How to remove "Powered by Kunena Forum"

How to remove “Powered by Kunena Forum”

In file
joomla25_root/administrator/components/com_kunena/libraries/view.php

Find this code at around line 73

Code:
         echo $this->poweredBy();

Change to

Code:
//         echo $this->poweredBy();

In my brief tests that eliminated the nag.

The actual code is lower down in the same file around line 394

Code:
   final public function poweredBy() {
$credits = ‘<div style=”text-align:center”>’;
$credits .= JHTML::_(‘kunenaforum.link’, ‘index.php?option=com_kunena&view=credits’, JText::_(‘COM_KUNENA_POWEREDBY’), ”, ”, ‘follow’, array(‘style’=>’display: inline; visibility: visible; text-decoration: none;’));
$credits .= ‘ <a href=”http://www.kunena.org” rel=”follow” target=”_blank” style=”display: inline; visibility: visible; text-decoration: none;”>’.JText::_(‘COM_KUNENA’).’</a>’;
if ($this->ktemplate->params->get(‘templatebyText’)) {
$credits .= ‘ :: <a href =”‘. $this->ktemplate->params->get(‘templatebyLink’).’” rel=”follow” target=”_blank” style=”text-decoration: none;”>’ . $this->ktemplate->params->get(‘templatebyText’) .’ ‘. $this->ktemplate->params->get(‘templatebyName’) .’</a>’;
}
$credits .= ‘</div>’;
echo $credits;
}

You need to edit this file using an text editor. Then find the following piece of code

echo $credits;

Simply remove this line or replace it with this  //echo $credits;
Save the file and you will see that the Kunena forum copyright text is removed.
