Ok, I found it also :p
Went to index.php of my template
simply removed the following code

</p>
<p id="power_by">
<?php echo JText::_('Powered by') ?> <a href="http://www.joomla.org">Joomla!</a>.
<?php echo JText::_('Valid') ?> <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer">XHTML</a> <?php echo JText::_('and') ?> <a href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer">CSS</a>.

Thanks, this really helped me. Mine was slightly different however... I successfully removed the powered by joomla footer and the valid xhtml and css but now i have a big white area at the bottom of my template. Any ideas? I did not delete the whole line, i just deleted the necessary parts. I am scared i will break the whole template if I delete the whole line.. what to do?

i did remove mine but i prefered to put it that way. but what if you just change the powerby: then write your name on it then change the link to your website that way you could have like a copyright to your site :)

Just this line:

<?php echo JText::_('Valid') ?> <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer">XHTML</a> <?php echo JText::_('and') ?> <a href="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer">CSS</a>

Hello all,

I know this thread is really old, but I have the exact same question as this. This gives me the solution, however, when I go to edit my php file it wants me to save the file as a text file. How do I edit the php file while still keeping it a php file?

Thanks,

If you are using notepad then try saving it as "index.php" instead of index.php.

Take a copy of it before changing in case something drastic goes wrong.

@nypotter, Yes different templates give different codes and designs.
first go to template manager>select your template>select "Edit HTML">index.php file will be open in template HTML editor>press "ctrl+f" or just press "/" to open the find tool> type "powered by", it will show you the exact place>now find the <p> tags which holds "powered by","css validator" and "XHTML validator"> you will find all the <a> tags there> now you can remove all those codes or just comment those codes> I recommend you to comment those codes. i.e. <!-- all the codes you want to comment-->. this may help. regards!

Extensions > Template Manager
Select Milkyway
Select Edit HTML
CTRL + F and search for power_by
Edit as above, and save when your done

You can download the index.php file and edit it outside of the back-end
If your doing that I would recommend an editor like Notepad++

<pid="Copyright">
<?php echo JText::_('Copyright © 2011-2018') ?> <a href="http://www.XXX.com">XXXl.com</a><?php echo JText::_('. All Rights Reserved.') ?>

</p>



The above program, will put copyright information, as shown in the footer middle position
but next program,will put copyright information, as shown in the footer right position


<p id="Copyright">
<?php echo JText::_('Copyright © 2011-2018') ?> <a href="http://www.XXX.com">XXXl.com</a><?php echo JText::_('. All Rights Reserved.') ?>

</p>


I don't know if you can find the difference between above two programs.

Maybe these useful to you.

Hi,
Just follow the following Instruction,

step1: Find out the file en-GB.mod_footer.ini
You will find it from here, go to your /yourjoomlafolder/language/en_GB

Step2: Find out the following code,

FOOTER_LINE2=<a href="http://www.joomla.org">Joomla!</a> is Free Software released under the <a href="http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html">GNU/GPL License.</a>

Step3: Now change it

FOOTER_LINE2=<a href="your link goes here">Your text</a>

Finish !!! :laugh:

In almost all of the templates you will find the link attribution at the bottom or footer just remove that code in the Index.php file and its done. However its a good ethics to leave attribution link at the bottom as a Thank to the developer.

Hi all !
i have joomla 2.5 and beez_20 template , however i found it difficult to remove the joomla powered by .

this is the code in index.php

<div id="footer">

<jdoc:include type="modules" name="position-14" />
<p>
<?php echo JText::_('TPL_BEEZ2_POWERED_BY');?> <a href="http://www.joomla.org/">Joomla!&#174;</a>
</p>


</div><!-- end footer -->

BUT the problem is if i remove the powered by then the website shows good without it and after few seconds the powered returns as it was the first time , as i didnt change . i think something is generating it somewhere . can any body tell me where its generated ? i dont know why joomla force to make powered by joomla !!
