Trying to remove text in footer (10 posts)

    I used Theme Companion to put text into my footer area on the very bottom left, but removed it once I realized I could use the same text in the footer widget area. The problem is, the text has not been removed and I cannot locate it anywhere in my style.css.

    Using Firebug, I can see that it's located here:

    <div id="footer" role="contentinfo">
    </div>
    A
    <a href="http://www.shiftspace.in">Shift+Space </a>
    Project

    But I'm still unable to find where to remove it on my style sheet.

    Thanks!

    Which text you would like to remove from your footer?

    HI,

    Check if it is hardcoded in the footer file footer.php. Such file can be found in the theme directory (/wp-content/themes/).

    If it is there, simply delete it.

    It is nowhere in the footer.php file.

    as this is the area of the 'wp_footer()' action hook, check possibly functions.php of your theme, if you have used some 'add_action()' to 'wp_footer' ... or a plugin (?)

    alchymyth,

    It was added using a plugin (Theme Companion). Even when deactivating this plugin, the text remains.

    I did not see anything in the functions.php either...

    Very strange. There are 2 options here:

    1. Search for the text "Shift+Space" in the theme directory files

    2. Search for the same text in the database to see if it is being generated dynamically by a plugin or so.

    pardon the ignorance, but where would I locate the theme directory files and database to search for the text?

    No worries.

    The Theme files can be found in the /wp-content/themes/ directory. Each theme has it's own directory name.

    You can use FTP (http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_FileZilla) to connect to the website, download the theme files and search through them.
