[Resolved] Customize footer
Absolutely loving the new theme. It has a very intuitive feel and it has some great customization options that are making it a breeze to set up my new site. Thank you!
In the footer, I am hoping to add the address of my business, along with a contact “webmaster” email address, but there does not seem to be a footer section in the theme admin.
Since this is a free theme, I understand that you would like to keep your “Theme Horse” link prominent, but is there a way to simply stack both your links and my business info and links?
Thank you for using our theme Clean Retina and the lovely feedback.
To edit the footer you will have to edit the footer-extensions.php file which is inside structure folder inside the library folder. Go to line around 62. And you will have to edit the following code according to your need.
$output = ‘<div class=”copyright”>’.__( ‘Copyright ©’, ‘cleanretina’ ).’ ‘.'[the-year] [site-link]’.’ ‘.__( ‘Theme by:’, ‘cleanretina’ ).’ ‘.'[th-link]’.’ ‘.__( ‘Powered by:’, ‘cleanretina’ ).’ ‘.'[wp-link] ‘.'</div><!– .copyright –>’;
But you will lose the changes every time you update, so make the child theme of Clean Retina and edit there, this way you will not lose the changes in the update.
You might want to see this thread which gives a very elegant solution in the form of a snippet of php code which acts as a plugin.
It’s a very good thread and I just solved this very problem by taking the advice there
Also can I just add to the OPs feedback and say, that I believe it’s a great theme and is one of the most professional, fully featured, and honest themes that I have so far encountered on WordPress. It’s a great credit to the developers that they actually seem to value the GPL highly and they are giving great value. As soon as I have tested the theme thoroughly and have my site up and running I will make a donation, or do something to show my support and appreciation of their work
Thank you for the suggestion, Sanjiv,
When you suggest editing the “footer-extensions.php” file within the child theme… does that mean making a duplcate copy of the original “footer-extensions.php” and placing it within the child theme folder?
You don’t need to create new footer-extensions.php file in the child theme. You could see this thread http://wordpress.org/support/topic/clean-retina-theme-horse-footer?replies=7 mentioned above by Latka.
Follow the step shown by Jan Dembowski in that thread in the second post.
That should do.
I am working on the documentation of Clean Retina to improve it, I will write about how to change the footer as well within few days.
