Blasted copyright.

I'm working on a skin for my board, and I've got one really irksome problem. I can't find the dang copyright for vbIndex. It appears on the pages as it should, but it appears below a border I have placed around all my content. This means it is seperated by about ten pixels of space from the Jelsoft copyright. I want the vbIndex copyright inline with the Jelsoft copyright, so I have three nice, neat lines in one place, not two lines, thick border, out-of-place copyright.

I've searched the phrases, searched the templates, and scanned the index.php file, but I can't find where the copyright is generated! How do I move it?

You mean the template VBINDEX_footer? I've already completly re-coded it. The vbIndex copyright isn't template controlled. I've attached an image that displays the problem. My footer ends with that black border, there is no vbindex copyright code in the footer template.

What I want to do is move the copyright up with the Jelsoft copyright so everything is uniform, neat and clean, tidey and tight.

Updated image, same problem. I added a footer image to hold the copyright for vB, and now I'd like to put the vbIndex copyright underneath the footer links (contact, admin, mod, etc).

Try viewing source, that might give you a better idea. Or search in phrases / templates for those words.

A search in the templates for 'MMIV Winter Systems' yeilds 0 results. A search in the phrase manager for 'MMIV Winter Systems' yeilds 0 results. Yesterday it yielded 1 result, but I replaced the text with a line break only in an attempt to see if that was what was being called. It wasn't, because I still have the problem.

That's what I'm thinking. Except I'm not good enough at hacking php to be able to tell what code could be an obfuscated bit of text generation. I've scanned over the file a couple times already, and tried removing stuff, but nothing has worked so far.

Try doing a search for "$home[footer]" or "footer" in the PHP file.

The vBindex copyright is to be found in the vbi_copyright phrase

I've already found that, and removed the text. No change, the copyright is still being displayed.

I did a search in my vbindex file, and I couldn't find that string, nor any instance of 'vbi_copyright' or '$vboptions['templateversion']'. I may have already removed it.

The contents of the vbi_copyright phrase:

The part that you are looking to move is:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you remove the <br /> tag your vBindex copyright will be inline with the Jelsoft copyright

That's the thing though, my vbi_copyright phrase consists entirly of

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

.

moments later...

I just deleted the phrase vbi_copyright from my database. However, the copyright is still being displayed at the very bottom of the page, as shown above.

Edit: Just want to say thanks for the help. I tend to come off as being short and a bit brisk. I don't intend to be, I'm just a bit ticked at this problem.

You might want to check your main vBulletin footer as well, as that may be the actual cause of the problem, not the phrase above
