I can easily change the footer background color on my theme’s options page. However, if I do that it only changes the background for the footer widget area. What I wanna do is change the background of the copyright area to match the outer background of my blog.
Is there a code I could add to my footer.php file to make it possible?
I’d really appreciate if someone would help me with this.
When modifying themes you’ve not built from scratch, try using a Child Theme. Child Themes inherit the functionality of your theme, but enable an environment to make modifications without compromising them whence the theme updates.
You need to add a <div> around your copyright information, then style that div. Perhaps in the footer.php template?
