    Its worked!
    It worked! Thank you very much!
    Could you explain to me why it is necessary to use these lines:

    function remove_default_credits(){

    Without these lines, the original text appears at the top followed by the custom text.

    1. Sangam

      It removes the original copyright text.

      If you modify theme directly then changes will reset. If you use plugin or child theme then change will persist.

      I have not tried it with other themes by Themegrill, it may not work for other themes. You have to make a child theme and have to edit yourself. If you feel any problem regarding this feel free to reply.
