Welcome to the forum, glamorouscreations. ^_^

 

If I understand you correct, you will need to locate something similar to this in your footer.php:

 

><div id="footer">
<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> © 2007 All rights reserved. <a href="http://www.example.net/wordpress-themes/">Name of theme</a> theme by <a href="http://www.example.net">Name of theme</a>. 
</div>

and remove the bit between the divs.

 

Before you try it, make sure to backup footer.php in case anything goes wrong.

 

As to adding these links to the sidebar, I would add those in a text widget if possible.

If you want to get really fancy, like if you intend this theme for public release and want to prevent the average user removing your credits, you can hook the wp_footer by adding to your theme's functions.php something like this:

 

>function my_credit_links() {
// your output here
echo '<a href="foo">Name of theme</a>';
}

add_action('wp_footer','my_credit_links');

Welcome to the forum glamorouscreations ^_^

 

What you posted looks like the index.php and not the footer.php

 

Normally the only code in the footer.php is what Thomas posted above.

 

So what is it you would like to remove from your pages?

i pated the actual footer.php info which is what it says , yeah i agree normal footers arent that legthly from all ive seen, but when u see my blog , at the bottom u see all the ugly links, the meta links and all the buttons to subscribe for stuff not needs, the only links i wanna keep are

the login admin link, the rss link , the wordpress link, , and once removed where that was all placed i wanna add just plain texting such as my copyright, and the graphics copyright link info and thats pretty much it.

Well you can start by editing your file to look like this.

 

>[color="#8B0000"]<div class="clear-this"></div>

</div> <!-- div#wrap-mid -->

<div id="footer">

<ul id="footer-links">

<?php if ( function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar(2) ) : else : ?>
<?php /* If this is the frontpage */ if ( is_home() || is_page() ) { ?>	
<li id="links">
<h2>Links</h2>
<ul>
<?php get_links('-1', '<li>', '</li>', '<br />', FALSE, 'name', FALSE, FALSE, -1, FALSE); ?>
</ul>
</li>

<li id="meta">
<h2>Meta</h2>
<ul>
<?php wp_register(); ?>
<li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li>
<?php wp_meta(); ?>
</ul>
</li>

<?php } ?>

<?php endif; /* end of dynamic sidebar */ ?>
</ul>

<div id="credits">
<a href="http://wordpress.org"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/wp-logo.jpg" alt="WordPress" title="Powered by WordPress" /></a>
<a href="http://www.glamorouscreations.com"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/cureless-logo.jpg" alt="Glamor" title="Fantasy WordPress Theme by Glamorous Creations" /></a>

<?php wp_footer(); ?>

</html>[/color]

To have links and meta removed, I believe you should remove this from the modified code, Bruce posted above:

><li id="links">
<h2>Links</h2>
<ul>
<?php get_links('-1', '<li>', '</li>', '<br />', FALSE, 'name', FALSE, FALSE, -1, FALSE); ?>
</ul>
</li>

<li id="meta">
<h2>Meta</h2>
<ul>
<?php wp_register(); ?>
<li><?php wp_loginout(); ?></li>
<?php wp_meta(); ?>
</ul>
</li>

 

As always, backup first if anything goes wrong. ^_^

You add the links just as you would in any HTML file.

 

><a href="http://your-link-here">Your text here</a>

 

Just insert it into the document where you want it to appear. Where the WordPress links were would be a good place. Just change the text and links to what you want it to say.

You are asking development quesitons. We use WordPress but are by no means experts at creating templates. In fact, I use a template that someone else created. I have not tried to create my own because it is just too time consuming.

 

I've offered all the help I can.
