Reply To: footer copyright text size and layout

So, what you’re basically asking with all that is you want the text below your copyright information to be a different size and to be aligned left instead of centered, right?

All collapsible widget areas have the content centered, as they’re intended for things like banner ads. This is where your text in the screenshot is located. You can change this with CSS customization.

For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.

So using this information, try to find the selector that surrounds the area you want to customize and change the text-align CSS property to “left” instead of “center” by putting the Custom CSS into your site. And if you want the text larger or smaller, you need to obviously then use the font-size property, as well, with your CSS.
