    Joomla: How to change the copyright of a template?

    Hello everyone,

    I've downloaded a template that when I change the copyright links it says: This free theme is released under creative commons license,therefore all links in the footer must remain intact. You have downloaded this theme for free and all we ask is one link back.

    Does anyone know how I can remove this option?

    Here is the link that I try to modify:

    <div id="tg-bottom-menu-left"><div id="credit" class="credit"><a href="www.educationtemplate.com" target="_blank">Joomla education template</a> by <a href="www.securitytechreviews.com" target="_blank">internet security</a>.</div></div>

    Besides paying for it, there's nothing you should do to remove copyright information.

    As Bruce notes and is a requirement of using creative commons licensed content, it is not an 'option', but a requirement of using the FREE template. Make your own template and you can do as you wish!

    You should be able to dig through the code and find where they verify the copyright link. Of course that would probably take you more time than it is worth and you would be in violation of copyright. If the template owner wanted, they could come at you legally for the violation and it would cost you more than buying it.

    Bottom line, leave the notice there or pay for the template without it.
