Kunena 5.1.18 Released (30 Jun 2020)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.18 [K 5.1.18] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.1 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.1.
Question Removing kunena footer on backend
Then there is the basic fact that I PAID for this extension to use on MY site and I should be able to decide what is displayed on the site, NOT the extension developer! I am all for supporting and giving credit where credit is due. It is not professional, nor is it acceptable practice for any company (big or small) to feel they should dictate what I do and do not show on my website.
The bottom line is this action on these extension developers part is rude and takes the control away from me to deliver a quality, simple solution for my clients. The less clutter on a site the better and linking to something that my clients have no clue about is ridiculous and servers absolutely no purpose for them!
The retention of the information has nothing to do with whether or not you paid for the extension. It's simply a matter of understanding the licensing terms. If you want to use Kunena then you have to accept the licensing terms; if you don't accept the licensing terms, then you should not use Kunena.

If you modify Kunena in any way, you must retain the copyright information in order to be compliant with the GPL. This also means if you fork it (the original Fireboard copyright notices are still in Kunena from the fork). The moment you remove any copyright notice you are in violation. Not only do you break the law, but you violate the spirit of open source software we all work so hard to support.
The "Powered by Kunena" link isn't a copyright notice. It's an acknowledgement of sorts. You can remove it if you wish, but don't be surprised if nobody wants to help you do it. I recommend against removing the footer in the backend because it contains the version & build information and there's no backend MVC in Joomla to prevent it from being overwritten when you upgrade.
