How do I change Powered by Vanilla link at the header and footer

This is driving me nuts. I have firerfox and firerbug installed but for the life of me I cannot find the index.html file to edit this string.

< div id="site-generator">< a href="" >Powered by Vanilla and < a href="">Netfirms< /a>*/div>

I would like to add this < a target="_blank" to the links or remove them all together because they keep stealing people away from my site.

Example New:
< div id="site-generator">< a target="_blank" href ="" >Powered by Vanilla< /a> and < a target="_blank" href ="" >Netfirms< /a>< /div>

Or what open-source programs are you guys using to do string searches in HTML, PHP, CSS type files. Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you

    Maybe you have to check the file /applications/dashboard/views/default.master.php out.

    Change line
    echo Wrap(Anchor(T('Powered by Vanilla'), C('Garden.VanillaUrl')), 'div');
    echo Wrap(Anchor(T('Powered by Vanilla'), C('Garden.VanillaUrl'), NULL, array('target' => '_blank')), 'div');
    or anything you want.

    btw, I think target attribute is invalid in XHTML 1.0 Strict, isn't it?

    Yes, your right but in XHTML 2.0 it will become a valid attribute ;-)

    I didn't know that. Thanks mate. I feel outdated…

    I do not have /applications/dashboard/views/default.master.php

    I am using the most recent version and need to have this off my site as well. Any help would be appreciated
