    I’ve been playing with my footer settings.  I managed to use code to put Privacy Policy and Affiliate Disclaimer links in the footer, but when I tried to change the copyright to say Copyright  (c) Hilton Copywriting 2013 I broke the theme and had to reinstall the theme.

    I’m using Optimal Child theme and my site is  Ideally I’d like the copyright text centred and the Privacy/Disclaimer on the right – but I’m not very clever with code and just getting these links stretched my skills.

    This is the code I currently have:

    /** Customize the credits */

    add_filter( ‘genesis_footer_creds_text’, ‘custom_footer_creds_text’ );

    function custom_footer_creds_text() {

    echo ‘<div class=”creds”><p>';

    echo ‘Copyright &copy; ‘;

    echo date(‘Y’);

    echo ‘ &middot; <a href=””>Privacy Policy</a> &middot; <a href=””>Affiliate Disclaimer</a>';

    echo ‘</p></div>';

    Thanks in advance.




    Many ways to do this:

    Using php code

    Or install the Genesis Simple Edits plugin

    Or install the Genesis Simple Hooks plugin

    Or you can create trhe HTML in your editor and paste it in using any of these plugins or the Genesis > Theme Settings > Header and Footer Scripts



    Hi Brad,


    Thank you for the detailed explanation. I am having somewhat similar problem.   copied the footer credit code from, made the necessary text related changes and then added at the end of the functions.php file. But then got a strange result. Both the edited credit and the original credit by studipress showed. How to handle that?




    Remove the default using Genesis Simple Edits plugin



    Can’t say enough good things about using Genesis Simple edits plugin, and Genesis Simple Hooks plugin. The former is a good way to add a few customized items. The latter is a rich way to customize Genesis without wrecking the site. Master Simple Hooks and you go a long way to knowing Genesis.



    Simple edits is definitely the way to go!  I use it on all my sites

    Yes its a great way to learn about hooks and conditional tags as a stepping stone to writing custom functions and more advanced PHP coding.
