Another mod brought to you by,


This is a pretty cool mod that completely redesigns your forums footer. It adds everything into a block, and has four columns to display different info in them.
Inspiration came from Advanced Footer Rework coded by The Rocketeer and Awesome footer with Social Icons coded by socialteenz. Problem with those two mods that I had is it was all template editing, and I really don't like template edit mods on sites, I prefer it is all done automatically.

Another feature of this mod, is there is settings for the mod, that you can enter any custom code that any other mods have told you to add to the beginning or end of your footer. Again, this is designed so you do not have to do template editing.

It is a simple installation, upload the contents of the UPLOAD folder then import the product XML, ozzmodz_advanced_footer

You can edit the options under the settings, [OzzModz] Advanced Footer Settings
There is three ACP interface pages to add/edit the recommended links, quick links and the social media links.

Below is what the mod looks like running on the site.



Major Features

No Additional Queries: The awesome part of this mod is it uses the datastore, so it adds no additional queries to the site.

Disable On Styles: You can disable this mod on any style, in case it breaks the style.

Interactive Main ACP Pages: When viewing the links you added, you can set the display order, toggle the active status, toggle the _nofollow and toggle if the site opens in a new tab or same tab, all without editing each entry individually.

Unlimited Links: You can have as many links in each column as you want, there is no limits..

Usergroup Permissions: When adding or editing a link, you can select which usergroups can see the link.

Turn off/on the settings in the mod for the RSS and Archive a couple of times, they should show. Some sites it takes awhile, and I don't know why.

True. I like the fact that I can add whatever I want to it quite easily. And it hides my long ugly list of credits/trademarks/linkbacks from plugin authors...

Plus, those all are still there, in the source code for search engines to still pick up. Therefore you're not (really) violating the "agreements" to not remove branding. It isn't removed.

I like this mod

But I do wonder why it adds copyright as follows:
"Powered by vBulletin™ Version 4.2.2
Copyright 2015 vBulletin Solutions, Inc. All rights reserved."

When mod is disabled, the copyright doesnt show and I yes, I paid for branding free vbulletin

Can't speak 100 percent for Ozzy, but I am pretty sure he did that just to be compliant with his Mod, on non-branding free installations of vBulletin. I am pretty sure you can just edit it out of the Ozzmodz Advanced Footer template. In fact I am very sure you can.

Yeah edit the template ozzmodz_advanced_footer_footer and comment out the copyright line, that is probably what you did in your other footer.
