    If you read the plugin developer rules on this page: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/ you will notice that this plugin is breaking rule #4. That being said, you could contact the plugin author and make them aware of this.

    This is taken from the faq of the plugin:

    Q. How can I get rid of the Powered By message? A. Because WP Symposium is covered by the GPL licence, you can edit and change the code - but remember you'll have to do it each time you upgrade. However, if you subscribe at http://www.wpsymposium.com and activate the Groups plugin, you can edit it through the admin area.

    I downloaded the plugin and found this on line 798-799 of wp-symposium.php:

    // Powered by message
    	echo powered_by_wps();

    Simply comment the second line (799) so that it looks like:

    // Powered by message
    	// echo powered_by_wps();

    Good luck!

    Joachim - thanks! I downloaded the wp-symposium.php file and commented it out, and this did indeed solve the problem. Much obliged!

    hi - so they did an update and of course he changed the code so that the "Powered by WP Symposium - Social Networking for WordPress v12.01.07" cannot be as easily commented out. can you take a look at it and see if you can figure out what he did to hide it?

    The 'powered by' message can be edited from the Templates section of WP Symposium Settings page. Where else...?

    Why is it that people don't look through the options of the plugins they are working with? Do they always just want to jump on a forum and have someone else do it for them??

    That's funny..
