Support » Fixing WordPress » Footer and main body code editing?

  • Woodys556


    I am VERY new to this stuff but have managed to get my site up and running. I am using Twenty Ten.

    I would love to be able to figure out how to edit the copy in the footer to have a copyright and terms of use/privacy link. I would love to nix the “Powered by WordPress” link (no offense, just don’t like it) and replace it with the above info.

    I would also like to loose the repeating of the header copy where is tells you the name of the site in the footer.

    Last thing is I would like to loose/edit the copy in the main body where it repeats the page title.

    Hello Mt Washington from Prospect.

    You should create a Child theme to make your changes. If you do not, all of your changes will be lost if you update your theme.

    To hide the page title above the page content, add this to the end of your child theme’s style.css:

    h2.entry-title { display: none; }


    I am still a little confused about the whole “Child/Parent” thing. Where do I creat this in the Dashboard?



    The easiest way is to create a zip file for the child theme on your local PC and install it.

    • Create a folder for your child theme, named something like ‘twentyten-child’. Do not use spaces in the name.
    • Create a style.css file in the folder. Follow the instructions under ‘Example of a basic Child Theme’ here:
    • Optionally create an empty functions.php file for later use.
    • Optionally copy the screenshot.png file from your parent theme into the folder.
    • Zip the entire folder into a .zip file. Do not zip the individual files, only the folder containing the files.
    • Install the theme using Admin->Appearance->Themes->Install Themes->Upload

    Once the theme installs properly, activate it.
