find template files to adjust

Hi there!

 

I'm new to Magento and just getting into it really, so I am hoping to find help here.

 

I would like to do some adjustments on our webshop which was set up by another company, but I can not find the files (templates) which I have to work on. I did this

grep -r "copyright 2013-2016" *

and the files I found (e.g. "mage---464_CONFIG_GLOBAL_STORES") were contained in subfolders (mage--0, mage--1, ...) of "home/git/htdocs/var/cache".

 

Is it possible to make changes in one single file?

 

---Magento Version 1.9.1.0---

 

Thanks a lot in advance.

If you want to change copyright message in the footer, just log into Magento Admin, and go to:

System -> Configuration -> Design -> Footer -> Copyright.

 

There you can update footer message. Don't forget to clear the cache (System -> Cache Management -> Flush Cache Storage) or just delete content of var/cache/* directory.

Awesome, thanks for the quick response Sinisa. That helped me.

 

The thing is that I am looking for a way to understand the structure all in all. How can I track down the elements I see on the page in the folder structure and the files. Are the Magento templates generally adjustable in the backend or are there elements I would have to rewrite in the template files?

Re: find template files to adjust

You can enable template hints if you want to see how particular page is composed from different blocks and templates, and everything together glued with layout. Check:

But I'm not sure that it will be that helpful to you; instead, you should get familiar with block/template/layout concepts in Magento1, for example:

Cheers for that! The intro is probably exactly the right thing to get me going.
