Change The admin footer Links/footer content sitewide for WordPress Multisite/BuddyPress based sites

Well, I believe wp guys have got excellence in making things easier for the developers.

Last day, I had a client asking me to do something which will allow him to change the footer text sitewide(for all blogs) on his buddypress based blog network(or social network :)).

I googled it and found something similar, but was a paid plugin(ahh, the membership fee was too much for me to afford for one plugin), so I decided to  investigate further.

After Looking at admin-footer.php, It seemed a trivial task.

there exists a filter “admin_footer_text”, which allows you to change the footer content. Glad, I could never know, It was so easy.

So, I went ahead and put an option in the SiteAdmin->Options and, yeh, Now the Site admin can change the footer globally.

So here goes the plugin for you:


What It does:-

It allows SiteAdmin to change the footer links/text globally/sitewide on their wordpress mu/wordpress mu+buddypress based site.

How to use it.

Install It like, any other wordpress Mu plugin.
Please note, It must be activated sitewide

Go to SiteAdmin->Options as shown here

Site Admin Options

Now look for something which says  “Sitewide Footer Content” as shown below


Enter the text/html you want, and Click Update options.

wow, you are Done, Now check the footer, It should show the text/html you entered.

Here is a screen shot from my local test system.


Hope you will like it.

  • Thank you. It’s working on a test WPMU install with MU2.9 trunk-r2011 with BuddyPress 1.1.3 trunk-2163 with internal bbpress. Cheers.
