Having unrelated outgoing links on your website is not "search engine friendly."
If the implication is that this will not harm your SEO, that is complete nonsense.

I have version 2.0.17 and use above way and works for me.

What I did is open :

modules/mod_foxcontact/tmpl/default.php
component/com_foxcontact/views/foxcontact/tmpl/default.php

using search function for "powered by" and remove the complete <h href "link" powered by....</a> and save it.


worked PERFECTLY for me. Thanks so much! :D

None of this works with the new extension, but because I've never seen someone who puts so much time into forcing his backlink on people I'll tell you what works

open neon.css in the css directory of the component, add a display:none !important tag to the fox-copyright problem solved.

So funny to see this poor developer got and still getting so much attacks, maybe he should learn something from this? May God have mercy on him and forgive his "arrogance".

Okay, so this is the correct code to wipe out all "Powered By Fox Contact" back links.

Replace the code in /components/com_foxcontact/css/neon.css at line 390 to 400 with the code below:

Code:
.fox-copyright {display: none !important;} {
float: right;
}
html[dir="rtl"] .fox-copyright {
float: left;
}
.fox-copyright a {display: none !important;} {
text-decoration: none !important;
font-family: arial,verdana,sans-serif !important;
font-variant: small-caps !important;
}

This makes the link only invisible but does not disable it!

In order to disable the invisible link you have to edit line 104 in /helpers/fsubmitter.php, eliminate the link and its attributes but not the whole line.

Hello Guys,

I had got the solution the other way to remove back link from module form,

Please go to neon.css file and make
.fox-copyright {display: none}
html[dir="rtl"] .fox-copyright {display: none}
.fox-copyright a { display: none}

Then go to /components/com_foxcontact/helpers/fsubmitter.php

find:

return $result . '</div><div class="" style="padding:10px 0 !important;text-indent:0 !important"><a target="_blank" title="Joomla contact form" href="http://www.legalera.in" style="visibility: visible !important; display: inline !important; font-size:10px !important;">powered by fox contact</a></div>';

replace it with:

return $result . '</div>';

Enjoy.

Fox Contact is a really nice extension that I recently came across. I wanted to use it for a site of mine. As far as the licensing is concerned, something does not stick right. GPL is about freedom. That is how I feel it at least. I became more than a bit frustrated while trying to remove the backlink. Version 2.0.19 of Fox Contact. Playing with the DOM, at some point, after some time on the page, the link would re-appear. Long story short, because nobody would care, after coming across obfuscated javascript for the first time (the horror!), using some simple transformations, I got the mostly deobfuscated (did not care to provide better names for some variables) fileuploader.js file. It took hours to be honest. The file is attached.

I believe it will not be removed, since it is greatly readable. Just replace the old fileuploader.js with this. This file contains stuff related to attachment uploading, the captcha, and the backlink (misty programming principles seem to creep in, when evil ways are employed, since the filename "hides" the file contents).

Note to the developer. Spending hours on this, I wonder what would happen if someone took your code, properly removed your backlink, deobfuscating some code or replacing it, and published it as an extension. Asking for donations only, donating part of them back to you. GPL can backfire like that, when you push things too far. Respect it. I did not like the feeling I got from trying to remove the backlink. I can say that I am definitely not the only one. Imagine that I signed up here just for this post (although the account will definitely come in handy for more topics). Be careful.

This is the correct way :) if you are using 2.19

I have Fox Contact 3.1.1 and it runs very slowly. After you submit the form, it takes 2-3 minutes for the success message to show up. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hello,
it happened to another user long time ago.
It means that your server has DNS related problems.
You can find here details about the problem and the related solution.

Mr. Fox,
I have been in IT business for a long time (backend programmer), and I have used many opensource applications/modules/etc. , and have always appreciated the effort of other people to help others. I wrote opensource code too, and asked nothing in return.
Now I bumped into your contact extension, installed it, and there was no option to remove your backlink. I got very frustrated, because it is clearly stated:

Quote:
Fox Contact Form is released under the GNU/GPL 3 license, which grants the freedom to share, copy, distribute and install this software unlimited times, on unlimited websites, and charge for it if you wish.
No further restrictions are being placed other than those imposed by the GPL license itself.


Well that's simply not true.
So not only this extension is not opensource, but it makes you a liar too.

Of course I was able to remove the link by altering the code, it was actually funny to see how a man can get so paranoid to spend a lot of time and effort (and you did, I admit it), to stop others to change the "opensource" code. (?!)

I think this way of deceiving people is unfair, and should be judged by software community itself.

Thanks for the reply! I tried removing the function, as well as changing the database DNS value. It still takes the same amount of time.

There is a very easy way to hide it.
simply add this piece of css style into your templates css file

.fox-copyright {
display: none !important;
}

I managed to fix it my own noobish way. I got in Notepad++ and opened default.php. This file was located in components\com_foxcontact\views\foxcontact\tmpl. The file your looking for is default.php

At line 60 there is the following: <a href="http://fox.ra.it" title="Joomla contact form" target="_blank">Powered by Foxcontacts</a>

I first tried removing the entire code, but that resulted in a 500 Internal Server Error when reloading the page, so I wisely put that back. Then what I did (I've been at this thing, reading through this topic and trying stuff all day) was just leave the space between

_blank">

and

</a>

empty. And the link was gone. Its not the cleanest way of getting rid of it. But hey, it works.

This worked for me in Joomla 2.5.7.
Fox Contacts version 2.0.17

Cheers!

EDIT:

I completely agree with 2u3. Under the GNU/GPL license, the code is supposed to be completely opensource. People using this extension should be able to just choose if they want the link there or not. Thats what opensource is supposed to be. You are trying very hard to stop people from doing that, and actually asking money for removing it. What you are doing, is actually a violation of the GNU/GPL license, and I could take this to court if I wanted to, but thats just not worth my time.

Apart from that, this is a great extension, its very easy to use, just a bit hard to customize to your own needs ;) Actually, if it was easier to modify (manually or from within the Joomla backend) I would've payed money for it
