Editing the copyright
#1
This is probably a stupid question but I want to be sure..
In the footer template, it says like this:

Quote:<!-- You may NOT remove, modify or hinder the visibility of the MyBB copyright at any time.
It must contain the links to the MyBB website and be formatted appropriately.

Failure to comply with the above will result in prosecution to the full extent of the law.
This is free software, support us and we'll support you. -->

My question is that if it's okay to modify the copyright as long as a "Powered by MyBB" link remains visible on all pages? Or do I have to keep it exactly as it is?
I mention that I don't intend to modify it in order to hide the fact that I run a MyBB forum, I'm actually proud of that Big Grin

The minimum is this:

Quote:Powered by MyBB

Must say at least that* and have a link back.

* Can be an adapted version, like 'Forum software by MyBB' is fine.

The reason yours says that is because the footer template was changed when we updated the new copyright text, and your template hasn't been reverted.
Can you still feel the butterflies?

Free never tasted like pudding.

We cannot remove the Copyright? I thought we could since it's GPL.

You can, you just won't get support if you remove it or if it's less then the minimum
