Support » Fixing WordPress » Twenty twelve Footer text replacement

  • Hi all,

    I’ve been looking into removing the “proudly powered by wordpress” link in the footer and replacing it with my own text but to no avail.

    I’ve copied the footer.php from the twenty twelve footer.php theme and created a new footer.php for my child theme and uploaded it but no changes were made. here’s the code.

    Do I just remove <?php do_action…..’WordPress’ ); ?> and replace with my own text?

    You could remove this bit

    <?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'twentytwelve' ), 'WordPress' ); ?>

    Ok, i’ve done that and it’s been removed from all the pages except the home page.

    Now I just need to figure out why that is and add my own text somewhere in the same area of the file. Any Ideas?


    Whoops, spoke too soon. It didn’t work, the text is still there. I’ll play around with it.

    Check again ian277.

    I changed:

    <?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'twentytwelve' ), 'WordPress' ); ?>

    <?php printf( __( 'WHATEVER YOU WANT OR BLANK', 'twentytwelve' ), 'WordPress' ); ?>

    And it worked for me.

    I want to do that too, but the text I replace it with has to be an active link to other content on my site (the disclaimer). Anyone know how to code a link in the footer.php?

    Hey Diana, your chances of someone replying to help you are much better if you start a new thread rather than posting in outdated ones. Threads with no replies generally get answered faster here…

    Include the specifics of what you want to do and a link to your site in a new thread.

    Ah WPyogi, thanks for that tip! Meanwhile, I worked out how to do it by kind of re-inventing another post answer on a related topic.
