  • Resolved dfl1955


    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=””>zBench</a>’,
            ‘<a href=””>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 | 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.

    @wpyogi -Yup,got a child theme, but need some help with the PHP.

    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
