    A crude way is to change the file itself.
    Code is just a text file with a different extension really.

    If you look at the files in a text editor, notepad would do, you can find those links and replace them.
    Takes a bit of work but it is fail safe. Even if the theme is safeguarded like your footer probably is.

    Hope this helps, but if it doesn't please don't sue. :p

    Well tried to change it in Header.php but to no avail. Somehow links didn't change and i could not find any more in the file.

    Without looking at your theme: Are you sure the links are in the footer?

    But, if they are, the footer file will just link to another piece of code, another .php file. That is the place you need to find. :)

    And yes, this will take some time. I found it in a theme I use in a folder named "core", when it comes to footer links that is.

    Go into the editor on wordpress, and use the find command (either ctrl+f, or cmd+f) in each .php or .html file to search for "facebook", or "twitter" (it will highlight the links, if they're there...) and that should put you in the place where you can edit the link itself to point where you want, instead of the default.

    Most will pop up with nothing, but ONE of those files will have the links, if it's showing on your page.
