I figured out a way to change the credits in the footer while still maintaining those great looking graphics. It’s pretty simple.
In the admin panel go to Edit Themes/Editor then select the Stylesheet file. Scroll down in the code to the footer information…I think it is the 3rd and forth annotations, one is footer left and the other footer right. In the padding line of each there are three numbers. Change the first number 10px to 30px in each of the left and right footer annotations, then update the file.
This moves the text from the middle of the graphics verbage to below them. So you can still give credit where credit is due and have your graphics too.
You can see the change in my footer. Hope this helps! 😉
