Support » Fixing WordPress » adding a permanent footnote.

  • Can anybody put me right on this? I have a good few guest authors who can post directly on the blog. I want to add a footnote to the each post stating that the contents of the post are the views of the Author and the Author is solely responsible for the contents of this post.
    I don’t want to have to add this every time, or have the author add it every time.
    How can I make this appear as a permanently appearing, un-deletable footer to EACH post? Anybody?

  • Edit it in your theme’s footer.php 😀

    Make a child theme, copy the footer over to it, edit 🙂

    Hi, thanks,
    but I think you are picking me up wrong. I don’t want to change the theme footer. I want the text “The views expressed in…” to automatically appear as the last lines of the actual post, whatever that post is, or whoever makes it. Legalities…

    Then edit single.php 🙂 Same idea. Figure out what the ‘right’ file is to put it where you want, and either use a hook to insert or edit the theme file directly.

    Ok, thanks. I’m pretty new to all this, but will have a go at it anyway.

    Excellent, that work, thanks.
