I'm tasked with updating the footer information... [snip]

EDIT: My original request was for help locating hard-coded content that is not accessible through the CMS user interface on a site built by a developer who is no longer in touch. I found the content by downloading site files through FTP and doing a text search for unique words in that content.

For anyone else trying to edit content that they can't locate through the CMS, on FTP look in "/mySite/themes/myTheme/templates/Includes" and check in those ".ss" files.
