Als Änderung kann man nun ansehen was man will, dass Verschieben an eine andere Stelle würde ich persönlich ganz klar dazuzählen...
last few entries...look at the login page...
if somone contributes so much then why do they change the login.php page....???
@trip: yes it does, you can edit the frontend-looking like you want to have, there is also no copyright required. if you are a nice boy, you can honor OG's work e.g. in your imprint.
But, you don't have the right to remove any copyright notice that is in the source code.
But, you can change the looking of the backend and therefor you can move the copyright to an other position, but no removing.
And with moving i don't mean this copyright notice:
Code: Select all
<!-- phpwcms | open source web content management system developed by Oliver Georgi (webverbund.de) released under The GNU General Public License visit project page: http://www.phpwcms.de //-->
You say "we would rather people not really know what cms we are using in order to keep a bit of anonymity in hopes of better security."
Do you really belive the security of phpWCMS is so low ?
Why are you using a application that you don't trust enough that you want to hide what application you are using ?
Do you really think that a hacker who wants to try to hack your website don't look at the source code ?
A hacker don't look at the backend text as the importend thing they look of course at the source code the first thing they do, or do you really think they don't ? Your explanation looks to me just a try to hide the fact that you use phpWCMS and to try to take som credits from the author.
Of course, the largest reason for the placing the copyright in the source was because it takes away needless details for those that use the cms. They do not care what the name of the cms is that powers their site. They just want to be able to update their website. This doesn't mean that we don't tell them it is phpwcms. I have actually formally trained many clients to use phpwcms. Part of the training involves taking a look at these forums to find answers when they get stuck. My main point here is that it is no secret what cms we use and we have no intention of "hiding" what cms it is.
I hope that no one misunderstands what I have said. I think I was very unclear before so I hope this takes away any confusion. I also want to make it clear that if anything I did was incorrect, I am more than happy to fix it.
On the positive side of things, this dialog can help others to understand what is ok and what is wrong with these sorts of issues.
