Footer

How would I add my own sites copyright to the footer? I’m not removing anything. Just adding.

For the 1.1 line, its in your index.language.php file e.g. /themes/default/languages/english/index.english.php file.  Search for a $forum_copyright string and change it to what you would like.

There are no requirements to keep the ElkArte name, nice yes, required, never.

We can remove the ElkArte notice in the footer?

Question: how do I change it? I added some text but then the site gets an error when I do that. Is there a certain php code or something I need to use to add my site's copyright?

Yes

It should be valid HTML, which includes simply plain text.  You could make it
Code: [Select]
$forum_copyright = 'My Awesome Sauce Community';
If you can post a sample of what you did then someone could debug further.

I put this but it does not show up in the footer:

<?php
// Version: 1.1; index

global $forum_copyright; 'ChristianBoard.net Copyright © 2022. All rights reserved.';

// Locale (strftime, pspell_new) and spelling. (pspell_new, can be left as '' normally.)
// For more information see:
//   - http://www.php.net/function.pspell-new
//   - http://www.php.net/function.setlocale
// Again, SPELLING SHOULD BE '' 99% OF THE TIME!!  Please read this!
$txt['lang_locale'] = 'en_US';
$txt['lang_dictionary'] = 'en';
$txt['lang_spelling'] = 'american';

I get this error on my site:


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '=', expecting ';' or ',' in /home/jesuslov/christianboard.net/themes/default/languages/english/index.english.php on line 4

Fatal error: Exception thrown without a stack frame in Unknown on line 0

Remove your edit, then navigate to line 577 and change the existing $forum_copyright variable to be

Code: [Select]
$forum_copyright = 'ChristianBoard.net Copyright &copy; 2022. All rights reserved.';
