Buddypress strapline

    There has been a lot of discussion about spammers targeting the ‘powered by buddypress’ text in the footer. Would an option be to create a powered by buddypress logo, that way those who choose to abandon the text can at least acknowledge the work you guys are putting it. I know that its not as accessible, but it is an alternative…

    Well, technically most anything that links to BuddyPress is able to be found:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=link%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fbuddypress.org%2F&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

    So a footer logo would link, presumably, to buddypress.org.

    So don’t link it.

    You could always use some simple javascript obfuscation too. Not foolproof, but better than nothing.

    That would work.

    My point was that whatever method you use needs to still provide the same level of protection from spammers or else you might as well leave the “powered by…” intact.

    Agreed.

    Whilst that’s true, I think for those of us who are not great developers, coders or web stylists, having something that shows recognition even if its not linked is a better alternative than just deleting it from the footer…

    but of course with the logo I presume copyrighted, it would need to be an offical ‘powered by’ one to be used only for specified purposes.

    I’m guessing that those developers who are able to combat the spammers with a greater degree of control then perhaps it is a non-issue.

    It was just a thought.
