[Resolved] Remove footer 'Powered by WordPress theme catch kathmanu'

  • I would like to remove or alter the content at the right side of footer of the Catch Kathmanu theme we are using at http://www.kelleyfowlerphotography.com

    What do I change or remove in the Footer php?
    Here is the coding =
    ———————

    <?php
    /**

     *
     * Contains the closing of the id=main div and all content after
     *

     * @since Catch Kathmandu 1.0

    First, create a child theme and then in your functions.php, create a new catchkathmandu_footer_content() function like this:

    <?php
    
    function catchkathmandu_footer_content() {
        echo "I like pie.";
    }
    
    ?>

    Obviously, replace the pie line with whatever you’d like to display in the footer.

    You are not allowed to change footer credit link in free version.

    @catchthemes

    Sorry you are not allowed to edit footer credit information in free themes. For this you need to upgrade to Catch Kathmandu Pro theme http://catchthemes.com/themes/catch-kathmandu-pro/ where you will get Footer Editor Option in your theme options panel.

    Footer credit link is the only recognition that we receive for providing free themes and free support. So, I hope you understand the issue.

    Have a nice day.

    Ah, ok I was wondering why there seem to be some sort external code talk or something in that coding up there. Felt that maybe there was some sort of “other location” of a code to keep the footer there, which is fine – as you mentioned, its a free theme. I respect that. Just use to being able to change the footer on most themes these days. And clients usually don’t like the WordPress wording being down there, I have noticed as often requested to be removed. I have a feeling this will become a trend with theme developers, which is understandable. I will just have to get small business clients to understand why paying for the theme to pro may be best. Hard to convince at the moment. 🙂

    Question though, if purchased is it a one time fee? Clients hate multiple annual bills when it comes to web stuff I’ve noticed. I’d like them to be happy.

    Thanks!

    @adbalentine: Buying Pro will enable theme for better support and more features, which brings in flexibility. Annual renewal is optional.

    Alright, then I already know my client will not be interested. As there are many themes out there that you do pay for that don’t require an annual fee, but just a one time payment (usually average cost of $50) the client(s) are open to the one time. But this client already told me if there is an annual they hold no interest. Most likely they will change their theme once decided.

    Thanks.

    As per the instructions in catchkathmandu-functions.php just add this to your functions.php in a child theme:

    function catchkathmandu_footer_content() {
    	}

    You can put whatever code you want in there. So I put:

    function catchkathmandu_footer_content() {
    	echo 'Copyright MYSITE. All rights Reserved. <a href="MYEMAIL">Contact</a>';
    }

    Catch Themes, this is illegal to add or just something you’d rather people not add? The instructions for how to do this are in your code…?

    If you could confirm, Catch Themes, just curious as well. Thank you.

    @catchthemes

    @ddxv and @adbalentine: I have already mentioned it. For Catch Kathmandu Theme, attribution is compulsory. You cannot just remove remove it. If you want to edit your footer credit, simply upgrade to Pro version.

    I agree and do understand, Catch Themes, but in the same token ddvx brought up a good point. If there is an option out there without upgrading that allows for the footer to be change, then it does make one wonder. Are you in fact confirming its illegal or is it just desired for users to upgrade?

    There is a difference in this choice of answer, so please confirm.

    @catchthemes

    @adbalentine: It’s illegal to remove attribution. There should be some kid of attribution.

    Thank you for that clarification. I can now show this to the client, and all should be clear now. I appreciate your patience.

    I apologize for going back and forth about this, I was curious so I googled this question and am pulling this quote from Chip Bennett, Theme Review Admin, in a previous post:

    When re-distributing a (or distributing a modified) GPL-licensed work, proper attribution must be maintained; however, that attribution is only required to be appropriate to the type of work.

    WordPress Themes are a conglomeration of PHP, HTML, and CSS code. Proper attribution for such code is in the source itself, not in the browser-rendered output of the PHP-parsed version of that code. Generally speaking, for WordPress Themes, such attribution may be found in comments in the style.css file, in the phpDoc header comments in the functions.php file, or in a separate file such as a readme.txt file. Such attribution is appropriate, and meets the letter and spirit/intent of the attribution requirement in the license.

    In other words: you’re not required to maintain public-facing attribution, such as a “credit link”, even up on distribution/re-distribution.

    Thank you ddxv. I will look into what the community says on that as well. Like the Catch Themes say, as long as they are being attributed, which of course makes complete sense.

    Thanks everyone.

    Come on.. “Catch Themes Member” Bust Butt for this theme. Either buy the pro or live with that spam at the bottom… please. 🙂
