[resolved] How can I edit the bottom section of my Home Page? (7 posts)

    I am new to using WordPress. I have a web site created by a friend. I'm not even sure where to find the Theme name. Is it possibly Striking?

    On my Home Page there is a section at the bottom (I thought it was called the footer, but ...?) is in three columns. I want to edit some text in that section. What is it called and how do I get to it to edit it? I have done it before, but can't remember what that section is called.

    Also, is there someplace I can find that simple kind of help, like what certain parts of the page and site are called? I am so new to this.
    Thanks.

    We need a link to your website to tell you the theme and such. It's ok to post it here.

    Your bottom sections might be managed in the "Appearance-Widgets" area.

    I don't know what you're talking about in the "Appearance-Widgets" area. I just looked there and don't see the text that's in my footer.

    Yes, your theme is Striking. You can search for their forums or other help in Google.

    I don't know what you're talking about in the "Appearance-Widgets" area.

    In your widget area you should see boxes on the right. One probably says "footer" and has text widget area in them. You need to open those and you'll see the text.

    Please keep in mind, I do not own this theme so some of this is just assuming the theme follows normal WordPress procedures.

    I am quite certain those areas are widgets since they are contained in div's with a class of "widget". (From a developer's view, that is how we identify widget areas for styling and such.)

    Thank you, racer x.
    I had looked at the Appearance - Widget page before but only looked at the one on Home Page. Thanks!

    Thank you also for the link for more help. There are things I understand, but a whole lot I do not. I'll take a look at it.

    Have a good day!
