edit remove items on my footer

I would like to modify and make changes to the footer on my wordpress pages.  Some items I would like to remove.  My site is located here

Any ideas how I can simply do this?

In the control panel, go to appearance, editor
In the top right select the theme to edit (CyberChimps)
Select footer (footer.php) (also Theme Function (functions.php) - see notes below
You can see some code in the footer

Copy ALL the code before you make changes in case you need to put it back - put it into notepad
Try out the changes - I can't be specific, you will need some coding and it can change from template to template and version to version
If the changes fail then put the code back from notepad

You can try the same changes in Theme Functions (functions.php) as well as footer.php.
But do the same 'backup' copy of the code in notepad in case you make errors

Do a search for 'footer' in both files and see if you can work out where the footer info goes and how you can change it.

Good luck

The best would be to convert the theme to a child theme and remove the footer (or change it) using the functions.php in the child them (this means that updates to the main theme will not affect your child theme)
Exampled below (using attitude_footer - modify to suit your theme):


<?php

// Remove old copyright text
add_action( 'init' , 'mh_remove_copy' , 15 );
function mh_remove_copy() {
        remove_action( 'attitude_footer', 'attitude_footer_info', 30 );
}

// Add my own copyright text
add_action( 'attitude_footer' , 'mh_footer_info' , 30 );
function mh_footer_info() {
   $output = '<div class="copyright">'.'Copyright © [the-year] [site-link] Powered by: Experts-Exchange responses! '.'</div><!-- .copyright -->';
   echo do_shortcode( $output );
}

I am pretty novice here, so can I make these changes from the WordPress admin site or do I need to modify a page via FTP?
