Many of you have had custom work done on your sites including theme work.  Sometimes developers take it on themselves to remove the Oxwall Attribution without proper permission from Oxwall. 


The attribution is a link with text "Powerd By Oxwall" and even sometimes a Oxwall image which is placed on the footer of the website to let everyone know that you are proudly using Oxwall. 


You can find out about removing the Attribution legally by visiting the Donation link at the bottom of this page.


Some of you do not realize that this violates the Oxwall Terms.  You need to place this attribute back in the footer ASAP. 


We cannot offer you any support from this forum until you do so.   Some of you may ask "how do i put it back".


Answer: Well you will need to put back the code in your theme master pages that was removed. Ask your theme develper to do so. They will know what you are talking about.  However there is another way you can do this which is much easier and still effective. 


Since some of you admins do not know how to code.  Simply go to admin - settings - page settings and in the box that shows

"Custom tail code"  copy and paste this code into that box.


<div>

  <center>

   <a href="https://developers.oxwall.com/" target="_blank"><strong>Powered By Oxwall</strong></a>

  </center>

</div>



and then click save at the bottom of the page.


This will place a text link at the bottom of your website.  This is not like the original but it will be valid until you can place the original one back.  



 Now if you know how to code in HTML and you know about how to edit a theme master file, then here is the original code that must be returned to the master file in the files footer section.


           <div class="ow_copyright">
                {text key='base+copyright'}
            </div>
            <div style="float:right;padding-bottom: 30px;">
                {$bottomPoweredByLink}
            </div>


Thank you for using and sharing Oxwall.
