Changing the footer text in the Divi Theme Customizer has some has limitations:
Shortcodes for © and 2017 will not work from there (nor the equivalent html) – unless you are using our custom child theme. 😉

  1. You can customise your child theme to be able to use these shortcodes in the Divi Theme Customizer.
  2. Or for a no-fuss, no-code option, you can use these shortcodes if you customise the footer with the Divi Booster plugin (instructions below):


A) With the Divi Booster plugin installed, navigate to Divi>Divi Booster in the menu.

navigate to divi booster plugin settings


B) Scroll to the “Footer” dropdown area to change info. “Replace footer links…” checkbox should be marked. Edit as needed.
