Remove Rockettheme Copyright Footer
There are many great templates available at the Rockettheme website. I would encourage any designer or developer to purchase a subscription as it is extremely cheap compared to how many beautiful themes that they offer members.
With that said, I dont think that they should place all kinds of links in the footer. There is usually a Rockettheme logo as well as a copyright in the footer of every template. They don't make it easy to remove for non developers so here is how. I do want to say that each theme can vary in terms of which files need to be edited. This particular tutorial is footer removal for the "Akiraka" theme.
To Remove the Logo
To remove the logo from the footer, log in and navigate to yoursite.com/templates/rocketthemefolder/index.php
Open the index.php folder and look for the following line, usually near the bottom. The link can vary between different templates but it will definitely look something like this
Delete the entire line and upload the file back to your website
To Change the Logo
You need to create an image (Around the same size) and save it as the same name as the logo. What is tricky is that in different templates the logo image file can be named differently and also in different folders of the template. Below are some examples.
Momentum Theme - The logo is named rocket.png and is located in templatefolder/images/overlays/dark/rocket.png. If your template uses multiple styles, there will probably be multiple folders in the images directory that correspond to that style. In this case, we are changing the footer logo of the "Dark" style.
Camber Theme - This particular template uses a Rockettheme logo and a "Powered by Gantry" logo in the footer. The Rockettheme logo is called copyright.png and is located in templatefolder/images/body/main/copyright.png. The Gantry logo is located in the same folder.
The easiest thing to do might be to download the entire template folder to your computer so you can sort through the images folder and find the logo files, then just replace them.
Remove the "Powered By" or "Designed By" text next to the logo - open the file "en-GB.tpl_rt_yourtheme_j15.ini" which should be in the same template root folder as index.php or possibly in a folder named "languages" It will look something like
INC_FONT_SIZE=Increase Text Size
DEC_FONT_SIZE=Decrease Text Size
Just delete the text you want gone
Next, we'll remove the Rockettheme copyright text. There may be a template parameter that you can change in the backend, so check that first by going to your Joomla admin area then Extensions->Template Manager and click on your Rockettheme template. Check out the available parameters and see if there is one to change or delete the footer text.
If not, the text could be in the "en-GB.tpl_rt_yourtheme_j15.ini" file. If it isnt there either, then check the index.php file for it. It should be in one of these areas.
From there you should see some options to change. The footer line should be under SLOGAN. Delete or replace it.
If you still do not find where to remove these, please comment on this post and let me know which theme you are using and I will see if I can find it for you.
