Continuing the discussion from Remove " Theme by Colorlib Powered by WordPress" from Footer:
Referring to the reply from mikesupport17: You recommended solving the problem within the child theme, but you didn’t explain how to do that.
I tried around with different methods, but none worked properly.
Where do I have to place which code in the child theme? I tried to create a new directory “inc” and place the file “extra.php” there. What code must the file contain? The complete file with commented out lines does not work. The extra.php in the root path of the child theme does not work either.
Commenting out these lines in the parent theme does work, but leads to errors if, for example, a plugin like GTranslate is used. The language flags of the plugin in the right footer corner disappeared after commenting out the lines. Same effect with other plugins (e.g. Skype Live Chat) when they have graphic characters in the footer area of the frontend.
It seems to be tricky and does not work reliably to comment out the lines. Also, I have not managed to use a child theme.
Thanks for the help.
