    I have two questions in one::

    I would like to add a footer to my blog and I am currently using the Vigilance theme with CSS upgrade. Am I able to do this? and if so how?

    Also, I want to change the wording for “older posts” and “newer posts” is this possible? Similarly, I want to change the wording in the search box.

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is miafrances.com.

    You cannot add functionality to a blog with the CSS upgrade, so no, no footer on themes that don’t have one.

    Yes, the words can be changed. I don’t know how, but they can be.

    You have a few options here. If you just want to add text to the end of the footer in the Vigilance theme, you can do something like this:

    #footer:after {
    content: " Text goes here."
    }

    Another option would be to add a widget to the sidebar, then look in the page source to determine it’s unique class or ID identifier, and use that identifier to absolutely position the widget somewhere at the bottom of the blog. Here is an example to show what I mean:

    #wrapper {
    position: relative;
    }
    
    #search-3 {
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 0;
    left: 0;
    }

    You would need to add a widget and change “#search-3” to the identifier for the new widget you add. Then you would need to adjust the spacing accordingly.

    I want to change the wording for “older posts” and “newer posts” is this possible?

    To change the wording for “older entries” and “newer entries” in the Vigilance theme, you can try the following:

    .navigation .alignleft a {
    visibility: hidden;
    display: block;
    }
    
    .navigation .alignleft a:before {
    visibility: visible;
    float: left;
    content: "New text for older entries";
    }
    
    .navigation .alignright a {
    visibility: hidden;
    display: block;
    }
    
    .navigation .alignright a:before {
    visibility: visible;
    float: right;
    content: "New text for newer entries";
    }

    Make sure to test if the links still work. I tried them and they worked in my test.

    The text inside the search box that says “type and press enter” is set with Javascript and so you cannot change it using the Custom Design upgrade.
