If anyone prefers pure CSS solutions, here's one

Code:
div#Kunena {
    margin: 0 0 -80px;
    position: relative;
    z-index: 3;
}

Another css solution:

Code:
div#Kunena + div {
    display: none;
}

The CSS should be inserted into the stylesheet of your current template. Look into /templates/your_template_name/css/template.css or any other .css file that is being loaded.

here's how to remove Powered by Kunena 3.0:-



1- Go to /public_html/libraries/kunena/view.php

2 - Find it in the line 86 :



Quote:
if ($this->config->get('credits', 1)) $this->poweredBy();




change it to



Quote:
// if ($this->config->get('credits', 1)) $this->poweredBy();


That's all folks. I have done it by myself. But, I did it not to ignore the effort of the people who contributed to Kunena, but for some personal matters.

That just hides the link.
The "right way" is to delete the link.

True, but really is that not the desired result in the end? The same effect is reached by hiding it vs removing it. The difference for me is I don't have to go back and find it every time I update the extension and even if they change the way it displays it is a simple matter of changing the CSS.

Maybe that is the desired result for you.
Seems like a head-in-the-sand approach to me.

The majority of users do not want unrelated links on their websites ... for the obvious reasons.
- SEO effects (dilution)
- user confusion
- usability problems
- lower perceived quality

There should be no links on any website which were not put there for a specific reason.
Confusing, SEO sapping, useless nag links to not belong on any professional website.

It is relatively easy to remove the link, or use a plug-in to delete it for you.
Such as:
- Redaction Utility (P)
- ReReplacer (C)(P)

Hiding nag or spam links with CSS is just lazy and ignorant.
If you want to do it on your websites - fine.
Just do not tell others this is a smart thing to do.

Thanks kenmcd, yes I do eat a lot of sand and I agree the link should be removed, I will redact my comment.

Thanks for the extension links, I was not aware these existed but will be using them from now on. I do find it irritating that these developers demand a link back with no option to remove it. Free or not it is not doing the user any good when a link is irrelevant to their site and in effect is hurting them.

I feel it a bit over the top on your part however to assume I am lazy and ignorant and shows your arrogance which is not indicative of who I would consider a champion of anything!
I am the always receptive of criticism but I did not deserve that comment, so kindly shove it where the sun don't shine!

Glad you have seen the light.
Sorry if you were offended.
Perhaps after enduring years of similar less-than-completely-open-and-honest "just hide it" posts made by members of various extensions' sycophant clubs I am a bit insensitive.

Like the Joomla generator tag, sometimes the only explanation for these type of links appears to be ego.

I see your point ken and I totally agree with it. I get so irritated with those that know nothing thinking they know everything that it is maddening. In no way was I trying to pass off as one of those morons. I truly do thank you for your time and expertise, it is always well received to get the straight answers.
