I recently launched a new WordPress site and implemented the theme "twentyeleven." I also created a twentyeleven-child folder and activated it.
I would like to replace the words "Proudly powered by WordPress" at the bottom of the page with a custom footer. I found the appropriate file and can easily make the replacement. However, there's some code that I don't understand.
Suppose my footer consisted of nothing more than image - footer.png. Should I just delete everything inside div id="site-generator" and replace it with footer.png. Or is there some code inside the div that I should keep for some reason?
I assume I should keep the line get_sidebar( 'footer' ); though I haven't really taken a look at the footer sidebar yet.
<footer id="colophon" role="contentinfo"> <?php /* * A sidebar in the footer? Yep. You can customize * your footer with three columns of widgets. */ if ( ! is_404() ) get_sidebar( 'footer' ); ?> <div id="site-generator"> <?php do_action( 'twentyeleven_credits' ); ?> <a href="<?php echo esc_url( __( 'https://wordpress.org/', 'twentyeleven' ) ); ?>" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Semantic Personal Publishing Platform', 'twentyeleven' ); ?>"><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by %s', 'twentyeleven' ), 'WordPress' ); ?></a> </div> </footer><!-- #colophon -->
