Part 6. Customize Social Media and Footer

This part of the tutorial explains how you can customize the social media and the information, displayed in the footer on your Plone 4.2 website with Wink theme installed.

Wink Responsive Plone theme comes with 6 social media icons for sharing information and communicating via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, RSS feed and Skype. It's implemented in the footer area. Overall, Wink theme footer can be subdivided into three parts: Social media(1), standard Plone footer(2) and Plone colophon with some theme credits (3).

All parts can be customized. To change Social media part(1) and standard Plone footer(2), go to Zope Management Interface -> portal_view_customizations -> plone.footer. Press Customize to enable editing of the current footer template and change the text.

Do not forget to save the changes when you finish.

To hide theme credits (3) and Plone colophon  you will need to add a special class to your ploneCustom.css.

#portal-colophon {
display: none;
