How to remove powered by vanilla on vanilla forums?

Hello again!

I want to remove the POWERED BY VANILLA logo on the bottom of a vanilla forum page (look here in the footer: I also want to change to copyright to my company’s copyright. Is there any way to do this… Here is a old topic on the vanilla forum archive, but It is confusing : (Removing the logo and editing the copyright is allowed in the license.)

Thanks! :smile:

Well, this kind of seams like something to ask their community, but this part does make sense from the fourm link you provided. Just change the text from “Powered By Vanilla” or something else, or add the CSS line.


I forgot to mention… this is confusing because I am using the default keystone theme so I dont have the custom.css ’

The community is a bit dead though

open the file custom_cerulean.css

find this line (the first one you come across) use CTRL + F (search for “col-logo”) in some txt editor.

Footer .col-logo{-ms-flex-pack:end;-webkit-box-pack:end;justify-content:flex-end}

and change into this

.Footer .col-logo{-ms-flex-pack:end;-webkit-box-pack:end;justify-content:flex-end;display:none!important}

I don’t know if that forum uses any cache if yes then it is necessary to delete the cache in it as well as in your browser after modification


Thanks OxyDac! I removed the footer logo (can check at )!

Can anyone help me in how to change the “© Vanilla Keystone Theme 2021” text in the footer next to the logo? I want to edit the text a little. Thanks for the help!

P.S. yes you need to reset your cache


You may need to edit the theme files for that.

In the theme should be a file at views/default.master.tpl. At the end of that file is the HTML/PHP code which renders the theme. You can edit that code to show whatever you want.


i think your forum is broken because when i try registering it says ths

and also thre is an annoying thing in vanilla that you can’t turn off called ‘why u want to join’ and it doesnt work but there is an addon to remove it. i recommend u get it so people can register

just download ‘’ and upload the folder in there to /plugins/ and go to your plugins section in the dashboard and install it and people can now register
also fix your captcha

Thanks Admin!

Ok I activated and also updated my captca!
