I'm using RN76 2.02.02, my question is, and yes I read the *don't change copyright* info ...

Is it too much to ask to be able to change the copyright (in footer, found in meta.php) from one looooooooooooooong line to two medium lines? From one massive line ...

To two smaller lines like ...

Is that too much to ask??? Hmmm?

I'd just change it to one small line: PHP-Nuke Copyright © 2004 by Francisco Burzi.

The rest of the stuff is fluff.

Thanks for your replies : o}

It's not *legal* to change it to just a short line LOL, and I respect that! I tried to put it on it's own line but it didn't work, I didn't try the br command because it's a php page and not an html page. How do I make a line break?

Text is text, no harm was done by adding a line break. The copyright is still in place and intact.

You can just edit your config table to modify the copyright

OK good, now, where is this config table and how do I edit it to add a break in the line? LOL

It's perfectly legal to change the displayed copyright on your site. You can even remove it completely from your site and from the code (although I think it's dishonorable). What you cannot do is remove the copyright from the source code and redistribute the source code.

For example, look at the install function included in version 8.0. This came from Joomla. Is Joomla in the displayed copyrights? It is in the source code.

Not trying to start a debate about this, as it has been hashed over many times.

To answer the last question, just insert
Code:
<br/>
in the config.php file inside the copyright text.

oh so the slash is behind the br? whodathunk!? I tried < /br > (less the spaces of course LOL ... ok so you are saying as long as I leave the code IN the meta.php file I can make it invisible? or even shorten what is seen and make the rest invisible?

I just don't want to infringe on his copyright, I respect it and I agree it's not something to be debated. My copyright, the one I want to change is in the bottom of the meta.php file btw (but I'll also look in the config.php).

Nope, the copyright I'm referring to kguske is the copyright that shows at the very bottom of the page ... it's no where in my config.php file, the only place I've seen it is in the meta.php file. I'm not referring to anything that doesn't show on the page but the way-to-long-copyright-text that shows at the bottom of the page(s).

Folks ... I cannot find where 'o where that is in any file : o/ As stated above, the *sentence* (in the footer, I assume footer 4 since it cannot be altered from the Admin Preferences even) I want to simply put a line break is:

PHP-Nuke Copyright (c) 2004 by Francisco Burzi. This is free software, and you may redistribute it under the GPL (http://phpnuke.org/files/gpl.txt). PHP-Nuke comes with absolutely no warranty, for details, see the license (http://phpnuke.org/files/gpl.txt).

I want two distinct sentences, not one looooooooong one. I thought it was in meta.php but any change I try to make in that file appears to have NO effect. Nor do I find it in config.php ... HELP!?

I have a phpMyAdmin tutorial on my own site via my phpMyAdmin area. I've perused Raven's How To ... but I'm sorry to say this doesn't really help me since I'm not a programmer, and not overly code savvy. I have no clue how to edit a config table without probably messing it up. If it's that difficult to answer this question I'll just leave the silly looooooooooooooooooong line credit as is I guess. Thanks anyway.
