    Hi,

    Is there someway to move the wordpress.com site credit? On our site http://blogs.archives.qld.gov.au/ is sticks out all by itself and is a great waste of space. Could we perhaps put it in a single line (without all the white space) above the left and right footers?
    Thanks,
    David

    The blog I need help with is blogs.archives.qld.gov.au.

    It looks like you have removed the footer credits completely – which puts you in violation of the Terms of Service and your blog is subject to suspension,

    A small amount of changes is allowed if you have the CSS / Custom design upgrade but the footer credits must be present – even the VIP program which starts at $30,000 / year are required to have the footer credits

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I removed the credits temporarily to see what I could do with them. I know all about the credits being part of the terms of service. And the site will not violate the terms. At this stage I’m experimenting until someone can give me some guidance on moving the credits.

    You need to post in the CSS forum section to get help with CSS – note also that having the credits missing is not a good idea no matter what your motivation

    Best to put them back before someone flags your blog

    I will flag this for transfer to the CSS forum for you

    Putting the credits above the widgets is possible, but won’t it create an even more unbalanced look with even more white space? I would suggest something like this instead (widgets widened, text widget placed left, credits turned to two lines and placed bottom left):

    #footer {
        padding-bottom: 20px;
        position: relative;
    }
    #site-info {
        bottom: 45px;
        left: 0;
        padding-right: 0;
        position: absolute;
        width: 220px;
    }
    #site-info .sep {
        visibility: hidden;
    }
    #footer-right {
        float: left;
        width: 310px;
    }
    #footer-left {
        width: 420px;
    }

    Try it and see if you like it.

    And as auxclass noted, in the future make sure you post CSS questions in the CSS forum, not the Themes forum.

    Thanks so much for your help. I’ve played around with this, trying to fit in a few branding elements. I think it would work if I could put the pages links in two columns. So, across the bottom you’d have the wordpress credit, a list of three or so pages, then another three, then the logo. I’ve searched the web on this but can’t find anything. Would you happen to know?
    Thanks,
    David

    You’re welcome.
    Agree, four columns of footer items would probably be the best solution.
    Turning the Pages widget into two columns is possible but it’s a bit tricky: it’s easier if it’s two separate widgets. So first create two custom menus in Appearance > Menus (adding some of your pages to the one menu and the rest in the other one), then remove the Pages widget and add two Custom Menu widgets.
