    Updating the Footer Link to this post

    Hi All,
    I'm taking over administration of a site built on SS 2.3. The previous developer built a custom theme built on blackcandy. I need to update the contents of the footer, but I can't find it for the life of me. I've searched through all of the files for the site, and I've also spent time looking through the site content within the admin pages. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Chris

    There are 3 places where the footer can be...

    1) An included file that is directly somewhere under "mysite/" or somewhere under "themes/"
    2) Directly in the templates, make sure you are looking at the right "template(s)"
    3) Directly in the content of each page or in one specific page of the site such as "Footer" and then the template opens that page and prints the content to the template.

    Those are pretty the only ways to do this! Apart from that, we'd need to have access to the site to tell you more...

    Thanks CrazyCoders, I found it in the mysite folder. Wouldn't have gotten there without your help.

    Thanks,

    You have to understand some key principles about theming in SS and here they are, please correct me if i'm wrong (others)

    MySite is the folder that should contain all your templates, code files, and non-thematic specific files. You technically should never have SS templates files in themes because it means that each theme would need to reproduce your page to work...

    The theme folder is for theme specific information such as CSS, images and theme specific javascript code...

    Did that make sense?
