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?

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 );
}

Actually I found the link for Cyberchimps (your theme creators)

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?
