Footer

Post by Hoops on January 3rd 2011, 4:09 am

Are we allowed to change the appearance of the footer by removing some links? If we can, what links must be there, if any?

Thanks for the reply! I have visited the link you have posted but the answer is rather unclear. One person says its ok as long as you keep some and another say its not ok at all. I would like to know for sure because I don't want my forum closing because of something I could have prevented

Its not allowed. Don't risk your forum being deleted just to modify the footer.

If you know html and have templates, you can add stuff through the "General>>overall_footer" template. However, NEVER remove anything that was already there.

I thought you were allowed to remove everything but the Phpbb, Report An Abuse, and Forumotion. Is that wrong?

Could we possibly get Typlo's attention to this thread?

Hi,

Pleas take note, that, when you signed u to ForuMotion.com, you agreed to the Terms Of Service, which clearly states the following:

ForMotion.com terms Of Service wrote:Forumotion.com is a site entirely free. We strive to offer quality service. We ask that you do not remove the copyright information and footer set up on your forums because they prove you belong to the Forumotion.com family. Every forum that has edited or removed these links will receive a warning.
Also, it is forbidden to remove or hide the sponsored links through any means other than the one provided, namely the credits management. We provide a quality service completely free and are always looking to improve it to meet your expectations. For these reasons, we ask that you respect our terms.


The answer to your question, No, you are not allowed to remove any links.
Typlo has also stated this sometime in late 2009.


However, you ARE allowed to add your own information, text, links, and copyright information there.
As far a changing the words, forum "Report an abuse" to "abuse", and "free forums" to "powered by forumotion" ect, I'm not too sure

I would assume you could, however, as a precaution, I'd rather change the permission level of it.
Admin panel >> users & Groups > Special permissions > stats > Admin (or none)

Nopes you were told right, it's just, it's been changed in the last 6ish months so to reflect my earlier statement - that wasn't announced though. Wink

We are talking about what Typlo has told us. So there is no need for a admin to respond here, the answer remains the same Smile
