    Just the functions.php file – you don’t need to replace the whole folder.

    Pffff … I’m back online :)

    Should I try to do it through the plugin you recommended?

    Well I am looking at the plugin – but I have no idea how to replace what is currently there:

    Copyright [footer_copyright] [footer_childtheme_link] · [footer_genesis_link] [footer_studiopress_link] · [footer_wordpress_link] · [footer_loginout]

    With what is needed to have

    Copyright (copyright sign) 2013 – (link to my website) – All rights reserved

    Could you help me?

    Thank you!!!

    I also wanted to change the comments words underneath each post, and notice you can do that too in the plugin.  But again, I am a bit lost as to what I am supposed to change to get what I’d like:

    “No comments” -> “Share your opinion”

    “x comments” -> “x great opinions, add yours”

    Since you are looking at the code, I’d thought it is better to ask it at the same time :)

    OK – check the box “Modify Entire Footer text”, and then put this code in the box (change the URL and add your site name):
    [css]Copyright [footer_copyright] <a href="www.yourURLhere">Your website here</a> – All Rights Reserved[/css]

    That worked, thank you :)

    Would you mind helping me with the comments changes? Or else point me in the direction as to how I can find out what to change?

    As far as changing the comment structure, if you want to change the words, you’ll probably need to change your functions.php, and I don’t think you want to do that today :) – you can make some changes, but it’s mostly shortcuts – there’s a full list in there.

    I don’t want to change the button to submit a comment, just the text displayed under the post title.

    Currently is had:

    [Date] by [Author]  “no comments” or “x comments”

    I would like that to be “Share your opinion” or “x opinions, add yours”

     

    Not sure if I am explaining that correctly…
