Support » Theme: Catch Kathmandu » Can’t Edit Copyright Info in Footer

  • Resolved Sharon

    (@prettybiddy)


    I want to change the copyright date in the footer from 2019 to 2020 and I don’t see the option to edit the footer any more in Customize / Theme options. In your documentation it says that is where to change the footer.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi Sharon @prettybiddy I’ve found this solution applicable in a child theme..

    You can edit funcions.php adding this function:

    function catchkathmandu_footer_content() { echo 'Copyright MYSITE. All rights Reserved. <a href="MYEMAIL">Contact</a>'; }

    It works for me..

    Thank you for the tip – I have added the code to functions.php (I added the @ sign and 2020) Catch Themes did reply when I asked about this on their website support page:

    “Hello there,
    There seems to be an issue with the footer years. The issue will be fixed and an update will be released soon. I will let you know when the update is released.
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha”

    Yes, it has already been fixed on January 15, 2020. You can check the preview from https://wordpress.org/themes/catch-kathmandu/ which shows the updated the year 2020 and it’s dynamic.

    Also, I check in site https://chickadeewebdesign.com/ and it has been updated to version 4.0.1 and the year has been fixed there too.

    No, like I said I hard-coded a new function at the end of functions.php to get that 2020 date to show up in the footer on https://chickadeewebdesign.com :

    function catchkathmandu_footer_content() { echo ‘Copyright © 2020 Chickadee Web Design. All Rights Reserved.’; }

    Now I have just deleted the new function from functions.php and the website shows 2019 again in the footer.

    You need to just put back the option to set the footer text in the Theme Options in the Customizer as your documentation says.

    thanks for the feedback but look like you have cache issue now. So, can you got “Appearance => customize” and save any change? It should solve it.

    OK I did that, I changed something in the Customizer (the tagline). Saved, cleared web cache, cleared browser cache, it still shows 2019 in the footer.

    Please update now and load the customizer then it should show the current year.

    I just replied on the Catch themes forum and it deleted my reply. Wow.

    Anyway, I would like to tell you that this solved the problem but it didn’t. I updated the theme to 4.0.2, changed something in the Customizer (the tagline), saved, and the date still shows 2019. The _transient_catchkathmandu_footer_content_new is still:

    <div class="copyright">Copyright &copy; 2019&nbsp;<a href="https://chickadeewebdesign.com/" title="Chickadee Web Design"><span>Chickadee Web Design</span></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;All Rights Reserved.</div><div class="powered">Catch Kathmandu by&nbsp;<a href="https://catchthemes.com" target="_blank" title="Catch Themes" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span>Catch Themes</span></a></div>

    I tried deleting the transient variables and browser caches. Also the web cache via WP fastest cache. This is still using the last value (2019) that was set before you removed the ability to change the footer in the Customizer.

    Thank you for fixing this in version 4.0.3

    Upgrading to 4.0.2 does not fix.. I keep the function in the child theme functions.php that works fine..

    Sharon

    (@prettybiddy)

    You’re correct – there is a version 4.0.3 that fixes the problem. They must make this version generally available.

    Version 4.0.3 is also live now.
