Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing the footer credits, part of WordPress Themes: Customizing Themes with Genesis.
- [Instructor] Another really common customization…to genesis child themes is updating the footer area,…specifically, the footer credits text.…So by default, every StudioPress child theme…is going to have this particular copyright,…except for, it'll say the name of whatever theme it is.…Now if you purchased a theme from a third-party developer,…they may have updated the copyright to be to themselves.…But likely, this is your site,…so you want to change that footer credit text…to match whatever you want, your brand.…
And thankfully, there's a filter in genesis…that let's us change that pretty easily.…So I'm going to head back to the genesis framework file.…And if you're wondering where we might find the code…to change that, and you guessed footer.php,…you were correct.…So I'm going to scroll down a little bit,…to find exactly what I'm looking for.…And here, starting on line 145,…we've got this genesis do_footer function.…And within that, we can see this variable called creds_text,…that's spitting out that copyright we just looked at.…
