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 $options = get_option( ‘startup_options’ ); ?>
<footer id=”footer” role=”contentinfo”>
<?php echo sprintf( __( ‘%1$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‘ ); ?>
<?php wp_footer(); ?>

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.December 13, 2014 at 9:06 PM #1987
I’m comfortable with it:) Just nervousDecember 13, 2014 at 9:11 PM #1989
<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$s.', 'startup' ), '<a href="https://startupwp.com/">Startup WordPress Theme</a>', '<a href="http://wordpress.org/">WordPress</a>' ); ?> </div>
<div id="copyright"> <?php echo sprintf( __( '%1$s %2$s %3$s. All Rights Reserved.', 'startup' ), '©', date( 'Y' ), esc_html( get_bloginfo( 'name' ) ) ); ?> </div>
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:December 13, 2014 at 9:32 PM #2000
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.December 13, 2014 at 9:55 PM #2001December 13, 2014 at 10:19 PM #2002
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:)December 13, 2014 at 10:33 PM #2003
Where is my themes directory please?December 14, 2014 at 6:01 PM #2004
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. :)
