  • Hello!

    There is a file footer.php at wp-content/themes/spun/. You will need to edit that file. The best way to do this is by creating a child theme if you don’t have one already, because this kind of edit is 100% sure to be lost when you update.

    In the footer.php file, there is this code at rows 19-24:

    <div class="site-info">
    			<?php do_action( 'spun_credits' ); ?>
    			<a href="http://wordpress.org/" rel="generator"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'spun' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>
                <span class="sep"> | </span>
            	<?php printf( __( 'Theme: %1$s by %2$s.', 'spun' ), 'spun', '<a href="http://carolinemoore.net/" rel="designer">Caroline Moore</a>' ); ?>
    		</div><!-- .site-info -->

    You will need to edit this:

    <a href="http://wordpress.org/" rel="generator"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'spun' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a>
                <span class="sep"> | </span>
            	<?php printf( __( 'Theme: %1$s by %2$s.', 'spun' ), 'spun', '<a href="http://carolinemoore.net/" rel="designer">Caroline Moore</a>' ); ?>
    		</div><!-- .site-info -->

    so, if I just copy paste the below will it work?
    It did not work with me, do I need to copy paste all footer .ph from actal theme to child then do the change?

    <div class=”site-info”>
    <?php do_action( ‘spun_credits’ ); ?>

    do I need to copy paste all footer .ph from actal theme to child then do the change?

    Yes.

    Remember to wrap your code in backticks when posting in this forum.

    Yes, you have to copy the whole footer.php file to your child theme’s folder, and there, don’t replace all the code, just that couple of lines that you have pasted in, in the rows about 19-24 (although your file can be a little bit different, regarding the row numbers).

    Remember to activate the child theme so WordPress uses that, and not the original theme.

    Let me know if you were able to make it work.

    Hi, I have done exactly this;
    activated childtheme
    pasted the entire footer file in the child theme CSS
    replaced the code as shown

    but nothing happens. I’d be grateful to know what i’m missing

    <?php
    /**
     * The template for displaying the footer.
     *
     * Contains the closing of the id=main div and all content after
     *
     * @package Spun
     */
    
    $spun_facebook = get_theme_mod( 'jetpack-facebook' );
    $spun_twitter = get_theme_mod( 'jetpack-twitter' );
    $spun_tumblr = get_theme_mod( 'jetpack-tumblr' );
    $spun_linkedin = get_theme_mod( 'jetpack-linkedin' );
    ?>
    
    	</div><!-- #main .site-main -->
    
    	<footer id="colophon" class="site-footer" role="contentinfo">

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    You should have done:

    1. Activated the Child Theme
    2. Copied the “footer.php” file from the Spun theme and pasted it into your Child Theme folder
    3. Edited your “footer.php” file of your Child Theme

    I am trying the same but somehow the child theme doesn’t seems to overwrite
    the main theme
    thanks for your feedback
