How to remove 'copyright' and 'powered by links' in footer (5 posts)

    I love your plugin. It is the best I've tested so far.

    Can I remove the ColorLabs and MobileView links from the footer?

    If so, how is this done?

    Thank you.

    Maker a back-up of the file[s] you're editing...

    I have not tested neither this plug-in, nor this suggestion.
    Just based on reading the code I'd try this. If it does.nt work, just restore the backup-file.

    Edit the footer.php of the plugin.
    remove line 7 thru 11
    save and re-upload

    Check the result

    Thank you. That worked.

    I edited the footer.php file located here: /plugins/mobileview/themes/hipnews/iphone/footer.php

    Do you know if there is a way to create a child theme for this plugin? I'm afraid these changes will be overwritten when the plugin is updated.

    Hi dimages,

    I've had a look at http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes and some responses to that same question on the forum.

    The prevailing response seems to be that creating a 'child-plugin' is a good idea, yet difficult / nearly impossible to do reliably / easily.

    Combining common sense and some suggestions, I end up with this:

    1. Create a copy with a distinct name and place it in the plugin directory. Should you find the updated plugin conflicts with your needs, you'll have a reminder / fall back plan you can test.
    2. The other suggestion I've come accross is to place the changed plugin-code in the 'regular' style.css of the childtheme.

    If you wish you could test this by 'restoring' the 'old situation' and placing the changed code in the style.css of the childTHEME.
    If you have a positive result: option 2 works.
    If you have a negative result: just edit the style.css of the plugin and try option 1.

    Please let me know the outcome?

    Thank you for the thoughtful response. I am just beginning to work with child themes. It may be some time before I attempt this.
