I’m not sure which version you’re using, but with the latest from the WP repository, you can override/change the footer info within your child theme’s functions.php with the following:

function my_footer() {
 $footer_extras = skeleton_options('footer_extras');
 $extras  = '<div id="credits">';
 $extras .= $footer_extras;
 $extras .= '<div class="themeauthor">My Text</div>';
 $extras .= "</div>";
 return $extras;
}
add_filter('skeleton_author_credits','my_footer');

Thanks.

Still can’t get this sorted out. My Wordpress version is 3.9.1

Was able to get copyright/ legal line by editing Appearance>Customize>Extras.

(I couldn’t change that by editing child theme’s functions.php (as you suggested above)

Please tell me how to simply remove the text: Wordpress Theme by Simple Themes.


Thanks in advance.

It looks like you’re using an older version of the theme, and you also don’t have the child theme enabled. This limits the ability to customize the theme. In your case, you’ll need to modify functions.php directly but I highly advise against that.

skeleton_footer_credits() is the function to edit.
