  • Remove "powered by vBulletin" in VBBS home page meta

    I could give a flip whether Jelsoft has their copyright notice in the footer or not. Not a big deal. However, I do want that "powered by vBulletin" removed in my main index.php title tag:

    <title>Yes-Its-Free.com Freebies Forums - powered by vBulletin</title>

    How and where do I get rid of it?

    Edit the forumhome template, and remove it from there... (That will only remove it on the forum home template though...)

      Or edit the x_powered_by_vbulletin phrase.

        This is what is there :

        <title><phrase 1="$vboptions[bbtitle]">$vbphrase[x_powered_by_vbulletin]</phrase></title>


        If I remove [x_powered_by_vbulletin] it leaves soething like array...

            Either remove it completely:

            $vbphrase[x_powered_by_vbulletin]

            Or edit the phrase and make it blank.

              $vbphrase[x_powered_by_vbulletin]

              It does not give proper title. It only shows url of that page in browser.

              If I leave the brackets empty or blank [] it gives a parse error

                Then change the phrase.

                  We are back to my original question then..

                  Do I change the phrase at forumhome within the brackets?

                  AND most important, what if I do not want anything at all there.
                  I do believe it should be easier to delete that thing. It is not right
                  that Jelsoft is adjusting my Title Meta Tag

                      P.S. You could also just edit the forumhone templateto use whatever title you want. It's straight HTML.

                        Ok, so apparently it cannot be removed..

                        Then what is the purpose of this being inserted in the meta positioning? Why wouldn't Jelsoft just insert the normal VBBS title as it does elsewhere on the site?

                        When I edit that tag, it wipes out the forum name and inserts only the new phrase.

                        I am just trying to understand the logic. I do not just want quick answers that imply my stupidity, but rather I think it nice to understand the purpose of the feature.

                          Honestly I'm confused by what you are asking. As I said it's easy to change this in forumhome. It's a simple HTML change:

                          <title>whatever you want the title to be</title>

                          I'm going to play around with this to see if I can understand what you are saying.

                            I was able to edit the 'x_powered_by_vbulletin' phrase and it showed up fine. Just place whatever you want the title to be in the translation box.
