    I’m trying to add a footer for copyright info to my site, but having difficulty with the footer widget. I’m using the Paperpunch template from the Theme Foundry. Any insights?

    The blog I need help with is bdbrainwreck.com.

    You can add a text widget (doesn’t necessarily have to be in your footer) and add copyright info to it, so that is an option. One advantage is there is no CSS required.

    Another alternative would be to use CSS to add some text onto the end of the existing footer.

    I draw this example from another response, so you will have to give it a try and report back if it doesn’t work (I’m sorry I can’t tell you for sure either way – I’m still learning myself).

    To add extra copyright info:

    #copyright div:after {
    	content: " Copyright XYZ. All rights reserved.";
    }

    Good luck!

    You need to use a slightly different selector list for the Paperpunch theme. Try adding the following to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor and click the Preview button:

    #copyright p:before {
    	content: "Copyright XYZ. All rights reserved. ";
    }

    Note that you can use “:before” or “:after”.

    These were a great help when I stuck with the original template of Paperpunch by Foundry. I’ve switched sites based on feedback from multiple sources and I’m stuck again. New template is Greyzed by Forge Web. New suggestions on adding the ‘copyright language’ at the bottom of the pages? These great suggestions before aren’t working on this particular template.
