Yes in the settings interface (user interface section) it is possible to customize the header and the footer.

Also, it is possible to create templates "custom_footer.html" and "custom_header.html" - all live in askbot/skins/default/templates - also it will be necessary to specify in the live settings that you want to hide the default footer.

Unfortunately, the skin is not yet finalized - so it is best to edit the default and ideally - keep it in your own git repository - because it really simplifies merging the code.

All of the code can be freely modified - git will help a lot to maintain your changes and upgrade the main code.
