[Plugin: YD WPMU Bloglist Widget] Take copyright off bottoms of pages (8 posts)

    I was going to use 2 of your mods 'til I noticed they both produce copyright links down at the bottoms of all pages. I think my copyright, the theme creator's copyright & WordPress's copyright are enough.

    I'm posting this so people will know before they upload & activate that this is one of the plug-ins that puts a link on the bottom of all your pages.

    should be able to hide it simply enough using css with display:none, just like any other stuff added to themes

    FYI And all potential users: all text added to the bottom of the pages on all of my plugins are removable by unchecking a checkbox in the plugins' setting page.

    I appreciate when people leave the links because backlinks are the only benefit I get from developing free WordPress plugins.

    I would like to make perfectly clear that anyone can get rid of the links, so there is no hidden strings attached. Just read the text in the settings page of the plugin.

    Thank you for your interest in my developments.

    PS: As RVoodoo mentioned, you can also hide the links using css because I'm using specific css classes, but you don't even have to bother. Just check the box.

    Good ettiquite, and Mark Jaquith, suggest that you don't Do this without Explicitly asking for the user's permission. http://markjaquith.wordpress.com/2010/02/11/how-to-get-plugin-removed-from-dir/

    #5 Insert external links (like a credit link, My Awesome Plugin by Awesome Sauce) into their blog without explicitly asking their permission, or make the default option be to insert the link.

    You're right, and I'm in the process of making the default option not to insert the link. Although IMHO it's quite unfair that theme authors should be allowed to put links pointing to their site at the bottom of every page of a blog without asking and without providing an option to get rid of it, while plugin authors can't get credited the same way even though some plugin features are quite central to some sites.
