How to use the snippets?

NOTE: If the code snippets produce a different result on your site, it may be because the settings on your site are different or due to any customization already added to achieve a similar result. Please try removing your customization if any and feel free to change the values in the example codes to suit your design.

Copyrights info

The easiest way to change the footer link of your theme is to log into your WordPress backend and open the Enfold > Footer Tab. To remove the backlink add the below shortcode in the copyright field.


Html code or custom text can be added in the copyright field as shown below. If you like to display a button here a button shortcode can also be added in place of Html tag.

<a href=""> Copyright - MyService </a>

Remove default widgets

When you install the theme you will notice that the footer has default widgets. To remove these widgets simply drop a blank text widget or any widget of your choice in the footer widget area from Appearance > Widgets

Footer fonts

To add custom style to the footer widget title, fonts and links please use the CSS below.
