You can modify the text, or even add html to it by navigating to "Appearance &gt; Theme Options &gt; Text in Footer"</p> <p>The example is a little confusing, even if nothing is placed in there, you still have the siteinfo div. Also there are plenty of overrides to do everything inside the functions.php.</p> <p>As a last resort, you can move the files you need to modify from the /library/extensions/ folder into your child theme and the theme will use those instead. I can't really see a scenario where you would have to do this. The reason not to do this is you will have to then manage that file and it won't auto update (provided there is new code added or an error that needs to be fixed, which is the whole benefit to child themes).</p> <p>You may want to explain a little more of what you are specifically needing. </p> givemecoffee on "Child Theme and Library/extensions" http://forums.themeshaper.com/topic/child-theme-and-libraryextensions#post-27253 Thu, 31 May 2012 13:47:16 +0000 givemecoffee 27253@http://forums.themeshaper.com/ <p>Thank you for your response. But I tired that. As an example, I needed to remove the default footer text 'Powered by, etc' from my footer, but I need the div ID #siteinfo. The only way I've seen to remove that default footer text with a function is to remove that entire #siteinfo area. So I had to edit the 'footer-extensions' file inside the Library/extensions folder.
