NOTE: This article is supposed to be for educational purposes only.

This is tested on virtuemart 1.1.4 running on Joomla! 1.5

When we install virtuemart on joomla! it shows the logo for virtue mart on each shop page with link to virtuemart site.

Yes, its their right to show it because it’s their script and they are providing this script for free. However, i will show you in this article where is this link / image generated from and if it can easily be removed or is it just a simple code placed there.

Goto the file virtuemart.php at the location:

<joomla root>/components/com_virtuemart/virtuemart.php

Open the file in dreamweaver or your favorite editor.

Goto line 180, 181 and 182, you will see this part of code:

if(SHOWVERSION && !$is_popup) {
 include(PAGEPATH ."footer.php");

This is the code that displays the virtuemart logo with the link to their site at the bottom of all the shop pages in the joomla! 1.5.

If you want to hide this code, simply remove these three lines (180, 181 and 182) and this image and link will be removed!
