    I need to modify a WP theme footer because it has a misspelling, problem is that I don’t know where to edit. The footer.php at the editor only gives me

    </div><!– end #inner –>

    <?php genesis_before_footer(); ?>
    <?php genesis_footer(); ?>
    <?php genesis_after_footer(); ?>

    </div><!– end #wrap –>

    <?php wp_footer(); // we need this for plugins ?>
    <?php genesis_after(); ?>

    </body>
    </html>

    I’m not sure where the text is located. This is not my site and I was only ask to edit so I don’t know how it happened, the owner had someone working on it before but couldn’t reach him.

    Thank You

    In the vertical Dashboard nav there is a section called Genesis.

    Click it and a page of settings opens up. At the bottom of the right column is a section for footer content. Try entering it there and see if it applies correctly.

    Hello, thanks for the response. But when I tried putting text there, it goes below the footer. The text I want to edit is the Copyright part, because it spells Copywrite. 🙁

    try editing template file /genesis/lib/shortcodes/footer.php

    Hi, I found the footer.php on that path on one of my installations, but the site I want to edit has no “shortcodes” folder, the footer.php is located at the …/lib — problem is that it’s not the footer.php I want to edit as it contains this same code..

    </div><!– end #inner –>

    <?php genesis_before_footer(); ?>
    <?php genesis_footer(); ?>
    <?php genesis_after_footer(); ?>

    </div><!– end #wrap –>

    <?php wp_footer(); // we need this for plugins ?>
    <?php genesis_after(); ?>

    </body>
    </html>

    :/

    thanks again for the responses, I tried viewing it using Firebug and saw these

    <div id=”footer”>
    <div class=”wrap”>
    <p>Copywrite · All Rights Reserved · Privacy Statement · Disclaimer · Sitemap </p>
    </div><!– end .wrap –>
    </div><!–end #footer–>
    </div><!– end #wrap –>

    I’m still having problems locating where these codes are 🙁

    I fixed it. I just followed these instructions and installed “Simple Hooks Plugin”
