And that’s it! Simple as that.

Bonus #1

Dynamically Add The Site Title!

Too lazy to type your site name? Want that to be automatic also? Great, we have another hack for you! Just add a second text module, and this time choose the “Site Title” in the dynamic content.

Next, add a CSS class to the ROW Custom CSS field called “pa-inline-module.” Basically we need to move the two separate modules to stack side by side with each other so they line up horizontally.

Copy the CSS snippet below into your Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS box.

Add about 4px of margin between them and you now have a 100% automatic footer copyright text in Divi! 

Bonus #2

Add Legal Links

You even use html in the “After” field, so just go for it! Nothing holding you back!

Cool!
Thank you for your work!

One question, how I can set this in the bottom line at the end of the page (under the footer)?
