Copyright notice removal license
« on: March 21, 2012, 01:38:53 AM »
Hi, I love your eCommerce solution, its great, thanks for everything you guys have done.  Additionally I would like to ask a question about removing Powered by: Abantecart.  I know this is copyrighted and probably illegal to remove without permission from the creators. However some Ecommerce sites allow for the purchase a removal license and my client might seek it.  Does AbanteCart offer a Copyright notice removal license?  Thanks

Thank you for your comments.

You can remove "Powered by: Abantecart" message from storefront and admin web pages. What you can not remove (as per AbanteCart license) is a copyright and license massages in the source files. These are in the heading of all the files. These messages are not visible to online users.

Hi,

Just a suggestion why not say on your website ask for a donation to remove the Branding from the back and front panel of the shopping cart??

Just delete this line:

<div class="pull-right textright"> <?php echo $text_powered_by ?> <a href="..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;"
title="Ideal OpenSource E-commerce Solution">AbanteCart</a>
</div>

in this file: storefront>view>default_html5>template>common>footer.tpl

if you are using the default html 5 theme. I hope it helps.

Just to let everyone know. There is a whitelabel extension available for v1.1.8
You can put custom message instead of copyright. No coding needed.

Just installed that into my dev site - as first I thought it was not as full-featured as I had hoped.   I wanted to be able to have links.  The direction of Text caused me to think I could not use links.   However,  with testing I find can use HTML to add links, etc.  So all is good now.

Only caution would be that it you invoke this (turn it ON) you will need to have something in every field or make it blank.  ON impacts all the areas, Admin footer,  Store footer, email footer.

But for 10.00 bucks it's easier than having to find the code every time there is an update!

Thanks
Lee
