  • I’m not one of the professional helpers here but usually the footer text can be found/edited in (your theme name here)/core/includes/theme-generator/theme-generator.php. You cannot access this through the “editor” so you will need an ftp client (like Dreamweaver) to access this file. Hope this helps and good luck 🙂

    All help is always welcome, but it’s really never a good idea to edit theme files. To make changes you should make a child theme — that way your changes won’t be overwritten when the theme is updated:


    @deoncol, it looks like that theme has widgets in the footer, so go to your widgets and see if you can change the text there.

    look at the functions.php and find a function that is using the bp_footer hook.

    I have read all your replies and some I kind of understand but cannot find the solution. The correct text was there before I updated to wordpress 3.5 then the main picture or “header” also stopped scrolling. maybe I should wait for the new update from Custom Community for the fix?
    Thank you all for your responses, I have a lot to learn.

    Since that seems to be related to WP3.5, you may want to go through the troubleshooting steps in this post —


    It may be a plug-in problem rather than your theme.

    Still cannot figure this out 🙁 I wish WordPress was easier to use for a beginner like me..
