Change your Copyright name in the footer

With this theme, you can change the “Copyright” name in the footer. By default, it’s setup to show this:

column footer

You can change only the “Your Name” part, and it cannot contain HTML code, otherwise the customizer will strip it out. If you need to change this copyright line to something completely different, you will need to use a child theme to make that kind of modification by copying the “footer-group.php” file over to your child theme and then make the changes there. This file is found in the theme’s /template-parts/ folder, which means you will need to create that same folder in your child theme as well to match what the parent theme has.
