  • You can change it by chmodding all the files you want to edit to 666

    by doing this you need to either SSH or FTP to the server, or even in cPanel or DirectAdmin it has the ability also.

    The problem is the following: I don’t see where it says: “powered” and so on, it’s just this code:

    <?php
    /**
    * The template for displaying the footer.
    *
    * Contains the closing of the id=main div and all content
    * after. Calls sidebar-footer.php for bottom widgets.
    *
    * @package Cryout Creations
    * @subpackage parabola
    * @since parabola 0.5
    */
    ?> <div style=”clear:both;”></div>
    </div> <!– #forbottom –>
    </div><!– #main –>

    <footer id=”footer” role=”contentinfo”>
    <div id=”colophon”>

    <?php get_sidebar( ‘footer’ );?>

    </div><!– #colophon –>

    <div id=”footer2″>

    <?php cryout_footer_hook(); ?>

    </div><!– #footer2 –>

    </footer><!– #footer –>

    </div><!– #wrapper –>

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    </body>
    </html>

    Well, I thought that I could go to the cPanel in my domain but isn’t it easier to change if from here?

    Thanks,I will try this out right now.

    Could you link me to your webpage? And for the chmodding, I was thinking you ment how do I edit the footer.php in the wordpress admin panel, that would need to be chmodded to 666.

    Hi justbobbsap,

    I suck at giving out help without a visual. So you know where the footer is, but it sounds like you need a way to access and edit the file. Are you familiar with FTP (file transfer client)? I use filezilla to access my theme files to make edit.

    If I understand what you’re asking I think you need an FTP tool such as Filezilla. Its free to download.

    I have to check some of sites just to be sure and hopefully I can walk you through it.

    Well,I honestly don’t know what is chmodding? I guess it’s just changing the code?

    I don’t know what to look for in the footer.php. I mean, I want to change it, I want it to be like: “Designed by… (me)” and so on. And I don’t know what I have to edit… Is it from the Editor (WP) or I should go to my cPanel? tnx !

    Okay, so if you have access to a FTP client or anything to edit the file on the server,

    go into the theme folder

    parabola\includes\

    Open up theme-functions.php

    http://gyazo.com/3eff6644cc762260c49f33722352f98c

    Look around lines 305-311 find the line

    <div style=”text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;”>

    and delete

    <div style="text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;">
    	<?php _e('Powered by','parabola')?> <a target="_blank" href="<?php echo 'http://www.cryoutcreations.eu';?>" title="<?php echo 'Parabola Theme by '.
    			'Cryout Creations';?>"><?php echo 'Paяabola' ?></a> & <a target="_blank" href="<?php echo esc_url('http://wordpress.org/' ); ?>"
    			title="<?php esc_attr_e('Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'parabola'); ?>"> <?php printf(' %s.', 'WordPress' ); ?>
    		</a>
    	</div>

    —–

    I know what is filezilla… but I didn’t know that I need access to the FTP stuff.. I thought that I just have to go to the Editor > footer.php and change it and that’s it.

    so,what do I have to look for in the FTP to change it to “Designed..by (me)” ?

    Riiight… I need to change the http://FTP... Well, thanks guys!

    Now I know what to do.

    I have forgotten many things for the past 10 months. damn it! 🙁

    THANKS AGAIN! I think that I will make it know. 🙂

    UrbanMusicHQ found the answer for you! You’re good to go once you remove the lines of code or place the text you want to appear in its place.

    Also, this is NOT really suggested as it is a public free theme, you should rep the author who did make the theme for you to use at free of charge.

    Note: If you want to place different text there, leave the

    <div style=”text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;”> </div>

    or just delete it and copy that ^ code up there and then replace it with your site name and 2014 copyright

    @andrew would you be able to even create a child theme file for that file theme-functions.php in the includes folder?

    I have had trouble sometimes with the child theme not reading the “customized” files and locations.

    If you’re sure there is no theme setting in the dashboard that allows you to change this, then you can create a function in your Child Theme functions.php file to override it (and change it), e.g.:

    /**
     * Footer info
     */
    function parabola_child_site_info() {
    	$parabolas = parabola_get_theme_options();
    	foreach ($parabolas as $key => $value) { ${"$key"} = $value ; }	?>
    	<div style="text-align:center;padding:5px 0 2px;text-transform:uppercase;font-size:11px;">
    	<?php _e('Powered by','parabola')?> <a target="_blank" href="<?php echo 'http://www.cryoutcreations.eu';?>" title="<?php echo 'Parabola Theme by '.
    			'Cryout Creations';?>"><?php echo 'Paяabola' ?></a>
    	</div><!-- #site-info -->
    	<?php
    } // parabola_site_info()
    
    add_action('cryout_footer_hook','parabola_child_site_info',12);

    Also, this is NOT really suggested as it is a public free theme, you should rep the author who did make the theme for you to use at free of charge.

    I understand that sentiment but the theme’s here are all free for editing per their GPL license and that removing of the links is fine.

    I’m running out but when I come back I’ll look at how to do that safely via a child theme. If the author is doing it the way I think it’s being done then there’s a neat functions.php method in a child theme that works very well.

    Edit: Ha! Which Andrew beat me to by a whole minute! Good job Andrew! 😉
