Template support for Copyright Link


Recommended Posts

Maybe you could include a template variable within the footer.tpl file, that has a reference to the copyright.


Maybe {copyright} ?;)


The reason I say this is that many many people are wanting to move it into the footer of their website layout, in order to make their websites look more professional.


It's a shame paying for such a good quality software and this link actually ruins how the pages look in most circumstances.


Finally, don't think I haven't thought of just "paying the extra to remove the branding", but that should not be what WHMCS wants, due to the fact for that small little fee they charge extra, they could swap for a vast amount of advertising on customers websites, via the copyright link.


So, as a security precaution (to stop people removing the branding without paying), why not simply encode an if statement in the main PHP code, the same place where the current link is hard coded, and stop the page from loading if the page doesn't contain the {copyright}. Many software now has this, to allow the styling and modification of the branding.

I'd suggest it's too problematic to check the page it lives on, since that would open it up to being spoofed or hidden, etc. It's fine where it is, and paying for the branding free is a good solution in my opinion. I've done it for an owned and a leased license now.

Up to you if you follow that lead...

My point exactly.
