    Hi there,

    I am using Outreach Pro theme and I also like to amend the copyright to match with my client’s copyright policy. I am not sure should I follow the above suggestion of Chillybin Web Design. At present, there is a default copyright footer as below:

    Copyright © 2014 · Outreach Pro Theme on Genesis Framework · WordPress · Log out

    Thank you.



    @ manager- I used the snippets and added it to my funtions.php, it worked for me.

    Thanks chillybin!

    However, I am wondering shouldn’t the “My Custom Link” be replaced by the web address URL or it should be as the above shown. I also copied the snippets that was added in functions.php as below. Could you please give me a recommendation how to amend it properly if I want to show the web address next to the copyright?

    Many thanks and regards

    //* Customize the credits
    add_filter( ‘genesis_footer_creds_text’, ‘sp_footer_creds_text’ );
    function sp_footer_creds_text() {
    echo ‘<div class=”creds”><p>';
    echo ‘Copyright © ‘;
    echo date(‘2014′);
    echo ‘ · My Custom Link · Built on the Genesis Framework‘;
    echo ‘</p></div>';

    Hi essaysnark,

    It is easier to change the footer as what you recommended. Thank you. I just simply put the text in as per my customer wants.




    I merely used Genesis Simple Hooks plug in and checkboxed ‘unhook’ and then added my own text and code in the box. That seemed really simple.
