  • Resolved digipro11


    Hello Konstantin Kovshenin.

    I love the theme as it is easy to use, except for the footer section not sure how to add a disclaimer or privacy section.

    Is there a widget to up load for this theme so I can add the disclaimer in the footer section?

    I am not good with coding and I do not want to ruin my site.
    My site is

    Thank you for your help

    Here’s how we add the credits text on WPMag:

    add_filter( 'expound_credits_text', 'wpmag_credits_text' );
    function wpmag_credits_text( $text ) {
            return '© ' . date( 'Y' ) . ' Blah blah blah.';

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you all for your help. It is greatly appreciated.



    footer putter didn’t activate for me…..

    Hi Konstantin On which folder i have to apply that code?

    add_filter( 'expound_credits_text', 'myfirstwebsite_credits_text' );
    function myfirstwebsite_credits_text( $text ) {
            return '© ' . date( 'Y' ) . ' copyrightMrMarvellous.';

    I don’t understand where my text would go on this example:

    what goes in the blah blah…

    e.g. if your site was called ‘myfirstwebsite’

    would the code go like as above?:

    @vanessajw hey i have solved the above problem just add the below code in “functions.php” file of child theme

    add_filter( 'expound_credits_text', 'my_credits_text' );
    function my_credits_text( $text ) {
    return '';

    in between return’put what ever you want’;
    like i did

    that’s brave, I won’t touch my functions file in parent theme, every time I do it shuts me out of the dashboard forcing me to use a backup from previous day. Lucky you to not have trouble with that. In my child theme I don’t yet use FTP so I haven’t got a functions file in child theme to edit. But it’s good to know you made it work.

    I see your website has a yellow block hovering at the bottom of the home page and it hovers in other places on other pages, any ideas about that? Seems to like the sidebar widget area.

    that yellow block is a google ad. and i want that ad just below that two girls holding the smartphones on my home page but i dont know how to do that. so i have created this new topic

    Yesterday, I created the child theme. under the expound-child folder. I only have style.css file. I am trying to put copyrights on the footer. I have searched a lot of info regarding how to do put copyrights on the footer. Some said edit from footer.php and some said edit from funtions.php. Wondering if someone can tell me what’s the different between footer.php and funtions.php. According to the discussion above. Should i make new funtions.php like I did on style.css? Copy the code below and paste to the new notepad and save the file name funtions.php after that upload the file to child theme folder. Will i still see Proudly powered by WordPress…?

    add_filter( ‘expound_credits_text’, ‘my_credits_text’ );
    function my_credits_text( $text ) {
    return ‘© ‘ . date( ‘Y’ ) . ‘St. John the Baptist Catholic’;


    Thank you in advance!
