Need help editing the Footer!

In my blog (, I’d like to edit the footer to link to my main website (

I have already edited the two footer.tmpl files in the writefreely directory to update the links but those changes don’t seem to reflect for some reason?

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:


Hey @xalgia, to have those changes reflect on your site, you’ll just want to restart the WriteFreely server. Let us know if that works or not.

Alas, it seems restarting the server (systemctl restart writefreely.service) as well as nginx does not change anything. What do you think is going wrong?

P.s. I fawn everyday over the simplicity, beauty, and minimalism of this app - plus the ability to manage it over tor makes it even cooler. Thank you for developing this amazing app and making it free and open source!
