with something else, I've tried to put "test text" but output is DOWN footer text, not INSTESTEAD OF footer text
Is there any other function to obtain this? Before I've tried too the simpler plugin "Footer content" with same result.

2 - On the same site, I've tried to change text with "Network Wide Text Change" from your first post to somethin else, but nothin changes.

    Hello @italydotcom

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    FOOTER CONTENT plugin won't replace the footer content, rather it will add content in the footer. So, when you used "test text", it is shown in the footer. So, it's working correctly.

    In Network Wide Text Change addon of Branding plugin, you need to give old text, new text and the translation domain that is used in the theme or the plugin.

    Hope it helps! Please feel free to ask more question if you have.

    Sorry, but this doesn't help a lot:

    1 - FOOTER CONTENT: I understand what you mean,
    but I think is missing a plugin that does outside admin area
    what ADMIN FOOTER TEXT (says) to do:
    Unhappy at having WordPress advertised in the footer of your users’ admin area?

    Is there any plugin available for that?

    However something goes wrong, as you can check here,
    sample text display upper right, not bottom:

    2 - in TEXT CHANGE what it means "leave blank for global changes"?
    Am I compelled to insert domain name? This is a terrible work, however,
    the above phrase is clear

    Hi there

    #1. It's your css issue. If you use the following code, it should go at the bottom.

    overflow: hidden

    I am not aware of any other plugin.

    #2. If you want to change globally, then you don't need to put domain - yes. but if you want to use TEXT CHANGE feature you need to make sure you are using exactly same old text in the site.

    For example, if you see a line in your site:

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

    And you use this text as old text I don't think it will work. As in the code, the line should be like following:
    Lorem ipsum <a href="">dolor</a> sit amet
    So you need to change Lorem ipsum, dolor and sit amet separately. But there is possibilities to have same pair of words somewhere else too.

    Hope it helps! Please feel free to ask more question if you have.
