I am applying a new theme to my site - the "Simple" Theme. I have edited the code to horizontally align the menu buttons in the center of the footer.

1) I would like to remove the lines above and below the menu buttons

2) Center align the copyright 2020, Allure retail

3) Add the social media links 

 

Is there a way to simply copy the code from my old theme and apply it to my new theme?

If so, which lines would I copy / where would I paste them to in the new theme?

You'll need to figure out what css is providing the layout for the old footer (css files are held in assets, usually theme.css.liquid) and make sure they are copied/moved over to the new theme.

 

Be careful with anything classes etc using the same name that may conflict.

I have the theme.scss.liquid open for my old theme but not sure which lines would state "what css is providing the layout for the old footer"

Easiest way to do this would be to use chrome or firefox and inspect the elements you want to carry over.

 

Knowledge of HTML and CSS will be required to do this properly.

I'm looking for a simple "copy/paste" method - or specific codes to add/remove to achieve the 3 points I originally posted.

I am not familiar with HTML or CSS. But have changed/edited codes many times with instruction.

Would there be a standard code to center the copyright line?
And a code to add the social media icons?
