Support » Fixing WordPress » Can't change my footer text

  • danielnealphotography



    I have tried a few different things now but nothing seems to work. I have manually gone into the footer.php file and tried changing the text but when I go to my website nothing has changed. I have tried emptying the cache on my browser but that did not work either. I was told that I might have a cache plugin or widget running but I do not. I tried disabling all of my plugins as well but nothing. I was told to update my theme because it is out of date which would probably fix the problem. However I have done hours of tweaking to it so I do not want to start from scratch. I would rather just get rid of the entire footer altogether than have to redo my website with a new theme. Any ideas as to how to change my footer first and foremost would be great or on how to get rid of it or the text altogether is fine as well. The thing I am trying to change is the phone number. Currently it reads 209-304-4717 but I want it to read 415-858-9978 which is what I changed it to in the footer.php file.

    Here is my site:

    And here is my footer code which I have erased and changed but nothing happens:

    <div id=”footer”>
    <div id=”footer-wrapper”>
    <div id=”footer-center”>
    <div class=”container”>
    <?php if (!is_home()) { ?>
    <div id=”footer-widgets” class=”clearfix”>
    <?php if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’) || !dynamic_sidebar(‘Footer’) ) : ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </div> <!– end #footer-widgets –>
    <?php } ?>

    <div align=”left”> | 415-858-9978                                                                                                         © 2013 Daniel Neal – All Rights Reserved.
    </div> <!– end .container –>
    </div> <!– end #footer-center –>
    </div> <!– end #footer-wrapper –>
    </div> <!– end #footer –>

    </div> <!– end .center-highlight –>

    </div> <!– end #content-full –>

    Thank you

    Have you asked Elegant Themes for help – they provide help for their commercial themes.



    I have and they are great but for some reason this is stumping them. I have 4 separate posts I made on their forum for this problem but they can’t seem to figure it out.

    That’s unfortunate. If you have a query regarding one of the themes distributed on, let us know.
