    I took over maintaining this website after the last developer pulled a disappearing act. So no getting help or info from them. I cannot figure out how to edit a few areas of the site. On the home page, http://www.communalstudies.org/ the bottom block of text, that says “from the store” and “annual conference.” Then on another page, http://www.communalstudies.org/annualconference the photo and caption on the sidebar (there are a few of these on other pages as well). I have been through every single page, every .php file, checked themes and templates, every option on this website and cannot find anything. Neither shows up as a widget when you go to appearance –> widgets either.

    I have been searching for hours but still no solutions. I have some experience with web design but it was the days before wordpress became what it is, so I am lost as to what to do now.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    You might reach out to the theme’s developer, http://www.adrifolio.com/

    Hi allisonwilcoxson, if you have access to the ftp and the database, I would:
    – do a search on the Database to at least see in which table the info are stored

    and if there is no luck maybe the info is hardcode on the php, so I would:
    – download all the files,
    – put it on a folder on your computer,
    – download Visual Code Studio, sublime or other editor,
    – open the entire folder as a project on this program and do the search on thas project. This will tell you where the string are exactly.

    Omg. Custom fields… Why did it take 4 hours to find that out. Thank you luckychingi. Totally right.
