Since, you are complete beginner. I recommend you to upgrade to Pro version, where you have simple option to edit footer via Footer Editor box at “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Footer Editor”. Anyone can change from here, it’s very simple.
@gmclark77: You can just login to your WordPress dashboard and then go to “Appearance => Themes => Add New => Upload Theme”, then click on “Browse…” and upload the zip file that you have downloaded. Finally click on “Active”. I will also send you email so that if you have any issue while installation then I can help you out.
Thank you, that worked perfectly. Pro is installed but I have one problem remaining. After this then perhaps I can start spending more time building my site than I do in the forums trying to learn how to do it. Here’s the problem:
Everything I have already built looks the same (as I would expect) EXCEPT my front page now has a big headline that says “FEATURED” and below it is a box reserved for inserting a picture, and when I click it, it takes me to a comment page.
My site is intended to be static pages promoting a book. It is not a blog. I have searched high and low for how to get rid of FEATURED and the photo box/link with no luck. Please tell me how to do that.
Apologies, I finally bumped into the solution — the theme came with a default “Welcome to My World” post. Once I found where you manage posts, I deleted it, and “FEATURED” seems to have disappeared too.
But of course there’s another problem: I expected the Pro theme to place the little pencil icon (for “edit this area”) in the footnote about copyright that I need to change. It did not, so I still can’t seem to modify the footer.
And once again, I found the solution to the footer. I suppose I’ll consider myself an intermediate WordPress user when it takes me less than 45 minutes to find what I’m looking for. Thank you again for your help.
Sorry, supporting without URL is little confusing. So, I have to just imagine what you are doing and not.
1. Modify footnote about copyright: You need to go to “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Footer Editor Options”
2. To Disable Featured Content, go to “Appearance => Customize => Featured Content” and select “Disabled” in Enable on option.
