    I have a very simple question: how to add a one line of text that says "this website is running the xyz plugin that was developed by John Doe"

    Thanks,

    Look at the WordPress Default theme's footer wp-content/themes/default/footer.php for an example

    Umm... thanks for the suggestion but what I don't want to modify the theme.

    My users install my plugin on their WP installation. I want to have an attribution link to my site. How can I attach it so that no matter which theme the user has my link appears below the footer.

    I hope that is clear, it should be really simple except i am a total newbie :( Thanks!

    I'm hoping to make an add_actio() call to something...

    TIA.

    There's wp_footer but if I understand it, unless the theme author hooks into that, not sure what you can do.

    Um... :( its not abt the theme

    There's gotta be a simple way for me as the plugin developer to be able to hook into it?

    check out Platinum SEO Plugin. I know that plugin gives the option of giving credit to the developer on the front page. It says SEO by Developer.

    Looks like that plugin uses:

    if (get_option('psp_link_home')) {
    	add_action('wp_footer',array($psp,'add_footer_link'));
