    on your CSS file, use this code

    #heatmapthemead-credits p {
      display: none;
    }

    on your footer,you can create a new div for your site name

    <div class="copyright">
    copyright © 2014
    <a href="domain.com">yourdomain.com</a>
    </div>

    I hope this helps.

  3. yajyolid, that's close but you're missing a step. You'll lose your changes when the theme updates if you do that.

    Instead create an activate a child theme of HeatMap Adaptive and make those changes there.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    That way any updates to the parent theme will not delete your changes.

    Sorry, I am a beginner in building a website, most of the time I only login to wordpress to make amendment. Based on Jan's suggestion, I have logged in to my cpanel and created the style.css file as below.

    /public_html/wp-content/themes/heatmap-adaptive/heatmap-adaptive-child/style.css

    Then, I pasted the code below to the file as per yajyolid's suggestion.

    #heatmapthemead-credits p {
    display: none;
    }
    <div class="copyright">
    copyright © 2014 WhatU1. All Rights Reserved.
    whatu1.com
    </div>

    But nothing seems to change on my website's footer. Please advise.

    Hi khew,
    It seems that you put your child theme inside the parent theme, I think that's the reason why it doesn't work. You must create a new folder for your child theme outside the parent theme, it goes like this:

    wp-content/themes/heatmap-adaptive-child/style.css

    for the name of your website and copyright, you need to copy the footer file folder from the parent theme to your child theme and put the code in there.

    Hello there.

    I am just confused with it.

    I am not into child theme customization though I want to delete that thing in the footer.

    One question.

    Do I also have to copy the css file from the parent theme?

    Or I'll just have to paste the code above in css file under parent theme?

    Thanks

    Hi coated_pill,

    If you only make the footer customization under parent theme chances are when the parent theme perform an update the default footer will return, that's why it is advisable to do any customization in your child theme even if it is only footer. And who knows, you will see another part of it that you want to customize as the days go by.

    I hope that helps. Regards.

    Hi coated_pill,

    Do you just want to change the text on your footer or do you want to remove it totally?
