  • you have to make a child theme and modify the footer template

    if you want only the color changed add this to your style.css

    #footer-widgets {
    background-color: #242424;

    Thank you so much for the reply, I can make a child theme with no problems at all, however with only a limited knowledge of CSS and HTML I am not sure how to go about modifying the footer template without a couple days of work and I need to have at least the home page built by this evening. Any tips on how to do that would be greatly appreciated.

    if you can make your way with plain html you can add a text widget to the footer wich includes your html code and then add the custom css in the child theme’s style.css file
    also you can make a screenshot of the old footer and add it as a image, but of course the links won’t work anymore 🙂

    Of course… lol adding a text widget to the footer is one of those things that is just above my pay grade. I am searching now to find out how to do that. I am a bit out of my depth on this one as I am generally just a graphics guy, a decent one at that, but a web developer I am not. I have built some sites and generally do okay but this footer has got me vexed. Would it be possible for you to advise me on where to add the text widget in the PHP code?

    you can add a text widget from the wordpress admin interface, go to Appearance > Widgets and then drag the text widget from the left to the Footer Widget Area

    There are 3 footer widgets above that bar that I need to use for other things. What I need to do is change the bottom part where the “powered by” & Copyright stuff is.

    to change the copyright text you have to edit the footer.php template file, first you have to make a copy of it from the parent theme folder and put it in the child theme folder, then edit it by searching for the “Powered by” text and modifying the code you need, you can put html instead of php
