    Hello,

    I was wondering if there’s a way to put a copyright symbol © beside the site name on the footer of the page; something to look like this:

    © Sonilda Bardhoshi Mills
    Blog at WordPress.com. | The Connect Theme.

    … without effecting the title of the page or anything else?
    I’m very new with coding :) and I appreciate your support and help a lot.

    Thanks,
    Soni.

    The blog I need help with is sonildabardhoshimills.com.

    Hi Soni,

    You could try something like this:

    .footer-content::before {
        color: #fff;
        content: "© Sonilda Bardhoshi Mills";
        font-size: 0.8em;
        font-weight: 600;
    }
    
    .footer p {
        display: none;
    }
    
    .footer p + p {
        display: block;
    }

    The first block gets your copyright info as you want it, the second block hides the duplicate line beneath it, and the third block ensures that the required theme and WordPress info continues to display (otherwise it’s hidden by the second block, breaking WordPress’ ToS).

    Thanks!

    Thanks a lot.
    I only wanted the copyright symbol to protect my artwork.
    I definitely want to keep the other lines about wordpress and the theme . Is that still against the wordpress ToS , attribution section?

    What about adding two more lines on the footer under the
    Blog at WordPress.com. | The Connect Theme. ?
    I want to put links for terms of use and privacy policy.

    I’m looking for something like this:
    Blog at WordPress.com. | The Connect Theme.
    Terms of Use | Privacy Policy

    Would that be okay and within the ToS for wordpress? I read the attribution part carefully, but I just want to make sure there’s no misunderstanding on my side.

    Hello,

    By using the code provided above you’ll get the copyright symbol and still keep the WordPress attribution links.

    You can add content before or after the current lines with the same code provided above, you’d just need to change the ‘before’ to ‘after’ if you wanted them after. For example,

    .footer-content:before {
        content: "© Sonilda Bardhoshi Mills";
    }

    You can replace what’s between the ” ” with whatever content you wanted to display. It’s not possible to turn these into links however, it can only display content.

    Thank you,

    Rebecca
