    Hi,

    I am using the Attitude theme. I need to change and add quite a lot to the footer. Development website is here.

    I have seen the other threads which show how to change the one line copyright text in the Attitude theme footer but I have a large amount of legal wording that needs to be added. I have the html in a text widget at the moment, I just don't know where to put it in this theme at the bottom of the page.

    Can you advise how to add additional lines to the Attitude footer, the bit where the Copyright text is?

    Do you have a child theme set up? That would be the first step so that your changes are not lost when the theme is updated -

    Hi @WPyogi,

    thank you for your response.

    So far I haven't needed a child theme with the Attitude theme because I have used the 'Custom CSS' box that the theme provides. I haven't made any changes to the theme files, all of my CSS changes are in the 'Custom CSS' box.

    However, yes I will need to create a child theme for this copyright footer change and I know how to create the child theme.

    What I don't know how to do is how to add the additional text to the copyright footer and where to add it to?

    Hi @WPyogi,

    I've just created a child theme, put the code in the functions.php file and activated the theme.

    That changes the copyright line fine but how do I add additional lines to the footer?

    I need to add something like this in after the copyright line...

    <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="color: #f9551e;">Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.</span></strong></p>
    <p style="text-align: center;">For mortgages we can be paid by commission or a fee usually 0.5% of the loan amount.</p>

    Hi - can you post your footer.php file? I think you'll want to add a new div below where that copyright section is output.

    Also, you may want to use External CSS for that section of text above - just a bit better coding practice and easier to maintain. You can easily add it to your new child style.css file.

    This is the footer.php for the attitude theme, is that what you mean?

    <?php
    /**
     * Displays the footer section of the theme.
     *
     * @package 		Theme Horse
     * @subpackage 	Attitude
     * @since 			Attitude 1.0
     */
    ?>
    	   </div><!-- #main -->
    
    	   <?php
    	      /**
    	       * attitude_after_main hook
    	       */
    	      do_action( 'attitude_after_main' );
    	   ?>
    
    	   <?php
    	   	/**
    	   	 * attitude_before_footer hook
    	   	 */
    	   	do_action( 'attitude_before_footer' );
    	   ?>	
    
    	   <footer id="colophon" class="clearfix">
    			<?php
    		      /**
    		       * attitude_footer hook
    				 *
    				 * HOOKED_FUNCTION_NAME PRIORITY

    		       */
    		      do_action( 'attitude_footer' );
    		   ?>
    		</footer>
    
    		<?php
    	   	/**
    	   	 * attitude_after_footer hook
    	   	 */
    	   	do_action( 'attitude_after_footer' );
    	   ?>	
    
    	</div><!-- .wrapper -->

    This is in my child theme functions.php file:

    <?php
    
    // Remove old copyright text
    add_action( 'init' , 'sfs_remove_copy' , 15 );
    function sfs_remove_copy() {
            remove_action( 'attitude_footer', 'attitude_footer_info', 30 );
    }
    
    // Add my own copyright text
    add_action( 'attitude_footer' , 'sfs_footer_info' , 30 );
    function sfs_footer_info() {
       $output = '<div class="copyright">'.'Copyright © [the-year] [site-link] Powered by: SUPER MARTIANS FROM MARS! '.'</div><!-- .copyright -->';
       echo do_shortcode( $output );
    }

    Okay, sorry it took me a while and I'm not at a computer I can easily test this one right now - but see if this works:

    Right after this (in the functions.php file):

    <!-- .copyright -->

    Add:

    <div id="footer-info">
    PUT YOUR CONTENT IN HERE
    </div> <!-- #footer-info -->

    We'll probably need to add some CSS to make that look right, but let's see where that gets to.

    Oh wow that's beginning to work, thank you so much :)

    I haven't added all the content yet because I wanted to check it worked first. I've made a start here
