Footer text

Recommended Posts

Hi I'd like to create a footer that simply contains a © 2012 statement but can only find options to put nav bars or callouts etc there. How do I do this? Thanks

You can use a hook in the footer to add a DIV layer (a box) that includes your copyright info. Are you using the child theme, PlatformBase?

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Yes - but I'm not sure how to add the hook!

I can show you an example. :) 1. Open your functions.php file by going to Appearance > Editor on your Dashboard (for PlatformBase, not PlatformPro). 2. When you scroll down the file, you'll see a section where hooks are placed along with an example of a hook. Below the example is where you'll place the code for the footer text. 3. The structure of a hook looks like this: [code]add_action('HOOK_NAME', 'DESCRIPTIVE_NAME'); // ---> uncomment to load //add_action('HOOK_NAME', 'DESCRIPTIVE_NAME'); // function name function DESCRIPTIVE_NAME(){ ?> YOUR TEXT CONTENT WILL GO HERE uncomment to load" line): 1. HOOK_NAME: The hook is the piece of code that determines where you content will go on the page. Since you want your copyright info to go into the header, you'll use a hook for the footer. A list of hooks is available in Templates > Advanced Setup when you select a template to edit in the dropdown list. 2. DESCRIPTIVE_NAME: This is the name you give to a hook so that you know what it's for. In your case, it'd be helpful to make it [b]copyright_info[/b] so that you know the hook is for displaying your copyright info. You must replace "YOUR TEXT CONTENT WILL GO HERE" with the copyright info. Does that make sense so far?

I think she wants to put the Copyright content in the Footer (you said Header Catrina). I'd also mention CSS classes in terms of final positioning etc.... Great tutorial BTW >:D<

@Jenny, I use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/dynamic-dates/ a plugin that dynamically adds the date (year) with a simple shortcode. Preface it with a copyright symbol and enter the two things with your ownership in a text widget inside the footer. You do this in Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets. I use (c) [year] My Company All rights reserved.
