How to add a custom line to Footer

I have created a child theme for DEFAULT, and would like to add an extra line just after the Time Zone line in the Footer.

It would be something like: Free icons by: ...where there would be a link on their name.


I have found the spFoot.php file in my child theme, and sort of understand how it is working.  I started by duping as follows:



sp_OnlineStats() - which I modified to show my text and links. However now I realize this a specialized function as in addition to my stuff, I get the online stats.


Is there a generic function to add a custom line to the footer? (or anywhere for that matter).

What you can do is echo it out.

Wherever you want to put it use

echo '';

Put your text or html between the two ' single quotes.


echo 'Free icons by:';
