    That's pretty easy to do dude. If you are using a custom theme, just edit the default.master.tpl file in the views folder to add it.

    If you don't know HTML, make a back up of the file first.

    Look for something that looks like this:

    Just add the following where you want the link back to your site:
    <li><a href="">TEXT FOR THE LINK</a></li>

    If you know HTML, you can even customize the headers and footers to match your site.
    It's what I did on mine:

    If you are using default theme copy the default master from /applications/dashboard/views/default.master.php to /themes/default/views/ and edit it there.
    If the folder views does not exist, create it.
