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!

At first let’s navigate to International -> Translations in Improve section of admin menu.

After a new field appeared, which is called Select your theme please choose 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 required language. For example English.

  2. 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
