Editing Copyright Info in Footer

Hi everyone,

I'm using AffiloTheme v4, and I'm looking to edit the copyright notice at the bottom so it reads: 2014 'my website' All Rights Reserved.

You can see how it's done on the Enlightenment Gateway site.

How do I go about this? I've already looked in the footer.php file and I can't see what can be edited. It's a bit baffling.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Rich.

Hi Rich,

Which child theme are you using? On my test site this copyright notice was on by default. Do you not have any copyright notice at all?

Hi Aletta,

I don't think I'm using any child theme. In Wordpress, the active theme is 'AffiloTheme v4', version 4.1.26.

Yes, the copyright notice appears by default, but it just appears as '©2014 . All Rights Reserved'. I'd like to change that to '©2014 Beat Skills All Rights Reserved', or maybe something else in the future.

That's how it is on Enlightenment Gateway as well. I can't work out where this bit of text can be edited though.

Thanks, Rich.

Oh, what happens if you give your website a title? Like what they've got as "Test" in this screenshot:

If you deleted it at some point (maybe because it showed up in REALLY BIG TEXT across the top of your screen ;) you won't have anything in that copyright.

But the copyright just pulls the website name and slaps it in there like meat in a sandwich, by the looks of it.

Aha, that's it. You're right, I deleted it quite early on.

Thanks Aletta!
