Footer editing


I want to change the ‘Theme by Colorlib Powered by WordPress’ in the footer.

I am using Activello Version: 1.3.7

How can i find the code to be able to change it?
By the way: Costomizer => Footer => Copyright-Text doesn’t change anything!!
I have »esc_html Theme von Colorlib Powered by WordPress« on my page!!
Thank you.

Hi there,
Thanks for reaching out.
In reference to your question here, please navigate to your theme files under the activello>inc>extras.php and around line 176, please have that String altered.
I hope this helps.
Kind Regards,

Many thanks, found it!
But I can’t see the changes on my website. How is that possible? I deleted the cache as well, but no changes. Crazy.

Hello there,

I hope you are doing well today.

You would see the changes immediately but you can remove the footer entirely or use PHP to change it.

Best Regards,

I just changes words and links within the php code:

function activello_footer_info() {
global $activello_footer_info;
printf( esc_html__( ‘Theme by %1$s Sicherheit in Paderborn von %2$s’, ‘activello’ ) , ‘Colorlib’, ‘Name of the website’ );

Where is the problem and for what is “esc_html” ? It’s also shown in the footer of the website.


Hey there

in order to remove footer copyright text, you have to buy a license: Licence - Colorlib
without a license, you don’t have rights to remove text from the footer :wink:
esc_html is a php function for escaping not allowed characters in the string, you can do research for more information
