    For the final line of zbench where is the copyright(c)text held.

    I want it to say something else.

    Thanks for the above, looks like,

    <?php _e(‘Copyright’, ‘zbench’); ?> &copy;
         <?php echo date(“Y”); ?> <?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?> |
         <?php printf(__(‘Powered by %1$s and %2$s’, ‘zbench’),
            ‘<a href=”http://zww.me”>zBench</a>’,
            ‘<a href=”http://wordpress.org/”>WordPress</a>’); ?>

    is the critical line.

    Can you point me at a URL that'll advise me on how to change this.

    It currently says,

    Copyright © 2013 wiki.davelevy.info | Powered by zBench and WordPress

    I assume the &copy is the (c) symbol, and I could experiment, but any clues or references would be appreciated.

    Do you have a child theme set up - these kinds of changes should be made via a child theme - or they will all be lost when the theme is updated.

    What do you want it to say? Easiest thing is to just take out that part and hardcode what you want - or part of it anyway.

    I found function _e documented at


    It's a translation function.

    I had misread ©, it is the HTML code for (c), so by changing the string 'Copyright' and deleting the (c) symbol, I have what I want. I should probably have replaced the _e function with an echo but I didn't.

    I have done this as advised, in a child theme folder.

    Thanks to Clayton and YPyogi
