How to Customize Copyright All Rights Reserved Footer in WordPress Twenty Sixteen Theme

Before going for any customization on your WordPress site, it is always advisable to make a backup of your theme or even possibly the whole site itself. It is also recommended to carry out all such customization jobs on the Child Theme only. It helps you to quickly revert back to the originals without much pain and with safety. If you don’t know about child theme, or don’t know how to create it, you are advised to go through our article, how to create a child theme for your site.

Now let us presume that when you are looking at the footer of your site you find the following description.

Your Website Title Name / Proudly powered by WordPress

After customization, you may want that your footer should look something like following.

Website Title Name / Proudly powered by WordPress
Copyright © 2015-16 : YourSiteName | All rights Reserved.

To do this please go to footer.php of your child theme by following cPanel > File Manager > public_html > wp-content > themes > Child Theme.

Alternatively, you can also use the site editor or the editing plugins to access the  footer.php file.
