    You can go to your admin panel and click on modify language. It should be listed under modules on the left hand side. From there enter the word Pligg in the search box and click filter. From there you will see everywhere the word Pligg is used and you can change it directly from there.

    As for the footer link. Yes you can remove it without violating the license. You will need to edit the footer.tpl file in the template you are using. Hope that helps and clears up some inaccurate assumptions made by others.

    | Posted 908 days ago | Permalink | Hide Replies - I think you can't remove the Pligg reference.

    You may try to contact the Pligg team if you need permission to remove Pligg attribute.

    Other template makers have removed that mark and placed their own. So wouldn't it then fall under adaptations? As long as we make some changes to the template we are allowed to remove the mark and place our own?

    I dunno, though, it seems like this could use an official answer.....

    EDIT: I just double checked the License, and I didn't see where it said you have to leave the mark in the footer. I got the impression that attribution had to remain in the code, though, for sure.

    Navigate to your Template folder and then to the folder of the specific template you are using.

    Then edit the code of the Footer.tpl file, and search for the code there.

    CTRL+F or COMMAND+F are good to search for keywords.

    I think the label put by template makers is different and by no means related by what he means of the "Pligg Reference", I could be wrong though.

    Just like our templates, it has a label "Design By Us" or "Template By Us" - this is to reference the template designer, not for Pligg. We then put the attribution to Pligg, i.e. "Powered By Pligg CMS" though the template was made for Pligg 1.x where attribution is not yet required.

    That's just my own understanding of the new Pligg License and it's likely possible that I'm wrong. I think only Yankidank can officially answer this :)
