How To Change Footer/Copyright Credits Using General Child Theme
I wanted to share with those who are looking to change the Copyright notice (especially on the Clipper theme) if you are using a general child theme (from WordPress.org Codex
- You will want to go into your FTP (or cPanel file manager) section and in the 'clipper-child' folder you will want to add a new file and name it 'footer.php' (you should already have 'style.css' file in the folder).
- Then copy everything (exactly as it is) in the 'footer.php' file from the orginial clipper file that you obtained from AppThemes.
- Then past the entire contents into the 'footer.php' file in the child folder.
- Then go ahead and edit the file (in the child folder) the way that you want for the copyright notice. (Remember that the child folder over-rides the content (but doesn't delete) the original code.)
*Please know that this process is ONLY for a general child theme and NOT for a designed child theme made by another designer/developer. Hope this helps lots of folks.
