    It allowed to change the copyright text Forum software by XenForo ™ © 2010-2012 XenForo Ltd.. to something like this Forum software by XenForo?

    No, the copyright must be left entact as is.

    If you wish to edit / remove it you would need to purchase branding free.

    Why would you want to change it in that way anyway?

    I can understand people wanting to remove it, but not alter the wording in a very minor way.

    I did not mean to remove copyright text.
    Copyright text is too long in my opinion and I believe that it is no problem to have such an opinion.

    But unfortunately the same applies, you cannot even change the Copyright text, as per the license agreement:

    I have wanted to change it for cosmetic reasons, not remove but just alter the wording. IMO the text is too long, but i'm not going to pay that hefty fee just to alter it to fit in with themes I make.

    All I can suggest is if you wanted to make such a change is to write a support ticket asking permission to do so. However the License terms are quite clear, so don't be surprised if the answer is still "No."

    If I were the owner of the copyright I'd be reviewing the requirement for this copyright link in view of the latest Google algo. The rug from under sitewide footer links has been well and truly pulled, they would be much better to ask for a single page on the site expounding the virtues of Xenforo. I personally would also find this less link spamy and much more professional.

    I don't mind the text it's self but I'm not a fan of the link.

    So buy the Copyright removal option, the choice is yours. That's what I did, as I did not liked the Copyright neither.

    I'll be honest the copyright doesn't bother me one bit. It's not intrusive and the text is small. If it's that bothersome dig deep and purchase branding removal = problem solved.

    I have no problem with copyrights in the footer.... ie... 1 line, 1 link, per product

    XenForo's is just fine right were it is. :)

    I've never paid for removal and honestly, never will.

    My vBulletin copyrights from everything I installed, was a joke (privately and publicly)

    I'm not paying $250 to remove a link on the footer of my forum. I've not got a problem with the text. just the link.
  14. Shelley

    Shelley Well-Known Member

    That's your choice, and I respect your decision but that is your only solution which is available if the link is that troublesome to you. :)

    Is your choice... then you should not have a problem with the link also, as you need rights to remove it.
    Me too I don't like that Facebook is more popular than my site. :) Cheers
