I want to put 3 links at the bottom of my webpage exactly like at the site of XOOPS here and to open at the main page of my site.
1) Terms of use
2) Privacy policy
3) “Advertise to us” link

Which file do I have to add code, what code and how to put my own text of terms of use for example?

Thank u very much.

You could either stick it in a block, or edit the theme.html file found in your themes folder.

the html code used can be:

<a href='http://www.website.com'>Title of link</a>


Or if your using a block you can use BBCode.

Hope this is of some help.

Hello Tom.


I prefer to do that by editing the theme.html

The prob is i don't know where to put what!

Thanks for your answer.

What theme is it?

If I have it on my system, I look at the layout.

It's pretty easy to do, perhaps something like a html educational site could help you:

http://www.w3schools.com/

There are other sites out there, but this is a good start.

If your really stuck let me know

It appears to me you want to change the footer.

I have a test site setup for the purpose of helping to lead people through questions like this.

http://www.xoops.net.br/

you may enter the site with full access with guest and letmein as password if you need to get to areas not normally available to see and test the results of what you are about to preform on your own site before plunging in.

This link will take you directly there.

http://upnrunnin.hypermart.net/xoops0 ... nces&op=show&confcat_id=3

Footer: current code.
Powered by XOOPS 2.0 © 2001-2007 <a href="https://xoops.org/" target="_blank">The XOOPS Project</a>

You would adjust this code to make your own links.
follow the format to make your link as shown by The XOOPS Project link.

This link MAY NOT be the one needed and the information I GAVE MAY NOT be correct. Anyone who has the theme information needed is invited to enter and publish the link that clearly demostrates what is needed to accomplish her/his solution.

After testing please try to leave it as it was originally.
Mistakes are forgiven ... so don't let it worry you if you boo boo.

@Tom.
I am interested too Tom, so would you mind providing the necessary link using the example above. I know where it is in the footer, but I don't know how or where to find it in the theme html. (with my setup)

@psaxtiri
Good luck and let me know if this is what you needed.
Thanks

Yes that may work, but this depends on the theme he's using and if the theme designer has used the <{$xoops_footer}> tag.

If the designer has not, then it will need to be manually done, and your way would have absolutely no affect.

This is why I asked what theme he was using, in order to better advise further.

Sorry I missed the bit directed to me.

Ok the admin area for the footer information is dependant on the theme being used containing the <{$xoops_footer}> code.

It is the <{$xoops_footer}> that instructs the theme to pull the footer information from the database.

In a lot of occasions, theme designers tend not to use the X default footer, and opt for their own which if the user does not edit will maintain credit and a back link.

I can't tell you specifically where this information is in a theme, without first looking at the code, as designers have their own styles of coding.

I think this is why I couldn't get to the information for the correct answer.

As I have previously asked and haven't resolved yet. 4) I do not have this theme automatically available as a possible default theme (not having cloned it) The procudure for doing this does not come naturally and needs to be clearly explained. I would appreciate help to get any theme I have, default selectable.


Thanks

You're confusing themes with templates. Please see XOOPS for Dummies.
