This tutorial shows how to edit footer copyright in WordPress templates based on Cherry Framework.

WordPress. How to edit footer copyright message


  1. Locate the copyright code using the Firebug Developer plugin. You can find information on how to use the plugin in the Firebug. Mozilla Firefox plugin tutorial.


  2. In our case the text is located in static-footer-text.php in the themeXXXXX/static folder. In case such file is not available in your child theme, you need to copy this file from the CherryFramework/static folder to the themeXXXXX/static folder.

  3. You can go ahead and edit the code in the static-footer-text.php file. It may look like this:


  4. Below you will find an explanation of common WordPress core tags:

        <?php bloginfo('description'); ?>

    Displays the Tagline from the WordPress admin panel (Settings>General). It’s a website description

    <?php bloginfo('name'); ?>

    Displays the WordPress website title. Could be modified through the admin panel (Settings>General)

    a href="<?php echo home_url(); ?>/privacy-policy/" 

    Link to your home page with /privacy-policy link after that.

    title="<?php echo theme_locals('privacy_policy'); ?>"

    Displays the Privacy policy link title set in theme localization.

  5. Alternatively, you can copy html code to your admin panel and edit it there. Select the div with footer text in Firebug. Click Edit:


  6. Select the code and press CTRL+C in order to copy the html code.


  7. Go to Cherry Options->Cherry Options in WordPress dashboard. On the Footer tab you need to specify Footer copyright text. Paste the html code into there.


  8. Change the html code. Keep the same coding structure (divs, their classes and IDs) in case you need to have the same layout as the original footer copyright text. You can change the text, links, etc.

  9. We have changed the text and links.
