Default Getting rid of a (publicity) link in the footer of my shop

Hi Everyone:

The people that installed my Xcart 4,3 put a little link to their webpage (for publicity purposes) in the footer of my xcart page just beside the copyright.

Any ideas on what directory it may be placed in so I can get rid of it through FTP?

Like always, thank you all.

Use the webmaster mode to find the exact template that was putted in. Most likely in skin1/customer/bottom.tpl but could be home.tpl, or other template - just depends

Hi Steve:

I can't find it with the webmaster or in home.tpl or customer/home. I also looked at customer bottom and I havent had any luck yet. Any other ideas please?

Hi again:

unfortunatelly I have tried that too. Its a link and not plain text so Im assuming I'll have to change it using Dreamweaver and doing it through FTP but I just can't find where it is

The text is in the footer so it appears in all the store's pages (annoying)

Thank you any way and please let me know if you get any more ideas

I would FTP your site down to your local PC, and then search for the text in the skin directory.

Look in home.tpl which template is called for the footer, then look in that template, if it calls another template look in there... just follow the path. Language variables can hold links or plain text, it doesn't matter so it may still be a langauge variable. Hard to tell you where to find it without seeing the source code of your store

It is most likely in skin/common_files/customer/bottom.tpl looking at the site structure. The finest shops sure left there mark there didn't they?

Annoying, still cant find it so last resort: email the company and ask to remove it themselves...
