Footer "Built with concrete5 CMS"

Permalink 1 user found helpful
I'm using the free "Floating" theme, looks great and all, and free so can't complain, but was wondering if there's a way to take out the "Built with concrete5 CMS" message at the bottom footer of the page.

Don't get me wrong, I'm loving C5 in the few days been using it, just wondering how to take that out if needed.

Thanks.

I have the splash theme and there isn't a footer.php in the packages theme. I've searched nearly everywhere. Any other places I can look?

Look here:
yoursite/packages/your_theme/themes/your_theme/elements. There should be two files in your elements folder - a header and footer.php.
If not it means that the code would be at the bottom of all the page types so open default.php and check towards the bottom of the file for code you want to delete.

That's where I found it. Unfortunately when I erased it, I lost the entire site.

Can you look at this link from another post and tell me what is missing from line 33 that erased my site? Kinda freaking out now.

There's a line with just "<?php" on it which shouldn't be there. That basically says that what follows is PHP code when in fact it's not; it's HTML, so the parser's freaking out.

I took it out and the site didn't come back up. I took a few other out and still nothing. Here's what I have now.

I really appreciate your help because I'm lost at this point and I know it's simple coding that's missing.

Attached is the file with the footer info replaced with other text which you can customize. I would suggest you refrain from additional editing until you at least understand how to recognize PHP tags. You can't just delete them willy nilly.

Hope it helps,

First off, you shouldn't mess with a default theme. Make a copy of it and put it in the root theme folder not the sitename/concrete/themes/default.

After you have made the copy, name it like you want and install it as normal. Go into the sitename/themes/themename/elements folder and open footer.php.

Remove this line:
<span class="powered-by"><a href="http://www.concrete5.org" title="<?php echo t('concrete5 open source CMS')?>"><?php echo t('concrete5 Content Management')?></a></span>

That should get rid of Powered by Concrete5.

Hi, when I do that the whole footer is gone, eventhough I would like the rest to still be/remain there (also I get a PHP error message in screen).

Sorry for waking up an old topic, but I'm stuck at editing the footer of my theme (purchased clear view). I want to get rid of most text in the footer, but as soon as I edit anything there, it does not display at all anymore..

This is the original:
<?php defined('C5_EXECUTE') or die(_("Access Denied.")); ?>

</div><!-- #wrapper ends -->

<div id="footer">
<div class="left">
<p>&copy; <?php echo date('Y')?> <?php echo SITE?>. <?php echo t('All rights reserved.')?> <?php echo t('Design by')?> <a href="http://www.c5mix.com" title="<?php echo t('concrete5 themes')?>">c5mix.com</a>. <?php echo t('Powered by')?> <a href="http://www.concrete5.org" title="<?php echo t('concrete5 CMS') ?>"><?php echo t('concrete5 CMS') ?></a>. <?php
$u = new User();
if ($u->isRegistered()) { ?>
<span class="sign-in"><?php echo t('Currently logged in as <b>%s</b>.', $u->getUserName())?> <a href="<?php&AUTH=PA20071148%3A18537c646291556902b3063be6877b03 echo $this->url('/login', 'logout')?>"><?php echo t('Sign Out')?></a></span>
<?php } else { ?>
<span class="sign-in"><a href="<?php&AUTH=PA20071148%3A18537c646291556902b3063be6877b03 echo $this->url('/login')?>"><?php echo t('Sign In to Edit this Site')?></a></span>
<?php } ?>
</p>
</div><!-- #footer .left ends -->
<div class="right">
<span>&uarr;</span> <a href="#container"><?php echo t('Top')?></a>
</div><!-- #footer .right ends -->
</div><!-- #footer ends -->

</div><!-- #container ends -->

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
$('#menu-wrap').rb_menu({transition: 'swing', loadHideDelay: 3000});
</script>

<?php Loader::element('footer_required'); ?>

</body>
</html>

I would like to have all Concrete5, CMS and creator of the theme out of the footer. Just my website name, and the log-in to edit the site. How to do that? Any help appreciated!

A quick hack and untested, but this may do it...
<?php defined('C5_EXECUTE') or die(_("Access Denied.")); ?>
</div><!-- #wrapper ends -->
<div id="footer">
<div class="left">
<p>&copy; <?php echo date('Y')?> <?php echo SITE?>. <?php echo t('All rights reserved.')?> <?php 
$u = new User();
if ($u->isRegistered()) { ?>
<span class="sign-in"><?php echo t('Currently logged in as <b>%s</b>.', $u->getUserName())?> <a href="<?php&AUTH=PA20071148%3A18537c646291556902b3063be6877b03 echo $this->url('/login', 'logout')?>"><?php echo t('Sign Out')?></a></span>
<?php } else { ?>
<span class="sign-in"><a href="<?php&AUTH=PA20071148%3A18537c646291556902b3063be6877b03 echo $this->url('/login')?>"><?php echo t('Sign In to Edit this Site')?></a></span>
<?php } ?>
</p>
</div><!-- #footer .left ends -->
<div class="right">
</div><!-- #footer .right ends -->

(on the other hand, it may break everything)
