I tried to change the footer copyright using simple edits plugin. Now I have code at the bottom of my page and can’t figure out how to remove it. I am a novice at best … not good with code. Can anyone help me figure out hot to fix this. the website is sellitquickhomes.com. thanks.February 6, 2013 at 11:41 pm #18583
Hi, I haven’t used that plugin, but it loos like you’re just missing your php tags.
Try adding <?php before and ?> after.
Hope that helps,

Thanks. But I don’t know where to add <?php before and ?> Could you point me to the file and location?
Sorry, I can tinker with code, but am not really that proficient. Not sure how the code could have changed, since I have not been in those files.February 8, 2013 at 12:43 pm #18977
Can you post what you placed inside of the simple edits page? Did you make any other changes anywhere, or just on the simple edits page?

You added code that should actually go into the Functions.php file. Go to Simple Edits and remove that code and save. Where did you get that code from that you put in there?

I got the code on the studio press site for code snippets where it said I customize credit in footer: http://my.studiopress.com/snippets/footer/#credits I am not sure this caused the problem. I deactivated the simple edits plug in and nothing has changed.
I have not changed any of the code files, so I don’t know how I made this mistake. Here is the code I used, but its not active now.

The code is still showing on your footer.
Where did you place that code? If you look in your functions.php file, do you see that code?

Can’t find it anywhere. I even just reloaded all the child theme code files. Could it be on the Genesis files? Should I reload those too?February 8, 2013 at 4:42 pm #19102
Deactivate the Simple Edits please so we can see what it looks like without the plugin.

I deactivated simple edits and even deleted it, but no change.February 9, 2013 at 1:07 pm #19265
Do you have a footer.php file? And, check your home.php file way at the bottom to see if you have this code and let me know.

Not in any of the php files. I checked home, footer, and theme functions. Not sure how I did this! Thanks so much for your assistance.February 9, 2013 at 1:41 pm #19273
Okay, check this. Go to Genesis > Theme Settings. Scroll all the way to the bottom – did you place the code in the last box marked Footer?

Bingo! Thanks a million.February 9, 2013 at 2:15 pm #19281
