#48779 new feature request

Enhancement: Twenty Twenty: Copyright and WordPress as text widget

I would request to have all content elements easily editable. The only elements I couldn't change from the wp-admin interface were the footer copyright and wordpress text. I would like to change the Copyright to make it linkable and add creative commons to it. Now I had to do it a technical way by child theming, but not everyone is that technical.

Custom HTML (copyright) & Text widgets (wordpress link) with a third footer or so could be a solution? Only disadvantage is that WordPress doesn't support PHP by default for security reasons so you can't add the actual site name by code. But a lot of sites doesn't use their company name as site name so it can also be some lorum ipsum text.
e.g. © <script>document.write(new Date().getFullYear())</script> My Company

The Twenty Twenty theme handles this the same way all the previous bundled Twenty* themes did.

Replying to joyously:

The Twenty Twenty theme handles this the same way all the previous bundled Twenty* themes did.

Good day joyously, Yes. sorry I don't understand the reason behind this remark. I guess there were other improvements too compared to the previous bundled Twenty* themes. The reason for posting this feature request is to improve the theme and its future bundled Twenty* themes.

I would like to add a big +1 to this ticket. I feel that changing the copyright footer shouldn't require creation of a child theme when so much can be accomplished with CSS

If footer credit text were a widget, there would be new widgets area. I feel this situation is out of widgets area context. This would be better the footer credit is editable from customizer instead. However, should other themes follow this rule as well? I think no at this time. If I stand on theme's developer shoes, I would be happy if people could appreciate my work.
