"powered by" on home page only?

Hello everyone,

I’m baffled as to how I can have the “powered by” link in the footer ONLY show on the homepage. On any other page, I’d like it removed.

I can edit/modify it no problem, and I can remove it all together. Is it possible to specify the page/s when it’s visible?

Thanks in advance for any help.

skins/{your skin}/customer/bottom.tpl

You will find this code in the bottom.tpl file:

{if $manifest.copyright}

{$lang.skin_by} {$manifest.copyright}


assign the link an id (as you see it above in red)

Use javascript to detect the current url, if its not the home page use


Hopefully this helps you out

Thanks very much for your help! :smiley:

You could also wrap that line with an ‘if’ statement:

```php [COLOR=“Red”]{if $controller == ‘index’}[/COLOR]

{$lang.copyright} © {if $smarty.const.TIME|date_format:"%Y" != $settings.Company.company_start_year}{$settings.Company.company_start_year}-{/if}{$smarty.const.TIME|date_format:"%Y"} {$settings.Company.company_name}. {$lang.powered_by} {$lang.copyright_shopping_cart}

[B][COLOR="red"]{/if}[/COLOR][/B] ```

You could either add it directly to the bottom.tpl or you could use the index:bottom hook available in bottom.tpl; if you use the hook, your changes will not be overwritten in an upgrade.


Bob definitely has the better way :slight_smile:

Thank you Bob!

Why bump a thread from February to say thank you. What a waste.

Hello Tbirnseth,

You don’t understand why?

1 - It’s a very helpful answer

2 - I can find it faster next time!

3 - I don’t know why Bob Jobosales no longer post

In fact, I have a dream that Bob, one of a few good members, reply me!

You woke me up, my dream is shattered. :frowning:

Yes it is the correct way

Catch the controller and the start the functions that we want to do.

Thanks Bob
