# theme customizer issue

I am trying to employ the theme customizer and I am seeing an issue. For some reason, the text that is stored in the customizer will not show in the footer but when I click on the customizer, it does show on the preview. I have found that if I delete the text and remake it, it usually works. I should not have to do that though. Do you see an issue in my code?

 add_action('customize_register', 'add_footer_copyright');

function add_footer_copyright($wp_customize) {$wp_customize->add_setting( 'footer_copyright', array(
'default' => 'Copyright &copy; 201 - Designed By: <a href="http://example.com"  title="Designed & Developed By">Designer Name</a>',
'capability' => 'edit_theme_options',

) );

$wp_customize->add_control( 'footer_copyright', array( 'label' => 'Footer Copyright', 'section' => 'title_tagline', 'type' => 'text' ) ); }  ## 1 Answer I have rewrote the code you given with minor changes. Please try this:  add_action('customize_register', 'add_footer_copyright'); function add_footer_copyright($wp_customize) {

$wp_customize->add_setting( 'footer_copyright', array( 'default' => 'Copyright © 201 - Designed By: Designer Name', 'transport' => 'postMessage', 'capability' => 'edit_theme_options', ) );$wp_customize->add_control( 'footer_copyright', array(
