Can I Remove Vanilla copyright footer ?

edited July 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.3

Due the license

Is it possible to remove the copyright footer ?

Comments

  • You could remove it from your theme's default.master.php, but why would you want to do that?

    If you are using your Vanilla with Locale pack, look for a string that has 'Powered By Vanilla' and just remove it.

    That won't work. Untranslated strings stay untranslated (thus en-CA). Use the method sluvender suggested but do it in your own theme. That's a lot cleaner.

    I'm sorry, but I disagree. It does work. It worked when I still had en-CA locale on my locales folder as a backup, and works still, when I have only my own locale pack installed.

    Did you really just delete the string or did you define it but leave it empty?

  • if its not defined it will show, it has to be defined to a null string.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Hi! Okay, this might be a case of me and some language barrier again, but what I meant, is to remove the 'Powered by Vanilla' part so that the actual string stays, just the translation part is empty. That way system won't try to replace it.

    $Definition['Powered by Vanilla'] = ' ';

    I do think this is more user friendly and less potentially damaging way to do it to non technical users than editing templates.

    One way of doing this is:

    #Foot a { color: #CCCCCC; display: none; }

    I'm with you on this one.

    Thanks @peregrine !

    To a opposite matter (didn't find a suitable thread). What if I wanna add links to footer? The same one's that are in the top menu: Discussions, link to user profile etc.?

  • RIGHT ON! Thanks, worked like a charm!

    Where to find it ?

    $Definition['Powered by Vanilla'] = ' ';


    In which location, is this from style Css file

    #Foot a {</p> </div></blockquote> <p>color: #ccc;<br /> }

    to be replaced with :

    #Foot a {</p> </div></blockquote> <p>color: #CCCCCC;<br /> display: none;<br /> }

    Also admin css :

    #Foot a {</p> </div></blockquote> <p>color: #076C8E;<br /> }

    to be replaced with :

    #Foot a {</p> </div></blockquote> <p>color: #CCCCCC;<br /> display: none;<br /> }

    Correct ?

    If you are using a custom theme, there will be a custom.css file in the theme's design folder.

    All css changes go in there.

    If you are using the default Vanilla theme, then follow the instructions here

    You wouldn't actually need to include the 'color' bit.

    You'd only need to declare display:none once.
