 'footer-one.php' and 'footer-two.php' of the original theme to the childtheme-folder
    2. Open 'footer-one.php' and 'footer-two.php' in an editor like 'notepad++'[not a wordprocessor]and clear the content
    3. add your logo and any text you like: [example] to both files You can change things like height, width etc.
      <img src="http://s.wordpress.org/style/images/wp-header-logo.png?1" alt="example of logo" width="304" height="228">
    4. save the changes and re-upload using ftp
    5. browser: check result and adjust as required
