    I guess I thought this would be a pretty simple thing to change, but I am finding it more difficult.  I have installed the Simple Edit plugin, but I don’t understand how to change the short codes.  Or can you?  What is the easiest and best way to change the links in the footer?  Website:inspiredtowrite.com

    Rather than trying to change the short codes, why don’t you just override what is in there, and replace it with whatever you want?

    How do I do that?  I could not find the links anywhere in the code.

    In the simple edits, there is a space called “Footer Output”, if you check that box, it will override all the code that is currently in the footer area.  (You don’t need to look for the existing links in the code.)

    Then, you would put your own links into the text box. Something like:

    Copyright [footer_copyright] <a href=”www.yourURLhere”>information about your affiliate here</a>

    For some reason, when I change the code, the links add my home page, too. i.e. the link is (http://inspiredtowrite.com/ http://inspiredtowrite.com/genesis) ??  Here is the code I added:

     

    <div class=”gototop”><p>[footer_backtotop]</p></div><div class=”creds”><p>Copyright [footer_copyright] <a href=”http://inspiredtowrite.com/newstheme”>NEWS THEME</a> Powered by <a href=”http://inspiredtowrite.com/genesis”>Genesis Framework</a> [footer_loginout]</p></div> [footer_loginout]</p></div>

    Okay, I got it to work, just retyped it – strange.  Now, I would just like it to be aligned to the right side instead of underneath on the left.

    Does anyone know how to move the footer to the right side?
