Customizing the Footer

From ALSwiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Edit the file:

 /language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_footer.ini

If you want to remove the 2nd line fo the footer entirely, change it to:

 FOOTER_LINE2=

I changed the second line of the footer. The resulting file is:

 # $Id: en-GB.mod_footer.ini 9765 2007-12-30 08:21:02Z ircmaxell $

In Joomla 1.7 (and maybe 1.6) there is an over-ride file at:

/language/overrides/en-GB,override.ini

Change the line there instead of editing he main file. e.g.:

  FOOTER_LINE2=Site designed built and run by <a href="http://www.alstevens.org/">Al Stevens</a> Using <a href="http://www.joomla.org">Joomla!</a>
