  1. I'm new to WordPress, and I have just designed a web site for a customer using my child theme of Thematic, and I'd like to put my site link right after the Thematic link as the website designer credit, and can't seem to figure out how to do it.

    Here is what I want in the footer:

    © [the-year] Robinsons' Road Refinishing Ramps and Pothole Patch Inc. Powered by [wp-link]. Built on the [theme-link]. Web design: (want my link to go here)

    Here is how I have modified the footer-extensions.php file:

    function thematic_footertext($thm_footertext) {
        $thm_footertext = apply_filters('thematic_footertext', $thm_footertext);
        $thm_footertext = '<a href="http://www.robmackdesign.com" target="_blank">RobMackDesign.com</a>' ;
    
        return $thm_footertext;
    } // end thematic_footertext

    With the above footer-extension.php in place, all I am getting is my link and nothing else.

    I would appreciate ant help on this.

    Many thanks,

    --Rob

  3. Hi Rob,

    It is not recommended that you alter any of Thematic's files. I would recommend that you create a child theme and make all edits to the child theme only. Aside from that most basic beginning to creating sites with Thematic, I will mention that you can easily add text and links to the footer from within the WordPressAdmin>Appearance>ThematicOptions look for the section labeled "text in footer"
