How can I remove the Powered By / Copyright footer text?


Common Questios

You can hide the Powered By InstantForum or Powered By InstantKB and the standard copyright message that is displayed at the bottom of each InstantForum & InstantKB page.

We have no problem with licensed customers removing this message and have made it very easy to do so. You can learn how to hide the footer message for both InstantForum & InstantKB below...

InstantForum

To remove the Powered By message shown at the bottom of each InstantForum page you will need to open the Skins/{YourSkinName}/MasterPage.Master file within NotePad or similar text editor.

<footer>
<div style="text-align: center; width: 100%;">
<InstantASP:Literal id="lblPoweredBy" Text="Footer_PoweredBy" runat="Server" /> <InstantASP:HyperLink id="hypCopyright" runat="Server" /><br />
<InstantASP:Literal id="lblRequestTime" Runat="server"/> <InstantASP:Literal id="lblDatabaseQueries" Runat="Server"/> <InstantASP:Literal id="lblCompression" runat="server"/>
</div>
</footer>

To hide the Powered By message modify this like so...

<div runat="server" visible="false">
<div style="text-align: center; width: 100%;">
<InstantASP:Literal id="lblPoweredBy" Text="Footer_PoweredBy" runat="Server" /> <InstantASP:HyperLink id="hypCopyright" runat="Server" /><br />
<InstantASP:Literal id="lblRequestTime" Runat="server"/> <InstantASP:Literal id="lblDatabaseQueries" Runat="Server"/> <InstantASP:Literal id="lblCompression" runat="server"/>
</div>
</div>
