I used Theme Companion to put text into my footer area on the very bottom left, but removed it once I realized I could use the same text in the footer widget area. The problem is, the text has not been removed and I cannot locate it anywhere in my style.css.
Using Firebug, I can see that it’s located here:
<div id="footer" role="contentinfo"> </div> A <a href="http://www.shiftspace.in">Shift+Space </a> Project
But I’m still unable to find where to remove it on my style sheet.
A <a href="http://www.shiftspace.in">Shift+Space </a> Project
Check if it is hardcoded in the footer file footer.php. Such file can be found in the theme directory (/wp-content/themes/).
If it is there, simply delete it.
as this is the area of the ‘wp_footer()’ action hook, check possibly functions.php of your theme, if you have used some ‘add_action()’ to ‘wp_footer’ … or a plugin (?)
It was added using a plugin (Theme Companion). Even when deactivating this plugin, the text remains.
I did not see anything in the functions.php either…
Very strange. There are 2 options here:
1. Search for the text “Shift+Space” in the theme directory files
2. Search for the same text in the database to see if it is being generated dynamically by a plugin or so.
pardon the ignorance, but where would I locate the theme directory files and database to search for the text?
