Support » Themes and Templates » Empty footer.php file

  • Hello,

    I have installed a theme and want to change the foot code to add my info, etc., however, the footer.php files is empty. All it shows is:


    The page files all show: <?php get_footer(); ?>, so isn’t this calling the footer.php file?

    How can stuff be in my footer if this file is empty?

    Above the code in your file.
    <div id=footer>

    Then your code

    Then ‘</div>’

    Change original to
    ‘<?php wp_footer(); ?>

    Add at bottom

    That is what my footer looks like.

    I’m sorry I was not clear. My pages codes are all calling <?php get_footer(); ?> so that they will display a footer. They do display a footer, however, I would like to change that footer.

    So I go to the themes and edit the footer but all that is editable is:


    This does not make sense to me. Where is the information in the footer coming from other then the footer.php files?

    what looks like a footer on your blog may not necessarily be comming from the footer.php file. can you post a link to your site please?
