    Hi, I’ve just had a play around with the footer.php and came up with this solution. (deleted conditional php tags that were getting in the way).

    <footer id="colophon" role="contentinfo">
    		<div id="site-generator">
         <!-- Custom content START -->
          <!-- I've just deleted the php that displays your blog-name, etc. -->
          <a href="http://yourlinkhere.co.uk"> your Footer Link </a>
         <!-- Custom content END -->
    
    		</div>
    	</footer><!-- #colophon -->
    </div><!-- #container -->
    
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    @albertstrun – what happens to those changes when the theme is updated?

    Ahh yes; cart before the horse. I am hoping /assuming Paul is using a child theme?

    hi guys I found a solution , I just deleted the word “front”
    from the footer php file

    `<?php if ( (is_page() && ! is_paged()) || (is_page_template(‘alt_blog_template.php’) && is_page() && ! is_paged())

    it worked!

    I hope you are, in fact, using a child theme so that your changes won’t be permanently lost when the theme is updated –

    no im not using a child theme, never heard of it before now
    il have to look in to it

    is it to late to create a child theme ive already made changes to
    the theme?

    It’s never too late, but it’s more work – as you’ll need to move your changes to the child theme. But it’s really going to be worth it to do that now to avoid a bigger mess down the road when the theme is updated and/or you don’t update and eventually run into compatibility issues.

    Do you know which files you’ve changed? It’s not usually that hard to more changes to a child theme – for style.css you can compare yours to the original and for .php files (except functions) you can just put a copy in the child theme. Functions.php is more complicated.
