Support » Theme: Hoffman » Remove/add to footer

  • Resolved Michael K.


    I’m looking to make two modifications to the footer, preferably using the Custom CSS feature rather than editing the footer.php directly:

    1. Embedding a Mailchimp opt-in form ABOVE the footer menu. (I think it would look sleek in the all-black footer)

    2. Removing “Theme by Anders Norén.”

    Hi @mmkurko,

    The second one is easy – adding this to the Custom CSS field should work:

    .credits .fleft p:last-child { display: none; }

    As for the first one, you can’t add the Mailchimp form using CSS only – you’d need to copy the footer.php to a child theme and add it there for that to work. You can find more information about child themes here:

    (You could also output the form in a widget and position it over the footer using CSS, but given the difficulties with getting that to work in different screen sizes, I wouldn’t recommend it.)

    Thank you for responding. It’s not often you ask a question about a theme and have the creator answer you directly.

    I’ve removed the footer but decided to forego the Mailchimp form in the footer for a less elegant bottom page bar.

    Since I have your ear, I’d like to take the opportunity to say that your Hoffman theme (and Hemingway which I’ve used before) are some of the cleanest, elegant, and most aesthetically pleasing themes I’ve ever seen. I haven’t tried any of the others, but I’m sure they are created with the same style and integrity. I very much appreciate your efforts, skills, and dedication to keeping these themes updated and available.

    Thanks again!
