How To Change Footer Copyright Message in Prestashop 1.7

During the configuration process of Prestashop store, you might face some problems with footer copyright message editing. By default it looks like “© 2016 – Ecommerce software by PrestaShop™” and it has a link that transfers you to www.prestashop.com website. So to edit it and change the link you have to follow these simple steps. It doesn’t require some special development skills so anyone of you can easily perform it. Let’s go!

Navigate to International -> Translations in Improve section of the admin menu.

Select the following positions in Modify Translations section.

Type of translations: choose Theme Translations in the list.

After a new field appeared, which is called Select your theme please choose a necessary theme in the drop down, in which you want to implement all modifications. In our case, it’s Classic theme.

And in the end, you need to choose a required language. For example, English.

Ok, that’s done. But to modify Prestashop title and URL you have to enter a directory where Prestashop is installed. Let’s use any File Manager to get an access to the required files.

And then follow this path:

  1. Fantastic, Been looking everywhere on how to do this. works like a charm :D

    Thanks

    Mat

  2. Hi, Jon!
    Yes, there is unfortunately such a problem. Let’s hope it will get fixed soon.

  3. Did this in 1.7.4.3 and no problem, personalized all copyright info. But in the new 1.7.5.0 that I just upgraded to, the modify button does nothing…e explore, mozilla, and chrome, didn’t do anything in either of those browsers. I know I could roll back. We’ll see if they get it fixed.

  4. Hi, Max!

    Frankly speaking, I haven’t tested this method on Presta 1.7.3 yet.
    In case you do it, please, share your experience!

    Kindly,
    Vladislav

  5. Thank you for the tips, it work really well.

    I was wondering what would happen in case of update of prestashop ?
    lets say 1.7.3, modifying the .tpl will cause trouble when making the new update ?

    Thank you for your auto they are well done and easy to understand for beginners !

  6. Hi, there are several points you should check:
    1) Make sure you’re applying the changes in the correct template (whether it’s classic or custom one)
    2) Try to recompile your smarty templates
    3) Try to clear Prestashop cache

  7. hi, TQ for the details and information.
    i just tried the steps above, but it is not working for now, is there any new way ?

    im E-Commerce student and learn about PHP language,
    ive followed your step more than 10 times, and refresh the browser, but it still there.
    Thank you for your replies :)
