The Kunena forum component is one of the most popular and useful components for the Joomla CMS. At the bottom of the component you see a link back to the author of the component, in this article you will learn how to remove it.

It is always recommended to give credits to the developer, specially when they are so gracious as to make their product free of charge. If you are removing the footer link back, please consider making a contribution to the developer or linking and attributing the developers in some other way.

Follow the steps if it is necessary for you to remove the "Powered By Kunena Forum" footer link in Kunena version 5.x.

Step 1

Access your Joomla file structure, follow this path and open "display.php":  /libraries/kunena/controller/application/display.php

Step 2

Find the following code (use ctrl + F)

$credits .= JHtml::_( 
'kunenaforum.link', 'index.php?option=com_kunena&view=credits',
JText::_('COM_KUNENA_POWEREDBY'), '', '', '',
array('style' => 'display: inline; visibility: visible; text-decoration: none;'));
$credits .= ' <a style="display: inline; visibility: visible; text-decoration: none;" href="#"
target="_blank">' . JText::_('COM_KUNENA') . '</a>';

Step 3

Comment the code out and simply change it to:

/*$credits .= JHtml::_( 
'kunenaforum.link', 'index.php?option=com_kunena&view=credits',
JText::_('COM_KUNENA_POWEREDBY'), '', '', '',
array('style' => 'display: inline; visibility: visible; text-decoration: none;'));
$credits .= ' <a style="display: inline; visibility: visible; text-decoration: none;" href="#"
target="_blank">' . JText::_('COM_KUNENA') . '</a>';*/

Step 4

Save the changes to the "display.php" file. Now, the footer should be gone.

Explanation

The code in question prints out forum footer. You are simply commenting the snippet of code so that when the page is rendered that code is ignored, and it becomes inactive.
