I want to edit the footer on my forums can anyone help me? here is the forum http://themetron.com/forum/index.php?p=/
http://docs.vanillaforums.com/developer/theming/quickstart/ I suggest following that to make your own theme so you don't work on default. It's never a good idea to edit default stuff.
I made changes to mine in /themes/my_theme_name/views/default.master.tpl
Around line 64 you will see the footer code start. I added a copyright that automatically updates each year, links, and kept the link back to Vanilla though it said in the forum someplace that it can be removed, I prefer to give them the free promotion as the forum is awesome.
