Modify Branding


Recommended Posts


I'm in the middle of creating a custom xhtml strict template for a client.


One of the, many, sections of code that I need to modify is the default branding, which I've done, but I've also changed it to just read "WHMCS" instead of the whole "powered by" ... mainly to slow down the kiddie scripters that use goggle as an ego trip.


My question is, would that invalidate the clients licence as I'm pretty sure they'll only purchase a branded licence when their trial version expires, or is it ok as long as there's a backlink on every page?

The problem is, that invalidates the template I'm making as the <p> tab has align="center" .. am I at least allowed to modify that tag to remove the align and add an id so I can target it with css?


Note : I'm not doing this by hacking any of the files, which would (obviously) be a breach of the LA, I just need to be able to produce an XHTML strict/WAI compliant template :-S

Considering the amount of work involved in making a valid template, modifying the default link was the least of my worries ... and the simplest one to cure ... some of the others are gonna require *far* more imagination and "bending" of the normal output ;)


Removing all the js reliance is liable to take a tad though :P
