@anieto How did you change from Powered by Hugo to Powered by Micro.blog!? if I may ask. I do have a custom Footer but for some reason it doesnt show if I am using Hello

@Gabz so the Hello theme does not make use of the custom footer that’s available in account settings. You’ll have to Edit Custom Themes for the Hello theme and modify the file at: layouts/partials/footer.html. You can read more about that process here: help.micro.blog/2019/abou...

@anieto @Gabz Sounds like we need to update Hello to make sure it looks for the custom footer. Thanks!

@anieto hm! that's what I thought, that it wasn't just going to be a simple CSS line of code or soemthing. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction!

@manton That'd be awesome! I tend to break things up when messing with custom themes. 😅🤙

@manton no problem. Once I have my theme all customized the way I like, is there an easy way to export all the theme files? I would like to share it on my own GitHub. I know I can duplicate the orginal GitHub theme and then just copy/paste the modified files but not sure if there's and easier way.

@anieto Only copy/paste right now. We used to have a feature that would push everything to GitHub and had to disable it. I'm planning a better way to "link" theme files to external resources, but it won't be ready for a while.

@manton Can we have a user-submitted directory on Micro.blog themes that we can directly use from? You can curate which ones make it in there but after that the submitter provides support and updates.

@pratik That would be great! I always hoped that that would happen, but I don't think most custom themes have been shared. We could start by having a help page with links to other themes (since anyone can request an edit to help pages on GitHub).
