How to Change the ClassiPress Footer Links

In this Classipress tutorial video, I’ll show you how to update or change the Classipress footer links.  More specifically, the video will demonstrate how to change the link found on the right side of the footer that says, “Classified Ads Software | Powered by WordPress“.  The “Classified Ads Software | Powered by WordPress” links will be there by default when you install the ClassiPress theme so you will definitely want to update them before launching the site.

ClassiPress Footer Links

In my opinion, it is best to update the links so that they go to specific pages within your website.  I like to update the Classipress footer links so that they go to my Privacy Policy and Contact Us pages. Obviously it is totally based on your preferences as to how you update the ClassiPress footer links, I’m just going to show you where to do it in the WordPress admin.

Here’s how to change the ClassiPress footer links…


To recap… in the WordPress admin go to Appearance > Editor > under Templates scroll down and find “theme-footer.php” and click to open that file > theme-footer.php is the file that you need to update > scroll down and find “Classified Ads Software” and change the text and link to go to the page(s) that you’d like within your site.  Again, I prefer to update the ClassiPress footer links so that they go to my Contact and Privacy pages.  Do not make the common mistake of clicking on the Footer (footer.php) file.  The file that you need to edit is “theme-footer.php” and you’ll find it by scrolling down the page.

The highlighted section in the image below is and example of how I updated the theme-footer.php  file for…

  1. Adam thanks for your great video tutorial, it was really helpful to all of us. Adam i just purchase classipress theme but before i set up everything i want to know how can we remove Ad categories from home page and just show the listed items as on demo…? Please help with this one. Because ad categories will be shown at menu bar, so no point of showing it again below the features Ads instead i would like show the listed one only. Please help I am waiting for your response.

    • I’m glad to hear that the video tutorials have been helpful. Here’s how to just show the listed items… In your WordPress admin go to ClassiPress > click on the “General” tab > in the “Home Page Layout” drop-down select “Standard Style” > Save changes and you should be good to go… Thanks for the positive feedback, best of luck with your site and let me know if you need any help.

    • Hi Zeineb,

      I'd be happy to help change the footer links for your ClassiPress theme site. If you can create a WordPress admin login account and send it to me via the contact form on I will help you change them.
