WordPress ClassiPress Theme Customize Footer Area tutorial shows you how to customize and edit the footer area in your site and more.

Last Updated: October 12, 2018

Latest News: I have updated the information for version 4.1.0.

In this tutorial you will learn how to manage the footer area of your site including the copyright notice. ClassiPress has four different widget areas you can play with. Each widget area allows you to add many different widgets. It is up to you to choose how many widgets you want to add in each footer area block.

Note: When editing themes it is always best to use a child theme for all your customization.

ClassiPress WordPress Theme Customize Footer Area

Step 1 ) The following image shows you the Footer Area in the site. The theme allows you to add four widgets to the footer area. You can add any type of widget as long as the data fits well and functions correctly in the footer. For this example I have added the Ad Categories widget to the footer area for you to see how it looks.

In the following image you can also see the copyright notice and ClassiPress Theme – Powered by WordPress. This is okay but you might want to edit this information and add your own text.


Step 2 ) Click on Appearance -> Customize as illustrated in the following image to start customizing the footer area.


Step 3 ) Click on Site Identity as illustrated in the following image. This will display the footer options you can enable, change or remove.



Step 4 ) The following image allows you to display and change the Logo in your site. Click on Remove button to remove the logo or click on the Change logo button to add a different logo image. The following image shows you the default classipress theme logo image displayed.


Step 4 ) The following image allows you to control what is displayed in the footer area of your site.

Display Footer Area Options

  • Site Title
  • Tagline
  • Display Site Title
  • Display Tagline
  • Show time/timezone in the footer
  • Footer Copyright


Site Icon

Step 5 ) The following image allows you to set up the Site Icon. Click on Remove button to remove the site icon or click on the Change logo button to add a different site icon image.


Step 6 ) The above step works well, however in most cases you might not like editing the parent core files. The best solution, is to use a child theme. You might like to read the following documentation How To Set Up ClassiPress Child Theme. This method allows you to edit the above using the child theme and not loose your customized editing when you update the theme in the future.


That is how simple it is to customize the footer area in your site.

  1. Man it’s 2018 why are you still telling people to hack core files … it’s not futureproof in the slightest – please recommend to use a child theme instead

    • Hi, yes you are correct. Thank you for reminding me. I was eventually going to include more information which also included using a child theme. Unfortunately I lost track and never got around it. I am always busy. I will be adding some documentation about using a child theme in a future update.

      Thank you for your comment.
