Support » Theme: Great » Editing functions.php is not changing the footer

  • I wish to due some modifications to the footer.

    I do wish to give the author his credits, but I feel it should be a bit less intrusive. I wish keep a link to the theme homepage at the footer.

    I have come across people who advise that a child theme is the best way to accomplish this. But, being an amateur, I find creating a child theme too complicated for me.

    Editing the text under great_copyright_infotext of functions.php is not changing my footer.

    How can I do this?

    footer.php is not having all the details. See here:

     * The template for displaying the footer.
     * @package Great
    // Theme Footer Copyright Info-Text
    echo great_copyright_infotext();great_wp_footer();wp_footer(); ?></body></html>


    the item in footer come from function great_copyright_infotext(); and great_wp_footer();
    if you want to add item in the footer you can add you custom in footer.php.
    but if you want to change the footer.php you can edit in function great_copyright_infotext(); and great_wp_footer();

    example if you want to change the copyright, find “function great_copyright_infotext(){ //content }” and add your custom in there

    Hope it’s Helps

    Thanks! I had some idea of the same.

    I had already edited great_copyright_infotext (which i found in the functions.php file) and it did not work as I had mentioned above.

    I am not able to find the location of the other function. Is there a way to easily locate these functions?
