Isn't there another way of editing some files?

Like the index.temple.php of the theme or anything?

Basically, if you install a mod that places it's copyrights somewhere - you can't remove them without asking permission from the mod author.

The items i want to remove is just links, not the authors copyright

The only links I can see that can fairly safely be removed, are the XHTML RSS and WAP2 links in the footer. Those can be removed from index.template.php.

In the default theme's index.template.php it would be this


<li><a id="button_xhtml" href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer" target="_blank" class="new_win" title="', $txt['valid_xhtml'], '"><span>', $txt['xhtml'], '</span></a></li>
', !empty($modSettings['xmlnews_enable']) && (!empty($modSettings['allow_guestAccess']) || $context['user']['is_logged']) ? '<li><a id="button_rss" href="' . $scripturl . '?action=.xml;type=rss" class="new_win"><span>' . $txt['rss'] . '</span></a></li>' : '', '
<li class="last"><a id="button_wap2" href="', $scripturl , '?wap2" class="new_win"><span>', $txt['wap2'], '</span></a></li>

You should be safe to just delete that part.

Do note that I said index.template.php, not index.php - You should be looking at /Themes/*your theme*/index.template.php :)

Hey there,

Did you manage to find the correct file on your PC? Did the edits go well? If you need no further assistance, please do mark the topic solved! :)

As for removing copyrights: I agree they're very annoying, but if you can't handle them, you should simply uninstall the mod in question. It's very disrespectful towards the mod author to remove their copyright if the mod is free. Modding is hard work you know!

An old post I know but,
I removed the above code to remove the rss wap2 xhtml at the foot of my page, but checking the error logs, i was getting constant '8: Undefined index:' in the logs, so I replaced it, but the 3 links did not reapear and I'm still getting the errors ?
I've found it....it was where I left it !

I have something to say: it's better to burn out than to fade away. There can be only one.

8: Undefined index: wap2
8: Undefined index: rss
8: Undefined index: xhtml

It seems to be bringing up that error for every page you go on. so a lot of errors !
