    I’m having difficulty customizing the footer credits in my Focus Theme. I’m using the Genesis Simple Edits Plugin and a couple of different short codes. I believe my problem is that I’m not affluent with short codes yet. I’m not sure which part to edit and so far, I’m just not getting it right. Have any advice for me?

    As always…Thanks!

    Remove the shortcodes for the links you Don’t want to display.

    Or use this code to do the same thing.

    Thanks Brad. I can do that, but what about adding my own text there?

    [php]
    // Customize the entire footer
    remove_action( ‘genesis_footer’, ‘genesis_do_footer’ );
    add_action( ‘genesis_footer’, ‘custom_footer’ );
    function custom_footer() {
    ?>

    You can change these HTML links and the text after the copyright without changing any of the code and paste it at the edn of your child themes functions.php file.

    Example:
    [php]
    // Customize the entire footer
    remove_action( ‘genesis_footer’, ‘genesis_do_footer’ );
    add_action( ‘genesis_footer’, ‘custom_footer’ );
    function custom_footer() {
    ?>

    You don’t recommend the Genesis Simple Edits Plugin for this?

    Yes. That is the best plugin for removing the default footer links by removing the shortcodes.

    Adding custom links is best done by adding the code above with your own HTML links.

    I think I may have just made a mistake. I tried to add the short code to the end of the functions.php file and then removed it. I’m wondering if I removed too much, because now I can’t even log in to my WP Admin or site. It just gives me a blank browser. I’m a little concerned here. Have any ideas?

    Same response when I attempt to access my dashboard via the smartphone app.

    There’s no shortcodes in the functions file. You only remove these from the Simple Edits plugin settings.

    You’ll need to access the file using FTP or File Manager in cPanel.

    Download a copy of the file and then upload a new version from your theme download.
