How to Customize Copyright All Rights Reserved Statement in Footer of WordPress

Customization of Copyright All rights reserved statement is necessary as per the user requirements and the company policy. Let us learn how to do it?

Before going for any customization on your WordPress site, it is advisable to make a backup copy 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 (e.g. in WordPress Twenty Sixteen Theme)  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.
