Support » Theme: Customizr » Customizr Footer

  • Hi,

    This is my first time creating a site. Can anyone tell me where I am supposed to go to edit the footer from

    © 2014 Integrity · Designed by Themes & Co ·


    © 2014 Integritas Resources, Inc. All Rights Reserved. · Designed by Themes & Co ·

    Do I go to My Child Theme to edit? When I go there, the only thing I see is style.css. When I go to Customzr Footer.php I don’t see anything there that references this. When I go to class-footer-footer_main.php I don’t see anything there that references this.

    I am super frustrated…

    Any help would be much appreciated.

  • Hello lhwerges,

    I’m sorry to hear your frustrated! I hope I can be of some assistance to you.

    There is a simple way to do this, and a slightly more involved way. I’ll list the simple way to fix this for you, but if it doesn’t quite work the way you want it, I can help you fix it a different way.

    The easiest way to change that is to change your Site Title in Settings > General of the WordPress Dashboard. This will change Integrity to whatever you put in there. HOWEVER, this will also change what is shown on the tab in the browser.

    IF you’d rather keep Integrity as the title on the tab in browsers, then we’ll want to edit one of the php files to tell it not to call the Site Title in the copyright section.



    Hi Danielle,

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, I’d like to change it within the php files. If you could help me with that, that would be great!




    No problem! You were super close with your progress. The change will need to be made in the class-footer-footer_main.php file.

    Once you open that file, scroll almost all the way to the bottom of the file and search for this piece of code:

    sprintf( '<p> &middot; &copy; %1$s <a href="%2$s" title="%3$s" rel="bookmark">%3$s</a> &middot; Designed by %4$s &middot;</p>',

    What you’ll have to do is change %2$s to the URL you want to link to, and both places that say %3$s to be Integritas Resources, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

    That will hard code it into your copyright section.

    Let me know if you have any more questions!



    Hi Danielle,

    Thank you for this. What am I changing the %2$s to? When I change it to the URL which I’m assuming is my web page, and then hover over ·

    it comes up that the page could not be found. But if I change it back to %2$s, then it works. Was I supposed to write something different for the URL?




    If leaving it %2$s works, that’s fine! Sorry for the confusion on that.

    Let me know if there is anything else you need!



    Thanks Danielle. Will it make a difference when there is an update from Customizr or will it stay permanent? Thank you for your help!


    If you altered the core files, afaik, your changes will be lost on the next Customizr update. It is not advisable to alter core files. So, you should undo your changes (hopefully you know what it was before) and follow the items below for your child theme.

    See this snippet for changing the footer credits.

    And these snippets for a lot of useful information.

    @deputy05 you beat me to a response.

    What I was going to do was collect the changes we’d made Lindy, and just create a child theme that you could use. This way any changes you made wouldn’t get overwritten by the updates. I’d be more than happy to help you with that quick fix. Would also eliminate you having to redo what we just did. I should have brought that up at the start, and that is my fault!

    If you’d like me to help you with the child theme just let me know.




    Hi, thank you for the information. I can undo the changes in the core files. I had already created a Child’s Theme but I only see style.css in the Child’s Theme. Where am I supposed to make these changes in Child’s Theme and what am I supposed to input? Thank you.


    No problem. Please see my reply above. Thank you for your help.

    First off, I am not an expert…I share what I know and try to point people in the right direction…I try not to give erroneous information…but I am still learning, too…

    Make sure you can put the core files back the way they were…or I guess you could re-download the parent theme…

    Depends on how the child theme was created…

    See this snippet about Customizr child theme…

    If your child theme does not have a functions.php file, you need to create one…either through FTP or through your host’s file manager…

    The footer credit snippet I linked above would go in this file…all of the snippets tell you where to put them…whether css, php, or somewhere else…follow the snippet and you should be fine…

    You will find there are a lot of very helpful members on this forum…who are far more knowledgeable than me…

    Sound advice @deputy05. You’ll be one of the experts soon!


    Thank you for the advice. I loaded the File Manager but I’m not sure what to do as far as the configuration is concerned. Any advice?

    This should be the last part of the jigsaw puzzle that you need:
