Footer Credits

Description

This plugin only works with themes that have added support.

Footer Credits provides a standardized method for making theme credits editable. It registers a new section and fields in the Customizer for modifying the credits and choosing how they appear.

Theme authors, let your users and customers know your theme supports the Footer Credits plugin.

If your theme doesn’t work with Footer Credits, ask the developer to add support. Instructions can be find in the Other Notes section.

Notes

If you’re a theme author and want to add support, all you need to do is pass the default credits string through a footer_credits filter.

1. Create a template tag with the default credits and filter:

<?php
if ( ! function_exists( 'themename_credits' ) ) :
/**
 * Theme credits text.
 */
function themename_credits() {
    $text = sprintf( __( '%s by Cedaro.', 'themename' ),
        '<a href="https://www.cedaro.com/wordpress/themes/hyalite/">Hyalite</a>'
    );

    echo apply_filters( 'footer_credits', $text );
}
endif;

2. Then call the template tag somewhere in the footer of the theme:

<footer class="site-footer">
    <div class="credits">
        <?php themename_credits(); ?>
    </div>
</footer>
