Hi,

I've tried to find info on how to change the copyright from the store name to my legal business name. Most of the info I've found so far is either outdated or does not relate to at least my theme (Supply). Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks!

Hey there!

My name is Alice, and I'm one of the Guru Team here at Shopify, thanks for reaching out to us on the forums! 

To change the copyright text within the footer section of the store on Shopify Themes, you just need to change the details in the Settings > General > Store Name.  

The coding of the footer section of the theme uses the information inputted into the Settings to display the copywritten name. 

If you have any issues with this, or if you need any help with anything else, you can let me know here, or the awesome Guru team are [here](https://help.shopify.com/questions) for you 24/7 here and are more than happy to help out! ?

Have an awesome day,

Hi Alice,

Thanks for the quick response. What I'm trying to figure out is if I can have the copyright list something different then my store name. Since the name that I do business under is different then the store name. It's mostly become more of a curiosity if it can be done then anything vital. I'm guessing I need to change something in the coding but I can't seem to find where (I would have thought it would be in the footer.liquid but it doesn't seem to be there). 

Thanks again!

Mark

You can indeed change the copyright in the footer.liquid code.

 

look for the following code Line 171  to 180

<div class="grid-item{% unless shop.enabled_payment_types == empty %} large--two-fifths{% endunless %}">
          <ul class="legal-links inline-list">
              <li>
                &copy; {{ 'now' | date: '%Y' }} {{ shop.name | link_to: routes.root_url }}
              </li>
              <li>
                {{ powered_by_link }}
              </li>
          </ul>
      </div>

You can change line 174 to whatever you want it to show.

&copy; {{ 'now' | date: '%Y' }} {{ 'text of what you want to display' | link_to: routes.root_url }}
              </li>

I know this is an old thread however I thought it would be good info to have since I was looking for it myself.

I am using the minimal theme.  I found that the footer is in the theme.liquid.  I just searched for Copyright.  It does not automatically update the Copyright year when the year changes, even though it is a variable.  You have to edit something and then click save.

 

        <!-- Begin copyright -->
        <div class="span12 tc copyright">
          {% assign current_year = 'now' | date: "%Y" %}
          <p>{{ 'layout.copyright.copyright_html' | t: year: current_year, name: shop.name }} | {{ powered_by_link }} {% if settings.designed_by %}{% endif %} </p>
          {% if shop.enabled_payment_types.size > 0 %}
          <ul class="credit-cards clearfix">
            {% for type in shop.enabled_payment_types %}
            <li><img width="50" src="{{ type | payment_type_img_url }}" /></li>
            {% endfor %}
          </ul> <!-- /.credit-cards -->
          {% endif %}
        </div>
        <!-- End copyright -->
