Footer Problem

  • I’m having the same problems with the “techified” theme. it’s got “Copyright © 2009. Techified theme by Cell Phones. Supported by BlueHost Web Hosting, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile & Sprint” with 6 links to those sites. Now I’d rather just have “Powered by WordPress” and possbily the author bug I’m lost on correcting this. Does anyone have an idea on fixing this?
    Thanks,

    Al.

  • In footer.php remove the text you don’t want and add this:

    <p><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> is powered by <a href="http://wordpress.org/">WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?></a></p>
    
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    BUT FIRST! – Check the copyright of the theme to ensure you are permitted to do this.

    here’s whats in footer.php, there’s no reference to the present contents there, I’m totally lost:

    <?php if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’) || !dynamic_sidebar(3) ) : ?>
    <div class=”box”>
    <h3>Recent Entry</h3>
    <div class=”box_content”>

      <?php get_archives(‘postbypost’, 5); ?>

    </div>
    </div>

    <div class=”box”>
    <h3>Recent Comments</h3>
    <div class=”box_content”>

      <?php if(function_exists(“get_recent_comments”)) : ?>
      <?php get_recent_comments(); ?>
      <?php else : ?>
      <?php mw_recent_comments(5, false, 35, 15, 35, ‘all’, ‘

    1. %author_name% in %title%
    2. ‘,’d.m.y, H:i’); ?>
      <?php endif; ?>

    </div>
    </div>

    <div class=”box”>
    <h3>Most Popular Posts</h3>
    <div class=”box_content”>
    <?php if(function_exists(“akpc_most_popular”)) : ?>

      <?php akpc_most_popular(5); ?>

    <?php else: ?>
    Please install popularity contest plugin.
    <?php endif; ?>
    </div>
    </div>

    <div class=”box”>
    <h3>About Author</h3>
    <div class=”box_content”>
    <?php echo stripslashes(get_option(‘techified_about_us’)); ?>
    </div>
    </div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    That’s sidebar.php you want footer.php

    thanks, it worked but now the entire footer disappeared (which is not a bad thing but nothing is appearing in the footer at all.

    it finally appeared but on the right side of the page

    It’s probably missing a closing or opening div…can you post a link?

    You’re missing 4 closing divs so that’s not going to help you too much….you should track those down and close them in the appropriste places.

    Also, the footer info isn’t inside a div so wrap the wordpress link line in
    <div id="footer">
    ….and don’t forget to close it. 😉

    You are clearly a wordpress guru and I’m not, could you kindly “dumb this down” to my level? perhaps write the code out so I understand it?

    Thanks,

    Al

    <div id="footer">
    
    <p><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> is powered by <a href="http://wordpress.org/">WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?></a></p>
    
    </div> <!-- end #footer -->
    
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    If it’s still in your sidebar, try this (but I’d be really surprised if it works):

    <div style="clear:both;"></div>
    <div id="footer">
    
    <p><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> is powered by <a href="http://wordpress.org/">WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?></a></p>
    
    </div> <!-- end #footer -->
    
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    
    </body>
    </html>
