    I’ve tried using both the Genesis Simple Edits and Genesis Simple Hooks plugins to edit the copyright data in my footer.

    Neither seem to be working after multiple edits and saves.

    I’ve seen some answers on here telling me to edit things in the code but if I can’t do this with the plugins, what’s the point?

    Use the code for customizing the entire footer and edit the text and HTML in the code

    I don’t even know where to place this code.

    Why don’t the plugins work?

    The plugins do work.

    Please copy this code by clicking the This Gist link and then the view raw link.

    Paste it at the end of your child themes functions.php file using a text editor like Notepad++.

    You will need to modify the text/HTML in the code to your own.

    Okay. Well how would I make the plugins work for my site?

    There are a lot more customizations I would like to make than simply this copyright.

    I’m using the latest version of the Metro child theme and StudioPress Genesis on a multisite installation.

    I also uninstalled and reinstalled the plugins to the latest version.

    Help to make these plugins work would be greatly appreciated.

    I placed the gist code in the functions.php as you recommended.

    This is the result http://imgur.com/sF5DxBT you can see here.

    Is it the way the child theme is designed that is causing the conflict?

    What conflict? Looks ok to me.

    You can either use the plugin and remove the shortcodes which generate the footer credits or use the code. Better not to use both so i would deactivate the plugins or and use the code or remove the code and use the plugins.

    You don’t see the conflict? Did you see the attached link on imgur?

    I’m getting the credit information twice now. I want to edit the the footer credentials that are still stating “Copyright © 2013 ·Metro Theme · Genesis Framework by StudioPress · WordPress · Log out”

    I suggest you use either the plugins or code.

    If you use the code, you will need to remove whatever you want removed.

    Using the plugins, you can simply remove the shortcodes from the footer then clear your browser cache.

    I don’t think you’re understanding. I don’t simply want the credit information anywhere especially not in the white portion.

    I’ve viewed it in multiple devices and the “Copyright © 2013 ·Metro Theme · Genesis Framework by StudioPress · WordPress · Log out” is still displaying in the grey area at the bottom of the page. I want to edit and remove that text.

    Using the Genesis Hooks plugin, you can see that I’ve placed the word TEST in every single portion where you can edit the hook. However, TEST has not shown up in the section I want to edit.

    This link is to an image demonstrating what I mean. Please look! http://prsntbl.com/hook-not-here.jpeg

    Brad,

    I realized the problem. Instead of editing the footer, I needed to edit the function custom_footer_creds_text().

    Thanks for your help.
