  • Andrew, this advice has helped resolve a lot of issues. Many thanks, Gill

    Hi, I have done exactly this;
    activated childtheme
    pasted the entire footer file in the child theme CSS
    replaced the code as shown

    but nothing happens. I’d be grateful to know what i’m missing

    <?php
    /**
     * The template for displaying the footer.
     *
     * Contains the closing of the id=main div and all content after
     *
     * @package Spun
     */
    
    $spun_facebook = get_theme_mod( 'jetpack-facebook' );
    $spun_twitter = get_theme_mod( 'jetpack-twitter' );
    $spun_tumblr = get_theme_mod( 'jetpack-tumblr' );
    $spun_linkedin = get_theme_mod( 'jetpack-linkedin' );
    ?>
    
    	</div><!-- #main .site-main -->
    
    	<footer id="colophon" class="site-footer" role="contentinfo">
    		<div class="site-info">
    			<?php do_action( 'spun_credits' ); ?>
    			<a href="http://www.thoughtoutthings.co.uk/">COPYRIGHT &copy; 2014 Gillian Morrison</a>

    				</a>
    			<?php endif; ?>
    			</div>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    	</footer><!-- #colophon .site-footer -->
    </div><!-- #page .hfeed .site -->
    
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    @zeaks,

    thank you. my impatience to solve, i found this post

    http://mywordpress.sterndata.com/2012/10/new-theme-twenty-twelve/

    which solved it great. thanks so much for replying with more info.

    @andrew

    sorry Andrew, not quite up on the thread etiquette yet. I wish there was a way to search within a specific plugin support forum. (maybe there is and i don’t know it yet)!

    Hi Zeaks

    this is exactly what i want to do, but after following your advice to the letter (yes, really) my site went straight to badly formatted text and grey background @_@

    this seems to happen when i tweak the child theme too much. Any guesses what i’m doing wrong. In the meantime i deleted functions/footer and took out the css, all back to normal.

    thanks ahead

    including the website, if it helps

    http://www.inspiringleaders.org.uk/

    what would be the solution for the same meteor slideshow on header on every page

    and solution for home page only?

    thanks again.

    thanks alchymyth

    For those worried about creating a child theme, the easiest way is by using a plugin. I use ‘child themify’
