    Hello, could you please tell me how to edit the footer. On the pages site-wide footer it says copyright 1978 to 2011 and it needs to be updated to 2012. The site URL is http://www.adaptationpractice.org.
    thank you

    in wp-admin you may go to
    appearance->editor-> under templates select your used template->click on footer.php to open the file in editor. and finally search for 1978 to 2011 ... and finally update file...

    before editing copy content of your file to an textexditor on you computer... so in worst case you can recover your footer.php

    Just want to thank you for your helpful answer! I was trying to edit the footer on our custom designed site (spent many frustrating hours trying to figure out where the code was "hidden")until I thought "Why not ask WordPress for advice?". Found your explanation and it allowed me to do it perfectly - and I'm not the web site guru, just the non-technical admin+++ person in our 2 person business!

    Wonderful! Thanks again.

    I tried doing this on my end and when I go into the footer.php, there is no number to update. Our website currently displays ©2012 and we need to update to ©2013. Also, I'm trying to update the copyright date on a pop up Important Disclaimers and Info menu that we display on all of our blog posts and can't figure out where to go to edit that either. Please help!

    @rmaner - please start your own thread - this one is outdated and not all themes are designed the same way.
