    Hello again. I wanted to delete just the part of our footer that
    reads “built with StartupWP theme and WordPress. I went to the footer
    catagory and I so see kinda what to delete but I’m afraid I might make
    a mess of it. Not sure where to start the delete and end it. Here is
    what it reads. I do though want to keep the year, our name and all
    rights reserved. Thank you again. You guys or gals are wonderful!~

    <?php $options = get_option( ‘startup_options’ ); ?>
    <div class=”clear”></div>
    </div>
    <footer id=”footer” role=”contentinfo”>
    <div id=”copyright”>
    <?php echo sprintf( __( ‘%1$s %2$s %3$s. All Rights Reserved.’,
    ‘startup’ ), ‘©’, date( ‘Y’ ), esc_html( get_bloginfo( ‘name’ ) )
    ); echo sprintf( __( ‘ Built with %1$s and %2$s.’, ‘startup’ ), ‘<a
    href=”https://startupwp.com/”>Startup WordPress Theme‘, ‘<a
    href=”http://wordpress.org/”>WordPress‘ ); ?>
    </div>
    </footer>
    </div>

    If you’re not comfortable digging into the code, you can upgrade to Pro and simply turn it off in the theme options.

    But, if you’d like to give it a shot with customizing the code we can.

    Update:

    <div id="copyright">
    <?php echo sprintf( __( '%1$s %2$s %3$s. All Rights Reserved.', 'startup' ), '&copy;', date( 'Y' ), esc_html( get_bloginfo( 'name' ) ) ); echo sprintf( __( ' Built with %1$s and %2$s.', 'startup' ), '<a href="https://startupwp.com/">Startup WordPress Theme</a>', '<a href="http://wordpress.org/">WordPress</a>' ); ?>
    </div>

    to:

    <div id="copyright">
    <?php echo sprintf( __( '%1$s %2$s %3$s. All Rights Reserved.', 'startup' ), '&copy;', date( 'Y' ), esc_html( get_bloginfo( 'name' ) ) ); ?>
    </div>

    We’ve removed:

    echo sprintf( __( ' Built with %1$s and %2$s.', 'startup' ), '<a href="https://startupwp.com/">Startup WordPress Theme</a>', '<a href="http://wordpress.org/">WordPress</a>' );

    You’ll probably want to setup a child theme to make this customization:

    thank you for all of your help. Sorry for all of the questions. I don’t know how to set up child theme. I will have to find someone I know to help. Again, thank you.

    No problem, ask away! That’s what we’re here for. :)

    You can download a pre-made child theme example here:

    And learn more about child theming in general here:

    um, well okay. Gee, thank you. I did download the zip and read the wordpress general article. I don’t know where to set up this part

    “Create a directory in your themes directory to hold the child theme.”

    How do I hold the zip drive child theme if I don’t have a download of the main theme? I totally understand if you need to stop with me:)

    Your confusion makes sense, this is because WordPress is so easy and automated out-of-the-box it’s a whole new way of looking at it when getting into customization.

    You clearly installed Startup automatically directly from the theme search under Appearance > Themes. There’s also a semi-manual and manual way to accomplish the same thing, but with more control.

    Semi-manual you could go directly to https://wordpress.org/themes/startup and download the zip, then upload and install under Appearance > Themes.

    The fully manual way (which is what we need to look at for child theming) is download the zip from https://wordpress.org/themes/startup, then unzip it so we just have the /startup/ folder and then manually upload it to /wp-content/themes/ via FTP (File Transfer Protocol).

    What host are you on? Different hosts have different requirements/instructions for connecting via FTP and they should be able to guide you on this.

    What we need to do now is get the /startup-child/ theme folder with your alterations uploaded to the /themes/ folder and then activated under Appearance > Themes.

    I realize this might feel a bit overwhelming at the moment, but you’ll be zipping along in no time. :)
