  • I was hoping someone could help me with this.
    I found this theme: http://host1.qualitywordpress.com and am using it on this site: http://ectech.info/
    I want to edit the footer so that not all those links appear, only the ones valid to give the theme credit. This is what the footer.php looks like:

    <?

    Anyone know what this is all about? Anyone have any recommendations on how to change this to my own custom footer, with the credited link to the theme?

  • Awesome. Thanks.
    I will try this when I get home this evening.

    Maybe I’m not doing something right because this didn’t work for me.
    My confusion may be here:

    Now visit your blog, view source (e.g. View->Page Source in Firefox), and copy the HTML between those two markers. Rename your footer.php and make a new copy of footer.php with that HTML code.

    I copy the entire HTML source to the index.php somewhere in between <!– Evil Footer Devil FOUND –> ?

    Also, the part about making a new footer.php. I’m supposed to put the entire HTML page source in the footer.php also?
    I did both, if so. I put the HTML page source in between the <!– Evil Footer Devil FOUND –>, just before the <?php get_footer(); ?> in the index.php. Then I also pasted the same HTML page source in the new footer.php file. I made sure to remove the extra footer links from the HTML page source code in the index.php and the new footer.php that is currently viewed on the site.
    What I ended up with is two header images, two bodys and two footers with some of the spam links still in one of the two footers.

    I found the perfect, and easiest, solution here:
