How to Remove “Powered by Joomla!” Footer and copyright?

How to Remove “Powered by Joomla!” Footer and copyright

Most Joomla sites, with or without snazzy templates applied, all carry a pretty standard Powered by Joomla! footer text.

Now while most people should be in favour of keeping this in, there are a lot of us out there who simply don’t want it spoiling our tight site design, and so digging around the web revealed the two simplest ways of removing this line of text from your website.


First, you could actually edit the core files of your Joomla 1.5 installation directly. To do this, go to the core files, navigating through core files >> Languages >> en-GB.mod_footer.ini.

Opening this file you will see the lines:


FOOTER_LINE1=Copyright © %date% %sitename%. All Rights Reserved.

FOOTER_LINE2=Joomla! is Free Software released under the GNU/GPL License.

Simply change the data to what you would like to display and voila – you are done! :D

Another way to do this is in Joomla 1.5.xx if you want to remove the footer, go to Extensions > Module Manager and unpublish the footer module. quite simple..

Now to remove the powered by joomla , find code related to footers in these files, you can either edit it to yours or remove it in your active template.

index.php file for your active template
