    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    Thank you. It sounds as if there is some flexibility due to this code shortcoming, which we all appreciate. I look forward to not having to manually change the code at some point in the future. :)

    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    That reply was more for the benefit of one or more other parties to this post. :) In a perfect world, XenForo should either allow PHP to keep the year current, or make the original copyright year static. IMHO, there should also be a 'rights statement' as well, although that is just my opinion...

    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    To be clear, my original post had nothing to do with the year. It regarded the non-standard formatting due to the lack of a space following the copyright symbol.

    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    So it would be against the terms of the license agreement to properly format the copyright notice by adding a space after the copyright symbol? If so, any chance that could be addressed in the next version?

    One would certainly hope so. Thank you again. :)

    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    Thank you for the the first reasonably intelligent reply on this post. Do you know if editing this phrase counts as modifying the required copyright info?

    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    Perhaps it's past 5:00 for you, but I never said it is a reason not to use XenForo. Why would you waste anyone's time posting something so ridiculous?

    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    Hilarious, but pointless posts. If that is how they want their site to appear, that is a personal preference and decision. It should be an easy fix, as it is in most solutions, although I haven't looked into changing it yet. Since you seem to have most of the answers, is there an easy way to...

    Why is forum software version displayed to public in the install area?

    I disagree. ANY revelation of system data is another potential tool for professional or amateurs to attack a site. If you recall, XenForo recommends that we keep the 'install' directory intact, in case it is needed in the future. ANYONE can visit the /install/ path and see the software version...

    Why is forum software version displayed to public in the install area?

    I understand YOU (as a team) do not place a great deal of significance over displaying the software version, or it would not be shown on the page. I understand there are different methods to employ to protect the page, although that really does not address the 'why" of what I posted. With the...

    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    I quit using vBulletin in 2009 due to their various problems after using them for a number of years. To answer your question, no, I do not consider grammatically incorrect software (especially PAID software) making my site look amateurish "rude". The team should fix this simple mistake and make...

    Why is the copyright statement still improperly formatted?

    At the bottom of every page is this: Forum software by XenForo™ ©2010-2017 XenForo Ltd. Why is there not a space between '©' and '2010'? This may seem trivial, but it makes sites look amateurish. The proper formatting includes a space after ©, (c), Copyright or Copr., whichever is used. This...

    Why is forum software version displayed to public in the install area?

    An admin user is not logged into the forum, yet when the /install/ path is visited, the current version number of the software is displayed on the right side in the footer. This seems like an easy way for someone to learn the version number of the forum software. Why is/was this done?

    Getting the current year in the extra_copyright text field

    Yes, this is why I do not like 'hacking' core files.

    Getting the current year in the extra_copyright text field

    @DL6 Thank you for the information. Could this modification be overwritten by an update to XenForo?

    Lack of interest Copyright notice question and suggestion

    Hi - Almost every coder knows use of incorrect syntax can lead to all sorts of issues. As a recent purchaser of XenForo, I noticed the copyright notice is a little unusual. About 25 years ago, I discussed several things with legal counsel about proper formatting of a copyright notice. A couple...

    Getting the current year in the extra_copyright text field

    Hi - I saw some discussion about getting the current year into the extra_copyright field from 2012 or 2013. Is there a way to do this in the latest version of Xenforo, currently 1.5.14? Even though I purchased the product recently, I apparently do not have sufficient privileges to post in what I...
