From time to time we build websites on the WordPress platform. Our client’s are often wanting to manage all of their content on their pages easily, so WordPress is a great solution. I won’t go into how great WordPress is, or how it can be used as a CMS, or how there are tons of plugins available to help speed up development time, because there are many websites and blog posts already covering these things.
We created a very simple plugin that allows the administrator to edit the footer text that shows in the lower left corner of the WordPress Admin pages. You can download the plugin from our server. Once downloaded, you can just upload the folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder on your webserver. Activate the plugin from the Plugins Admin in your WordPress installation and then navigate to Settings -> nuAdmin Footer and add whatever footer message you would like. If you install it, let us know how you like it and what other things you would like added, if any.
Here is a screenshot of the admin part that allows you to change the text in your footer.
Update: I have finally added code to the SVN at WordPress so you can download the plugin from WordPress.org
Download the nuAdmin Custom Footer WordPress Plugin
It seems there have been some people a bit confused as to where the text shows up. The left side of the footer in the admin area is what you can edit.
