I am using custom community, I know nothing about building sites and would like to start. i firstly want to change the footer text on my site. currently all i see is this text
<?php do_action('sidebar_right') ?> </div> <!-- #container --> <?php do_action( 'bp_after_container' ) ?> <?php do_action( 'bp_before_footer' ) ?> <div id="footer"> <?php do_action( 'bp_footer' ) ?> </div><!-- #footer --> <?php do_action( 'bp_after_footer' ) ?> </div><!-- #outerrim --> <?php wp_footer(); ?> </body> </html>
What do I need to do to change it to read – Copyright weClean Professional Cleaning Solutions 2013
help anyone please? My website is http://www.weclean.co.za
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.
