Option 1 – Disable Through Theme Settings

In fact, some themes have a built-in theme editing menu, and this section has many customization options, including footer editing. Thus, you can get the design you want without any difficulty. However, this feature is usually found in premium themes; free themes are more restrictive.

If you are using a free theme, the fastest and most practical way to edit WordPress site footer is to use the theme customizer. Theme customizer is available with every WP theme, but not all of them support footer editing.

4.After logging in to the customizer, find the “Footer” section:

5.We use the OceanWP theme as an example, so the options here may look different depending on the theme you choose. For example, in your theme, the footer editing part may be inside the menus tab. You can find the footer part by examining the tabs one by one.

6.Here you can set the information you want in the footer and the style settings in general. The theme customizer also allows you to preview changes on different screen sizes in real time.

WordPress footer replacement is done from the customizer section of many themes, but if you don’t have access to it in the theme you’re using, you can use the components section.
This section, called widgets or widgets, offers easy layout and customization options for WordPress sites.
