Moving copyright info into the footer

    I am trying to move my copyright statement into the footer of my blog and am a bit stumped. Any help would be so appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is


    See what you think of this.

    #text-364843153 .textwidget {
    border: none;
    #text-364843153 {
    position: absolute;
    bottom: -95px;
    left: 0;
    width: 270px;


    Thank you so much thesacredpath, worked like a charm. : )
    There is just one more tweak I’d love to make to it – Can I move the smiley and add it to the end of my text line, then centre it all in the space?

    Cheers, Alisa


    The smiley is in a different element (div) so position it would be tricky and may not work well for all browsers.

    Add text-align: center as below to center the text.

    #text-364843153 .textwidget {
    border: medium none;
    text-align: center;

    Then add this to make the smiley disappear.

    img#wpstats {
    display: none;


    All done and looking brilliant. Thank you again!
    All the best, Alisa


    You are welcome. I’ve been enjoying your site. Very nice work.



    Thanks! : )



    First off, these forums are amazing and have been so helpful :)

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to add copyright 2012 to bottom of my site as well and can’t figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

    As well does anyone know if you have to upgrade to have an email address with your blog in it, meaning (email redacted)? Once I finish a few more details I will be buying a domain through wordpress.

    Thanks and I look forward to your answers.



    You can use the Custom Design upgrade to add some content to the footer using CSS. You would add this code to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS page. There is a preview button before you buy if you’d like to try it out.

    Here is an example:

    #site-info:before {
    content: "Copyright ";
    #site-info:after {
    content: " All rights reserved.";

    It’s better to have it in the sidebar (WordPress recommends this) so that it is always viewable.

    I previously had mine in the footer and nobody could see it and therefore my content got stolen.
