I’d like to edit the footer at the bottom of the page, where it says evolve theme by Theme4Press • Powered by WordPress
I know I have to have a child theme, which I’m just trying to learn how to do. Once I’ve got that – how is it that I can edit the text here please?

This is all new to me. I’ve just looked into child themes. Which theme do I use as a child theme to upload for this?
Am I right in thinking I need to do this to edit this text?
I’m really confused with all this now – any advice you can give would be great.

Sorry, ignore that last message – I’ve now found that I just needed to create a directory and a style.css sheet.
I’ve done this, but my hosting provider has said to come to you for help with this sheet.
the following is what I’ve found that I should apparently put in here, and I’ve made the changes I think are correct, but would you mind checking this for me please (i didn’t know whether to change the version and the tags) – and letting me know of anything that’s wrong – then what I need to add to edit the text in the footer, please?
I’d really appreciate your help with this – I’m getting really lost.
Thankyou very much.

those parameters seem to be fine….if the layout of the child theme looks OK then the coding is OK also 🙂Nicola BoothSpectatorFebruary 7, 2014 at 9:39 pmPost count: 21Been thanked: 0 times
I don’t have a child theme to view. that’s what all my garbled messages above were about – I thought I had to upload a child theme, then when I looked into it and tried it, I realised I didn’t have one to upload.
I then found some documentation that said all I had to do was create a directory in the theme folder, and create the style.css sheet, which should include the code i provided in my last message.
So, I’m not sure what to do now. Am I right in thinking I just need to enter the relevant code into the bottom of the style sheet, and my site will reflect it? If so, could you advise what this code is – I’d like to include me own text where it says evolve theme by Theme4Press • Powered by WordPress

that text is in library/functions/functions.php file, line #290, so you need to copy this file in the theme child folder to overwrite the file and modify per your needs. please refer to http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes , also there are plugins for child themes creation http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=child+themeNicola BoothSpectatorFebruary 8, 2014 at 8:15 pmPost count: 21Been thanked: 0 times
I really appreciate your help, but I’m afraid I didn’t really understand much on those links.
What I’d like to do is edit the text — evolve theme by Theme4Press • Powered by WordPress — which is at the bottom of the page
I now have the style.css sheet saved, and the code in it is as I pasted in an earlier message.
If all I have to do is add another few lines of code then I’d really appreciate it if you could tell me exactly what to type. If it’s much more complicated than that, I’ll just have to leave it for now.

styte.css will not help you to change the text. CSS has nothing to do with the footer text….you could change it directly, or create your own functions.php and modify it per your needs in the child themeNicola BoothSpectatorFebruary 9, 2014 at 4:54 pmPost count: 21Been thanked: 0 times
What do you mean change it directly? I seem to be going round & round in circles here. Can I do this without a child theme??
I don’t know anything about functions.php so let’s just leave that option.
If there’s an easy way to change the text, could you please give me the steps needed to do so please?

sorry, but these forums are only for technical issues…those requirements are not covered in our forums….I already mentioned where to edit the text.
