How to Modify the Footer Credit Section in Genesis Child Themes

The code below should be placed in the child theme’s functions.php file anywhere after the following line:

require_once(TEMPLATEPATH.’/lib/init.php’);


// Modify credits section
add_filter('genesis_footer_creds_text', 'custom_footer_creds_text');
function custom_footer_creds_text($creds) {
$creds = '[footer_copyright]' • get_bloginfo('name') . ' • Built on the [footer_genesis_link]';
return $creds;}

You’ll be changing the $creds = line, keeping the single quotes and changing everything inbetween to your liking.

Happy blogging!
