Post by Nessa on May 18th 2010, 6:54 am

Hello Hi Manky, Sorry for the confusion. The TOS was recently updated on the Romanian Support forum about the link removes due to the fact there was so many questions about it there and members not knowing for certain or abiding by the rules.
Therefore after further discussion with forumotion , Luky updated the information there to better alleviate any more confusion over the issue there. Here on the English support forum we are all very well aware that editing the links in the footer is generally not permitted and can get your forum reported for violating the TOS.
But under the updated TOS about the issue it is now permitted as long as the main link remains linking back to forumotion.

Sorry for the confusion Manky. Luky or Typlo will be updating such information here about the recent TOS changes whenever possible. Wink

I don't believe so, as long as they leave the one link linking back to forumotion their forums should remain intact. Smile

I will leave it up to Typlo and Luky to further verify and update the TOS here about this when they have the time. Wink

As of right now there is no announcement as to when that will happen.

The footer can be edited by templates. Punbb and phpbb2.

Well deleting everything in that templates will not make anything apper. You must have the

Code:
<!-- BEGIN html_validation -->
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<body>

<!-- END html_validation -->
</body>
</html>

Here is no announcement yet about the right to edit the footer , but on the Romanian Support Forum the TOS was recently updated by Luky . You can see this announcement HERE ( you use google translate )

Because of this , I changed the footer according to the latest updates Razz
I suggested HERE a new type of footer for everyone , both those who use phbb3, invision or phbb2 and punbb ! I don't like the current design , and I suggested a new footer more elegant and professional Razz

This is the code that I use it :
Code:

<center>
Copyright © 2009-2010 <a href="http://YOUR_SITE"><b><font color=#00A5CD>YOUR_SITE</font></b></a>. All rights reserved.<br>
Powered & hosted by <a href="http://www.forumotion.com/"><b><font color=#00A5CD>Foru</font><font color=#7CBA2C>motion</font></b>.ro</a><br>
<a href="http://help.forumotion.com"><b>Free forum support</b></a><br>
Version of forum - <b>phpbb2</b><br>
Design by <a href="http://www.fr3shpedia.net/profile.forum?mode=viewprofile&u=1"><font color=red><b>Your name</b></font></a><br>
<a href="http://www.phpbb.com/"><b>© phpbb</b></a><br>
</center>

Modify the code above to your forum ! But be careful , we are not allowed to remove the footer , if you remove the footer , your forum would be delete ! I change the design of footer in my forum , according to the latest updates on the Romanian Support Forum because I am Romanian . Remember , here is no announcement yet about this right Sad

So we can remove the current footer, and then add the footer you gave as an example?

Lets get this straight.

As of now we are not allowed to edit or delete the footer.

Since Romanian Support Forum changed their ToS we ask Typlo about it and he would make the necessary changes. Till the changes are made we still can't edit or delete the footer.


Leaf if you want to edit your footer please ask this in your own topic when the ToS is changed about it. Till then don't ask how.
